We are giving away a Yeti Cooler! Enter to Win Here

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.

    Let’s load up with a variety of cool beverages: Yazoo Dos Perros, Angry Orchard, Iced Tea;
    plus some fresh fruit from one of our neighborhood farm to table providers and some turkey sandwiches w/ cheese (sorry Si, the cheese belongs!)…i believe a picnic on the go is ready to roll! Now which trail shall we hike?

    If lucky enough to win, this southern belle would fill her Yeti with all of her favorite things such as daily servings of yogurt as well as fresh fruits and veggies. Maybe even throw in some Cheerwine for good measure.

    Yeti and a trip to the beach — what a perfect pair!! Plenty of ice, cold iced tea and beer, and watermelon. Combine that with a fiesta of Mexican food including tacos, nachos and fajitas …. Yummy!

    Meat, cheese, eggs, milk, all the food needed for a week at the lake cabin for “Camp Granna” for my grands. I think Grandpa would love me even more if I gave him this!

    We are a very busy family and a Yeti would be such a valuable asset to have!! We are always going from here to there… Softball is our life year round from tournament ball, to Rec ball, and fall ball… Our girls are always needing a cold drink of water or Gatorade!! But when the softball tournaments aren’t on the volley ball is so then we need the adult cooler w cold beer to keep the balls in the air… Lol!!! The options are endless with a good cooler!!!!!

    What would go better in a Yeti cooler than craft beer? I’m dreaming about taking this cooler with me to kayak in Sanibel-Captiva and filing it with a selection of fantastic beers from the south. After a day of kayaking with family and friends, we would need Cigar City’s (Tampa, FL) Cucumber Saison, Westbrook’s (Mt. Pleasant, SC) Gose, Terrapin’s (Athens, GA) Recreation Ale, Foothills’ (Winston-Salem, NC) Yankee Doodle Dani, and–of course–Seminar’s (Florence, SC) Restless Wheat.

    Southern-style fried chicken, corn & bean salad, blueberry pie and champagne for this Sunday get-away…but we are really planning ahead for hurricanes. Been there. Done that.

    We would pack breast milk for our little one and baby bullet food for our toddler and go on a camping trip. I trust the cooler to keep the breast milk fresh. I would also keep deli meats cold for mom and dad sandwiches.

    We use this awesome cooler at our favorite vacation spot Cocoa Beach. For the beach we would pack it with beer, sandwiches, grapes and of course water to stay hydrated!!! For our trip back home we would to SC it would be packed with fresh caught and shrimp and the fish of the day!

    In our Yeti we’d pack all the essentials for our annual Sullivan’s Island Getaway. We always have kicked up spicy pimento cheese, our famous chicken salad, cucumber salad, lots of fresh fruit, and of course cream cheese brownie.

    July 19, 2014 at 8:16 pm
  19. Ray Longoria

    I’d pack juice and snacks for my Cub Scouts, and hit the lake in the Texas 100 degree heat.

  20. Gary Lochte

    easy………….some “chunk-sliced” fresh watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, and apple; a bottle or two of dry red wine, a loaf of fresh-baked bread, a brick of sharp cheese, and or course, a couple of links of my home-made smoked deer sausage.

    July 19, 2014 at 4:01 pm
  21. Jenna Eller

    I would have to pack homemade chicken salad, red potato salad, and key lime pie.

  22. Dwight Lisa D Norman

    I would pack a nice picnic for me and my wife to take out on a nice days boat ride and fishing trip…something we love to do. Maybe save a little space for a few fish we might catch that day. :-)

    On a recent day trip to a lavender farm in Virginia, my friend showed me how convenient and economical it is to have a packed cooler in the back seat. Upon arrival, we pulled out chairs and had a light lunch on the grounds before starting our tour and picking spree. We also reached in the cooler while driving to get a cold drink – that saved us from stopping. If I had a Yeti cooler, I’d pack some BLT’s and home-brewed ice tea, before heading on our next day trip.

    I would pack up three black forest ham sandwiches,some piclkles,some mini carrots and celery and a tomatoe, some mayo,this would be for half of a Yeti. The other half would be a six pack of my favorite adult beverage and a bottle of my wife’s favorite wine.
    This all began of course by adding ice in the Yeti for a little cool down,adding some more ice and sprinkling some ice cream salt on that layer with some more ice,and a little more sprinkle of ice cream salt. By the time we arrive to our destination, yum yum yum will the meal be because of the Y-E-T-I.
    Cheers,David Renfro.

    I’d pack everything but the kitchen sink in my Yeti cooler! From college game day tailgating to little league ball games, white sandy beaches to shaded grassy parks, my Yeti would equip my family with all our cold refreshments for days hard at play!

    This Yeti would be great for a day on DeGray Lake on a hot summer day in Arkansas. Mom’s pimento is a must along with diet coke!!!

    Tailgates, Tan lines, and Ice Cold Beer, three words that describe a perfect summer and start to college football season. Down in Tallahassee this Yeti would be perfect addition to pack ice cold beers or Arnold Palmers for a day of tailgating or a summer afternoon out on the farm. This would be a great sidekick to such memorable times. Go Noles!

    This cooler would be perfect for when We go to the park to BBQ with Family and Friends on weekends and Holidays. Great for keeping Meats and Salads cold. Thank You for the chance to Win this Amazing Cooler.

    I would use this cooler to pack for the beach and a day of boating in the hot Florida sun. What a luxury, to be able to have COLD drinks for the kids, fruit, yogurt, BOAT DRINKS and sandwiches!

    My husband and I are new to the “lake” scene. A cooler like this would be a great addition to our new boat. There is nothing like really cold water to soothe your thirst on a really hot day. Go YETI!

    I have always wanted a Yeti Cooler to keep my homemade, Nutter Butter Banana Pudding extra cold and fresh! We play on Lake Murray, SC very weekend during the summer and I bring my Banana Pudding to every gathering with friends. How I would love to bring it on our boat in a new Yeti Cooler!

    I would pack deviled eggs and a watermelon/feta salad for a Furman Univ football tailgate this fall.
