Hey everyone – it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for!
If you remember, a few weeks we announced our Vibram 5 Fingers contest. I filled a big bowl with whole load of chocolates – everything from M&M’s to Twix bars to Snickers and a whole lot more – and asked all of you to guess how many calories were in the bowl.
The 3 Angry Trainer Fitness fans who guessed closest to the total calorie count would win an Angry Trainer / Vibram’s gift certificate redeemable for a pair of my favorite footwear. In case you don’t know about Vibrams – and how much I love them – check out my original posting on why I’m such a fan of Five Fingers footwear! They’re definitely a prize worth winning.
We had over 200 entries and some of you came close, real close, to guessing the exact calorie total. As a reminder – here’s the pic of all that candy.
And here’s what was in the bowl and the total calorie count:
M&M x 3 630
Peanut Bar 240
Mounds x 2 460
Milky Way 220
York Peppermint 140
M&M Holiday 250
Almond Joy 220
5th Ave 260
Baby Ruth 280
Reese’s PB Cup Large 600
Reese’s Pieces x 2 = 420
Hershey’s Drops 290
Heath Bar 110
Gold Coins x 2 = 300
So the total calorie count is – drum roll please – 6,140 calories!
And the winners are…
Barry – 6130 calories
Vinh N - 6129 calories
Debbie – 6115 calories
Congratulations you three! I’m super impressed with how close you all came.
My ATF team will drop you a line over the next couple of days, so we can mail your Vibram’s gift certificates! And for all of you that asked me – the candy found a good home. You didn’t actually think I would eat that stuff did you?
Don’t worry if you didn’t win this time around though. We have ANOTHER holiday contest launching next week – with 10 CHANCES to win – so stay tuned.
