Green Mountain Naturals Lemonade Giveaway

Hope you’re having a wonderful week! After several rainy days here, the skies have finally cleared up, and we’re looking forward to enjoying some nice summer evenings outside again. Since the kickoff to summer over Memorial Day weekend a couple weeks ago, I’ve been taking every opportunity I can to get out and enjoy the weather. Today, I’m also excited to be giving away some Green Mountain Naturals Lemonade K-Cup packs, which I think are essential for summer! This year’s Keurig Ambassador program is coming to a close, and a few weeks back, Green Mountain Coffee contacted me to ask me what my favorite K-Cup packs are. Normally I’d go for my old standby – Donut House Chocolate Glazed Donut – but in the spirit of summer I just had to go with the Green Mountain Naturals Lemonade instead. Perfectly refreshing, especially in a to-go bottle for outdoor activities, these brew over ice K-Cup packs are the perfect blend of sweet and tart, and they also have no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. To win some of your own, just leave me a comment letting me know your favorite summer tradition, or if you don’t have one yet, tell me how you plan to spend your summer! The giveaway ends next Wednesday, June 19th at midnight, and is open to US residents only. One winner will be randomly selected using and contacted Thursday, June 20th. Good luck!

Full disclosure: I am a paid Keurig K-Cup Ambassador, however the opinions expressed here are all my own. Prizes are courtesy of Keurig and Green Mountain Coffee.

Growing up, my dad had a huge garden in our backyard and he’d be out there working, sweating (and eating tomatoes … their gorgeous juice dripping on his chin!), and now, years later I live in NYC with a tiny terrace – but big enough to grow a couple of tomato plants myself. And nothing is better than plucking the first ripe one of the season!
