For The Love Of Oreos Contest!

November 03, 2015


Quick story…

I get really excited about anything Pumpkin Spice as soon as October comes. When a friend of mine sent me a photo of a box of Pumpkin Spice Oreos bought in St-John’s, I went a little wild and started looking for them all over town. Because really, if St-John’s had them, why not Montreal!

So for about 2 weeks, whenever I would pass a Metro, IGA or Provigo, I would go in and look for them with no luck. After doing some online research though, I found out that IGA sold them on their online store! That’s when I got in touch with them on Twitter to find out where I could go get them in person.

So I went to the store again.. with no luck! Got back on Twitter to chat some more with IGAQC and IGA Louise Menard (who were both really awesome to help this Pumpkin Spice addict) and finally:

Yup, a bunch of boxes were waiting at the store’s customer service with my name <3 After all, I did get my happy ending and the cookies did not disappoint!

Now, on to the contest…

So with all that work, I think it’s only fair that I share one box with one lucky follower! So here’s how it’s going to go:

  • The contest begins Tuesday November 3rd, 2015 and ends Friday November 6th, 2015;
  • The winner will be contacted on Sunday November 7th 2015;
  • The winner must be able to meet me at a metro station around the Plateau area.
