Angry Trick answer?
The flavor is "Fruity Pebbles Cereal." I bet our answers of "Fruity Pebbles" without "Cereal" are losers.

I used that answer for 35-45/60 or so entries.

I also used the answer Orange Blossom for 10-15 entries. Additional answers I used were Fruit Loops, Grand Marnier, Triple Sec, Breakfast Cereal, Fruit Cake. Mom really pushed me to use Orange Blossom answer.

Didn't use Fruit Pebbles cereal, only Fruit Pebbles--hope thats legit

But, emails from the judging agency for the sweeps said that (1) the sponsor did not tell them (the judging agency) what the mystery flavor was, and (2) the prizes would be given out via random drawing regardless what flavor you put on your entry.

No the rules said it was a random drawing from all correct answers (or alternatively, people who did mail in requests would get entries that way). You guess wrong, tough luck. Thats NOT to say they don't have lenient way of enforcing the rules. Could accept several variations of the correct answer being placed into he drawing.

I understnd that that is the way you interpreted the rules. My comment above had nothing to do with the rules, which I found to be not very straightforward.

So, some of us emailed the judging agency to get clarification. They replied with the statement I reported above.

How will they actually award the prizes? I have no idea. I just reported what they said in a direct email from the judging agency.

What a let down
I was hoping for something different than what they have already done.

I guessed Tutti Fruity, Fruit Loops, gummy bear, cherry cordial, fruit cocktail, and rainbow.

Today I am thankful for..... (you fill in the rest)

What about all the extra entries that you could earn by submitting a photo of the Oreo's Mystery Package? Those entries don't have a specific flavor attached to them. I submitted an extra entry every day.

Thoughts???

I believe it also said in the rules any trademarked names would be disqualified.

"Always together; eternally apart": by day Isabeau becomes a hawk, by night Navarre becomes a wolf. Neither has any memory of their half-life in animal form; only at dusk and dawn of each day can they see each other in human form for one fleeting moment, but can never touch.

I do not think I used that flavor as all as an answer.
