Going Bananas!

I was going to just enjoy Blog Boycott Day today, but then this came into my inbox and I knew I had to share it with you!

I’m a Chiquita Mom, yes, as in the banana, and Chiquita recently contacted me with an exciting new opportunity – to get an exclusive sneak peek at Chiquita’s “Make Your Way To Rio” sweepstakes!

Chiquita is partnering with 20th Century Fox and the movie Rio, the next big 3-D animated event from the creators of Ice Age™. The “Make Your Way To Rio” online adventure is filled with fun interactive games (try the Swap ‘Em game!), coloring pages for the kids, videos, easy Chiquita recipes and sweepstakes prizes that you and your family will enjoy.

I loved the site, and so does Tater, and I immediately knew I had to share it with you!

Oh yeah, and did I mention you’ll also have a chance to win a trip to Rio de Janeiro for you and your family? All you have to do is sign up and play! And believe me, when the kids see this site, they’ll want to play!

By interacting with the website, www.Chiquita.com/Rio, unlocking badges and sharing your successes with friends and family, you will get one step closer to winning the trip to Rio de Janeiro!

Now here’s the cool part: I was given the opportunity to check out the website before it goes live, and I’m sharing it with you now! The sweepstakes will not be promoted publicly until Monday (March 14th) but we are getting a sneak peek. So check out www.Chiquita.com/Rio.

Also…next week is my 1 year blogoversary! I’m so excited I can hardly stand it! And as a way to say thank you for all of your continued reading, friendship, and support, I’ve got an entire week of giveaways lined up for you – ones you definitely won’t want to miss! So check back on Monday for the first giveaway!

And so it goes…

I received free products from Chiquita for mentioning the Make Your Way to Rio website and sweepstakes. All opinions expressed are my own and were not influenced by any other source. I was not compensated to provide an opinion of the product or of Chiquita.
