Get ready for an extra sweet Valentine’s Day with Vv Magazine and ROLO’s #LastROLO contest…
The great philosopher Meat Loaf once said, “I would do anything for love, but I won’t do that.” Although Meat Loaf’s kept us guessing for well over two decades about what exactly it is he won’t do, perhaps the point is that we’re not supposed to know his terms and conditions when it comes to romance. What Meat Loaf wouldn’t do for love doesn’t matter — the song invites you to wonder what you wouldn’t do. Deep.
It’s hard enough to realize you’re not the considerate lover you want to be when you’re down to your last ROLO, and your partner’s outstretched hand is awaiting your generosity.
There’s a fine line between compromise and capitulation, and your chocolate fixes might just be your Meat Loaf breaking point when it comes to what you won’t do for love — especially now that ROLO has an even creamier caramel filling just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Want to win a ROLO gift pack? We are giving away a special ROLO prize this week, but also testing your love skills. Tell us who you love enough to share your last ROLO with — you can let us know in the comments section below for your first entry, and then tweet your answer to @ViewTheVibe using the hashtag #LastROLO for a second entry. You must be 19 years of age or over in order to enter. Got some free time on your hands? Fill out the optional quiz below to find out what your #LastROLO personality type is!
Contest winners will win a ROLO gift pack featuring items from the Nestle Valentine’s Day portfolio and, of course, ROLOs galore — meaning you won’t actually have to find out how you’d divide the #LastROLO.
Winner will be announced February 13, 2015!
For more love month fun, get to know where you draw the line when it comes to romance by taking our Love Quiz:
Your significant other’s job has been suddenly transferred to Toledo, Ohio for an undetermined amount of time. Do you:
a) Quit your job and go. It’ll be an adventure! Love is all we need.
b) Discuss the possibility of a long-distance plan but insist on a pre-determined end date.
c) Break up. Long distance isn’t your thing, nor is Toledo.
Your ex, aka the one that got away, messages you on Facebook while visiting your city and suggests a get-together. You:
a) Say you’re not available and drop hints that you’re in a committed relationship.
b) Agree to lunch. An innocent flirtatious catch-up in public is harmless.
c) Ask for the hotel room number.
Your partner’s family is unbearable, and you’ve always got to brace yourself for the discomfort even over Skype. Your beau wants you to come to an important family reunion for a long weekend from hell. You:
a) Suck it up and go. Sleeping in your partner’s childhood single bed will be hilarious.
b) Agree to go as long as you stay in a hotel and have adequate family time-outs.
c) Lie about your workload and save the vacation days for something better.
You see something in a store window that reminds you of a quirky interest of your beau. You:
a) Go in and get it immediately. Just-because gifts are the best.
b) Quickly check the price. Your thoughtful but practical.
c) Keep going. It’s not exactly a birthday or holiday, and you need new shoes anyway.
Your beau is having a temper tantrum after a bad day at work. You first reaction is to:
a) Offer a shoulder to cry on, draw a bubble bath, and make a home-cooked meal.
b) Listen attentively but calmly and sweetly let your partner know when the cap on the rant is up.
c) Leave. You may as well see your friends tonight if Debbie Downer’s terrorizing your home.
You’ve been kickin’ it on the couch eating chocolate and watching a Dr. Who. Your loving beau curls up beside you and reaches a hand out for a ROLO. But you’ve only got one left. Seriously? How’d that happen? Do you:
a) Give the last ROLO to your love. Going to the store to get more is what the “Pause” button is for.
b) Quickly throw the last ROLO in your mouth before acting distracted and confused and saying, “Pardon?”
c) Say, “No way. Get your own.” Obviously.
Quiz results are below – but don’t forget to enter our #lastROLO contest for a chance to win so much Nestle chocolate, you’ll have plenty to share with your other half – unless you really don’t want to of course.
Mostly “a” answers: You’re in the honeymoon phase. Enjoy but be forewarned: passion can fade but resentment tends to grow when left to marinate.
Mostly “b” answers: You know what you want from life and from love and where to set your limits so you don’t have to lose out on one for the other. You’re practical and while you worry you’re jaded at times, you’re still a hopeless romantic at heart… for the right person… at the right time… right.
Mostly “c” answers: Are you sure you’re in a relationship?
