I've gotta say it... I really want a golden ticket! Just like Charlie when he walked ever so dejectedly into the candy shop to collect a consoling bar of chocolate realizing he could never win as the last ticket had been found...
While I personally feel a tour of a tea facility would be almost equally as exciting... there's no way I would turn down $1500 just for buying tea I like anyway!
This promotion is exciting and I sincerely recommend taking part. Unlike Wonka Bars, tea is pretty much universally healthy for you... So even if you don't win the cash prize... you still get some good tea!
