Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for CRYSTAL LIGHT. I received a gift card to purchase CRYSTAL LIGHT products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
There are two things that I love – country music and a good drink. Thankfully, CRYSTAL LIGHT thinks the same way that I do! I am thrilled to introduce a phenomenal partnership that will earn you valuable extras! The CRYSTAL LIGHT and Miranda Lambert Platinum Points Program.
What comes to mind when someone asks you about “a perfect pair?” Bert and Ernie, Tarzan and Jane, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, just to name a few. Memorable partnerships emerge when two things come together in harmony. CRYSTAL LIGHT is the delicious, low-calorie, totally guilt-free drink mix that found a perfect partner in country music star Miranda Lambert. The pair teamed up to launch a brand new rewards program that fans of both Miranda and CRYSTAL LIGHT will love!
I love Crystal Light because my kids go through anywhere from one to two GALLONS of drink every day. Years ago, I used to buy Kool-Aid for them – the kind that you had to add sugar to, so that I had a small amount of control on their sugar intake. Unfortunately, too little sugar and they wouldn’t drink it, too much sugar and they were bouncing off the walls. In addition, with J. having ADHD, giving him a steady diet of Kool-Aid to drink (even when I did eventually cut out all that had red-dye in them) was just setting the poor kid up for failure.
That is what I love about Crystal Light. It’s a better alternative for my kids (who only drink water when I absolutely force them to) and we both love the variety of flavors. Check this out too – now there are three different lines – Classic, Mocktails, and Pure. I buy the classic for the boys, but I am dying to get my hands on some of the Mocktails – all the virgin ingredients you need to make a margarita, a mojito, or an appletini. Can you say, “Girls Night Out?” I am so totally going to get all three of them to share with my girls for a girls night out so stay tuned for that bit of fun!

The new program launches this fall and coincides with Miranda’s Platinum Tour, allowing fans to redeem points for fan gear and exclusive offers.

Crystal Light at Wal-Mart
We’re Wal-Mart shoppers 98% of the time. It’s close, convenient, and since we have a Super Center right up the street, I can go shopping any time of the day or night (which can sometimes be a bad thing when hubby wants that late night snack – I can’t say “Sorry, the stores are closed!” and stay snuggled in bed!) Crystal Light is available at Wal-Mart stores nationwide, so finding the flavors your family loves is a snap! We found ours in the drink aisle:
Miranda Lambert Platinum Tour
Miranda Lambert is an award-winning country star with a voice that sounds like heaven, in my opinion anyway! Miranda married another country music star favorite of mine in 2011, Blake Shelton, one of the hosts of “The Voice.” I think that Miranda and Blake are another one of those “perfect pairs” that people think of!
Miranda kicked off her Platinum Tour this year and performed at the Virginia Beach Farm Bureau arena in August. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend, but I’ve got the album and just love it!
Did you know that Miranda was the inspiration for some “awesomesauce” recipes using Crystal Light? You have to check them out on the Crystal Light web site. You have the Randarita, Front Porch Peach Tea, Southern Sangria, Carolina Colada, and Platinum Blackberry Lemonade. They all look absolutely amazing and I am definitely going to be trying each one of them! If you decide to mix up one of the Miranda-inspired recipes, drop us a comment below and let us know, or tag us on Twitter using #RanFan!
So here’s the final down low. Go to Wal-Mart. Buy some CRYSTAL LIGHT. Snap a photo of your receipt, upload it to the CRYSTAL LIGHT Platinum Points Program, earn points, win cool stuff from Miranda Lambert. Share with your friends, and you’ll get bonus points when they sign up and snap and upload their receipts too! What could be more fun and guilt-free?
