i scream, you scream...
it's so magically delicious, i want to eat one right now. and because of that magical site known as twitter, i'm totally going to get one. or two, since it comes in a 2-pack. heh. and it's gonna be free, because i have this:
i'd clicked on "follow" for the ben & jerry's twitter account, and for the last few weeks, they'd been doing "flipped-out friday" giveaways. somehow, i managed to belly my way through and win one of the coupons for a free pack of flipped out, and a couple of weeks ago i was thrilled to open my mail and find this colorful letter and coupon.
i continued to follow the account, and when i saw a post about offering giveaways to twitter followers, i thought i'd respond and see if maybe i could finagle one for myself - only i wanted to do the giveaway here, on my little blog, rather than via my twitter. and i was pretty stoked when i got an e-mail back that said "sure, that would be great!"
i love ice cream. i can eat it any day, any time - summer, winter, blistering heat, when i'm freezing my ass off. and ben & jerry's phish food is my absolute favorite flavor - it's got so much good stuff in it. chocolate? good. marshmallow? mmm, goooood. cute little fudge fish? oh, yeah. when this flavor came out, i thought i'd died and gone to heaven. or, at least, that someone in their flavor creating department was my soulmate. there's almost always a carton of this stuff in my freezer, and i usually have to wrestle the teen for it. well, okay, not really, but she loves it as much as i do.
so, have you tried flipped out? yeah, you love it as much as i do (the peanut butter & chocolate one, so good) and you want more? or, no, but you'd love to? okay, here's what you have to do:
pimp me out to a friend. haha! well, i'm half kidding. i'm not going to blast this link on any message boards or my twitter feed - i'm going to see if you guys will do it for me. i've got 25 coupons to give out, and they'll go to the first 25 commenters, first come, first served. that should be pretty easy for y'all, because although i seem to have lots of lurkers, not a whole lot of you like to let me know you're actually reading via a comment. come out, come out wherever you are!
tell me in a comment to this post what your absolute favorite ben & jerry's flavor is (whether it's current or discontinued), or describe what your ideal flavor would consist of. don't forget to give it a clever name, too!
include your e-mail address in your comment, because i'm not the one who's going to send you the magical coupon. they go straight to my new friend who works with ben & jerry's media relations, so no worries about me stalking you - i won't see your mailing addresses.
you gotta love my creativity in whoring for readers and comments. hell, i'm pretty proud of it myself. ha!
have fun, and enjoy your free flipped out ice cream! well, some of you will, anyway. now hit the button and leave me a comment.
the kids and i headed out to the grove last week for some fresh air and some retail therapy. none of us could even remember the last time ...
