There’s Just One Thing

That Would Make This Moment Perfect, Sweetheart!

Some Watkins
Mandarin Orange Dip

for the fruit salad in our picnic basket!
Yes, Watkins has been bringing satisfaction to picnic baskets and dining tables for more than 140 years! Don’t let summer slip away without trying the delicious, cool taste of Watkins Mandarin Orange or Cucumber Dill Dip Mix. In fact, if you stop by the Big Bear Country Store’s booth at the Big Bear Farmer’s Market on Tuesdays from 8:30 to 1, you can get a dollar off each jar of these popular flavors. That’s only $7.99 a jar, for satisfaction that will last you well into fall, when other summer pleasures are but a faded memory.

Happy 100th Birthday, Lucy!

I think of you every morning when I have my daily dose of Vitameatavegamin.

Who can ever forget Lucy when she promoted Vitameatavegamin with the now famous words, "It’s so tasty, too."

We at the Big Bear Farmer’s Market, just like most of you, grew up with Lucy. Today we join the rest of America – no, people around the world fortunate to be exposed to the antics of this classy lady through "I Love Lucy" -- in celebrating what would have been her 100th birthday.

It’s hard to believe that Watkins was already an established 34-year-old company the year that Lucy was born. Already, the product line had grown far beyond its initial pain liniment. But it wasn’t until this decade that Watkins introduced a full assortment of vitamins and dietary supplements to help Americans feel better and live longer.

Two years ago, Watkins – with consultation from a team of physicians and nutritionists – developed "Immunergy." A blend of eight fruits and herb seed powders and D-Ribose, Immunergy is all natural and caffeine free. As the name implies, it is a daily immune support and energy boost. Lucy would have never wrinkled her nose up at the taste, nor would she have become a bit tipsy; Immununergy does not contain alcohol.

Those of us at the Big Bear Country Store are celebrating Lucy’s 100th birthday by offering two boxes of Immunnunergy for the price of one -- just $15.99! You won’t find this special offer on the JR Watkins website. You have to call store manager Alan toll-free at 888-881-7372. Quantities are limited.

This morning, when I mixed up my daily dose of Immunergy, I raised the effervescent glass and said, "Here’s to you, Lucy. It’s so tasty, too."
