CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For millions of Americans, summertime heartburn can be spelled in many different ways. From spicy barbeque to citrus fruits and the fried food found on beach boardwalks, the season's favorite foods can lead to the discomfort of heartburn and acid indigestion instead of fun in the sun. This summer, we herald how to spell relief with R-O-L-A-I-D-S ® by challenging Americans to put their spelling expertise to the test. The first-ever Rolaids "Eat Your Words" Spelling Bee challenge will be taking place at food festivals across the country, and online now on the Rolaids Facebook page, www.facebook.com/rolaids.

The Rolaids "Eat Your Words" Spelling Bee will travel to top summer food festivals affiliated with the national Big Bite Tour, including Taste of Cincinnati, Safeway BBQ Battle in Washington, D.C., Ribfest in Naperville, IL, and the Music City Festival and BBQ Championship in Nashville.
