PRIZE DRAWING: Because You Should Celebrate A Belated National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month

Wendy’s Berry Almond Chicken Salad

Did you know June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month?

I didn’t know until the good folks at Wendy’s told me it was when they offered The Impulsive Buy three $10 gift cards to give away to three lucky TIB readers. Now that I know it’s National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month, I regret all the McDonald’s and Burger King food I ate this month.

Oh, but the month isn’t over. I can still binge on fruits and vegetables. Farmer’s market, here I come!

Wendy’s is offering the gift cards so that the winners can celebrate a belated National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month by trying their Berry Almond Chicken Salad. I say belated because it’s almost the end of the month and the winners won’t be getting their gift cards until July. Jasper reviewed the salad last year and enjoyed it.

However, if you don’t want to celebrate National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month, you can hold on to the card until September and can celebrate National Chicken Month, if the Berry Almond Chicken Salad is still available. Or, if you can’t wait that long, you could use the gift card on July 13 to celebrate National French Fry day.

  1. ALL FOUR! BOOYAA!

    1.peaches
    2.broccoli or onions
    3.Not an essay, but I’m of German/Irish/Native American descent so I believe I’ve lived a 5,000 word essay on potatoes. They are good for you actually… a great antioxidant.
    4. “Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday.”

  2. My favorite fruit of all time is bannana’s. They literally go with everything and yummy by themselves.

  3. Favorite fruit is either durian or mangosteen; too bad both are near impossible to get fresh in the states

  4. Pineapple is the best fruit ever hands down. And I’m a sucker for all things with yellow squash. Om nom nom nom nom!

  5. Favorite Fruit: Can’t pick just one! But my favorites are apples, bananas, blueberries.

    Favorite Veggie: Carrots. I swear I was a rabbit in another life–I eat so many carrots all the time!

  6. “Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday.”

    As a (fading) redhead, I concur. However, I am right-handed so I’ll be consigned to being a lackey of some sort rather than a true leader.

    And Japanese pumpkin (kabocha) and cherries.

  7. Oh man I freaken love the berry almond chicken salad! Fav fruit are strawberries, so this is an awesome giveaway!

  8. My favorite fruit is probably a good SweetTango apple.

    Veggie? It’s all about the sweet potato.

    (My Irish roots say that a potato is neither fruit nor veggie, but a magical foodstuff.)

    (I, for one, welcome our lefty, ginger overlords.)

  9. I’m full lefty but only half ginger so I’ll forego answer #4 and go with #1. My favorite fruit would have to be a pomegranate. Somebody saw somethin’ and they said hey, it looks like a pomegranate, and I don’t know why they call it a pomegranate, but it looks like a pomegranate, right? It became, no matter what language you spoke it in, the syllables are frequencies. It’s the world of creation in vibrating strings, which is sound.

  10. Here, in San Luis Obispo County, a coastal-but-semi-agricultural area midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, two of our biggest crops are Strawberries and Broccoli, which, coincidentally, are my personal favorite fruit and vegetable, necessarily in that order.

  11. “Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday.”
    Potatoes are my favorite vegetables because they have a nice texture and a are high in many vitamins and minerals. Lemons are my favorite fruit, I will often eat a bag of lemon slices.

  12. I can’t pick just one! I love apples bananas blueberries sweet potatoes carrots clementines kiwis red peppers zucchini…

  13. Well, the potato is a vegetable because…. J/K, my favorite fruit is probably pineapple.

  14. Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday…until people with black hair who are right handed take over.

  15. Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday… and I can’t wait because I’m left-handed 🙂

  16. 1. Your favorite fruit of all time – Banana

    2. Your favorite vegetable of all time – Brocolli

    3. A 5,000-word essay about why a potato is or is not a vegetable – See Attached 😉

    4. The words, “Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday.”

  17. a potato is a vegetable starch that you find underground, easiest to grow and full vitamin C. If your in need of something easy to grow, something that will pack you with most nutrition ever. Potassium rich, vitamin c, b vitamins, and full other vitamins. If you love to enjoy a simple baked potato or oven fried french fries you’d get good nutrition in and add some good for you butter or olive oil while baking or as topping you’ll obtain the nutrition from the fat and also feel full with the goodness of a delicious potato. Many people could say a potato and meat dish is just perfect. Have your delicious Steak with a baked potato is a classic but good for you too. Keeps you full of happiness when you enjoy a potato, energy and give you the feeling of full longer too. If your looking ever for a healthy way to eat and that will keep you full on lower calories enjoy a baked potato it will help boost your body with nutrition, and keep you healthy for a long time.
    So many types and flavors. Try them all and enjoy them in many ways. Just don’t go out and order fries at fast food place, when you can reinvent them in a healthier at home way.
    :):)

  18. Brussel sprouts are my favorite vegetable. I’m undecided between kiwi and mango for my favorite fruit.

  19. I would have to say corn on the cob is my favorite vegetable…fruit wise its an apple
    thansk

  20. MMMM, grapefruit is my favorite fruit because it is not only healthy, it sounds REALLY cool in French:”pamplemousse” – so pretentious! Bon Appetit!

  21. I don’t think I’ve ever met a fruit or vegetable I didn’t like… except for one. I can’t stand sweet corn.

  22. I love nearly all vegetables, although brussel sprouts and I have a long and rocky history together stemming from some unfortunate childhood memories around the dinner table. If I had to choose, I would say my absolute favorite vegetable is a green bell pepper. I could eat them raw anytime. As for fruit, I’m a big fan of berries, with strawberries taking a very slight lead over the others.

  23. Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday. My ginger pride almost made me leave out the lefties, but maybe we’ll create the extreme race of ginger lefties and the world will be doomed forever.

  24. Mangoes are might tasty! And good luck to us if left-handers take over the world. That would be a early Apocalyse!

  25. Favorite vegetable? Potatoes when in French Fry form 😛

    I enjoy carrots, broccoli, corn, squash and turnip when done right. Corn (on the cob) is probably my favorite though.

  26. Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday. I’m actually a leftie and I love redheads!

  27. Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday. But it’ll mostly be left handed people.

  28. The potato is obviously the best vegetable of all time! So versatile! And Wendy’s makes a good baked potato!

  29. I’ve done enough writing today, so, skipping the essay, I will say that potatoes are my favorite vegetable. That’s because they are good tasting, versatile and filling. While I enjoy a plain boiled potato (skin and all) as a snack, I also use them in a wide variety of dishes: eggs, gratins, stir-fries, curries. I even occasionally indulge in the standard favorites like french fries and homemade mashed potatoes.

    I’m more of a veggie person than a fruit person. But I was raised on wild-picked berries and I’ve never outgrown my love of them; ripe raspberries are the ultimate treat.

    Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday? Thought they already did, but maybe that’s just the perspective from my home.

  30. Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday.

    I happen to be both!

    P.S. If someone writes that 5,000 word essay, they will really rule the world.

  31. 1. John Travolta.

    2. That guy from Life Goes On.

    3. Pass.

    4. Redheads and left-handed people will rule the world someday.

    Do I get 3 chances to win now?
