Así son las Peras USA

mx-display1I just returned from a trip to Mexico, and had the opportunity to see a variety of our different USA Pear promotions in action.  In the produce section of the supermarket, Mexican shoppers can often spot demonstrators handing out samples, recipe brochures, and nutrition information about USA Pears. 

We also have many activities for kids: in schools, children’s museums, and in stores as well for the little ones that tag along shopping with mom and dad.  The giant Pear Buddy puzzle below is just one example – did you notice baby Seckel in the bottom right corner?  Pears are a sweet substitution for candy and other sugary treats that kids love to snack on!mx-puzzle

Our Spanish-speaking USA Pear enthusiasts can visit Club de Peras for video games, kids’ recipes, coloring sheets, and other fun activities that teach kids about nutrition and being active.  Even if you don’t speak Spanish,  I strongly recommend Capitán Anjou (Captain Anjou) as he battles against junk food in outer space!

mx-giveaways1For Mexican families, we just launched a new program called “Nutre a tu Familia de Bienestar,” which we call “Healthy Fruits for Healthy Families” in English.  Nutritionists visit the supermarkets and provide consultations with shoppers about a healthy diet, body weight, and lifestyle and how pears can play a role (you, too, can learn how in the Facts and Nutrition section of, as well as the always-insightful advice and tips from Amy!).  Shoppers also receive a goody bag featuring recipe booklets, measuring tape to keep track of inches lost off the waistline, and pear packer for on-the-go snacks. Tools for a great start towards your quest for a healthy lifestyle!

About Lynsey

I work with USA Pear marketing offices that work in 38 countries all over the world: from Latin America to the Middle East, from Europe to Southeast Asia and places in between, our representatives serve markets on every continent except Antarctica. I love the opportunity to practice my Spanish and pick up new phrases in other languages (even if it’s just the basics of “hello,” “goodbye,” “thank you” and of course “pear”: pera, birne, гру́ша [GROO-sha], and more to come). I’ll be sharing highlights of the exciting and interesting activities that are taking place to promote USA Pears around the world. My favorite pear variety is Comice. Yum!
