Be inspired by ♥ Freshline From Spar

Gordons Bay is a small fishing village. situated 65km outside of Cape Town. We do not have a bank, a secondary school or a movie theatre. We do however have a Spar, and this is a convenient place for me to do my shopping. Spar have recently launched their Freshline range of products and I was given R200 to spend towards promoting this range. I decided to buy a lot of soups, but I could have purchased bakery items, salads or vegetables as well. The soups seemed to be the best option for me as I can freeze them and take one out each morning for work lunches when I know I am going to be in the office. And, if Dave is nice to me, he can even get to share my lunch.

Spar’s Freshline range of foods are convenient and all products can be traced from soil to store. The bakery products are baked the same way you would at home. Spar have also given me a R300 gift card voucher which you can win! All you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me what you would add to your Freshline soup for a lunch time treat. Bonus entries will be counted if you leave a comment with the answer, on my facebook page or you tweet me your response. The winner will be decided by random draw and my decision is final. This competition is only open to South African residents and closes at midnight on the 19th of October (South African time).

Freshline From Spar — 28 Comments

  1. Spar is where I shop in our local town too, so a voucher would be very welcome. The dilemma would be whether to splurge on luxuries like Nomu cocoa or follow your sensible soup suggestion.

  6. Spar have definitely upped their ante….they have some fab products and their freshline range is great. I love to add a dollop of rosemary pesto to the minestrone and enjoy it with some of their fab ciabbata which I make into thin crispy garlic herb crouton slices that I can manage to crumble into the soup and eat at this stage of my oral reconstructive journey. I also love the spicy tomato soup and thoroughly enjoy it with a spoonful of Basil Pesto and creme fraiche added to it. Mmmmmmm hungry now! Fabulous prize Tandy xx

  7. Here in the UK – as you will know, Tandy- Spar are just tiny corner stores which stay open after all the supermarkets have shut! These soups look yummy…

  13. Seems Gordon’s Bay and Sundays River have lots in common, although I think our village is substantially smaller. Thankfully we also have a Spar.
    This is a fantastic prize Tandy. I love the packaging of the Freshline products. I would add some hot buttered toast to dunk into my soup.
    Have a super weekend.
    🙂 Mandy

  14. Hi Tandy, I love Spar!
    I have also found their Freshline range and love the packaging and the flavours on offer.
    I think with some divine Butternut soup I would have one of the gorgeous chunky breads or ciabatta’s that the Spar bakery offer.
