A Southern Grace: martha, martha, martha!

martha, martha, martha!


New products and a new partnership!

In the 1940s, Martha White began sponsoring Nashville’s famous Grand Ole Opry, the country’s longest-running live radio broadcast. It should therefore come as no surprise that the J.M. Smucker Company is launching an exciting partnership between Martha White and the Country Music Association. As a longtime fan of Martha White products, I'm excited to help promote this partnership!

Martha White is giving away four grand prizes of a trip for two to the 49th Annual CMA Awards in Nasvhille. Each grand prize consists of the following:

*Two (2) tickets from a major airport near winner’s home (determined by the sponsor in its sole discretion) to Nashville, TN;
*Two (2) nights’ accommodations at a hotel determined by the sponsor in its sole discretion (single room, double occupancy);
*Ground transportation to and from destination airport and hotel and to and from hotel and music experience;
*Two (2) tickets to the CMA awards, plus a music experience for two (2) that includes a tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame/Museum and a special recording experience;
*Lunch and dinner on day 1 and breakfast, lunch, and dinner on day 2 (all details determined by the sponsor in its sole discretion); and
*Travel agent services. (Winner must travel on November 3, 2015, and return on November 5, 2015, or prize will be forfeited. Click here for official rules.)

You can find more information and sign up here, and you can connect with Martha White via the website, Facebook, and/or Pinterest.

In the meantime, check out some of the newer products from Martha White: There's sweet potato muffin mix, gluten free chocolate chocolate chip muffin mix, gluten free sweet yellow cornbread and muffin mix, and gluten free blueberry muffin mix. The mixes can be adapted to make cakes, cobblers, and even cookies!
