Things I Love Thursday - giveaway!!

I've read several bloggers who have mentioned that they are a BZZ Agent, and I thought it sounded cool. Basically, you get free products and are encouraged to share your honest opinion about them with others.

Diet Mountain Dew is my first campaign. I was looking forward to getting my samples - I'm a Mountain Dew fan, but skeptical of diet drinks with artificial sweeteners.

Monday night I tried Diet Dew for myself - big mistake. I don't consume a lot of carbinated beverages and my system wasn't ready for that much caffeine that late at night.

It was completely my fault, because the packaging talked about Diet Mtn Dew giving you that burst of energy without the sugar, I guess I just underestimated it.

I was still up and 10 that evening, my typical bedtime. It gave me more time to read, but I was tired the next day.

As far as flavor goes, it was great! Next time I should see if they make caffeine free diet dew (although my pastor says that just complete defeats the purpose! :P ) because I love the flavor of the drink.

Now for the giveaway - I'm giving one lucky reader a coupon for a free 12 pack! Just leave me a comment and you're entered!

Also, Bzz Agent likes feed back from people who've been "Bzzed". Just log on to chatthreads.com and enter conversation ID 101-683-466080. From there you can enter to win a $100 Amazon gift card. Not sure how good your chances are to win, but if you have a few minutes it couldn't hurt to try.

For more great products, head on over to the Diaper Diaries.

Edited to add the giveaway will close Monday at 5PM Eastern Time - Good luck!

    My mother-in-law is ADDICTED to mountain dew. She drinks like two a day - no kidding :p

  5. I'm always up for a giveaway. Count me in!!

  6. Yea! I love contests and Mountain Dew too!

  7. I've never been a big Mountain Dew fan, but I wonder if the caffeine would affect me at all? I know coffee has no affect on me anymore.

  8. Ok, that Bzz thing seems pretty cool, I just signed up.. guess that word of mouth advertising works! lol

  9. I have been a bzz agent for a few years now and it is a great way to sample new products. I am not a big dew fan, but I would pass on the coupon to my friend who is an absolute addict.

  10. I am not entering the contest (can't have the sweetener in it)... but I did want to say hi and thanks for the comment on my blog today!!!
