Ragu Long Day of Childhood Ragu Long Day of Childhood Amex Gift Card Giveaway

This giveaway is closed. The winner is LAMusing who commented, “grade school where I spent the entire day trying to keep my tights from rolling down around my knees. I was embarrassed and exhausted by th end of the day LOL.”

Ragu is a favorite with so many busy families because it is easy to whip up a sit down pasta dinner and make even a long, hard day as a kid seem special.

Ragu wants to hear from you and your Long Day of Childhood stories; check them out on Facebook and start sharing. Their newest campaign slogan is, “A long day of childhood calls for America’s favorite pasta sauce.” Of course as a kid those embarrassing moments that seem so mortifyingly end of the world epic while they are happening turn into hilarious “do you remember the time” fodder years later.

One long day of childhood of mine in particular stands out for me. I remember being a pom pom girl in 5th grade and falling in front of the ENTIRE school during a pep rally routine. How embarrassing!




And we won’t even talk about the sadistic 7th grade P.E. teacher I had who made us choreograph aerobic dance routines to perform in the gym in front of the school.


Here’s just one of the hilarious Ragu ads created for this campaign (poor kid!)

Want to win a $25 Amex gift card and two coupons good for free Ragu products? Simply leave a comment below sharing one of your own “long day of childhood” stories from your own youth (or a story from one of your own kids.)

I’ll select a winner from all eligible comments using Random.org; giveaway closes at midnight CST Thursday, October 25. Giveaway is open to U.S. residents, ages 18 and up.

    My daughter tripped off the bus in front of the older boys. She got in the car and was crying out, “The big kids saw! The big kids saw!” when she tripped again. And all I could do was laugh! Long kid day and bad mommy moment!
