Out of thousands of entries, one Pennsylvania father wins an at-home play-cation, straight of out of a Western, featuring a 'cheese wheel' mechanical bull, gaming station, and more

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., June 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The ultimate Western dude ranch vacation … just a short gallop outside your home? Thanks to Cheez-It® Grooves®, that quick trip out West is easy for one lucky family.

Complete with 100% real cheese, bold flavor and crunchy ridges, Cheez-It Grooves takes your taste buds on a wild ride and provides the perfect break and reset you crave.  While many families had to forego their annual spring break this year, Cheez-It Grooves delivered one lucky family a mind-blowing break from everyday life, no travel required. The special delivery? A "Zesty Dude Ranch Spring Break-In-A-Box" delivered and setup right on their front lawn, along with a full year's supply of Cheez-It Grooves.

Jonathan Zerbini, Pennsylvania, and his five sons won all the benefits of a rip-roarin' Western vacation including a mechanical "cheese wheel" bull ride, personalized DJ set, gaming station, "oil drum" soaking tub and more. Inspired by the bold flavor of Cheez-It Grooves Zesty Cheddar Ranch, the Zerbini family experienced this mind-blowing, multi-sensory dude ranch experience without leaving their home.

"We all know that unusual circumstances prevented many people from getting the most out of their break from school or work this spring.  We wanted to help, so we brought the Cheez-It Grooves experience to life with a once-in-a-lifetime spring break experience – ready to be dropped off right on one fan's front lawn," said Jeff Delonis, Senior Director of Marketing for Cheez-It.  "Still made with 100% real cheese like all our snacks, Cheez-It Grooves brings a mind-crunching jolt to any break time and can take your taste buds on a wild ride at any time of the year."

In March, fans took to Twitter for a chance to win one of three experiences inspired by Cheez-It Grooves flavors – Sharp White Cheddar, Zesty Cheddar Ranch, and the newest flavor creation, Scorchin' Cheddar. Out of nearly 10,000 entries, the Zerbini family was awarded the epic day.

"Cheez-It has been a pantry staple in my family for years, so we were thrilled to learn a family favorite was offering the opportunity to enjoy the vacation we were missing this year," said Zerbini. "Thanks to Cheez-It Grooves, my family enjoyed an unforgettable Western vacation, right in our front yard. Paired with lots of Grooves Zesty Cheddar Ranch, it was the perfect – not to mention delicious – break from the everyday."
