Eggland’s Best CEO: The cluck is ticking

20130922_082124Time is running out. The cluck is ticking and Sept. 30 is the last day to vote in the Eggland’s Best CEO contest.

In my original Eggland’s Best blog post, I assured Charlie Lanktree that, as one of the contest’s 12 finalists, I was not after his job (because surely he was oh, so worried). After all, Lanktree is an extraordinary Chief Executive Officer, celebrating 16 years of double-digit growth with Eggland’s Best (watch this FOX news clip).

I just want to be the Chief Egg Officer, an egg-bassador for the company, celebrating the EB stamp, which ensures superior quality and freshness in every egg.

Of course, it was just a contest.

But something happened along the way.  I fell hard for the plush egg my children nicknamed Mr. EB Eggy Pants. Mr. EB has become more than a mascot for the world’s best eggs. Mr. EB has become part of the Petersen family.

He cooks with us, dines with us and even travels with us. Mr. EB represents the wholesomeness of Eggland’s Best eggs, as well as the values my husband, David, and I are working to instill in our children. We are already so blessed with our daughters, Serina, 8, and Sophia, 6 and my mother, “Mormor,” who lives with us as well.

But Mr. EB, well — he completes us.

My husband thinks I’ve become obsessed with Eggland’s Best. Sure, my social media and blog posts may seem a little egg-cessive, but I remind David that I’m simply a loyal woman who wears her heart on her sleeve. Isn’t that why he fell in love with me in the first place?

My family and I eat Eggland’s Best eggs because they taste clean and fresh and are nutritionally superior, thanks to the all-vegetarian diet their well-cared for hens enjoy. These eggs are a big part of my family’s healthy lifestyle and balanced diet, packed with protein, vitamins B and D, Omega-3s and more.

They may cost more than other brands, but these eggs, served scrambled, poached, boiled or fried, are worth it. And I promise you, nothing will brighten a dreary morning more than an EB egg served sunny-side up.

No, I don’t want Lanktree’s job or his corner office with the magnificent view, if he has one.

I simply want to become the Eggland’s Best Chief Egg Officer. 

Sounds EB enough, right? But remember, the cluck is ticking so click here to vote daily through 9/30!
