Here Is How To Win An Avocado Grove in Mexico For Free

Do you put avocado on everything like I do? Have you ever thought about owning an avocado grove? I know you’ve at least said yes to one of these questions. If you’ve said yes to both, then tomorrow being National Avocado Day must be marked on your calendar.

In celebration of this amazing fruit, Chosen Foods, the world’s largest supplier of avocado oil, is giving one lucky fan the chance to win their very own avocado grove in Jalisco, Mexico or $5,000 in cash.

This is an avo-maniac’s dream come true. Avocados are native to Mexico, originating more than 10,000 years ago. The ideal conditions of Mexico make for the amazing avocados we enjoy here in the states. If you’re an avocado enthusiast and/or wanna try your luck at scoring $5000, visit The winner will be announced tomorrow on Chosen Foods’ social media channels, and on its website.

Quick thing to note, as I’ve read the fine print of the contest: basically, if you choose the land as the prize, they have 120 days to get it to you, but they choose the land — and you have to pay for all expenses, which includes all taxes, maintenance, regulations and licenses, etc. They literally just provide the land. Which is dope if that’s all  you need. They don’t say you have to plant avocados on the land either so that’s also good depending on the land that’s chosen.

Cheesy Garlic Bread Wins Lay’s ‘Do Us a Flavor’ Contest, Winner Receives $1 Million

lay's chips

The masses have spoken and declared “Cheesy Garlic Bread” the winner of Lay’s  “Do Us a Flavor” contest. The flavor beat out contenders, “Sriracha” and “Chicken & Waffles,” to win over fan taste buds. At least, apparently. I’m still a bit flabbergasted as to how ho-hum garlic bread could outdo the sweet fried taste of Chicken & Waffles. Or maybe I’m just a little heartbroken over the fact that I didn’t stock up on them before the contest ended. Shucks.

Regardless, the winning Cheesy Garlic Bread chips will be available nationwide for the remainder of 2013. The woman who initially came up with the flavor, Karen Weber-Mendham, will receive her choice of $1 million in prize money or 1 percent of the Cheesy Garlic Bread’s 2013 net sales (whichever is higher).

This Year, ANY Halloween Costume Gets You A $2 Chipotle Boorito

Don’t get me wrong, I would wrap myself in tin foil if it meant a $2.00 Chipotle Boorito, but there’s no need to go to extreme measures this year. Abandoning the past approaches of “Dress up like a Burrito” and “Dress up like Farm Equipment,” this year anyone in a Halloween costume who visits a Chipotle between 4pm and closing time on October 31st  receives a $2.00 burrito, bowl, salad, or order of tacos. Up to $1,000,000 of the proceeds will go to The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, their non-profit organization dedicated to sustainability and providing awareness about food-related issues.

But if that wasn’t enough, you can also take a picture of yourself in costume inside (or in front of) a Chipotle and post it to their Facebook contest site to compete for a grand prize of $2,500. 5 runner-ups will receive prizes of $1,000 and 20 other winners will get a voucher for a burrito party of ten at a Chipotle of their choice.

Hold the Snickers, I know where I’ll be trick-or-treating.

Eat Fresh, Win Big with Subway’s New BATTLESHIP Promotion

You know what’s cooler than eating fresh? How about eating fresh with $100,000 in your pockets?

In conjunction with today’s release of Battleship: The Movie, enter for a chance to win up to $100,000 in Subway’s BATTLESHIP Instant Win Game and Sweepstakes through June 14 at your nearest participating Subway restaurant. The contest allows players to enter 3 codes daily, and can each be used for one game play.

The game offers 5 levels of prizes, which start off with a $10 prize or Free Coke Zero and go all the way up to the $100,000 grand prize. First level prizes are unlocked after using your first code. After that, each code you use advances you to the next level.

Codes can be found on specially marked 30 oz. cups or on a sticker code when you add any drink with a footlong Subway sandwich. If you’re ballin’ on a budget, or just don’t feel like spending any money to play, the rules page has details on how to obtain them for free.

For a more comprehensive look at the rules and how to play, feel free to check them right here. Oh, you’ve got a Subway sandwich in your hand AND a 30 oz. drink? Go ahead and click here to get started!

Best of luck to those who play, and if no one wins the level 5 prize of $100,000, I guess Subway sunk all of our Battleships. (Sorry, I had to include ONE reference to the game!)

Taco Bell’s Unlock the Box Promotion Will Give Away 5,000 Playstation® Vitas

Starting tomorrow, January 26, 2012, Taco Bell’s newest promotion will enter you in a contest to win brand new Playstation Vita (Sony’s newest handheld entertainment system), before they even hit the shelves! Every fifteen minutes, one lucky person will become a proud new owner of the PS Vita.

Luckily, Taco Bell is giving you three different ways to win a brand new Vita. Here’s how you can [possibly] land your hands on one:

  1. Unlock The Box: Enter the code found on specially marked $5 Buck Boxes at your local Taco Bell.
  2. Battle: Download “Reality Fighters Dojo A.R.” Taco Bell’s new mobile app & game, and battle for your chance to win.
  3. Boast: Submit a video or photo “boasting” about what you’d do for a Playstation Vita. The winner of the boast will be decided on the most votes, so I guess it’s safe to say that you should at least keep it PG-13.

The promotion’s final day is March 11, so if you’re a gamer like the millions of people in the US, then I highly suggest you hit up your nearest Taco Bell tomorrow. Check out the official website here for more information and the official rules.


Ashton Kutcher Leads Search for popchips Vice President Position

Ashton Kutcher has held the President of Pop Culture position within the popchips brand since June of 2010. Kutcher’s main oversights within the company included their social media initiatives and content creation for the “healthier, all-natural” chip snack.

One of the latest initiatives to emerge from the chip brand is a public search for a VP of Pop Culture, a no. 2 position (assistant) to Ashton Kutcher. The job/Internet-publicity-stunt offers up a $50,000 salary, paid travel, flexible hours and a years worth of popchips. Sounds more like a sweepstakes than an actual job, but hell, they have the media talking about it [here we are]. To apply for the job, you can head over to their Monster or Facebook pages. Good luck!
