The Great Greek Yogurt Haiku Contest

Ever since our trip to Greece we have been big fans of Greek-style yogurt. And we have always been huge fans of gifts. So when Stonyfield Farms sent us coupons for free yogurt we were super excited. Instead of hoarding all this goodness, we thought it would be nice to share. Unfortunately we are not that nice and we are going to make you work for it…

Announcing Cookography’s first contest: The Great Greek Yogurt Haiku Contest!

Simply write a haiku about: Yogurt, Vermont (Stonyfield is in Vermont, and we love Vermont), and/or Greece (we also love Greece!) It has to be a proper haiku (5-7-5) and left as a comment to this post by May 31, Midnight EST. We will award the best entry a bunch of coupons for free yogurt, and we will give the runner-up just a couple.

You only have one week, so hurry!! If no one enters we have no problem keeping all the coupons for ourselves!

If you are scared that if you win you might end up with more yogurt than you know what to do with…don’t worry! While Greek yogurt tastes great eaten right from the container, it is also great for cooking. Use it instead of sour cream when making dips or on top of Greek Shrimp with Feta.

CORRECTION (In Haiku Form):

While Vermont is swell,

Stonyfield’s from New Hampshire

Both treat foodies well

  1. Hey, what a great idea! I am a big fan of Greek yogurt and of haiku. In fact, I am a past president of the Haiku Society of America, former editor of the journal Modern Haiku, and currently editor of Modern Haiku Press. If you are going to have another contest, I would delighted to be a part of it.
