Collect ‘Em All: 23 Local Mexican Food Trading Cards by Visit Tucson

Gotta eat 'em all!

Visit Tucson launched the first in its series of Mexican food trading cards for The Best 23 Miles of Mexican Food. Each pack includes eight trading cards, one checklist, and a stick of gum. 25 different cards are available in this batch.

Tucson Foodie had the honor of contributing photos to the project, so you may recognize some of them.

Trading card packs — at $5 a pack — can be purchased at Why I Love Where I Live at the MSA Annex at 267 S. Avenida del Convento, Building 2.

Additionally, Visit Tucson will have giveaways on their social channels such as @visittucson on Instagram. Tucson Foodie is planning on giveaways too, so follow @tucsonfoodie on Instagram if you don’t already.
