I was tickled pink to be a part of the Ehrmann MIXIM launch party on Valentine’s Day. The event took place on the Queen Mary ship in Long Beach that was transformed into the “Love Boat”. Guests were treated to fun tunes, pretty pink decor and plenty of MIXIM yogurt to snack on. Not only was the evening yummy but it turned out to be a historical night! Yep, how many people can say that they were part of a world record? I can!
First, let’s discuss the yogurt. I have a disclaimer: I can be extremely picky when it comes to Greek yogurt. Not all yogurts are created equal. Some brands can be really sour and I was curious to see how MIXIM faired against my favorite yogurt brand!
How did it taste? I tried three out of six MIXIM flavors. All of the flavors were creamy, light and did not have an overwhelming bitter taste. Mango + Pineapple and Coconut + Almonds was tropical, sweet and delicious. Strawberries are a popular fruit and I think the Strawberries and Granola flavor will be a hit for people who like more traditional fruits. Raspberry and Dark + White Chocolate curls was my favorite and it was delectable! I loved the sweet combination of fruit and chocolate and I noticed that there wasn’t a nasty after taste.
Second, Ehrmann MIXIM challenged guests to set a world record of, “Most couples feeding each other simultaneously”! Official Guinness World of Records Adjudicator Michael Empric, was on hand to verify our attempt. I chatted with Empric who said that he’s met some very strange people during his Guinness travels. He was excited to be a part of this event and was soaking in the wonderful SoCal weather. My date for the evening was Xenia of Raised By Culture and we were one of the couples setting out to break this record. Did we do it?! Yes! 436 people (218 couples) came together and completed this task! Because of this world record, MIXIM donated $20,000 to it’s charity partner, The Children’s Foundation.
You can continue to support The Children’s Foundation by tagging your MIXIM photos with #MIXIMLOVE. Share on Instagram, Twitter or Vine and Ehrmann MIXIM will donate $1 to The Children’s Heart Foundation up to $5,000 additional dollars!
Just a couple of MIXIM Facts:
- Packaged in a distinctive heart-shaped container, each serving of creamy, smooth plain MIXIM Greek yogurt is paired with two topping combinations to let consumers create their own taste sensations.
- MIXIM helps consumers do what they naturally do with their Greek yogurt…mix it up and enjoy it their way. Each flavor ranges from 145-210 calories per serving and delivers at least 10g of protein and it is an excellent source of calcium.
- The yogurts are free of artificial preservatives, additives, colors and sweeteners.
You’ll find MIXIM initially in California, Arizona and Nevada starting in January 2014 in popular retailers such as Albertsons, Bashas and Safeway. I’m definitely a new fan!
