#Contest: Share Your Love For Mom To Win A #BoxOfNissans

Nissan_box_of_chocolates_01We know there are lots of different reasons why everyone loves their Mom. I might be 50 years old, but she still buys a lot of my clothes (because she loves to shop!). And when I was younger, she always used to slip me money for gas.

What about you? In honor of the approaching Mother's Day celebration on May 8, Nissan is looking for awesome-mom stories from its fans. If you've got a great story you want to share about your mom via social media, Nissan wants to hear from you. And to sweeten the story, 50 fans will win their mom a limited-edition #BoxOfNissans chocolates, so unique they cannot be purchased in any store.

"Every year we see a surge of social-media love notes to honor a special woman on Mother's Day, and Nissan is helping its fans make this year's day even more special," said Jeremy Tucker, Nissan, vice president, Marketing Communications and Media. "Moms have helped many of us navigate through childhood, so we created a way for our passionate and driven fans to give something truly unique and special to their moms."

#Box-of-NissansEach box contains five white-chocolate GT-Rs (for the high-octane racing mom), five milk-chocolate Rogues (for the sweet and ready-for-adventure mom), and five dark-chocolate Maximas (for the bold mom who got you to soccer on time and was sure to enjoy the drive). I received a sample box in the mail on Thursday, and have already eaten one of each; trust me, they're yummy -- plus the package is so pretty, even unwrapping it is part of the treat.

As for driving with my mom, I can't say I do much of that anymore: The last time I drove with her, she was constantly reminding me to use my blinkers, telling me I was driving too fast, and didn't like that I left my purse on the car floor. (Not that she was being a paranoid passenger... It's true: I seldom use my blinkers, and I often do speed. And where else am I supposed to put my purse?) These days, whenever we go somewhere, my Step-Dad does the driving and I sit in the back seat. Life's just simpler that way.

Cathey_Meade-1982_Datsun_280zx-800wiOh! And if you didn't know it, Cathey Meade, the mother of AskPatty CEO Jody DeVere, also owned a high-performance Nissan model, though hers was actually a Datsun: A 1982 280ZX that she kept for more than 25 years.  You can read her story about her 25-year love affair with her car here at AskPatty.

Is your mom a curve-finding, high-RPM-hounding, open-road-loving woman? Then share your love for her on Twitter with the hashtags #BoxOfNissans and #Contest. On Facebook and Instagram, submit your story by commenting on the activation posts.

Don't wait: the entry period ends 5/8/16 at 11:59:59 p.m. ET. (Be sure to read the official rules here.) Winners will be notified on or around May 13, 2016.
