ON THE FENCE ABOUT BRINGING BAE HOME FOR THANKSGIVING? RITAS SAYS “GO FOR IT”
RITAS is Footing the Bill to Fly Your S.O. Home for the Holiday
Maybe it’s their table manners. Maybe it’s their face tattoo. Whatever it is, 70% of Americans aged between 25-34, are scared or anxious about bringing their new partner home to meet the family. Once RITAS learned these results, they said “Hold my Cran-Ber-RITA,” and took action.
RITAS believes you should #NeverApologize for who you are or who you’re bringing to the Thanksgiving table. So, to celebrate the seasonal return of Cran-Ber-RITA, they’re offering couples a boost of cash-powered confidence: RITAS will cover the cost of a ticket to fly your S.O. home for family dinner. Plus, they’ll throw in a case of Cran-Ber-RITA, so neither of you have to arrive empty-handed.
Watch real-life stories, curated by RITAS, showcasing the value of taking the next step with your partner (and your family) this Thanksgiving
“Whether it’s a conversation, a drink, or a person, you should never apologize for what you bring to the table,” said Chelsea Phillips, VP of Beyond Beer Brands at Anheuser Busch. “RITAS believes in this wholeheartedly, so we are removing travel as a barrier so our fans can take that leap and celebrate who they love with their family.”
RITAS also teamed up with New York City-based Relationship Expert Susan Winter to advise couples through this time of heightened nerves.
“The holidays are the time we get together with those closest to our hearts. Why not magnify the joy by introducing your significant other to your family on this special occasion,” said Winter. “While the first introduction may seem scary and uncertain, the benefits far outweigh any temporary fears. Trust that your family will see the reasons why you love your mate and join in this celebration with you.”
To take part, head to @RITAS Instagram page and tell the world what you’ll #NeverApologize for loving about your boo. Make sure to include #NeverApologize and #Sweepstakes between November 14 – November 19. 20 lucky winners will be selected and notified on November 20, scoring a $1,500 voucher to put toward a flight of their choice and will be provided with a case of Cran-Ber-RITA so they don’t have to show up to dinner empty-handed.*
Cran-Ber-RITA is packed with a sweet and tart flavor and has returned for the fall-winter season after a long hiatus and an outcry from fans to see it back on shelves. Cran-Ber-RITA is available in 8 FL OZ, 12 OZ, 16 OZ, and 25 OZ cans in selected retailers nationwide for a limited time.
