It makes sense to have this set out in one place, for me to link back to.
Sometimes I get free things from manufacturers, retailers, or other companies. Federal regulation and good freaking sense says that I disclose this to you, so I always will. My agreement when I accept free things for the blog is very simple: I agree to blog about it (and when applicable, to provide links to where it can be purchased, etc). I don't promise to like it or say that I do, just to check it out.
Hypothetically, there are circumstances when even that might not happen -- if the product is lost or damaged in the mail, maybe if the business is deceptive about what they're selling, perhaps if it were sent to me unsolicited (though since neither my address nor my full name is on the blog, I might just have to reward their initiative there), or if I were allergic to peanuts and they sent me peanut butter (but I'm not! feel free to send me peanut butter!) None of that seems likely, but I'm pointing it out as long as I'm making this dedicated post on the topic.
Makers or sellers of things that fit the "interesting ingredients" description of this blog (food, drink, maybe tools if we stretched things), feel free to email me at okaycheckitout at gmail.com
I have lots of partly-composed entries to finish in the coming week, some of which involve free goods, most of which don't. At the moment the pizza post is delayed because I haven't renewed my Flickr pro account, so can't access my pizza photos! I'll take care of that once I've finished Christmas shopping.
