Before I get into today’s post, I just want to thank everybody for the great responses and lovely messages on Monday’s post. I felt the love in my inbox and social media. Now onto some sweet news (excuse the pun) – I have some fab news to spread right from the Oreo HQ that I believe everyone should know about. So the lovely people over at Oreo sent over some yumminess so that I can spread the word on their new #OreoDunk campaign.
If we all recall way back when Oreo became a household name, “first you twist it, then you lick it, then you dunk it.” – used to be the best thing under the sun and it used to be a habitual ritual with your glass of milk. Now Oreo is challenging you darlings to put your own creative spin on how you dunk your Oreo in a glass of milk. Now if you didn’t need some more inspiration to pop a box (or a few) of Oreos in your shopping cart, South Africans also stand in line to win a trip overseas.One SA Oreo enthusiast can stand a chance to win a trip for two worth R 150 000 where they will have the opportunity to meet either Christina Aguilera in Los Angeles or Neymar da Silva Santos Junior in Barcelona. You may have seen Christina and Neymar do the dunk challenge on tv/social media to give you some innovative ideas on how they do the dunk challenge.
To make things even cooler, Google has also taken up the Oreo Dunk Challenge in which you can virtually launch an Oreo biscuit into space and all the way back with your mobile phone. How you ask? When visiting the microsite – users can scan an actual biscuit to unlock a digital version thereof. Once the biscuit has been scanned, you then swing your phone to launch the cookie into the stratosphere, starting from your actual location in Google Earth then descending and dunking into a glass of milk in a location across the world via Google Street View.I know by now that you’re just dying for info on how to enter the international comp. To qualify for the giveaway, all you have to do is purchase any two Oreo Original, Oreo Chocolate Crème or Oreo Golden and then dial *120*7226# and follow the voice prompts. You’re going to have to enter the last four digits of your barcodes. This promotion will be running until the 31st of May so you still have plenty of time to enter.
