Splits for a Cause

So when you think of the word 'splits', what comes into your mind?  The first thing I thought of was a gymnastic move, something I was never very good at.  What I am about to post about is actually ice cream relates, Banana Splits that is. 
Kelly Ripa and Electrolux are joining forces once again to celebrate the launch of Electrolux Appliance's new stand-alone refrigerator and freezer, this is where the split comes in and yes the familiar duo has split up. And to sweeten the celebration, they're bringing in the "Emperor of Ice Cream" Stephen Bruce, owner and founder of Serendipity 3, the landmark New York City restaurant and dessert spot, into the mix.  Kelly and Bruce teamed up to make banana splits and now we can dig in with our virtual spoon!
Stop by http://www.kelly-confidential.com/, you can build your ultimate banana split using virtual ingredients from classic whipped cream to caramel sauce to rainbow sprinkles. For each "split", Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund as part of its $750,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer. 
The sweetness doesn't end there!  Everyone who logs on to the site and builds a split will be automatically entered for a chance to win the daily prize - $50 towards sweet summer treats - and the grand prize: the new stand-alone refrigerator and freezer from Electrolux.  I think you can store a lot of ice cream and toppings in both of these appliances! 
Stop by and design you own banana split, what a way to keep the calories down and a great way to donate to a cause.  Who knows, you may need a kitchen remodel just to fit the new appliances if you win! Just invite me over when you win for an ice cream sundae, with bananas of course!
WHOA THERE!  I forgot to add I have a $25 American Express Gift Card for a GIVEAWAY!!!!!!  Very easy to enter.  Just tell me what your favorite ice cream is and stop by the sight to do your virtual split!  Entries must be within the United States and I will pick the random winner on JULY 12, 2010!  Winner will be posted and must contact me with 48 hours of posting the winner.  Good luck!!!!
