At BlogHer 2010 I met with Jimmy Dean’s The Sun. The sun is a big golden light that all the planets revolve around and he has all kinds of information and knowledge about breakfast. The Sun commercials are quite humorous and when I tell people that I met the sun, they laugh! Not because it is a crazy thought that I met The Jimmy Dean Sun, but because internally they are remembering one of those commercials.
I had a lot of fun talking to the Sun, we chatted for about 30 minutes while the camera men were getting set up. I was most intrigued by the fact that he lived in Washington State for a period of time.
At BlogHer everyone had the opportunity to taste new Jimmy D’s breakfast foods. We were some of the first people to ever try them. They are lower in calories than you would expect any out of the box, into the microwave breakfasts could possible be.
The New Jimmy D’s Griddle Sticks:
These have 7 grams of protein, 8 grams of sugar and only 6 grams of fat. They are sausage wrapped up in a pancake with only 160 calories.
The New Jimmy D’s French Toast Griddlers:
These have 8 grams of protein, 6 grams of sugar and 8 grams of fat. They are french toast sandwiches with turkey sausage in the middle with only 210 calories. Remember that the sandwiches are bigger in size than the griddle sticks.
I tried both of these at blogher, and when I didn’t know how many calories were in them, all I did was have a bite. I was very worried about over eating while I was at the conference so I had a little bit here and a little bit there. I could have easily gotten away with eating the whole thing. After trying both samples, if I had to pick a favorite it would be the Griddle Sticks.
