Unless you live in Eugene, you probably missed the tasting parties we threw back in the early days when we were just getting Coconut Bliss off the ground. Fifty or more people would crowd into our tiny living room to taste our newest offerings of flavors and would wax poetic as they discussed their subtleties, debate their virtues, and proclaimed their favorites. One of our favorite things about being involved with Coconut Bliss has been watching people's faces as they take their first taste.
We also love giving away Coconut Bliss, so we are inviting you to join us in creating this special event that is all about sharing bliss with the people we love.
Here's the plan: 50 simultaneous parties in all 50 states. We'll provide the Coconut Bliss and you host the party. Together we will create a critical mass of ecstasy that will ripple across the country, awakening joy and delight from Petaluma to Poughkeepsie.
Do you want to play? If so, here's what you do:
- Create something that expresses how you feel about Coconut Bliss.
- Send it to us as soon as possible, the earlier the better (the deadline is October 1st, 2009)
- HERE's THE LINK: www.anightofbliss.com
It could be a :
- brief essay (under 250 words)
- visual image
- recipe featuring Coconut Bliss with directions and a link to a photo
- Flickr photo/photo series/collage
- YouTube Video
- audio collage
50 winners will be chosen from amongst the entries (one representing each state). Each winner will receive a "Night of Bliss" kit that will include all the essentials that you need to make your party a rapturously creamy success.
Also, if we really like your submission, we may feature it on our 'sites' (blog/facebook/Twitter/flickr, etc. etc.) with links back to your site/blog/Twitter feed, etc. (if you happen to have such things).
So scoop yourself a big bowl of Coconut Bliss for inspiration and energy and let your creative juices flow! When you're done, wipe up any messy drips and go here to send your creation to us:
Tell your friends about this, so they can play too! Again, the official deadline is October 1st!
