Win Big, Give a Little

eCreamery is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands for January’s feature flavor, Big Swirl, Little Crunch. The delicious vanilla base with peanut butter cups, chocolate covered waffle cone pieces, and fudge is made all the sweeter with both a chance to win and a chance to support BBBS of the Midlands. Take a photo enjoying this month’s signature flavor, or any of eCreamery’s creative concoctions, and post it to your favorite social media account with the hashtag #BigDeliciousMoment. Tag Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands and eCreamery, (@bbbsmidlands and @ecreamery on twitter) and you are entered into a weekly drawing for $10 announced every Friday. On January 21, a portion of the day’s proceeds will be donated to BBBS Midlands.
