I was recently contacted by Sam of Oh! Nuts, who asked if I'd like to sample some of their nuts and dried fruit products. I chose pinenuts, pistachios, and cashews, and dried cranberries.
I've always wanted pinenuts to make Italian pinenut cookies or even to top a Korean persimmon drink, but could never justify the expense for myself. So yay! Be prepared for some recipes.
Anyway, so since I got something, I decided you should get something too.
Oh! Nuts is partnering with Warner Bros. Entertainment to promote their upcoming movie “Life As We Know It," starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. They are hosting an online sweepstakes offering a chance to win a family trip for four to Hollywood, CA. For more information about the sweepstakes, check out the website at www.ohnuts.com/life/.
Oh! Nuts offered me two tickets to the movie's screening and a gift basket, but I'd rather give them away to one of you. The screening will take place some time next week before the movie opens on October 8, so do make sure you're available and live in, or near, the following cities:
New York City
The other half of this prize is a baby basket valued at $29.95 filled with Oh! Nuts nuts, candy, and other stuff.
To be eligible for this prize, you must leave a comment telling me if you live near one of the cities that will be screening the movie and which gift basket you'd like if you win. Leave your email address or some other method of contact.
Since the movie screenings are coming up soon, the deadline to leave a comment is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, September 26. I will pick a winner that evening and update this blog post.
You must check back and email me your name and which city you'll be attending the screening by 5 p.m. on Monday, September 27. If you don't contact me by then, I will pick another winner since I have to pass the names along to Sam by Tuesday.
There's a second prize with a second deadline.
If you'd like to also be eligible to win one pound of any of Oh! Nuts' colored candies and nuts, check out the choices available on the Oh! Nuts candy by color page and tell me in your comments which color and candy you'd like if you win. Please leave a link to the exact item you want to so there's no confusion.
Deadline to leave a comment for this prize is 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, September 29. I will draw the winner's name from the total pool of comments, so if you left a comment early on for the first prize of the movie screening tickets and gift basket, you'll still be eligible to win the colored candy during my second pick.
Sorry, this giveaway is only open to U.S. residents.
So to recap:
In your comment, tell me if you will be able to attend one of the movie screenings next week and which color gift basket you'd like.
Also, check out the Oh! Nuts candy by color page and tell me in your comment which color and candy you'd like if you win.
Deadline for the first prize is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, September 26 and deadline for the second prize is 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, September 29.
Only one comment per person please. Winners will be chosen using Random.org. Please email me at wanderingchopsticks (at) gmail (dot) com to claim your prize.
