Back for another helping, the Third Annual #BeefTallowFrenchFries “Tweet-to-Win” Contest kicks off on July 5th, a fitting lead-in to #NationalBeefTallowDay on July 13, Coast Packing Company announced.
Coast Packing is once again hungry for the public’s most poetic/ecstatic/witty/tasty tweets proclaiming their desire for beef tallow (that is, beef fat) French fries. Back in the day, beef fat fries were what made a certain major burger chain famous. The “Tweet-to-Win” Contest (http://coastpacking.com/beeftallowfrenchfries) is a golden (pun intended) opportunity for participants to take home some bling while celebrating #NationalBeefTallowDay, which also happens to be #NationalFrenchFryDay. Prizes include:
- All-Clad Deep Fryer (retail $300) to make beef tallow French fries at home
- $200 certificate from a favorite “Take Out or Delivery” restaurant that features #beeftallowFrenchfries
To ensure a level playing field during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Tweet-to-Win contest will showcase only those restaurants making their tallow fries available on a take-out or delivery basis. At the conclusion of the contest, Coast will release an updated version of the Ultimate French Fry List (http://coastpacking.com/tallowfriesfatmap/), which made its debut on last year’s National Beef Tallow Day.
Fry-lovers have two ways to enter: submit a favorite restaurant that features beef tallow French fries by including the hashtag #BeefTallowFrenchFries and tag @CoastPackingCo, or submit a home-cooked version of tallow fries, with the hashtag #beeftallowfrenchfries and tag @CoastPackingCo — it’s Coast’s way of celebrating all the home cooks out there hunkering down during the pandemic. Photos of the French fries should be included along with the tweet. Coast Packing will select the winning tweets based on originality and creativity, and announce the winner in mid-July.
