Surprise!!! It's A Mountain Of Wheat Thins!!! (Part One)

Some of you may remember a while back that Wheat Thins had a special challenge for everyone. They offered protection insurance for the theft of boxes of Wheat Thins. It was a fun and crazy promotion. I loved it!

Part of the promotion was a super big challenge, retweeting!! In fact you may remember me asking all of you to help me retweet a message to earn some free boxes of Wheat Thins. A lot of boxes in fact, 100 to be exact was what they were offering.

I gave it a gallant try and actually did get a large number of retweets, but alas not the number I needed. I had planned on donating the boxes I earned to a local food bank, so when I didn't reach the number I was disappointed. Something like Wheat Thins is not a food that people often find at food banks, so I had hoped to be able to provide them.

I sent a short tweet to Wheat Thins telling them I wasn't going to make the challenge goal and thanking them for even giving me a chance! (link to tweet here). This is how they responded to me:
Hey Lois, Thanks so much for offering to donate. We're just going to give them to you. Click here:********* -@wheatthins
I was shocked and delighted that they were going to be so generous!! Well today when I got home I walked in the door to see this pile of boxes waiting for me
Here is what was inside one of them. There were 4 boxes in total.
And this is all 100 boxes!!!

I can hardly wait to deliver the boxes to the food bank. I will be calling them in the morning to find out when I can stop by. I'll be sure to take some photos to share with you! 

Thank you to everyone who did try to help me get the required number of retweets! I really appreciate your help. But thanks, BIG thanks go to Wheat Thins for being so generous and sending the boxes for me to share!! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it and am thrilled to spread their generosity!!

Wheat Thins Rock!!
