The VlasicÂ® Stork is delivering good news to one pickle-loving family in May this year. In celebration of National Pickle Month, VlasicÂ® Pickles is in search of a lucky May-born baby who meets the company’s criteria to become the official VlasicÂ® Stork Baby of 2008. The winning baby and family will win a $20,000 US Savings Bond, be officially named VlasicÂ® Stork Baby and receive a year’s supply of Vlasic Pickles.
Entrants simply e-mail a photo of the new baby, along with name, date of birth, sex, height and weight, and a statement of 50-100 words on â€˜Why My Baby Should Be the VlasicÂ® Stork Baby.â€™
If the parents of the VlasicÂ® Stork Baby want to show their love and dedication to VlasicÂ® Pickles by making his or her middle name, â€˜Crunch,â€™ the savings bond value will be increased to $25,000.
â€˜Aside from the fact that pickles are known as a common craving among pregnant women, what most people probably don’t know is that the VlasicÂ® Stork became the brand’s spokesperson during a period of low birth rates in the early 1970’s,â€™ said Senior Brand Manager Stefan Aps. â€˜Since there were fewer storks delivering babies in America at that time, VlasicÂ® created its own stork to deliver pickles! This contest is a way for the folks at VlasicÂ® Pickles to continue the tradition of delivering goodness to the world.â€™
