Remember when I got to interview Jeff Mauro, the Sandwich King, from Food Network? Well, I just found out I’ll be hosting a Twitter party to celebrate the Seattle’s Best Coffee’s Red Cup Showdown that Jeff’s partnered with for the summer! If you haven’t yet heard of the Red Cup Showdown, Seattle’s Best Coffee is looking for an imaginative coffee drink to serve in their cafes- and they are looking for that recipe from one of us- people like you, and me. The Twitter party is going to be lots of fun conversation and questions about wild and wacky fair foods AND wild and wacky coffee recipes — the Red Cup Showdown will even be AT several State Fairs throughout the summer! I’m so excited. Fair foods and caffeine. What more can a chunky mom ask for? In all seriousness, though, fair foods and coffee. Talking about two delicious things…fair food and coffee…in one party….Seattle’s Best Coffee is making me one happy mama. Set your pot to auto brew on July 17th and come join some coffee talk (and let’s dish on fair foods!) with me!
On July 17th, 2012 from 1-2 pm EST, you can join me (@brettbmartin), @seattlesbest (the sponsor), and @craftymamaof4 (my cohost) as we chat all about wild and wacky fair foods AND coffee recipes using hashtag #redcupshowdown. There WILL be prizes and there will be 5 of them for those who have RSVP’d (please see the bottom of this post) and those who are using the #redcupshowdown hashtag.
Seattle’s Best and Jeff Mauro are looking for the best, most imaginative new coffee drink in America- they’re looking for YOUR recipes!! To enter, head to the Red Cup Showdown link above (or visit a state fair LIVE in Ohio, California, Illinois, Wisconsin or Iowa) and submit your recipe that starts with the fabulous Seattle’s Best Coffee and from there…the sky’s the limit. The “Blue ribbon” winner (grand prize) a $10,000 prize, and their drink featured in their cafes. Get your creative juices flowing, friends! I just peeked and there are not a ton of entries on the Facebook page, so your odds of being chosen are pretty decent. I KNOW there are awesomely awesome recipe creators in our midst. You have guided me through recipes and meal suggestions- have some fun with coffee and show that talent off!!
Blue Ribbon winners from each State Fair and Facebook each get $500 cash dollars and FREE coffee for a year PLUS a trip to NYC in late August 2012 for the Grand Prize determination! Did you enter yet?
SO. To recap. #RedCupShowdown Twitter Party Tuesday July 17 1-2 pm EST. Be there. With or without fair foods and/or coffee, your choice. FIVE prizes. (To simplify for you: go to THIS TweetGrid!! http://bit.ly/LlNm5J) Don’t forget to RSVP in the linky below!!
