It’s official. The folks at Wonka announced today that two of 10 golden tickets placed in Wonka Exceptionals chocolate bars have been found.
The two winners—Eva E. of San Francisco and Jason C. of Southaven, Miss.—will be jetting off on a trip around the world with three guests. Luckies.
According to Wonka, Eva found her golden ticket in a Wonka Exceptionals Chocolate Waterfall Bar purchased at a Target store in Colma, Calif. Jason found his in a Wonka Exceptionals Domed Dark Chocolate Bar at a Walmart in his hometown.
Wonder what the odds are of me finding a golden ticket if I pick up a Wonka Exceptionals Scrumdiddlyumptious Bar in Chicago?
In other news, the makers of M&M’s, Mars Chocolate North America, announced today that Sean “Diddy” Combs is throwing a party for Ms. Green, who was crowned America’s favorite M&M’s character. (An announcement about America’s love affair with the “I melt for no one” Ms. Green is going to be made this evening on Entertainment Tonight.)
Apparently, Ms. Green captured 23% of 3.4 million votes cast by fans at www.mms.com. She beat out Red, Yellow, Orange, and Blue. (I am a Mr. Yellow fan. How about you?)
The party with Diddy, which will be held in NYC in September, is part of Mars’ “Party Like Diddy Sweepstakes.”
The odds of scoring an invite to this soiree are probably slimmer than winning a golden ticket.
