Giveaway: Six Flags & Ice Cream!

Pin It
Ice cream is my favorite. My FAVORITE. I come from an ice cream family. We gladly choose ice cream over meals. Ice cream cakes were a common request on birthdays growing up. It doesn't matter how stuffed we are, there is always room for ice cream.
(the shirt says it all--find out how to get your own here)
You know what else our family loves? Roller coasters! We grew up about an hour away from Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, IL and spent many summer days there waiting in line for our favorite coasters. Raging Bull, Iron Wolf, Batman, we did them all! When we needed a break from the roller coasters, you could find us on the Giant Drop or the Tilt a Whirl...because nothing says fun like taking a break from whiplash and substituting it for insane dizziness!

Today, I have the chance to share two of my favorites with YOU. Next Sunday (July 15th) is National Ice Cream Day...(you better believe I'll be celebrating!)...and Mars Ice Cream has teamed up with Six Flags to celebrate the "coolest" day of the year.

One of my readers will win two tickets to a Six Flags near you, as well as some MARS Ice Cream coupons. Yup, rollercoasters and ice cream!

To enter, leave a comment telling me your FAVORITE ice cream flavor...I'm looking for some inspiration for my own ice cream making adventures! I'll announce a winner on Tuesday--giveaway closes Monday at 9 pm Central. 

Make sure you live close to one of the 11 Six Flags locations and that you can go next Sunday! If you aren't selected as a winner, you might want to still make your way to Six Flags on the 15th...they've got all sorts of fun stuff going on (like the chance to get a VIP wristband to get on the rides before the park opens!)

Chobani Giveaway Winner!

My Chobani stash is dwindling, sadly. The other day I ate regular (non-Greek) yogurt and couldn't believe the difference. I really don't think I can go back to regular yogurt, I much prefer the thicker, creamier, tarter taste of Chobani!

Thank you Shari for sending me the samples!!!!

As for the winner of the Cho-pack giveaway....I used random number generator and ASHLEY L. is the winner! Send me your address and I'll pass it along to Shari! Enjoy your Chobani :)

And the rest of you should definitely just go buy some and try it out--you won't regret it!

Happy Saturday, I'm off for a run in the 23 degree weather...yikes...

Chobani Review...and a GIVEAWAY!

Hopefully everyone is recovering from their Thanksgiving weekend of indulgence :) I had an awesome time at home filled with the family time I've been craving and (way too much) good food. Now I'm back home and trying to get my eating back on track...eating normal sized meals at normal times and whatnot! Thankfully, it's been a little bit easier to do with the pack of greek yogurt that Shari from Chobani sent me.

I LOVE yogurt and eat it daily, usually with granola or cereal and sometimes fruit mixed in. I'm not very particular when it comes to yogurt brands, but I do have a special love for greek yogurt. I tried it for the first time while in London last summer and I was amazed by how much better it is than standard yogurt. It is much thicker and creamier, and tastes better overall. Furthermore, it's much higher in protein (18 grams total) than typical yogurt, keeping you fuller for longer (and hence a good choice for breakfast, snack, or lunch!). I've been a little resistant to buy greek yogurt regularly, mostly because it's significantly more expensive than regular yogurt. But like I said, Shari was gracious enough to send me a whole pack of Chobani yogurts to try. I think I might be a greek yogurt convert...it's worth the extra cash!

As always, I've been loving them with granola mixed in, but another great thing about greek yogurt is its versatility! Greek yogurt can be used in baking and cooking, often replacing higher fat ingredients such as sour cream. Stay tuned for a recipe later this week where I incorporate the plain Chobani into our dinner!

The best part about Chobani?! They're willing to send some to YOU to try too! That's right, Shari has graciously offered to send one reader a CHO-case of their fruit flavors (peach, blueberry, & strawberry). So how can you be a lucky receiver of some Chobani Greek Yogurt?
