Chuao Winner!

Thanks to everyone who entered. It was, by far, my most popular giveaway yet with over 200 entries.

Here’s how the process went to pick a winner:

Export all entries from the system to an Excel spreadsheet.

Remove duplicate entries, verify that all remaining entries are unique to the best of my abilities.

Sort the list according to super-secret criteria.

Go to and get a random number and match it to the row of that number.

And the winner is .... Audrey Feather of Washington State!

She emailed me her address and the $50 worth of Chuao gift certificates will go in the mail right away.

If everyone enjoyed it, I’ll try to do more giveaways soon.

  2. I always enjoy the chance to win something!  (I rarely do, but it’s fun to throw your hat in anyway.)

    Congrats Audrey!

  5. Always up for winning stuff… speaking of which, I left a comment on your entry about the Lava Bar and the PR guy at the company emailed me!  Now I have some for me and my husband to try (once my diet allows) and see if it really is like a chocolate bar or chocolate syrup.
