Have you seen Disney Pixar’s Cars 3 yet? Lightning McQueen is back with another rousing story of inspiration and fun, with the addition of Cruz Ramirez and her story of a sidelined dream. A lot of us have dreams we sideline, including the dream of travel, but Disney Pixar and Dole want to help one lucky family make their dream a reality! They are giving away an ultimate family road trip!
There’s a lot more to the partnership than just a contest though! They have created a multi-year healthy living initiative aimed at helping parents encourage their families to make healthier eating choices, especially during the upcoming summer and family vacation season. Families can now purchase DOLE Bananas, Pineapples, Salads and Vegetables adorned with characters from Disney Pixar’s “Cars 3” to create delicious, nutritious Dole recipes inspired by the Disney film.
I even came up with a recipe that we had the week the Cars 3 movie premiered: Tow Mater Pasta Salad! I had fun using tomatoes as wheels and wheel-shaped pasta, along with black olives like tire debris. As a NASCAR fan, this one was fun to put together and it may make an appearance at a future race party!
The contest is easy to enter, and the entry form can be found here. **CONTEST IS OVER.** Upload one photo you think epitomizes the healthy, ultimate family road trip. Share a photo of a meal that inspires a road trip vision, your own past epic road trip photo, or a destination that you think would be your choice for a dream vacation. If you are the selected winner, you could end up there! (Disney/sponsor will approve the personalized trip.) Have a caption for your photo and you’re all set! Even if you don’t win the ultimate family road trip, you still have a chance to win one of the 20 prize packages of a backpack and accessories.
I’m also hosting a sweepstakes here on my own site, to help one lucky Dangerous Cupcake Lifestyle visitor to win a Fuel Up With Dole package. Here’s a picture of my Fuel Up With Dole package that I received in exchange for sharing the sweepstakes with you.

Isn’t it cute? The backpack has a clear smaller front pocket that holds a full-sized insulated soft lunch box/bag, and the peeler has a dialer allowing you to choose one of three different options. The banana grams game is a fun spontaneous family activity, but no one wants to play with me because word games are on of the few games I’m actually good at! (I don’t win a lot of games otherwise!)
Prize Pack Includes:
Cars 3 Backpack
Dole Nutritional Institute Portion Plate
Dole Bananagrams Game
Dole Fruit and Vegetable Vouchers
