We are finally getting around to writing about our Office Hero contest! If you do not remember our contest it went a little something like this. Lots of Denver’s worker bees posted on our Facebook wall or Twitter feed why their office deserved a bunch of free popsicles to cool themselves off during this scorcher of a summer. We ended up choosing three winners! In the heat of August, Mr. Jonny Stixx himself, visited our winners at their offices to deliver the ice pops.
First stop was the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado. These guys and gals do some great work for the youth of Colorado and deserved a popsicle break for sure. Andrew, our winner, was off being a real hero for the kids so we dropped the pops off to be shared later.
Next stop was at the Auraria Campus in downtown Denver. Emily surprised her coworkers with our delicious popsicles including our Truffled Popcorn. We shared some laughs and enjoyed some frozen treats. This office of hard working ladies deserved a cool snack on this hot day. Keep up the good work!
The last stop was at The Matchbox Bar. Jonny Stixx showed up for happy hour (no surprise there) and was able to share over 40 of his gourmet popsicles with the bar staff and the patrons! We had a great time drinking beer and eating ice pops. This is a great bar with lots of fun people. We were happy to hang around enjoying the evening.
The Office Hero Contest was a great success. Be sure to stay tuned on our Facebook page and Twitter feed for more fun contests and promotions from Aiko Pops!
We had a great time this weekend at the Zombie 5k Race just outside of Denver in Lakewood, Colorado. There were thousands of runners and zombies participating in the event and we here at aiko pops felt privileged to be a part of it. It was a very hot day so our popsicles were very popular (almost as popular as the beer tent but not quite. No real surprise there.) The big hit was the Zomberry popsicle as seen in the accompanying photo.
The creativity at the event was awesome! Participants wore clever outfits some that you expect in a zombie apocalypse and others that you would not. One of our favorites was a person wearing a shirt that said “Eat that guy” and then another person that had a shirt on that said “That guy.” The Zombies were also very creative in their flesh eating techniques, which made things very entertaining for us spectators.
It was a very fun day and we were happy our ice pops could be a part of it. Check out some of the pictures on the Denver Westword website by following this link to the slideshow. We are in slide #99. http://www.westword.com/slideshow/run-for-your-lives-zombie-5k-37307694/
