Eat to the Beat: A Nada Moo Giveaway & Van Halen

Monday, October 15th, 2012

 

The song: “Ice Cream Man” by Van Halen (lyrics)

The foodstuff: Chocolate Nada Moo Ice Cream

The connection: I’m like the ice cream, but better: I’m giving it away for free!

 

One of the perks of moderating pizza and ice cream blogs on tumblr is discovering all these awesome new vegan products and restaurants, including many overseas that I wouldn’t otherwise know about. (I’ve even landed on a few companies’ pr mailing lists!) Nada Moo is one of several newish vegan ice cream brands that people have been raving about – and they were nice enough to send me a packet full of free product coupons: some for me, and some for you!

Unfortunately, there aren’t too many stores in the Kansas City area that stock Nada Moo – and those that do are an hour’s drive from my house! (It’s my fault for moving to the middle of nowhere! The downside of misanthropy.) The husband drives past the general vicinity on his way to and fro work … but he only goes into the office once a week, if that. The window is small, my friends.

The point of my story? So far we’ve only been able to find “Gotta Do Chocolate” locally; we’re still on the lookout for one of the other flavors. If and when I find it, I’ll report back!

 

2012-08-17 - Chocolate NadaMoo - 0023

 

On the upside, the chocolate Nada Moo is delicious. (If I have to use the remainder of my coupons on chocolate Nada Moo, I’ll be only slightly disappointed. Two words: Java Crunch!) I’ve come to love coconut milk ice cream even more than the soy-based stuff (with the exception of Green Tea So Delicious with coconut milk – the two flavors don’t play nice together), and Nada Moo is no exception. The chocolate flavor is surprisingly subtle, but smooth; and the coconut milk is a nice complement. I downed the pint in just a few sittings. What can I say, I loves my ice creams!

Now for the giveaway portion of this post! Two lucky winners will receive a coupon for a free pint of Nada Moo ice cream, as well as coupon for $1.00 off a pint.

The coupons don’t have an expiration date – so if frozen desserts during the cold weather months isn’t your thing, you can always hold onto them until next June! (Though I posit that apple pie topped with vanilla ice cream can be enjoyed year-round.)

To enter to win, visit Nada Moo’s website and leave a comment on this post telling us which flavor of Nada Moo you’d like to try. Or just describe your most favorite Vegan MoFo 2012 moment to date. I’m not fussy. Just leave a comment to win!

For an extra entry, tweet a link to this contest and then leave a second comment with a link to said tweet. For example: “Enter to win a #free pint of @NadaMoo #vegan #icecream now thru 10/22! http://bit.ly/OZUeIT Happy #VeganMoFo!”

The fine print:

  • Due to product availability, this contest is only open to residents of the United States.
  • When commenting, please leave a valid email address so that I can contact you if you’re the winner. (Don’t worry, your email addy won’t be displayed or shared – your info is safe with me!)
  • The contest closes next Monday, October 22 at 8PM US Central time. The winner will be chosen randomly and has 72 hours to respond, after which time another winner will be chosen.
  • Good luck!

    Oh, and file under “things I learned while writing this post”: Nada Moo has some seriously ridiculous ice cream recipes on its website. S’mores Ice Cream Sandwiches. NadaMoo Neapolitan. Chocolate Ice Cream Pretzel Squares with Peanut Butter Caramel Swirl. I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START.

     

    Update: …and the winners are:

    null

    Jennifer M. and Sara P., both mint people. Check your email, winners!

    Thanks to everyone for playing!

    FYI: I’m also giving away some free Tofutti ice cream over on tumblr. A second chance to win, yay! Now through 10/29.
