Free Things Thursday: Trop50 (+ a $50 giveaway)

by Rachel on January 26, 2012

I’ve got goodies!

First, the winner of last week’s Chucklefish giveaway is entry #46 — Grace, who said she’d get an earwarmer. Grace, I will e-mail you later today to put you in touch with Lea.

For anyone else who is interested in buying something from Lea’s shop, you can use the code RWREADERS for free priority shipping on your items!

Today’s free thing is Trop50 and it might actually be the first drink that I’ve reviewed here that I didn’t also mix with alcohol. Typically, I only drink my calories if I’m, well, drinking, but I actually really like Trop50 on its own. Trop50 is a lower-calorie, lower-sugar juice that doesn’t have any artificial sweeteners (though it does have PureVia, which is a form of stevia). There are several varieties (orange, pomegranate blueberry, pineapple mango, apple, and lemonade) but I like the raspberry lemonade best. It’s sweet, tangy, pulpless (very important to me!), and I like it with savory breakfasts.

Trop50 has been running a new app on their Facebook page all month that I like, asking people “What’s the juicy truth behind your New Year’s resolution?” The idea is that people’s resolutions are often about something bigger — like “I want to lose weight” might really mean “I want to make my ex look twice.” It’s just a funny little app to play with and if you try it, you’ll get a coupon for $1 off of a bottle of Trop50 and you can enter to win $1,000.

I don’t have $1,000 to give away here, but I do have coupons for free bottles of Trop50 for five interested parties and I have a $50 Visa gift card for another winner!

To enter to win, just give the resolution translator a try on their FB page and leave a comment here letting me know you did. And feel free to share your resolution translation along with your comment (either the one they gave you, or write a funny one with your own). You have until next Tuesday, Jan. 31* at 11:59 PM CST to enter and I’ll choose the six winners at random next Thursday!
