Summer of 2021 Will Be An “Unbeetable” Season for Food & Fun
June 21, 2021 – Chicago, IL – While last year was all about “can’t,” this summer is going to be all about “can” – as in CAN-DO, as READ Salads and Aunt Nellie’s invite consumers to dive into their summer “CAN-DO” lists with gusto!
Starting today, the first official day of summer, READ Salads and Aunt Nellie’s, two iconic American pantry staples, are launching their “CAN-DO Summer of ‘21” campaign encouraging everyone to live summer to the fullest! Each week, consumers will be asked to share their summer CAN-DO lists at https://auntnellies.com/can-do-summer/, and one entry will be chosen randomly to win a case each of READ and Aunt Nellie’s products plus a $50 Amazon gift card! Winners will be recognized on the website and in social media, with their activity paired with two delicious summer recipes.
“We are excited to help make this summer the best ever,” said Julia Storie, READ and Aunt Nellie’s marketing administrator. “There are so many great summer activities that are made even better with delicious food, from picnics in the park to beach and pool days to outdoor concerts, camping trips and more.
