This Valentine’s day, Aria, my partner James and I were invited to Ehrmann’s MiximLove event to celebrate the U.S. launch of the new Ehrmann Mixim Greek Yogurt. The free event also raised money for the Children’s Heart Foundation. The three of us were stoked that the event was held on the Queen Mary because we had never been on the ship before!
As we walked up to the entrance, we were blown away by not only how huge the ship is, but also that it was bright pink! The Queen Mary was decorated with pink lights and huge hearts displaying the Mixim logo. It was adorable and super inviting.
Upon checking in, we were right away offered samples of the Mixim yogurt and asked to pose in front of the event backdrop. I also a received a pink rose making it the second time I got flowers that day (and my first Valentine’s day I ever received flowers)!
Making our way upstairs took some time because Aria wanted look around for ghosts in the beautiful halls of the Queen Mary Hotel. Once on the deck where the event was held, we were surprised to see not just couples but many families enjoying the view, listening to Don’t Stop Believin,’ a Journey tribute band, and eating Mixim yogurt together. The band sounded just like Journey and played plenty of their greatest love songs that really set the romantic mood. There were also Mixim friends walking around with big pink glowing hearts floating above them which looked especially amazing once the sun set.
We had access to the VIP lounge. The exclusive area was setup in with a minimalist but luxe decor, equipped with a bar area and an impressive food spread. This food spread presented us with a culinary treasure that we’ve been raving over ever since…a cupcake with greek yogurt frosting! That frosting….it was amazing light but not too sweet. It was also incredibly creamy rather than grainy. Aria later did some reasearch to confirm that greek yogurt frosting was an actual thing and so now you have one more way to potentially enjoy your Ehrmann’s Mixim greek yogurt!
The evening ended with an incredible fireworks display including festive heart-shaped ones! We were happy for the Ehrmann Love Boat experience and went home with romance and bromance in our hearts!
We were so impressed with the flavors we tried that Aria and I made a special trip to Albertson’s to stock up!
Out of the six delicious flavors, my favorites were the Cherry and Dark Chocolate Curls flavor and the Honey and Coconut + Almonds flavor. I’ve always loved putting honey into yogurt so this was the perfect combination for me. And don’t even get me started on dark chocolate and cherries – is there a more perfect mix? Aria’s favorites were the Cherry and Dark Chocolate Curls flavor and the Raspberry and Dark + White Chocolate Curls flavor. For her, the yogurt was a healthy alternative to snacks like black cherry ice cream and the raspberry was tart but still sweet making it quite the delicious combo. Other flavors include: Strawberry and Granola; Mango + Pineapple and Coconut + Almonds; and Blackberry + Pomegranate and Granola + Dried Fruit.
Some unique things we to share are that the Ehrmann Mixim yogurt containers are adorable and practical. The seams on the package fold over easily (unlike many other greek yogurt containers) and that seprate this yogurt from others are the packaging is adorable, the seams on the package fold over very easily (unlike other greek yogurt containers) making it ideal for mixing in the two perfectly paired toppings that can be added a little at a time or all at once. and rBST and preservative free,
Other cool things include the fact that MIXIM delivers all of the benefits of a traditional Greek yogurt, but it is smoother, less tart and creamier than other products. I think a large part of this is because the new MIXIM is crafted using Ehrmann’s authentic strained Greek yogurt made only with natural ingredients. That means the yogurts are free of artificial preservatives, additives, colors and sweeteners. Pretty impressive, right?!
