Music To Fruit And Salad Lovers' Ears
(NAPSA) - Fresh salad and juicy, delicious fruit find their perfect complement this summer-free music downloads-at select retailers.
In a first-of-its-kind promotion, free music downloads from the iTunes Music Store are offered with the purchase of California peaches, plums and nectarines and Fresh Express salads. Nutritious food never sounded so good-parents, kids, and music lovers of all ages can feel good about eating healthy and receiving free downloads at the same time.
Consumers will receive three free song downloads from iTunes when they purchase three pounds of California peaches, plums and nectarines with any two Fresh Express Premium Recipe Complete Salads or Salad Blends. The promotion will run in July and August 2005 and will be available through select retailers.
But free music downloads aren't the only reward. There's an even bigger reward for eating healthy foods: fresh fruits and vegetables may hold the secret to long life and vitality. Researchers are now learning that these foods contain phytonutrients, compounds that promote vibrant health and protect against chronic diseases.
There's nothing that says summer quite like a big, green leafy salad paired with those quintessential juicy summer fruits: California peaches, plums and nectarines. The variety of colorful fruits and convenience of ready-to-eat salads available now in your local produce aisle makes it easy to incorporate these healthful foods into daily meals and snacks. Fresh, great-tasting salads and delectable, sweet peaches, plums and nectarines are a great place to start.
