Yep. Thanksgiving post.
This is going to be a busy three days for me so I decided that I would do the "Thanksgiving" post tonight.
It is usually a time of year when food and football are around and no, I'm not one of those mushy types but we all have to be thankful for something? Today I would like to make a confession, not in my wildest dreams would I say this in front of anyone but today I would like to say that I am thankful for Pillsbury Crescent rolls. They not only bring the family together but they bring me to the table! I'm not a huge fan of turkey (the meat kind), sweet potatoes, cranberries or Waldorf salad but these rolls are the greatest little balls of dough you have ever set your eyes on.
Not only can you just eat them in baked form you can create recipes that you wouldn't have ever dreamed of: Cheese triangles, crescent pecan pies, bacon cheddar pinwheels and so much more. The possibilities are endless.
I know what you're probably saying...."What if I don't like them?" Then there is a simple solution really? Play with your food. I'm sure the dough boy would do the same thing.
There is nothing wrong with marketing such a product. Clearly they have their "stuff" together. They not only have a character mascot that is adorable and made out of dough but he goes "Woo hoo" when you push his belly button and he loves cookies. I would expect nothing less and frankly, have grown up with this lovable creature my whole life. The color scheme also works nicely with the blue and white complementing each other.
The best part about the whole crescent roll experience is that you will be able to eat in peace without gagging at aunt Gina's horror of a potato roll or uncle Billy's torched turn-overs.
So the next time you are sitting at your table and are about to say your Thanksgiving prayer everyone really try to remember what you are thankful for. And... if your going to pray, pray for a better season in football...
