Winner of the IFYA Froyo Poetry Contest Announced
This was the first froyo poetry contest sponsored by the IFYA. The winning poem was submitted on Instagram by @db_pottery. The prize included a $25 Menchie's gift card and other froyo items.
The winning poem was submitted on Instagram. Contestants had three weeks to submit an original poem about frozen yogurt.
Susan Linton, President of the IFYA said, "We created this contest in honor of the IFYA's third anniversary. Our goal was to find a poem that demonstrated a love for frozen yogurt and that's definitely what comes through in @db_pottery's poem. We love the enthusiasm and joy expressed in the winning poem."
Congratulations to our winner, @db_pottery.
Here's the winning poem:
'Twas the night before the new promo
and I could hardly wait
to rush out to Yogurtland
and anxiously find out my fate.
New flavors and special toppings
all waiting just for me;
which one would be my favorite?
The time was getting close to see.
My heart danced with glee
as I skipped into the store;
this is what I live for after all,
special promos...give me more!
With eyes wide and sample cup in hand
I certainly wasted no time;
after all there was something tasty
and it was soon to be mine.
Once the sampling was complete,
my mind was made up;
I knew exactly which temptations
I wanted to have in my cup.
Some cookie dough and Reese's
along with a few chocolate chips
this was sure to be pleasant
once it finally hit my lips.
And of course one last thing
I couldn't leave out... lots of fluffy whipped cream;
it's something I never go without!
The final order of business
now that the creation was complete,
was to pull out my Real Rewards card
and happily pay for my treat.
The moment was finally here
with one more special surprise;
a new collectible spoon
presented to me before my very eyes!
Like a child at Christmas
this had been the best day;
me and my beloved fro-yo... Hooray! Hooray!
