Chiquita Welcomes the Fall Season with a Fruitful Costume Challenge Giveaway and Halloween Recipes

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Halloween is right around the corner, which means it’s time to enjoy sweet treats and dress up in fun costumes! This year, Chiquita is calling on its fans to share their Halloween costumes on social media for the chance to be featured on the brand’s official Instagram account. Chiquita will then re-share the costumes and urge fans to vote for the most a-peeling costume. On Halloween day, the fan submissions with the most votes will win their very own Chiquita Banana costume to use next year. To be in the running of the Chiquita costume challenge, fans are encouraged to share a photo on their Instagram account, dressed as Miss Chiquita or Chiquita Banana and tag @chiquitabanana.
