Let The Pork Pinterest Scavenger Hunt Begin!


As a kid, I loved to participate in scavenger hunts. Didn't you? They’re such a fun, simple concept: you get a list of clues and have to locate items based on the clues. I still remember the thrill I felt when I found the items I had been hunting for.

That’s why we’re bringing back some of that old-school fun – and adding in a digital twist – for the holidays with a National Pork Board Pinterest Scavenger Hunt! And to up the ante, we’re picking weekly winners to receive a $50 gift card and a Pork Party prize pack!

For those of you who are new to Pinterest, it’s a virtual pin board platform that allows users to organize and share photos of all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pin boards to collect inspirational ideas for things like planning weddings, decorating homes and collecting favorite recipes… especially ones with pork. Hint hint. For instance, on my Pinterest page, I've got boards for “Styles for Me,” “Pretty Things,” “Cool Ideas,” and “We Heart Bacon” to name a few.


1. Visit us here at Pork Knife and Spoon every Monday for a photo hint, like the one we’ve included at the end of this post. This contest runs for four weeks, so be sure to check back each week for a new photo hint and chance to win!

2. Then visit Pork Be inspired’s Pinterest page and hunt for the full image. Be sure to look on ALL of Pork Be Inspired’s pin boards for the full image; you never know which board you might find it on!

Here’s an example of a photo hint and the full image solution:


3. Once you’ve found the full image that corresponds to the photo hint, email us at PorkSocial@gmail.com using the subject line “I Found It” with this information:

· Your Name

The deadline for entries will be at midnight Eastern Time each Sunday. We’ll randomly select one weekly winner who has submitted the correct full image answer to win the $50 gift card and Pork Prize Pack.
