Cake and Pie

February 10, 2012

in breakfast, giveaway

Remember when I said there was gonna be some big film news?

If you couldn’t watch the video, basically I announced that I’m going to have FOUR PROJECTS at this year’s San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival: Nice Girls Crew, Yes We’re Open, Daylight Savings, and Saving Face. It’s going to be a busy March – if you’re in the Bay Area, I hope to see you at the screenings!

Onto the food….new Chobani flavors arrived at my doorstep:

I was so jazzed about this shipment I sliced right through the Apple Cinnamons. Oops.

IMG_8768

Guess that means those will have to be eaten first? (You will have your time, Blood Orange and Passion Fruit.)

IMG_8764

Fruit on the bottom….

IMG_8788

…tastes like Apple Pie (I crumbled in some chocolate cake too)

IMG_8801

Plum on the side – too much going on in that container already!

Wanna win your case of the new Chobani? Just leave a comment saying which flavor you’re most pumped to try. Extra entries for announcing the giveaway, subscribing to the blog, or following me on Twitter or Facebook. (US residents only – sorry.)

3 Kelsey February 10, 2012 at 3:40 pm

Definitely apple cinnamon!

4 April February 10, 2012 at 3:40 pm

apple cinnamon is the bomb! i love to add some crumbly topping, too!

5 Julie (A Case of the Runs) February 10, 2012 at 3:41 pm

The apple cinnamon looks like a good substitute for pie. =)

6 Jacky February 10, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Wow, four films! Very awesome. Those flavor of Chobani look pretty awesome too, especially the blood orange.

7 Robyn @ Blueberries and Oats February 10, 2012 at 3:42 pm

I just tried the Blood Orange one today and it was fabulous! It was the one I was most excited about. ^^

8 diane beebe February 10, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Totally pumped about the apple cinnamon…..yummmmmmmmmmmmmm

9 Eric February 10, 2012 at 3:44 pm

I’m really excited to try the apple cinnamon flavor. As a college student, finding healthy, yummy food that doesn’t break my wallet and fills me up is hard to do. Thankfully, my local grocery store carries Chobani products, which is the perfect snack! I usually eat it for breakfast with a granola bar of some type and it keeps me full and satisfied until I can find time to eat lunch (which is sometimes 2 or 3 in the afternoon!) Thanks for posting!

10 Puja Vyas (nerdbread) February 10, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Blood Orange! What a unique flavor!

11 Joyce Santiago February 10, 2012 at 3:45 pm

The pomegranate one looks yummy! Excited to see your projects at the film festival! I’m geeking out already :P

12 Carms February 10, 2012 at 3:46 pm

The blood orange looks fantastic! Would love to try that one. :)

13 HRCK the Herald February 10, 2012 at 3:47 pm

I want to win so much! I love the blood orange and would love for my supply to be refreshed!

14 she February 10, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Apple Cinnamon!

15 Chloe February 10, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Mmm, passion fruit!! Although, you also can’t go wrong with apples. Blood orange would be nice, too…Grr, can’t choose. All three please :D

16 Lauren February 10, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I love anything passionfruit and would love to win! Thanks!

17 emily February 10, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Lynn, I accidentally puncture yogurt containers all the time!
A piece of scotch tape across the top will make it good as new.

Congrats on all your films. I hope you feel great!

18 Lynn at The Actors Diet February 10, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Thanks Emily! By the way you’re brilliant too!!!

26 Belle February 10, 2012 at 4:14 pm

I know this will sound boring, but I’d love to try the plain! I’ve always bought FAGE O%, and would like to try Chobani. I’ve heard its better, but it is usually more expensive. This would be my chance!

27 janis530 February 10, 2012 at 4:14 pm

anything blood orange- y sounds delicious to me. Though I like the little popping bites of pomegranate, it’s way too difficult for this gemini to make a decision, I’m two people for gosh sakes!

28 Simply Life February 10, 2012 at 4:15 pm

apple cinnamon please! YUM!

29 hippierunner February 10, 2012 at 4:29 pm

Does it still count if I comment saying how much I LOVE the apple and passionfruit ones?!? Ralphs and Target were selling these babies for $1 each, so I snagged a few. Fruit on the bottom reminds me of those Dannon or Yoplait ones from the 90s that they used to advertise…
