This past weekend Boston Pizza enlisted the help of the largest parent testing community, Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA), to launch its new Kids Program complete with new menu items and fun for the whole family to enjoy.
Ten bloggers and their families gathered at Toronto’s Yonge and Sheppard location to try out the latest food creations, engage with the new activity packs and even got to meet a special guest—Lionel the Mascot!
Among the tasty dishes were the BP Mini Cheeseburgers, Pizza Pinwheels and the S’mores Sundae—just to name a few. As part of the new program, the kids each received an activity pack in a small pizza box filled with memory cards, checker board and pieces, crayons and an activity sheet to keep them entertained.
Parents especially enjoyed that their kids were keeping busy as they sampled from the main menu with 26 new additions to choose from.
While the food and activity packs were a huge hit, the real show stopper was a surprise meal time visit from Lionel. The kids were delighted to say hello and there was no shortage of flashes from proud parents as their kids gladly posed with him for some pictures.
The attendees were also busy tweeting up a storm and chatting about their favourite moments of the lunch time event.
Here are just a few of the great things they had to say:
Overall, the event was a huge success and a great way to launch the new Kids Program and celebrate family time at Boston Pizza.
