Cool You know those contests you enter forever and wonder if you will ever win?
Well since 2003 I have been trying to win a Kringle....and I was finally chosen as a winner. I am so excited I don't even know what flavor to choose.

I don't normally post my wins, but I thought I would this time. My hope was to encourage those of you that have been trying to win something for a long time and may be getting discouraged. Keep at it, perseverance pays.

This is a small win, but I had set my mind on it and finally got it. Sending everyone winning vibes and hope you get that prize you have been wanting for a while.

Now...which one to choose.

It's a small win, but a tasty one. Congrats and for what it's worth my favorite flavor is raspberry.

I don't even know what a Kringle is ..

But any win you are trying for and finally get is satisfying, no matter the size!

Congratulations!
Congrats, that is awesome! I gave up a decade plus ago thinking I would win (I still enter though) and bought one. My favorite is almond!

Enjoy!

Congrats! I know what you mean about entering for a long time. I started entering that one in 2005 and won in 2013. I picked the raspberry which was really good. The icing does make them really sweet so a small piece goes a long way. Hope you enjoy whichever flavor you choose, I'm sure they are all good!

If you don't mind....just how many entries did you have for that before winning?

Congratulations on your win! I've been entering that sweep for years, and I keep hoping that I'll win some day.

Congrats! What perseverance! Seems like I entered forever and finally won...back in 2012.
I had to look back at my email. I chose the Maple Walnut. Really good.
Enjoy!
