I have a super easy, super fun (and delicious, not to mention nutritious) contest for you to enter. It’s called the California Raisins “Give Kids Their Day in the Sun” recipe contest! Since they said I can enter, I’m probably going to. Why? For several reasons. First and foremost, I think raisins are great. Secondly, a playground structure would be an amazing gift for my community- several organizations in town have been working to raise money, and a structure like this would go a very long way and decrease the amount of funds needed for us to raise!! Lastly, I like to win things. I don’t very often, but I like to.
I like to check out recipe contests entries when I have the chance, anyway, because you can always find something you’ve not heard of or maybe never thought to pair together and perhaps, stumble upon something totally new! (My kids adore raisins, and will eat them in just about any form, so I love finding new recipes to incorporate them).
What are you waiting for? Grab your best raisin recipe and enter!! (Oh gosh, how cool would it be if one of my readers won…I’ll be super excited!!) Don’t wait to enter because the contest ends October 5, 2011. Get your entries in now!! GOOD LUCK!!
KIDS GROW IN THE SUN. WE THINK THEIR SNACKS SHOULD, TOO!
To celebrate the natural, solar-powered goodness of this small but mighty fruit, California’s nearly 3,000 raisin growers are hosting an easy-to-enter recipe contest called: “Give Kids Their Day in the Sun.” Through October 5, healthy snack recipes can be uploaded to California Raisin’s Facebook page for a chance to win a premium playground structure (valued up to $10,000), a year’s supply of California Raisins, plus a $1,000 donation in the winner’s name to the food bank of their choice.
Five finalists will each win a $100 gift card and will be selected based on the creative use of California Raisins (25%); healthfulness (25%); ease-of-preparation (25%); and taste (25%). Finalists will be announced October 19, 2011 and then it will be up to the California Raisin Facebook fans to determine the grand prize winner. Check out the full set of contest rules.
I will receive a gift card and promotional items to thank me for my time for this post. All opinions are my own.
