Celebrate Summertime and S’mores with Hershey’s Chocolate and Rascal Flatts! (Giveaway)

I have fond memories of summer when I was a kid. For several years, my family went to a friend’s cabin on a lake and built a bonfire on the beach every night. Of course, our cookout wasn’t complete without plenty of s’mores! Hopefully, you’ve had the pleasure of making and eating s’mores, but if you’re the rare person who hasn’t, they’re made with graham crackers, milk chocolate bars, and toasted marshmallows. There’s something about the combination of these three ingredients that makes an amazing summer treat. Now, Hershey’s is celebrating summer and s’mores with a special treat for their fans!

Hershey’s enlisted the awesome band, Rascal Flatts, to record an exclusive song called “Your Day to Get Away”! Even better, you can download this song for free when you purchase a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate 6-Pack. All you need to do is enter the UPC code from the package at puresmores.com to get your free song. This offer will be available until 350,000 people have downloaded the song!

I also encourage you to visit puresmores.com to build a virtual s’more (the kids will love it) and learn your “s’more personality,” hear a 30-second preview of the new song, and check out Rascal Flatts videos and photos!
