The next time some allegedly rich allegedly yuppie-types* say something like, “…San Franciscans are supposedly ["supposedly?" what?] going elsewhere such as Colma and Serramonte for their department store fix….,” you can just point to the case of San Francisco resident Eve E. Why? Well, she just made a surprising discovery after making a run for the border to do a little shopping at one of the busiest tar-GHEY stores in the world.
Per NESTLE USA:
“The first lucky winner, Eva E. of San Francisco, presented her shiny Golden Ticket to WONKA for official verification, and it has been verified as the first genuine WONKA Golden Ticket! WONKA’s Golden Ticket delivers the Grand Prize of a lifetime: a trip around the world for the winner and three guests. The prize is worth up to $40,000.”
(You can actually go out and buy a WONKA bar? Did not know that, no sir.)
What it’s like to discover the Golden Ticket:
Charlie Bucket was lucky to have a Target near where he was living…
*Is that a slur or an attack? “Rich, Young, Urban, and Professional” – I don’t think so…
All the deets:
Extra! Extra! First Two WONKA Golden Tickets Found!

GLENDALE, Calif., July 27 — The hunt for WONKA’s legendary Golden Tickets is now more intense than ever.

Today, WONKA announced that two of 10 Golden Tickets have been found.

The second winner, Jason C. of Southaven, Miss., had his Golden Ticket verified not long after Eva.
“We’re thrilled for Eva and Jason, and can’t wait to hear more about the adventures they have planned for their globetrotting journeys,” said Patricia Bowles, spokesperson, Nestle Confections & Snacks. “This serves as a good reminder that only eight WONKA Golden Tickets remain to be found. We look forward to celebrating as more Ticket holders come forward.”
Eva found her Golden Ticket in a WONKA Exceptionals Chocolate Waterfall Bar purchased at a Target® store in Colma, Calif. Jason found his in a WONKA Exceptionals Domed Dark Chocolate Bar at his local Walmart® store in Southaven, Miss. The WONKA Chocolate Waterfall Bar and Domed Dark Chocolate Bar are two-of-three varieties of new WONKA Exceptionals chocolates (the third is the Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Bar). The collection of delicious chocolate can be purchased at retailers nationwide.
As for the first two Grand Prize winners, where will they go? What do they plan to do, and who will they take with them? One thing is certain: they will only be limited by their imaginations!
