MASECA te paga la cuenta contest

¿Me echaron de menos? (Did you miss me?) I took a little weekend break – went to the Urban Festival in North Laredo and worked the rest of the time. If I get a chance, I will post some pictures (of the Urban Fest, not of me working).

Guess what readers in Dallas and Houston (and those Laredoans planning to travel soon)?!?  MASECA® (or if you prefer the URL: has a great new contest taking place in the following stores, a ver quien se anima:

Many of you out there know I am not a practiced chef (I pretty much burn everything) so I asked readers from different accounts, what do they make with Maseca®? Check out the variety!

    Now if only I could convince a few of you to prepare a few of these for me… kidding, kidding. So what is this contest about? Well, Maseca® is going to surprise a shopper at the above named stores:

  • If you have a Maseca product in your cart while you are in the process of checking out and the Maseca team identifies you as a winner, Maseca will pay your entire grocery store bill.
  • Once the winner has been selected, the Maseca team will begin the festivities and gather all those that are present.
  • After the crowd gathers, the Maseca team will pay for ALL of the products that the winner has in their cart.
  • The Maseca team will take photos and videos with the winners, which will be made public on the website and social media sites.
  • Check out the official flyer:

    This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This specific blog post is a sponsored paid post by Maseca® but composed how I wanted with the help of the readers listed above. Hope you liked it!
