Live From Gloucester Crossing Market Basket With Gorton’s Smart & Crunchy Fish Stick Truck!




Gorton’s “Smarty Cruchman” promoting a New line of never fried fish sticks that have 50% less fat then their orginal fish sticks… This tour started at their headquarters here in Gloucester Ma. this morning and moved to Gloucester Crossing Market Basket parking lot for their 2nd tour stop.  The truck tour will be traveling across the country all the to Seattle, Washington promoting this new fish stick product!


I had the pleasure of sampling Gorton’s newest fish stick product, “Smart & Crunchy,” and I’m happy to announce that I give it a “THUMBS UP” for crunch and flavor !

Look for “Smarty Crunchman” at the North Shore Mall this coming weekend near JCPenney where they’ll have a promotion booth and sweepstake opportunity for a trip worth $10,000. All details about their cross country tour and the sweepstake can be found on Gorton’s websites
