LUNCH OF CHAMPIONS: Arnold®/Brownberry®/Oroweat® Breads, Official Bread Supplier of the U.S. Olympic Team, Partner with Olympians Misty May-Treanor and Abby Wambach
Contest to Find Sandwich Worthy of the Gold Sets Winner to Receive Private Volleyball Clinic with Misty May-Treanor
HORSHAM, Pa. (April 26, 2012) -- Arnold®/Brownberry®/Oroweat® Breads, the official bread supplier of the U.S. Olympic Team since 2004, has teamed up with Olympic gold medalists Misty May-Treanor, beach volleyball champion, and Abby Wambach, co-captain of the Women’s Soccer Team. The partnership features the athletes’ original recipes, tips, videos and promotions offering the chance to interact with each athlete in-person. The first promotion, the Slice of Gold recipe contest, is now open for entries on https://www.facebook.com/arnoldandoroweatbread.
Sandwich lovers nationwide can submit their recipes in the Slice of Gold recipe contest today through Noon EST on July 7 for the opportunity to win a private volleyball clinic with two-time Olympic gold medalist Misty May-Treanor. The sandwich name, directions and ingredients, including type of Arnold/Brownberry/Oroweat Bread or Sandwich Thins® roll, can be submitted to the Slice of Gold tab at https://www.facebook.com/arnoldandoroweatbread. For inspiration, check out Misty’s favorite sandwiches on Facebook, like her tuna on Arnold/Brownberry/Oroweat Health-full® 10 Grain Bread. Each 80-calorie slice of Health-full 10-Grain bread is baked with whole grains, 5 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein.
“My diet is an important part of how well I perform on the court. So I make healthy choices, but I won’t sacrifice taste for nutrition,” said Misty, who serves as a judge of the contest. “I’m looking for a sandwich that’s creative and good for you, and still tastes great too.”
Abby Wambach, a cooking aficionado who dreams of owning a restaurant one day, shares her cooking tips and original sandwich recipes, including Turkey Panini with a Kick. Starting on June 25 and continuing through August 9, Arnold/Brownberry/Oroweat will launch a sweepstakes to win Olympic Games-themed prizes, with the grand prize of a soccer clinic with Abby.
“I love sandwiches. They’re delicious and so versatile, and are an easy way to get comfortable experimenting in the kitchen,” said Abby. “It’s important to start with a great base, like Oroweat 100% Whole Wheat Bread, then add your favorite ingredients or try new ones.”
Arnold/Brownberry/Oroweat Breads are proud to partner with the U.S. Olympic Team, supplying delicious and nutritious breads to Olympians at training facilities nationwide. As part of the partnership, the brand is also donating $200,000 to the U.S. Olympic Committee to support Olympic and Paralympic athletes. Arnold/Brownberry/Oroweat Breads are available under the Arnold brand in the East, the Brownberry brand in the Midwest, and the Oroweat brand in the West.
