Anniversary giveaway #3: 1 sweet + 1 savory crepe from Crepes Paulette.

nwafoodie savory crepe sweet crepe

*** Winner Update! Liz, lucky #47 wins this AWESOME giveaway for 1 sweet crepe and 1 savor crepes from Crepes Paulette! Congrats! ***

The day isn’t over yet… are you ready for today’s giveaway?

Welcome to Day 3 of nwafoodie’s annual anniversary week of giveaways!  Since it’s my-blog-turned-three anniversary week, you deserve seven days of thank you giveaways.  Have you checked out Day 1 and Day 2 yet?

Today’s gift comes courtesy of Crepes Paulette, the best food truck in Northwest Arkansas, in my humble opinion.  What makes Crepes Paulette so utterly out-of-this world?  They melt in your mouth, that’s why!  This is an authentic French crepe cart, baby.  The real stuff.  They put the “ooo” in oolala!  Paula and her husband Frederick, are the owners of this downtown Bentonville icon (the truck even has a name, Madam Poupon).   Frederick is French-born, a chef, and the two of them are charming, adorable, and real. If you have never had a crepe before, now is your chance to have a savory crepe of your choice (think eggs, or spinach, or salsa, or mustard, yes, definitely mustard) and you also get a sweet crepe of your choice (truthfully, you must have one with nutella, it would be a shame if you didn’t try this one).

If you drove past this scene... wouldn't you want to check it out?  
 Prize:

A lucky someone will be receiving one savory crepe of your choice and one sweet crepe of your choice from Crepes Paulette food truck in downtown Bentonville, off the square.  You lucky ducky.

Contest ends next Friday, September 14th at noon (CDT).  I will pick a winner via randomizer.

Eligibility:

Leave me a comment with your name, email, blog, facebook, or twitter name so I contact you if you are the winner (need help on how to leave a comment?). 

Comment question: 

Q: Have you ever had a crepe before? What is your favorite kind of crepe?  Or, if you’ve never had one… do you think you would prefer a sweet or savory crepe?

+1 extra entry:  Tweet this giveaway (tag “@nwafoodie” and leave an extra comment to let me know!)

+1 extra entry:  Facebook this giveaway (tag “nwafoodie” in the giveaway and leave an extra comment to let me know!)

No purchase necessary to enter. Contest void where prohibited. Contest open to members who are 18 years or older. Contest open only to US residents only.  Although this really giveaway only makes sense if you live close enough to visit this store in Bentonville.
  
Eat well, my friends.  Eat well.

    1. It is mesmerizing, isn't it? In the summertime, the kiddos can play in the splash zone across the street, you can buy fresh produce and sundries at the farmer's market on Wednesday, or in the winter go ice skating! All with a crepe in one hand!

  7. I'd like to enter! I have only had one crepe before, a homemade nutella crepe my friend made me. I didn't know there were savory crepes, but I think I might prefer sweet... not sure! : ) May have to try both if I win. I've never heard of Crepes Paulette either! Good to know.

  15. Sweet and Savory! When you visit Crepes Paulette, you have to have BOTH.

  16. I've had a crepe once when I was in Japan a few years ago. They had lots of crepe places, but I didn't really care for it. I'd definitely love to try one of the crepes at Crepes Paulette. I think I'd like a sweet one :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Crepes are definitely French -- so for your own sake you must try a real one. :)

      Delete
  17. For savory, I like spinach, or cheese. Sweet is more difficult there are so many choices! I like the plain with lemon and powdered sugar, or walnut and banana.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't had a lot of crepes other than Hugo's. I checked out the Crepes Paulette menu. I'm a fan of anything with Pesto, so I'd like to try la jardin!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That one is my favorite - pesto and chicken is a perfect pairing! Good luck!

      Delete
    2. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place! My friends and I have been there many times. I drive from Springdale just to go there! I have tried the la complete and the la pistou (by far my favorite and hard to order anything other than this)!!! I was afraid of the savory crepes at first but I like them almost more than the sweet. Depends on my mood that day! Sweet crepe... I've only had the nutella and nutella/fresh strawberry. You can't go wrong with either! Although one day I want to try the la s'more! I may have to make a trip to Bentonville in the next few days. My mouth is watering! I would love to win this giveaway!

      Delete
    3. Yes... it is very necessary that you make this trip in the next few days. You need to try the nutella and banana. And the la complete and the la pistou misses you.

    Crepes Paulette is my favorite!!!!! And they're walking distance from my work (another plus). I like getting the spicy chicken and the delicious. I do the spicy piggy when they don't have the chicken. I've gotten my boyfriend and co-workers hooked as well.

    Tried the other crepe place in pinnacle, cause was advised it was good. It's got nothing compared to Paulette's.

  29. I have not tried Paulette's yet because the line is always so long and my 2 1/2 year old is usually with me but I do love crepes!! Ate them for 7 days straight in Paris and have yet to find any as good in the states... this just made me more determined to get there sans toddler!!

    1. It's good for your 2 1/2 year old to know that it is perfectly acceptable to wait in line for a wonderful food experience. :)

      Eat them and experience Paris all over again. Talk to Paula's husband Frederick because he is from France and has an awesome accent. Oooolala

The family favorite was the sweet turtle-- warm chocolate and pecans.... So good! Yummmmy!!!!!! And loved talking with the owner as we waited for our order. Can't wait to go back!

  35. I love Crepes Paulette! I used to love sweet crepes but can no longer have gluten. The buckwheat crepes are gluten free though - yay! My favorite on CP's menus is the #1 with jalapenos. My favorite sweet crepe was anything with Nutella.

    Replies
    1. Aimee, I was gluten-free for five years and used the buckwheat crepes for both the sweet and savory. I think I kinda' like them better. Try it, you can still have your crepe and eat it, too.
