We got 300+ entries for our oatmeal giveaway! I wish we could give each and every one of you a prize pack. Before I announce the winners, who were chosen at random and not for their poetry, I wanted to say that I am so impressed with everyone’s haiku writing skills! We got a lot of great ones, but here are a few of our favorites:
with brown sugar and butter
nothing is better
Coffee excites some people,
But I know what’s good:
Oats, at sunrise, in my bowl.
From Kristen (This one cracked us up and deserves an honorable mention- sorry if it offends those with a more refined sense of humor):
Oatmeal is the bomb
I slow-cook it in my thong
sex and food ain’t wrong
Morning light peeks through
young sleepyheads stumble in
oatmeal in the air
Read the comments for more great oatmeal haikus.These are just a small sampling of the amazing poetry submitted by you guys!
And now, without further ado, here are our winners: Please note that after one winner was selected, I withdrew their names from the list, hence the number gets smaller.
Congrats to these three winners! We’ll be in touch to get shipping information. Thank you to everyone who participated. It is so inspiring to read what makes oatmeal one of your favorite things.
If you didn’t win, don’t worry, we have a lot of great giveaways in store for the next few months. We’ve got some new products, some great books and even a fabulous kitchen appliance (actually, three of them!) to share- so keep reading and let me know if there is anything that you think we could do to make this blog better.
