Are you ready for some fun and a little friendly competition…while helping your community? In an ongoing celebration of the spirit Earth Day 2014, Cabot and our friends at ShopRite are coming together for the “Pedal for Good ShopRite Store Challenge.” This spirited event begins on April 26 at the Greater Morristown Area ShopRite.
At each store – the participating ShopRites and the dates they’ll participate are listed below – we’ll invite customers to ride theCabot human–powered bike blender that will create delicious Cabot Greek-style Vanilla Bean Yogurt Smoothies. Check out this video of a very young, very cute biker as she works her pedal power to blend away!
Here’s where the challenge comes in. Starting with the Cedar Knolls store, the bike will travel to seven area ShopRite supermarkets where customers will be challenged to rack up as many miles as they can on the blender bike. Cabot will donate 200 pounds of Cheddar Cheese to the winning store’s food pantry of choice and the other six stores will win 50 pounds of Cabot Cheddar for the food pantries of their choice.
We can’t think of a better, more festive way to help provide local food pantries with much-needed dairy products, while introducing ShopRite shoppers to the delicious and nutritious taste of Cabot Greek Style Yogurt.
There will be lots of festive, family-centered things to do on April 26. Don’t miss the environmentally friendly fun, with activities like: an Earth Day scavenger hunt, reusable shopping bag exchange, children’s green bean seed planting class, cooking demonstrations, earth-friendly vendors, organic wine sampling for the adults, and juice bar samples for all.

Want to make your own delicious smoothies at home? A rich, creamy, protein-packed smoothie is a great way to start your day. It’s also a great after-school snack. One of our favorites is this Blueberry Recovery Smoothie.
