18 Feb2008

There were nearly 280 readers who left a comment and hoped to win a bottle of Marketman’s mangosteen jam. I am flattered by your interest so I decided to give away 4 bottles of jam, the last of the 2007 vintage, for a roughly 1 in 70 chance of winning… The odds were far better than the Lotto, and you didn’t even have to buy a ticket! Winners need to email me that they accept the bottle of jam, and I will send details of how to pick it up from a Mega Mall location next week. Congratulations to the 4 winners, and better luck next time to everyone else who joined! So here are the names of the lucky 4…

1. eustressor from Mandaluyong City
2. Eric C from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
3. corrine from Paranaque City
4. Adam from Manila

I have your email addresses to confirm that you are indeed you, in case anyone tries to claim your prize…heehee. I hope you enjoy the jam! Thanks again to all for participating!

    Congrats to the winners! I am one of the few lucky ones who has had a taste of MM’s Mangosteen jam. I do not put it on anything but just enjoy it a seed at a time savoring that mangosteen flavor with closed eyes. Love, love, love the ones with the nutty seed. MM’s jam is more of a preserve than a jam, virtually all whole seed segments with hardly any syrup. Yummy!!!!
