The quiz not only tests your knowledge about calcium and vitamin D, but also offers a fun chance to win a $25 Visa(R) gift card to help with groceries or other essentials during these challenging economic times. Players can also invite up to five friends to play each day, netting up to five more entries into the grand prize sweepstakes.

One winner will be randomly drawn at the conclusion of the sweepstakes on or about June 26, 2009 to win a family vacation for five to Yellowstone National Park.* The vacation package, valued at $8,000, includes accommodations for five nights and six days, activities in and around Yellowstone National Park, airfare, car rental and meals. The winning family will have one year to redeem the prize and arrange the vacation package through AllTrips, a Jackson, Wyoming-based travel company specializing in National Park excursions and Rocky Mountain ski and summer vacations. Depending on the season, the winning family can select from an endless variety of activities for every age and interest. These include year-round guided tours of Yellowstone, to skiing and snowmobiling in the winter to horseback riding and white water rafting in the summer.

In addition to the interactive nutrition quiz and sweepstakes rules, visitors to www.CountryCrock.com will find recipe ideas, nutrition information and tips for simple ways to get more calcium and vitamin D into the diet. Each serving (equivalent to one tablespoon) of Country Crock(R) Calcium plus Vitamin D provides 100 mg of calcium, which is 10% of the Daily Value (DV) for calcium, and 80 IU of vitamin D, which is 20% of the DV for vitamin D.
