While helping Annie’s Homegrown choose colors for their new offices in Berkeley, CA, we got excited about a joint promo that would celebrate the missions of both of our companies: healthy food and healthy hues.

When creating the dessert recipe for this promo, we knew we had to use Annie’s Chocolate Bunny Grahams — a favorite in the YOLO offices. When paired with strawberry-lemonade ice cream, you’ll want to skip dinner and go right to dessert! We chose THRIVE .04 as a backdrop on this Color Card, because it really doesn’t get any sweeter than this color! Use it anywhere you want to add hint of vintage with a contemporary twist.

Let us know below which YOLO color you’d like to win from one of our beautiful palettes, The Earth’s Color Collection, The Color of Hope and the SPROUT Collection — your comment will enter you to win a quart of YOLO paint in the YOLO color of your choice and a goodie bag of Annie’s Homegrown products (see sample prize below). A random winner will be selected and announced here tomorrow!

As a bonus, the first 100 entries sends $100 to, a non-profit organization that enables gardeners to donate their excess harvest to those in need.

If you haven’t done so already, visit our Facebook page and become a fan to stay in the loop for future contests, design tips, color help and more!

Congrats to yesterday’s winner, Beth M.!
