When I stop to think about the summer, there are a few activities that immediately come to mind. Be it weekends at the beach with Julio and Canela, drinks on a patio after a busy day at the office, or a picnic in the park with friends; summer is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors. As many of you who follow me on social media will have seen, I recently had the opportunity to host a picnic with A&W Canada to celebrate their new #PicnicGuarantee. Read what that means for Canadians from coast-to-coast all summer long and how you can enter to win our latest contest!
I consider myself blessed to have such talented friends. When I thought about who I would want to share an A&W Canada picnic with, Ama of AmaScriver.com, Meghan of MeghanYoung.ca, Julio of Fashionights.com and Lauren of ThisRenegadeLove.com immediately came to mind. Not only are they some of Canada’s best media, but I consider them all close friends. What’s better than a picnic with close friends?!
On a beautiful Sunday afternoon we gathered in a local Toronto park to unwind with delicious food and some fun. We recently told you about the #BaconGuarantee – which is part of A&W’s commitment to “source simple, great-tasting ingredients, farmed with care.” As a restaurant, they are dedicated using only the best ingredients to ensure that Canadians can feel good about their meal.
A&W’s Ingredients Guarantee extends to their beef, chicken, bacon AND eggs. What many people may not realize is that an undertaking of this nature is very expensive, however A&W knew that this investment in quality ingredients would help Canadians to realize how important this decision really is.
Just in time for the summer, A&W’s #PicnicGuarantee is all about helping us to get outside faster by making picnic prep quick and easy with a menu of great tasting options!
Did I mention that we got to try the NEW Smoky BBQ Teen Burger? Available for a limited time this summer, this sweet and savoury burger is a must try item off the menu! I MAY have enjoyed a few of them in the sun while laughing and relaxing with friends…
Take a look at a few of our favourite #PicnicGuarantee moments from our recent A&W picnic:
