Popcorn and a Movie Anyone? – A Contest!

76 Comments 6300 views

I am so excited to announce my very first Weight Watchen Contest giveaway!  I can’t believe it!

Here’s the deal…

Orville Redenbacher Natural line of popcornOrville Redenbacher wants to spread the word about their new Natural line of popcorn. It has zero artificial colors, flavors or preservatives…it tastes great naturally! And it comes in 3 flavors: Simply Salted, Buttery Garlic and Buttery Salt & Cracked Pepper (and yes there is a low fat version!)

To help them spread the word they are offering a new box (6 bags) of popcorn to the winner each month for a year (flavor of your choice) AND Orville will fit the bill for a 1-year 2-movies-at-a-time Netflix subscription! I don’t know about you but I can’t live without popcorn OR movies.  So this is SO AWESOME!

There is only one catch, you have to have a blog to enter. Each blogger who mentions the contest in a post by Jan 11, links back to me here (http://weightwatchen.com) and to Orville (http://orville.com) gets assigned a number and entry in the contest.  I will then select a number at random (the toddler will pick it out of a hat :~P) and announce the winner on January 11.
How exciting is this?!

Let me know if you have any questions and leave a comment when you post the link to make sure I see it.  This will guarantee your entry!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

There are 76 comments so far.

    Roni,
    That sounds like so much fun!
    So if I post a gazillon times, do I get a gazillon entries? Do you have a container big enough to hold all those entries?

    I’m in! And I hold off on posting that gazillon until I get the word on the multiple entries.

    Ahhhh the good old multiple entries question, DARN I knew I missed something!

    No, sorry, just one entry per person, simple because I do NOT have a container that big to hold all those entries.

    Although it would be a cute picture of the toddler surrounded by a gazillion little papers in a really, really big box! ;~P

    Can anyone find a place that is selling this popcorn yet? Amazon doesn’t have the Natural selection (just the organic). I’m also (of course) looking for the nutritional information, which Orville Redenbacher’s parent company doesn’t seem to have up yet (but maybe if its in the stores already someone else does?)I REALLY want to try that black pepper one!

    Cheers!

    Happy New Year!

We just ran out of popcorn so I’ll give this a try. My husband can eat 2 bags a day if they’re around, so it’s in my best interest to get some natural stuff.
