Congrats!
So funny. Glad you checked that off your list. Now what are you wishing for? I don't know if I've ever had a prize on my "bucket" list. I've gotten some good ones over the years. Nowadays, I'll settle for ANY win.

I really don't know why this one was a focus for me. It just looked so tasty and I thought how many people are entering this each week. Apparently, a lot of people as it took so long to win.

I just checked and it looks like it was submitted in June of 2003 which is when I joined OLS (I lurked for a bit before joining). That is kind of odd that they coincided.

Wow, I see it was first submitted June, 2003! Been around a long time! I see the most recent winner is from Marietta, Ga--guess that's you!

Can't believe it took you that long!

Wow, they deliver very quickly. I chose cherry cheese and it is delicious! It is very moist, pretty dense and sweet so you don't need to eat a lot. I was kind of expecting it to be flakier, but love how moist it is. The cherries are tart which is what I expected. The cheese is mild compared to the cherries.

It was definitely worth the wait. Here are some pictures.

That is funny. I don't think I won that, but I did win a Goldfish one.

Very good question....hmm. I wanted to win a Galaxy S9 but never did so I bought one. Probably electronics items like Amazon echo dot or connected home items are next on my list.

It has been a while since I won a bigger electronics thing like an xbox or tv etc. Maybe one of those will come my way soon.

Good luck to all and I hope you win that item you really want!

It was fun to read the posts on this one. I have never heard of a Kringle either. Enjoy.

Wow. I gave up entering that one a few years ago. Hope you enjoy your win for all of us who gave up on that one!

Very tasty and worth it. They are sweet though so a little piece is fine. I froze half of mine so I can pull out a few pieces when I want them. The cheese was very mild so if you are looking for a big cheesecake taste it is not there. The cherries were tart and good. They have so many great flavors.

Sending winning vibes to those of you still on a quest for a Kringle.

..freezing, good idea! I think I may buy a few as gifts, good to know they are worth it. Think I just got 2 people checked off my list -Thank you for the feedback
Would you say the cherry/cheese one or the plain cherry one would be better? Although the Cinnamon roll one looks good, oh who am I kidding, I'm going to end up buying one for our household lol

Good Luck!
