Do you have a favorite, go-to flavor combination that you mix every time you use a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine? If so, the company wants to know, and you could win $10,000 for your most creative recipes.
你有没有一款最爱的、非此不可、每次用可口可乐自由组合售卖机的时候都要混合的组合口味呢?如果有的话,可口可乐公司很想知道。并且你的创意配方可以赢得10000美元的奖金。
Coke is launching its first-ever “Make Your Mix” contest this week. To enter, you need to submit a post on Twitter or Instagram, including the hashtag#MakeYourMixContest, and a photo and description of your ultimate drink recipe by June 30, 2019.
可口可乐本周举行了首届“混你的合”(Make Your Mix)大赛。想参赛的话,要在推特或Instergram上发帖,打上#MakeYourMixContest话题,并且上传一张照片,附上一段对最终饮料配方的描述。参赛截止时间是2019年6月30日。
The contest is prompted, in part, because people already do this and share their favorite combinations on social media, Sarah Greenberg Sachs, director of Coca-Cola Freestyle marketing, tells CNBC Make It.
可口可乐自由组合市场营销经理萨拉·格林伯格·萨克斯说,举办这场大赛的部分原因是大家已经在这样做了,并且把自己最喜欢的组合发布到社交媒体上。
“We just really wanted to reward consumers for doing something that they’re already doing, being creative, experimenting and mixing the brands they love,” says Greenberg Sachs.
格林伯格·萨克斯说,“我们真的想为消费者正在做的事情奖励他们,奖励他们创意十足、进行实验、混合他们喜欢的品牌的饮料。”
If you’re determined to score the $10,000 grand prize, you’ll first need to find one of Coke’s 50,000 touchscreen Freestyle machines nationwide that dispense a wide variety of the company’s fountain drink brands. There’s a helpful Freestyle machine locator where you can enter your address or zip code to find the one nearest you.
如果想赢得10000美元大奖的话,你首先得找到一台触屏的可口可乐自由混合售卖机。全美有50000台这样的机器,售卖可口可乐旗下的各种饮料。也可使用售卖机定位器,输入自己的地址或者邮编就能找到最近的贩卖机。
Once you find a machine, start mixing. For the contest, you’ll need to mix together two to three drink choices offered by the Freestyle machines to create your perfect flavor combination.
找到机器后,就开始混合吧。要参赛的话,你需要从机器提供的饮料品种中选择两种或三种进行混合,创造自己的完美混合风味
Once you’ve crafted the perfect mix, submit the recipe on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #MakeYourMixContest. Entries must contain a photo and a description of the components of your recipe, according to the official rules. But don’t worry, you don’t need to get technical and include exact amounts such as percentages and ounces.
制作好完美混合后,要在推特或者Instagram上提交配方,带上#MakeYourMixContest话题。根据官方参赛规则,参赛作品要附上一张照片以及对配方成分的描述。但是别担心,不用那么专业,无需添上百分比或者盎司这样的精确分量。
Those entering must be at least 13 years old as of June 30, 2019 and the contest is only open to those in the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. But each person can submit up to 10 tweets or Instagram posts, so feel free to get really creative.
参赛选手必须在6月30号前年满13周岁,并且比赛只面向美国的50个州以及哥伦比亚地区。但是每人最多可以提交十条推文或Instagram帖子,所以尽情创造吧!
