Globally Inspired Burritos


Short ‘n Sweet

We’re working hard to “wrap” up our Sweet 16th birthday contest, and pick the winners...

(NON-SPOILER ALERT! Reading this blog post won’t give you any clue as to who the winners are... sorry... But we’ll be announcing the winners on 3/20/2013!)

We received 639 different words of wisdom. Some of them were cheesy, some cliche, some poetic (even rhyming!), and some serious and mature. All of them made us proud of our awesome and creative guests! But before we tell you our 16 favorites (we’ll do that next Wednesday, March 20th!), we want to show you 16 of the shortest ‘n sweetest pieces of advice you guys sent to us in honor of our Sweet 16th birthday. This wasn't a contest about brevity, but if it was... this would be our top 16!

1. Kiss someone!

2. Stay in School.

3. You're only in trouble if you get caught.

4. Keep your hands at 10 and 2 on your burrito.

5. A burrito without guac means you've surely run amok.

6. Remember that somewhere, deep inside, we all can fly.

7. Don't eat a buffalo burrito and drive. You might spill sauce.

8. Birthdays are nature's way of telling us to eat more cake. And burritos!

9. A bad attitude is like a flat tire. You can't go anywhere till you change it.

10. He who buys smoothie does not choke on burrito. (boloconese proverb)

11. Burrito Life Philosophy: If you try to stick too many things in, it will all overflow.

12. There's no ill that can't be cured with some fresh guacamole and a cold milkshake.

13. You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose.

14. Experiencing culture isn't just about where you go and who you meet, it's about what you eat.

15. We don't stop creating inspired burritos because we grow old. We grow old because we stop creating inspired burritos.

16. Speak softly and carry a big burrito, you will go far if you are never hungry... (adapted from the words of Theodore Roosevelt)

Don’t forget to check back for when we announce the WINNERS on Wednesday, March 20th! Who will win the trip across the world??

  2. cassidy says:

    thanks for the help, Macey! we’re having a tough time choosing the winners…!

  3. Paul Lashway says:

    Boloco – I stayed up past my bedtime for an announcement! Did you “fall asleep at the wheel”???

  4. Macey says:

    Just in case you’re looking for more help… :) …my husband is the author of #15 (and 3 other entries)

  5. cassidy says:

    ahh sorry Paul! our little burrito minds are being a bit indecisive… there’s so many good words of wisdom to choose from! Hopefully we’ll let you know today :)

  6. Anne says:

    I’m dying to know the results!! How will you announce them?

  7. cassidy says:

    Hey Anne! Sorry for the delay on the announcement! Soon, soon… We’ll be emailing the winners individually, and also emailing everyone announcing the winners! Stay tuned! :)

  8. EJD says:

    Boloco, I haven’t slept in a week. I ordered a regular w/guac today to induce food coma but nothing is working.

  9. Sarah says:


    We are waiting with baited BREATHHHH

  10. cassidy says:

    So sorry for the delay! If all goes as planned, we’ll be announcing the winners TODAY! Right here on this blog!

  11. cassidy says:

    aww can’t wait for the announcement?? Don’t worry, we’ll be announcing the winners SO SOON!

  12. Ben says:

    “So you’re telling me there’s a chance!”

  13. Patrick says:

    I’m checking my phone every 16 minutes!

  14. cassidy says:

    yes!! we will be announcing the winners soon…!

  15. Patrick says:

    Is this the announcement before the announcement? Congrats to whomever the winners might be :)

  16. Riley says:

    Peace, Love, and Burritos to all.

  17. cassidy says:

    good work! soon, soon, young jedi…

  18. Julie says:

    Not soon enough!!!

  19. Steve says:

    Bueller… Bueller…

  20. Jay says:

    The April Fools’ email I received early this morning stated that the winners will be announced today…it’s nearly 8pm, so I’m assuming that’s (once again) not factually correct. What gives?? We’ve all been waiting patiently for weeks now, and Boloco continually tells us “SOON!!”. Honestly, we would have been far more understanding if you had just set a deadline and assured us it would be wrapped up by then…even if it was May 15th. Your current approach comes off as disorganized, flighty and disingenous…which is not what we’ve come to expect from you these past sixteen years.

  21. cassidy says:

    We finally posted them on Monday night! Did you see the winners?

  22. cassidy says:

    Sorry, we didn’t post it until about midnight! Wanted to keep you all on your toes :)

  23. cassidy says:

    aww sorry! but they’re finally up now!
