We all know it's the season of love. But did you know it's the time of year to express your love for the avocado?! Actually I'm teasing you, avocado love exists all year. Growing up in North Dakota avocados were not exactly abundant. Up until my mid-20's I was sure I didn't like the green, seemingly slimy, fruit. Then something happened. I'm not entirely sure what perpetuated the change- maturity, motherhood, or an immense need for nutrients, but guacamole tasted like the best thing on Earth. Those green little oval shaped fruits are the key ingriedent for a guacamole taste sensation.
Needless to say, I'm now a devotee.
If you are a fan just like yours truly I have three main ways to express your love this month. Check out the details below.
1. During the month of February, share your passion for avocados with your family and friends via the Share the Avocado Love Facebook app
Our Nana has a deep passion for avocados, so I made sure send her a special message:)
2. Avocados from Mexico has their very own CafePress store where you can purchase Avocado's branded shirts or gear that showcase your love for the delicious, green fruit! Check out the Avocados from Mexico Cafe Press store.
Notice I have this handy, dandy canvas bag! It's perfect for grocery store shopping!
3. On February 7th between 3:00 and 4:00pm EST there will be an #iloveavocados Twitter party with @guacgrl! Check it out for a good time and for great prizes such as gift cards and Café Press gift cards to buy I Love Avocados Gear – over $500 in prizes! Just follow @guacgrl or hashtag #iloveavocados to be a part of the fun!
Share some Valentine love this season with your sweetheart, but don't forget the avocado too:)
