Who wants to win a Sherbet Party?


This isn't your everyday sherbet, either. It's Hola Fruta, and it's so much better than the sherbets we all know and like/love/hate. Sick of the old lime, orange, and rainbow flavors? I am!

Hola Fruta comes in eight mouth watering flavors that you can see if you follow the link above. If I had to choose a favorite, it would be Pina Colada. With shredded coconut and chunks of pineapple, it's so refreshing and different! Oh, and try blending it with some crushed ice and rum for a whole other kind of party. ;)

We tried the Peach, Strawberry, Pomegranate, Pina Colada and Margarita flavors, and truly, they're all so freaking good! Everyone in the family has their favorite picked out. Plus, every serving
is low in fat and less than 150 calories.

The folks at Hola Fruta have been very generous and I have two party packs to give away to you guys! You get FIVE quarts, not pints, quarts! of their super premium sherbet, and everything you need to have a party. A bunch of plastic cups and spoons, an ice cream scoop, napkins, invitations, and for even more fun--beads and maracas! My kids love the maracas--like you knew they would, hehe.


This giveaway will run for two weeks, and on September 17th, I'll randomly choose two winners. Just leave a comment on this post, along with a valid email address!

Good luck, and don't forget to leave an email address where you can be reached!
You must also be a resident of the US, otherwise, you'd get melted sherbet and one hell of a mess. And an angry postman.

Ooo. I love sherbet. Apparently one of the traits I inherited from my dad is the intense love of putting rainbow sherbet on top of mint 'n' chip ice cream. Say it's gross all you want. It's amazing. You get the minty-ness and the fruity-ness and the dark chocolatey-ness. 'Tis wonderful. And this sherbet seems wonderful as well. I'd love to try the pomegranate. And piña colada. Now I want sherbet...

Hi
You should not serve acid food in those uranium glass sorbet dishes. Uraniun is not a nutritional suppliment. It was used as a glass colourant before anyone knew what it was.

Ice cream has always been my favorite food. and sherbert is even better now that i'm an adult and have been notified that counting calories will forever be a part of my life.

A girl in a new city could use a good party to make friends before summer is up.
