Just before Christmas, my fiance decided to splurge a bit and get an Xbox 360 with Kinect. Before you think we are painfully out of the loop as far as gaming goes, you must understand that we had been a PlayStation 3-only household for the past several years; that is, until I started playing it not just more than my fiance, but so much that he barely had time to play it himself. Rather than get a second PlayStation 3 (what a colossal waste of money that could turn into!) we decided to bring a second type of video game console into our lives.
After a few months of having both a PlayStation 3 and an Xbox 360, I can confidently say that I am still a PS3 girl; it’s just the kind of gamer I am. However, the Xbox 360 brought something into our lives that our other console just can’t; and that is the Kinect, and with it, the line of Dance Central games.
On our combined quest to live a little healthier and be more active (a challenge when you work from home in front of a computer), my fiance and I have spent hours at a time–really!–trying to keep up with the very well choreographed cartoons dance their hearts out in Dance Central. The games are a lot of fun, and what I love most about them is that they capture–and keep–the attention of those who know that they should be more active but who cannot seem to gather the motivation to actually exercise. Treadmills, elliptical trainers, and weights? No way. Dancing to songs that quickly become ear worms that you have heard of the radio 500 times? Yes. All the time. Just yes. This surprised me because I really wasn’t anticipating liking them, but I do. I really do.
In an effort to encourage more people to get up on their feet and dance, Lipton has teamed up with Dance Central 3 (only available on Kinect for Xbox 360) for the Game On sweepstakes.
Running from now until April 30th, every time you buy specially marked bottles of ready-to-drink Lipton Iced Tea that feature a unique promotional code, you can visit GameOnPromo.com to see if you have won instant prizes. Additionally, you will automatically be entered for a chance to win one of four ultimate room makeovers, which may include:

Instant prizes are also up for grabs, including, Xbox 360 Gaming Bundles, Xbox 360 Console with Kinect, Xbox 360 Live 1600 points, Dance Central 3 games, and more.
Just in time for this exciting sweepstakes, Lipton has recently released two new flavors of iced tea to join the ranks of their refreshing favorites–and I was able to give them a try!
The new Lipton Diet Green Tea Honey Ginseng tastes sweet, clean, and is totally refreshing and sure to keep you hydrated throughout those long dance parties. Surprisingly, it has 0 calories, which were the magic words for my fiance and I, as we have been seriously counting calories as we continue to try to live a little healthier, as I mentioned before.
The other new flavor to join the Lipton ranks is Half & Half. At 100 calories, Half & Half, made up of half lemonade and half iced tea, is so delicious! I’m happy to see Lipton getting in on the Half & Half craze, as I have been drinking (and loving!) it for quite some time now. Only one other brand has really capitalized on it, as far as I have seen, and it’s great to have another Half & Half option.
Both of these new flavors are sure to please, excite, and hydrate fans of the Lipton brand. I’m pretty impressed with them myself.
Don’t forget, every time you try these new Lipton Iced Tea flavors (or any of your favorite flavors with specially marked packaging) visit GameOnPromo.com to enter to win instant prizes and one of the four grand prizes in the Game On sweepstakes, running now until April 30th!
I received samples of new Lipton Iced Tea flavors for review. No other compensation was received, and opinions are my own.
