***This Giveaway is now over.***
So, I was minding my own business the other day when I got an email from the lovely folks at Oh! Nuts. That's how they write it: Oh! Nuts. I picture a person opening a large and mysterious box. They finally cut through all of the tape and What Not, and there, nestled in fun bubble wrap, They are. Ad the person says, "Oh! Nuts--How exciting!" I've not asked them if that's how they came up with their name, but it seems a Reasonable Scenario.
Anyway, Sam from Oh! Nuts contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in giving away a $25 Oh! Nuts gift card to one lucky reader. As a bonus, I'd get one, too. After pondering for about 1.4 seconds, I said, "Sure!" And so here we are.
Now, the Oh! Nuts folks and I go way back. They sent me fun nuts to play with back in March 2009, and since then, The Beloved has been buying his dried nuts and fruits for his Famous Fruit Cake from Sam, et al.
So, here are the rules that were given Unto Me by Sam:
1. Go to the Oh Nuts Hanukkah gifts or Christmas gift baskets page. One or the other, please--not both! Choose your favorite Hanukkah or Christmas Gift and leave a comment over here on this post with the name and url of the gift you like the most.
I will pick a random winner on December 6 and then Sam, et al will email the winner a $25 gift certificate.
Here are two other ways to enter, too!
1. Go to the Oh Nuts facebook page and post on the wall the url and name of your favorite Hanukkah Gift OR Christmas Gift. Please also write "I am here via Pastry Methods and Techniques." (You don't have to word it that way--just mention my blog, please:)
2. Please follow @ohnuts on twitter and Tweet "Win a free Hanukkah Gift from http://bit.ly/6nIsCi Follow @ohnuts & Retweet to enter." or "Win a free Christmas Gift from http://bit.ly/dUpizt Follow @ohnuts & Retweet to enter."
And those are the rules. Easy, peasy, huh? I think the Oh! Nuts folks make wonderful products. Their customer service is excellent, and they ship promptly. So, if you haven't run into them, go check them out. And, if you already know them, a $25 gift certificate is a really good way to go get some more goodies!
Thanks, guys, and have a wonderful day!
UPDATE: December 6, 2010
