Thanksgiving McCormick Review and Giveaway

I started learning how to cook and bake at a very young age. I always enjoyed it and was pretty darn good at it, or so I thought.

Until I tried to make Thanksgiving dinner all on my own for the first time. I thought that since I’d made plenty of dinners, it couldn’t possibly be much different.

But of course, I’d never cooked a turkey before.

And trying to figure out the timing of cooking all the other dishes, getting everything fully cooked- not burnt and not done so early that it would be cold by the time that it was served, was a little more of a challenge than I’d bargained for.

I think the only things that didn’t stress me out were the rolls(store-bought) and the McCormick’s Turkey Gravy Mix. Since even my stressed out self couldn’t mess up store bought rolls and an easy mix. Thankfully, gravy can cover a multitude of culinary sins. McCormick’s gravy comes out lump-free every time and is made with natural spices, no artificial flavors or colors, no MSG, and has zero grams of trans fat.


This Thanksgiving is the first in a while that I’ll once again be in charge of the whole meal and I’m hoping this one goes a little smoother than my first!

To make your holidays a little smoother, I have a great giveaway for you from McCormick!

  1. Karen says

    I love the turkey gravy because it is easy to have on hand for those times when, like you said, I need to cover up a cooking sin.  

  2. Mary Beth Elderton says

    I love McCormick gravy for the consistency.   It’s so easy to use that I don’t save it for holidays.  I even ad it to ordinary casseroles  and weeknight meals.

  3. Hanna says

    I love that it’s easy and always tastes good! I’m not the best cook- but I can always count on the gravy tasting good.

  4. April Yedinak says

    I like their gravy because it is so much easier than trying to make my own from scratch- getting the hot drippings from the pan without 2nd degree burns is always a challenge.  McCormick is so much faster and safer (for a klutz like me).

  5. Cindy A. says

    Thank you for offering such a generous giveaway. I like McCormick Turkey Gravy because it tastes great and is so simple to make. Like you, I am the only cook in the kitchen, so I welcome the help from McCormick.

  6. Sue Ellison says

    I have never tried their turkey gravy, but I do make their country gravy all the time, It’s easy to make, tastes great, and turns out great each time.

  7. Ann Fantom says

    I like McCormick’s Turkey Gravy because it a quick and easy way to make a great tasting gravy.

  8. Karin C says

    My family cant tell the difference so it’s always McCormick gravy in our house…so easy and flavorful.

    My turkey-baking skills have always been marginal at best and you’re right: a good gravy covers up a lot of culinary sins!

  10. Racheal S says

    Love Mccormick gravives, I use them to add volume to my homemade gravy or on their own. Either way they are quick, easy & tasty.

  12. Dijah A says

    I like it because it tastes great, and you really can’t go wrong with it. It’s easy to dress up and make it as thick or thin as you’d like also.

    I don’t make homemade gravy because I eat only fish, but I love the flavor of turkey gravy so I opt to use McCormicks everytime.

    I like McCormick Gravy because it adds to the flavor of the turkey without overpowering it and it seems that most people love its flavor!

    I like it first and foremost because it takes the difficulty out of making a good gravy, and it always has just the right consistency, which I could never achieve with gravy made from scratch!

  17. Vikki Billings says

    The reason I love McCormick’s Turkey gravy is because I love the taste of it, love the price and also love how easy it is to make!

    I love it as it always taste as if you had made the gravy from scratch. It always comes out so smooth and is so easy to make.
