A giveaway…or rather a twitaway!!!

26 10 2010

Yesterday in between going from one job to another, packing my food for today’s busy schedule and trying to remember to put clean underwear in my gym bag I took a few moments to enjoy one of my favorite go to foods: Chobani Greek Yogurt. I’m lucky enough to have a Costco that sells these delicious little 6oz cups of goodness in bulk so I always have them on hand when I’m looking for something good to put in my mouth (get out of the gutter you sleezeballs).

In the midst of enjoying said goodness I made a haiku and posted it on twitter.

It went a little something like this:

Take one banana

Add Chobani peach yogurt

Party in my mouth

Not but a few minutes later I get this response: Chobani: @tidbits_of_tara We think you should host our next Twitter giveaway… what do you think?O_o Did the makers of the greatest tasting Greek Yogurt just ask me to do a twitter giveaway or what I’ve termed a twitaway? OH HELL YES THEY DID!!!!!

People, listen up! Me, little old Tara. Ghetto girl from Tacoma WA (Holla!) is giving away up to 7 cases of your favorite Chobani Flavor! 7 freaking cases! That’s 7 winners! Man oh man I’m not gonna lie to you here; I’m thinking about creating 7 new twitter identities just so I can horde it all and bathe in the goodness of Chobani. However I won’t do that cause if you know me (and you do know me right?) I’m all about sharing the love.

The best thing is you’re not going to believe how freaking easy this is. They gave me full reign on this twitaway and told me to come up with the  whole thing. The rules? Starting Thursday (whenever that starts for you), you put on your awesome creativity cap and  come up with your own haiku (not sure what a haiku is? No worry I’ve got your back. Go HERE for definition) tweet it (make sure you @tidbits_of_tara) so I see it. Include your favorite flavor in the haiku (mine is blueberry but I was having peach at the moment) and then sit back and wait to see if your haiku is randomly chosen from all the others.

I’ll be putting all the haiku’s in the proverbial hat and come Friday evening I will randomly choose up to 7 people.

YES IT IS THAT EASY!!!

The most awesome thing is Chobani has always done their own giveaways but this is the first time they’ve asked someone else to host and I want this to be absolutely awesome! Put on your creativity caps and get yourself some Chobani!!! I am tickled pink (or should I say blueberry) to do this for such a great product. I’d name my baby Chobani but then I’m sure I’d have pay them royalties…

Let me leave you with another Haiku

Chobani Yogurt

If we ate it together

World Peace would happen

See you Thursday!
