NORWICH, N.Y., June 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This Fourth of July (America's favorite "dipping" holiday) Chobani is marking the launch of Chobani MezeTM Dips, its first step outside the yogurt aisle, by bringing nature to the heart of the celebration. Specifically: a special, unique home to be shared with one lucky fan across America, inspired by the flavors and ingredients of its newest product platform.
"July 4th is all about spending time in the places you love, with people you love. It's also the biggest dipping holiday of the year," said Peter McGuinness, Chief Marketing and Brand Officer, Chobani. "Our home was a fun way to launch our new meze dips by creating something beautiful and natural to share with our fans. It's reflective of how we make and market our food."
The brand's first-ever edible, livable and shareable space was designed by the brand with the help of local landscapers and chefs—combining culinary tradition, fresh produce and beautiful design in one space. From a floor-to-ceiling living wall to an indoor pool with floating gardens, the home contains more than 25 varieties of produce that serve as "edible spoons" – the perfect foods to pair with Chobani MezeTM Dips. For the holiday weekend, Chobani will open the door for one lucky winner and three guests to experience this stunning home for themselves.
From June 20 to June 24, U.S. residents over the age of 21 can enter to have a chance to call the Chobani Meze Home their own by visiting http://www.chobanimezehome.com/ and sharing how they dip.
After learning how people across the country enjoy Chobani MezeTM Dips with friends, family or on their own, Chobani will select one winner at random to spend Fourth of July weekend with three guests in one of America's most classic cities, complete with a diverse array of food, culture and one of the country's best fireworks displays. The experience will include:
- A four-night stay in the Chobani Meze Home from Friday, July 1 and check-out Tuesday, July 5
- A well-stocked fridge and pantry with plenty of Chobani MezeTM Dips and edible spoons
Chobani MezeTM Dips mark the company's first product to be sold outside the yogurt aisle. In keeping with Chobani's full product portfolio, Chobani MezeTM Dips are made with real veggies and only natural ingredients. They contain 80 percent less fat and 65 percent fewer calories than the leading brand of hummus*, are made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients and are gluten free and Kosher Certified.
Whether at a backyard barbecue or near the pool with a bag of pretzels or chips or a platter of crudité, all four flavors of Chobani MezeTM Dips make a delicious addition to any occasion:

- Three Pepper Salsa – a bold blend of green peppers, chili peppers & jalapeno peppers with herbs
