$25 Skyline Gift Card Giveaway

by Katie on July 6, 2015

There are many, many reasons why I love living in Cincinnati….and Skyline Chili is definitely one of them!  Since 1949, Skyline has been serving their famous chili to Cincinnati residents and visitors alike, and it continues to be one of the signature restaurants in Cincinnati.

While Skyline is known for their famous cheese coneys and 3-ways, they also feature a Fresh Selects Menu which includes salads and wraps with fresh garden ingredients that are ideal for summertime.

This summer, Skyline is adding a new BLT Wrap and BLT Salad to their everyday Fresh Selects menu.  These new menu items are loaded with crispy bacon, fresh romaine lettuce, ripe tomatoes, and Wisconsin cheddar cheese.  Plus, both the wrap and the salad are tossed with Skyline’s own chili ranch dressing.

If BLT’s aren’t your cup of tea, there are plenty of other options available with Skyline’s Fresh Selects fare:

  • Greek Salad – This salad features romaine lettuce, tomatoes, sliced pepperoncinis, feta cheese, kalamata olives and Skyline’s original Greek dressing.
  • Buffalo Chicken Salad – Featuring Skyline’s own spicy buffalo sauce with diced chicken, this salad boasts of lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese and the dressing of your choice.
  • Buffalo Chicken Wrap - Skyline’s spicy buffalo sauce with diced chicken steals the show in this wrap, and it’s complimented by lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese and Ranch dressing in a tortilla.
  • Greek Chicken Wrap – This wrap hosts a savory combination of diced chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, sliced pepperoncinis, feta cheese, Kalamata olives and Skyline’s original recipe Greek dressing in a tortilla.
  • Classic Chicken Wrap – For all the traditionalists out there, this wrap features diced chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese and Chili Ranch dressing in a tortilla.

Throughout the month of May, KINDSnacks is partnering with the online retailer, Zulily, to host Kindness Safaris at 20 different zoos across the country.  In hosting these safaris, KIND and Zulily hope to show kids just how easy and fun it is to participate in random acts of kindness each and every day (how awesome is that?!).

The Kindness Safaris will include a scavenger hunt booklet that will feature interactive kindness activities inspired by animals.  For example, when kids see a bear, they’re encouraged to give a family member a bear hug!

Attendees will receive flowers when they leave the zoo to pass on to someone else as an act of kindness.  Participants will also receive a take-home kindness kit that comes complete with a complimentary lunch tote for kids to color on.

KIND and Zulily will be hosting a Kindness Safari at the Cincinnati Zoo on Saturday, May 16th from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.  To celebrate this event, KIND and Zulily are hosting a #kindawesome art contest on Cincinnati Cents.  All of my readers are invited to submit photos, artwork, or comments about what kindness means to you and your children, using the hashtag #kindawesome.

For example, the picture above shows the dinner my kids made for me earlier this year on an evening when I had a horrendous headache.  My oldest son ran up to the store to get the needed ingredients, and together, the four of them made blue waffles and scrambled eggs.  To me, this definitely qualifies as a random act of kindness (and a pretty awesome dinner!).

The winner of this contest will receive a mixed case of KIND Bars and 4 tickets to the Kindness Safari at the Cincinnati Zoo!  So be sure to leave a comment below with either a picture or a story about a random act of kindness to be entered to win this giveaway!

By the way….if you don’t win the contest, you can still print out a coupon from the Cincinnati Zoo’s site for $2 off adult admission and $1 off a child’s admission for the Kindness Safari event.

This giveaway ends at 9:00 a.m. EST on Friday, May 15th and is open to all U.S. residents, ages 18 years or older.  The winner will be selected randomly, and will be notified by e-mail.

The Piping Gourmets Whoopie Pies Giveaway

by Katie on April 20, 2015

As a mom, I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks for our family.  While I love seeing the kids pick fruits and veggies for their snacks, I’m also realistic enough to know that sweet and salty snacks are often their first choice instead.

That’s why I was pleased to stumble across The Piping Gourmets Whoopie Pies.  The Piping Gourmets offers a variety of allergen-free whoopie pies that are certified GFCO and Kosher-Pareve as well as vegan, dairy-free, egg-free, and are non-GMO.

So, I have to say, I was a little skeptical whether or not my kids would like this healthier take on dessert.  However, my concerns were completely unfounded.  It took them just a matter of minutes to plow through their whoopie pies….which is saying a lot especially when you’re feeding teenage and pre-teen boys!

The whoopie pies are available in 6 different delicious flavors – double chocolate, chocolate vanilla, double vanilla, chocolate mint, chocolate raspberry, and vanilla lemon.  These whoopie pies make a perfect dessert or a delicious on-the-go snack.

Locally, you can find The Piping Gourmets products at Whole Foods Market in Cincinnati or Mason.  However, if you’re not a Cincinnati native, you can find a store near you here.

The Piping Gourmets would like to offer one of my readers two packs of whoopie pies.  Want to win?  You have six ways to enter this giveaway:

  1. Leave a comment on this post – which Piping Gourmets Whoope Pie flavor would you most like to try?
  2. Follow Cincinnati Cents on Pinterest.  Leave a separate comment letting me know that you’ve done this.
  3. Follow the Cincinnati Cents Twitter page and retweet this giveaway.  Leave a separate comment letting me know that you’ve done this.
  4. Like Cincinnati Cents on Facebook.  Leave a separate comment letting me know that you’ve done so.
  5. Like the Piping Gourmets on Facebook – let them know that Cincinnati Cents sent you.  Leave a separate comment letting me know that you’ve done this.
  6. Follow the Piping Gourmets on Pinterest.  Leave a separate comment letting me know that you’ve done this.

Please make sure you leave a separate comment for each method of entry on this post.

This giveaway ends at 8:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 26th, and is open to all U.S. residents, ages 18 years or older.  The winner will be selected randomly, and will be notified by e-mail.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond.  If no response is received by that time, a new winner will be chosen.
