Disney Pixar’s COCO Free Advance Screening!

Disney•Pixar’s COCO will be in theaters everywhere on Thanksgiving, but you have a chance to see it two days early with tickets to a special free advanced screening! It’s a beautiful, colorful film filled with music and a look into Mexican culture and the tradition of the holiday of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.

I’ll make a confession and say that I don’t like coffee. Seriously! I have tried it many times over the years thinking I will eventually like it, but NOPE – it’s not going to happen. BUT, I know I’m in the minority and, especially on a chilly day like this, lots of people want to start the morning with a cup of coffee. Getting a great deal on that coffee is even better, right?

If you want a great deal on YOUR next cup of coffee, check out the list of Minnesota coffee deals here. You’ll find lots of Groupon deals for local coffee shops and cafes for coffee at a big discount, plus some deals on doughnuts and other goodies to go with the coffee!

New Kemps Locally Crafted Flavors Are Here!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its adveriser. All opinions are mine alone.

#KempsLocallyCrafted #collectivebias

Do you have a go-to dessert choice in your family? If it happens to be ice cream and you live in Minnesota, then you’re probably already a big fan of Kemps. Now there is even more reason to be a fan with brand new Kemps Locally Crafted flavors.

Do you remember a few months ago when we all had a chance to vote in the Kemps Locally Crafted Sweepstakes? Well, the results are in and four delicious flavors have been chosen from hundreds of entries! Unfortunately they didn’t pick my idea (which I thought was pretty good), but they DID choose four amazing new flavors with lots of variety to please everyone in the family.

The brand new Kemps Locally Crafted flavors are:

  • Cherry & Spoon: This flavor is a real work of art with its whimsical vanilla ice cream, drizzles of chocolaty fudge, real cherries and chunks of brownie.
  • You Betcha Berry: Are we thankful this one was created? You betcha! Indulge in a sweet Tahitian vanilla ice cream with a swirl of raspberry, real blueberries and delicious pound cake.
  • Up North Blend: Escape for a moment to a crisp day in the north woods, and enjoy a cup of java ice cream with swirls of salted caramel, shaved chocolate, and bits of brownies.
  • Muddy Mississippi: Even though it sounds mainstream this is one exceptionally decadent chocolate ice cream. Treat yourself with a dancing swirl of fudge, a sprinkle of chocolaty toffee and shaved chocolate.

Which one will you try first? I headed to Target to pick up my Kemps Locally Crafted and first up for me was Cherry & Spoon. I think it is so fitting to have this new flavor debuting not long after the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, home of the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry, was recently reopened after renovation. The little chunks of brownie in Cherry & Spoon are SO GOOD and blend perfectly with the cherry and vanilla flavors.

Now that the four new flavors have been introduced, Kemps conducted another sweepstakes survey to see which of the four flavors takes top honors. Stay tuned to their Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram for the announcement of the winner!
