Sending International Delight #IcedCoffee Goodness to a Friend... What could be better #CBias

You may remember a few weeks ago that I shared how much Robyn and I liked the International Delight Iced Coffee flavors that we were sent to try through Collective Bias (You can read about it all here).  Well, just this week, I was able to send that one of my fellow Collective Bias shoppers a little New Year treat.

I have a ton of blog friends who are Collective Bias members, but when I was asked to pick one who would get this fun package delivered by UPS, my first thought was my friend Ellen who blogs at Confesssions of an Overworked Mom

I honestly can't remember how I 'met' Ellen, probably through one of the many blog hops I regularly participated in when I first started growing my blog, but I remember that she was one of the first people to be kind enough to share contacts and suggestions with a pretty wet behind the ears blogger when I asked for help  and although I can't repay the kindness, I could send her some yummy coffee to try - and the best part is she doesn't even have to review it... just enjoy!  

Ellen began blogging in 2008 in an effort to share her family's attempts at living a more eco-friendly life in rural Vermont.  Her journey has included learning about solar cooking, gardening, raising ducks and chickens, wild crafting and a variety of other topics.  Her blog is definitely a reflection of her knowledge and is a great example of how to grow a great blog!  

I know from regularly reading her blog that Ellen is a busy, on the go mom who will appreciate the ease that comes from the new International Delight Iced Coffee - just shake and pour over ice and you have a marvelously refreshing drink.  I also know from reading her blog that she's a coffee drinker - she loves to try new types of coffee and she often reviews coffee on her blog, so I knew that this would be a surprise that she'd appreciate!  I also know that she has teen-aged kids and Robyn went for the iced coffee in a big way, so Ellen may be able to share her largess with her kids... or not...

I often participate in Secret Santa events and gift exchanges with fellow bloggers and other online friends, but I rarely get the opportunity to send an online friend a gift out of the blue, so when Collective Bias chose me for this shop, I was so excited!  I love being able to do little things for friends - whether it's to take a plate of homemade cookies to a neighbor or help out a friend by loaning them something they need, it feels really good to be able to share this way.

I really appreciate that this shoppertunity let me share across the miles and send Ellen and her family a little care package of yummy International Delight Iced Coffee goodness... now I'm waiting to hear whether she's found a favorite among them...

Now if I can just hold on for a few more days - International Delight Iced Coffee will be making it's debut at Walmart on January 15th and I plan to be in line to buy more so that I can have a Moms Club Play date and share my new find with more friends!  You will also be able to find it at Sam's Club!
