SouthernFoodNow_Online Banner


We consider it a moral obligation to have cold beer, pimiento cheese, and icebox pie at the ready for whatever summer fun might arise. 2296302_AtoZGBetween tailgates, fishing trips, beach breaks, family reunions, porch hangouts, and picnics in the park, coolers are serious business around here.

Lucky for you, we’re giving away the holy grail of coolers. Able to keep drinks and food cold for a week, Yeti is nothing short of magic. Bonus! They’re grizzly bear-proof, but let’s hope you don’t have to find that out the hard way.

Tell us what’s you would pack in a Yeti in the comments section and you’ll be entered to win this Tundra 35 model. For details on contest rules and judging criteria, click here.

    Plz consider me as a chance to win one of these coolers, I have been trying to get one since they came out with them. But ever time I think I might can get one, something comes up. Either I’m having to take care of a sick and love one or different things. I draw $721 SSD and I barely make it on that. So plz consider me. To win a yeti cooler…

    I continue receiving entries for the Yeti cooler (that I wanted) yet the contest is over. Until now I had no idea other than I had not received any notification. When I attempted to find who won the 30 day posting period was over. Can you provide?

    Can’t think of anything better than a day in the Blue Ridge mountains, next to a fire with a #Yeti cooler full of: #Sweetwater beer, Pimento cheese made with Dukes mayo, quail and bacon for grilling, Fresh Rainbow trout to throw next to the quail, silver queen corn and plenty of ice for some totties after a rustic wild game dinner!

    My son and I live in Tennessee and fish during some really hot summers and enjoy cold dunks while fishing. We would also use the cooler for my sons 9 year old baseball team as we travel during the spring and summer. Thank you…

    My brother in law and I have cut and set Cedar fence posts. We did some of this on summer days in the south. What a blessing to have cold water at our worksite. It’s in the country and there is no electricity yet or running water. Plus, we could keep lunch in the cooler also.

    December 16, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    I live in Oakland, CA where I not only fish religiously but also raise rabbits and chickens in my “urban farm.” I’d use this Yeti Cooler to transport recently slaughtered rabbits and chickens, as well as fish that I catch, to my friends and family. They all love the fresh meat I provide.

  31. Jordyn Leigh Draughon

    If I won this yeti it would stay stocked with the ultimate tailgate supplies. Beer, hamburger meat, steaks, water, gatorade, frogg toggs, veggie trays and fruit trays to keep all of the rowdy boys fed. If it wasnt at a tailgate it would be by a tent at the lake stocked with water, hotdogs, beer, wine, fruit, and hamburgers. I would love to have this to take on all of my outdoor adventures.

    I would love to have this yeti cooler because me and my wife have a 3 month old and are just starting our little family and it would really come in handy on any trip/vacation that we may go on. It would hold all the necessities for us and our baby.

    November 9, 2014 at 8:30 pm
  33. Amy Cox

    I’d pack snow! Snow from the first time my children see it, feel it, throw it. I would take it back to Florida, keep it in our freezer, so my kids can have a wonderful reminder of great times!! ⛄️❄️

    I have a fishing guide business and I would pack food, lots of drinks and snacks in a yeti cooler. This would help my business and I would impress customers with this awesome cooler. I really need a yeti cooler…only the best for my guide trips and customers. I’m sure I’ll give you lots of referrals if I had a yeti cooler on board my boat.

    November 1, 2014 at 6:25 pm
  36. Sharon Ashmore

    I would just live out of the cooler….I’d pack drinks, meat, bread, fruit and top it off with a bottle of wine. I’ve been dreaming of owning a Yeti cooler….I hope my dream comes true.

  42. Patricia Crouch

    It would really help keep the groceries cold while I go to different stores to get the best deals. I’m on a very strict budget and there’s five of us. Our mom passed away on August 31st 2014, so this would help tremendously.

    October 20, 2014 at 7:58 pm
  43. Kelly ramsey

    We pack our Yeti’s with the essentials. Beer, burgers & remade “camp packs”. During hunting season we pack one Yeti with ice only to pack out the meat!

    Since we live on the Gulf of Mexico and go boating all the time, I would pack sandwiches and juices for the kids and some beers for the adults. Then on fishing trips, hopefully there will be fish put into the cooler for dinner.

    October 13, 2014 at 8:59 am
