I don’t even care how big of a nerd my sheer and utter excitement for the following news makes me… because the minute my friend (holllllerrr, Linds!) told me about this new contest, I was instantaneously stoked! And we’re not talking semi / half-way-there stoked. We’re talking full on, LA luvin’, surfboard floppin’, missing member of Laguna Beach stoked! (Haha, who remembers how many times that ‘cast’ said it?? Classic.)
Anyhoot… according to reports from USA Today, the Nestle-owned Wonka candy brand is bringing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to life and resurrecting real life ‘Golden Tickets!!!!’… Pause for effect… Can you even believs it!?!? Talk about the world’s biggest OMG evs! We all have the chance to frolic about with our grandpas singing, “We’ve got the golden ticket! (Ho!) We’ve got the golden tiiiiiiicket!”
Now, before you start to ask what any of my girlish excitement and Wonka bars have to do with adult weddings and dieting brides, I should probably inform you all of the prizes. Ten grand prize, Golden Ticket winners will really feel blessed when they (+3 of their nearest and dearest) receive a trip around the world, including $12,500 spending money!!! I mean, seriously, make the +3 a +1 and talk about the honeymoon of a lifetime… not to mention the story of a lifetime…
“Where did you go on your honeymoon?”
“Oh you know.” (shrugs soldiers) “Anywhere this bad boy… (whips out golden ticket from back pocket) could take me!”
“Which basically means a trip around the world… boo yeah!”
Yep, sounds like perfection. So, who cares if you have to gain a couple pounds in chocolate to gain the honeymoon of a lifetime?? In the end – as long as you win, that is – it would TOTALLY be worth it! Heck, even if you don’t win, you’re still eating chocolate; so, technically, it’s a win/win all around!
