The Winner of the Purdy's Easter Prize Pack is...


Congratulations Melissa! =D Please email me at with your mailing address. I will forward your info to Purdy's Chocolates (they will be mailing you the prize). Congrats again and I hope you will enjoy all the delicious Purdy's Chocolates for Easter!

I also want to say a big THANKS to the 166 contestants who participated in the contest! 

To ensure my followers that I am 100% honest when I say the winner is picked RANDOMLY, I will always show you guys how I went about tracking each contest. Even though my contests in the future may not be exactly the same as this one, be rest assured that I will go through the same process with due diligence.

Here's a snapshot of the Excel spreadsheet where I tracked the #purdyseaster stream from day one of the contest. The tracking was done using chronological order, as in, #1 was the first person who entered right the contest. To enter, the person has to tweet "I want to win an Easter Prize Pack from @PurdysChocolate! #purdyseaster". Once the contest was over and everybody's entries were accounted for in my spreadsheet, I went to check if they actually followed me on Twitter (I also sent the below list of contestants to Purdy's Chocolates for them to look over).

After weeding out the people that did not follow both Purdy's Chocolates and I on Twitter, I was left with 150 contestants. I went to "True Random Number Generator" from to randomly pick a winner for me from 1 to 150.

Thanks for playing ^_^
