FREEBIE: YoCrunch Yogurt Coupon

On Saturday, October 31, the kids will be out gathering lots of Halloween loot—99.9% of it, if not 100%, falling outside the parameters of good nutrition. YoCrunch has a solution:

For up to two weeks following Halloween, parents can trade in any candy wrapper that their kids have earned trick or treating to YoCrunch for a coupon good for any YoCrunch product.

Of particular interest to the candy-coveting set are YoCrunch yogurts that combine healthy food (lowfat yogurt) topped with fun (the candy); specifically, Vanilla topped with Oreo, Butterfinger, Reese’s Pieces, Nestle Crunch (also available with strawberry yogurt) or M&M’s Chocolate Candies. For more nutrition, there are Strawberry topped with 100% natural lowfat granola; and Blueberry, Mixed Berry, Raspberry, Peach and Strawberry Banana topped with 100% natural lowfat granola. And for healthier trick-or-treating, there’s the special Halloween edition of YoCrunch, available through the end of October.

FREEBIE: “Drink Me” Magazine Downloadable Online

Drink Me magazine, a lifestyle publication about drinking and bar culture, celebrates alcohol (beer, wine, spirits) and the drinking establishments in which they’re enjoyed. The first issue was April 2009, followed by a second in May/June. Hopefully, July/August is just around the corner.

The first issue was a bit thin, but for free, there are nuggets worth perusing. Issue 2 provides a sampling of historic drinking locations in San Francisco, where the publication is based; and three articles that philosophize. Attractive graphics are interspersed with quotes from famous people on alcohol.

You can download the issues (or read them online) at http://drinkmemag.com.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to share your deep knowledge of cocktails, spirits and/or drinking establishments, or take photos or create related artwork, this may be your opportunity. Contact contribute@drinkmemag.com.

Love the cocktail culture? Download the first two issues of Drink Me free.

The magazine’s title comes from Chapter I of Alice in Wonderland. Alice, who “had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it…burning with curiosity…ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge. In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.” Down the rabbit hole, Alice finds that she’s too big to get through the doorway into the garden, until she spots the bottle with the label that says “DRINK ME,” which shrinks her down to ten inches tall.

For those who remember the tale, this turns out not to a simple solution, but is the beginning of a series of adventures—not all particularly pleasant, if you remember a Queen of Spades commanding her minions to lop off Alice’s head (sounds like someone is having the DTs!). Hopefully, Drink Me magazine will provide happier adventures for its readers. Whether or not it’s appropriate for an alcohol magazine to use a prepubescent girl as its logo…well, we just won’t go there.
