Halloween is my favorite time of the year. Who can resist popcorn balls, cider and delicious, spooky desserts ? If you're a candy freak like me, you've probably made creative candy set-ups for Halloween parties (and then sampled them for "quality control") Now you can put that creativity to use and win an awesome prize, too! Allison Meets World is having a Blockbuster Monster contest. Create an edible Blockbuster monster out of candy and popcorn available in Blockbuster stores. Then share a photo of it on Allison Meets World. The winner will receive a $25 Blockbuster gift card. Now get to the kitchen and work some magic, my culinary goblins : )
Here are the rules:
- One entry per person, per household, per email address
- One prize per person, per household, per email address
- The prize must be accepted as awarded. No substitutions will be made.
- Entries will be accepted from Monday, October 26, 2009 at 3:30 PM, Eastern Standard Time to Monday, November 2, 2009 at 11:59 PM, Eastern Standard Time. Three winners will be announced on Tuesday, November 3, 2009.
- The winner will be the most creative Blockbuster Monster, as determined by Allison Meets World.
- How do you enter the contest ? Post a photo of your Blockbuster Monster in this thread. Partial, incomplete, obscene or offensive entries will be disqualified.
- The winner will receive their Blockbuster $25 gift card via US mail. So I must be able to contact you. Make sure to leave your blog address on your contest entry. Or email me at AllisonMeetsWorld(at)yahoo.com after you post your photo entry and let me know which entry was your's.
- If Allison Meets World determines there is any suspected or actual tampering with the photo contest, AMW reserves the right to void the tampered entries.
- "What kind of monster should I make ?"
The sky is the limit. You could make a trick-or-treating monster, a pumpkin
monster -- let your imagination and your sweet tooth be your guide : )
