My Family Uses Goya Daily

Feb 2, 2013 Goya (2)eeditedI can't remember a time when we weren't using a Goya product with our meals. I am not even sure when it started. It may have started back when I was around 19 or 20, living on my own and eventually with Manny, a short, hot, Puerto Rican guy who was way older, had a kid and I found him so damn hot. So if he wanted his meals cooked with Goya beans and seasonings, damn it, I was going to do it. His pantry and his mom's kitchen was stocked with Goya everything. There was sauce, rice, cookies, candy, pasta, oils, canned goods and more...I don't believe they shopped another aisle at the supermarket. I learned to cook and love the food they made. A girl growing up on spaghetti and meatballs and chicken cutlet and salad was now eating rice and beans with every meal and loving it. He truly made me love trying new foods and I still till this day crave Arroz con pollo, carne frita con cebolla, Pasteles and my favorite Pernil. Delicious!!! 

Ever since than I have purchased Goya! 

Recently I received a box of some of my favorite Goya products as a Bzz Agent

Goya Adobo is literally put on almost everything in my house and we usually buy a large one every month and a half! As for the black beans, there was a time when Goddess, 3-5 years old ate only black beans every single night. I was happy to give it to her because she didn't eat any protein and this was something I knew was good for her and I got her left overs!
