Did an Oreo Cookie Stacking contest last weekend

Ah, I know it has been a while since I have posted on this blog (been busy lately, plus I do have several other blogs I manage as well).  I hosted an oreo cookie stacking contest at the Albertson in Snohomish, WA

I am not used to hosting contests, but it turned out pretty well.  Kids and other shoppers would come by my station and try and stack as many oreo cookies as they can within 30 seconds.  Some people had small stacks, while others had pretty huge ones (the tallest was about 12 inches).  Of course, some people were more interested in eating the cookies instead of stacking them, which make things a bit interesting.  By the way, this is not the first time I did this kind of event as I did a similar event at Walmart back in 2005 (via New Concepts in Marketing)   Obviously it was much busier that time and was a bit rougher too (more people and all).  Instead of grand prizes, all participants got collapsible cups they can have.
