Butterball Goes On Demand

Whole Turkeys

The most helpful resource for holiday preparation is taking their help to the next level –
turkey experts are now just a text away

It isn't the holidays until I share a post and giveaway for Butterball.  I have been partnering with Butterball for the past 5 years, and love hearing from them every October as they have news about a new feature or service to their already popular Turkey Talk Line.  In years past, they added how-to videos and recipes to a Butterball Search, just to name a few.  Now, for 2016, they announced today they will be adding 24/7 texting.  Now you can text your cooking questions to the Butterball Turkey experts starting Nov.17 through Nov. 24th.  In a day and age where we are always glued to our phones and opting for texting over talking to someone, this is wonderful news for us all. :-)

Here is more about the new 24/7 Texting option from Butterball this holiday season.  And, be sure to read on, as I will be offering two lucky readers a chance to win a $20 Butterball check to help with their upcoming grocery shopping for the holidays. :-)

“It’s been more than 35 years and cooks still have the same turkey questions - where to buy, how to thaw, is my turkey done – but what has changed is the way they want to get the information,” said Sue Smith, co-director of the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line. “So to support cook’s evolving needs we’re not only continuing to support with social media, updated website videos with top tips and in-person answers at 1-800-BUTTERBALL, but we’re taking our support one step further by offering 24/7 texting for the first time.”

Is the turkey done yet? You may have heard of lots of different ways to check. But there’s only one way to be sure: using a meat thermometer to check the temperature.

The Butterball Turkey Talk-Line saved the day for me back in 2002 when I cooked my first turkey.  I ran into two issues - not knowing if the turkey was done as it wasn't browning and the popper didn't pop.  And, if that wasn't enough, my mashed potatoes looked more like soup.  Thanks to a sweet turkey expert, she helped me calm down and talked me through the steps to check to see if the turkey was done -- thanks mom for that thermometer a year before that I never used, as it saved the day.  And, with a few tips about the potatoes, I was able to serve a creamy bowl of mashed potatoes that was all the rage at the dinner table, next to the turkey. :-)

I have already watched a handful of the how-to videos, and have learned some new tips including picking the best bird.  And, I will be sure to have the Turkey Talk-Line programmed into my phone in case I need to talk to a turkey expert this Thanksgiving.  Knowing that Butterball is here to help, I know longer stress about cooking up a turkey as I know there are experts standing by to take my call, and now to answer my texts, and help save the day. :-)
