If you’ve seen our Facebook posts recently, you’ve noticed a really cool giveaway with our friends from Erin Baker’s® based out of Bellingham, WA. Not familiar? Let’s catch you up to speed.
Who is Erin Baker? Erin is the founder and CEO of Erin Baker’s® Wholesome Baked Goods. She and her team create a variety of nutritious and hearty breakfast items and snacks such as the Original Breakfast Cookie, Mini’s and Homestyle and Endurance Granola. They recently launched Blue Bike™ Sprouted Snacks, an on-the-go snack packed with whole food ingredients like, protein-filled nuts and sprouted seeds, seasoned with only fresh spices.
So where does Schwinn fit into all of this?
Well, the story behind Blue Bike™ is pretty remarkable. Back in 1996, Erin was on a mission to change breakfast with the Breakfast Cookies she baked and delivered around town. Her cookies soon became so popular that she needed a commercial oven, but the bank wouldn’t lend the funds to buy it. So, to buy the oven, Erin sold her most valuable possession – her car – and instead of driving, she delivered baked goods on her blue Schwinn bike. Blue Bike is a tribute to the tough decisions Erin had to make to turn her bakery into what it is today (and fun fact: that same bike now hangs on the wall at the bakery!).
Perhaps you haven’t had to sell your most valuable possession to follow your dreams, but you can always enter our friends’ Bike Like Baker Sweepstakes for a chance to roll around town on a replica of Erin’s blue bike (not to mention, win a year’s worth of yummy Erin Baker’s snacks!). Contest ends Tuesday, January 31 with the winner announced February 1, so get to it!
We’re so honored to be a small part of Erin’s journey, and wish her nothing but continued success. Click the link above to enter, and good luck!
