WANNA INFLUENCE THE KRAFT FOODS COMPANY? JOIN THEIR CULTIVAR COMMUNITY!
A couple of months ago I was invited to join a panel to help influence the future food products that come from Kraft Foods. Yes, the same one that makes the famous macaroni & cheese and other high-carb foods we’d never touch with a ten-foot pole! But they’re opening up themselves to suggestions from people who are big-time passionate about food and cooking. If that’s YOU, then here’s your chance to join Kraft Foods Cultivar Community. This is an advisory committee that provides feedback to the company about the coming trends they need to be paying attention to, opinions on what products they need to be providing to their customers, and having the voice of real people giving them input.
I’ve had a blast doing this so far and would love for YOU to join me in this. And they’ll even throw you some Amazon gift certificates from time to time to show their appreciation for your input. It only takes literally 5-10 minutes a week to give feedback on a variety of topics, so give it a go if this is something that interests you. Click here to take a questionnaire to determine your eligibility in this program. Let me know if you are chosen to be a part of the Cultivar Community.
WIN FREE PRIZES WHILE I’M AWAY ON VACATION NEXT WEEK!
Christine and I will be heading out of town on Saturday and then out of the country on Sunday and won’t be back until December 6th. It’ll be a true vacation with no access to e-mail, the blog, the podcast or anything. We’re just getting away for a few days for some rest and relaxation. But while we’re gone, YOU will have chance to win some really cool stuff (sorry, this giveaway is only open to residents of the United States):
Christine has one of the Cellies products and LOVES using it to carry around her iPhone. Now if they could only make a Cellies iPad girdle product…HA! Just kidding. To enter this contest to win these three prizes, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and mailing address no later than December 5, 2010. We’ll draw a name at random on December 6, 2010 to be the winner. THANKS for entering and I hope you win!
