  1. I injoy your product. I do not see a code in Just Bunches box and when i try to enter vacation to anywhere and press enter now,no links appear for me to enter.how else can i enter .

  2. This is unfair!! I do not like Hony Bunches of Oats I like Just Bunches. Why can’t I just use the the codes that I have collected from the Just Bunches Boxes?? Why do I neeed Both??

    ITS NOT FAIR !!!!

  3. I love honey bunches of oat its very delicious and nutritional, fun to eat at any time and I also like their sweepstakes; I hope I win vacation 2 anywhere you choose! and thank you honey bunches of oat!.

  4. Why do I have to buy Just Brunches To entry your contest?? I do not like Just Brunches, I like Honey Bunches of Oats. So I guess I can not entry your contest.

  5. Although I typed the codes over and over, I kept getting the message that one or both codes were incorrect, and I typed them just as they were coded
    on the boxes.

  6. I bought both products required and tried to enter my codes only to be told they were invalid. From comments above I see I’m not the only one having this problem. Was this just a promotion gimmick? How are you getting by with this? It should be against the law for you to offer something and then make it impossible to enter.

  7. I bought the required boxes for this sweepstakes but when I went in to play I recieved a message that the codes were not working. Now when I’m trying to enter different codes, there is a message that the game has ended,but it shouldn’t end until 11:59pm. EST 6/30/09 and it’s only 2:20pm Central Time 6/30/09 now. I’m very upset that after buying the required products,(they are not cheap)I can’t play my codes. What can you do to help me with this?

  8. This is a ripoff – my box of cereal says the contest is on now and when I go to the site all it is is a way to get people to sign up for commercials and a message that the contest is over – maybe it’s time for an organized boycott of Honey Bunch’s!

  9. After nine times trying to enter your contest, I gave up! I have a code from the inside the box, but it is useless if your site will not let me enter! The problem stems from your hacker code. Are you having a problem? I really enjoy this cereal, but don’t advertise a contest,’Party in Paradise’, if patrons aren’t allowed to enter the promotion.

  10. I tried to enter the game which began on 6/8/09 however I keep getting messages that the game is over. What is the correct information and how do I enter?

  11. We bought two boxes of our favorite Honey Bunches of Oats in anticipation of your contest. When I win, will it be permitted to take some on the plane to Hawaii? It’s a long flight and I don’t want to be deprived of my favorite.

  12. What a joke. 1st problem is the code number-can’t read it with a maginfing glass!!! 2nd. You can’t decide what dates are required for stupid contest. Totally a waist of time jacking with this crap. I think I will just switch brands of cereal. You should know anything owned by Phillip Morris is a bunch of SMOKE & MIRRORS!!!!!!!

  13. I BOUGHT THIS CEREAL AUG23 2009 AND FOUND OUT THE CONTEST IS OVER WHY DONT YOU PUT THE DATE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BOX ??

  14. your cereal is still out there with the vacation giveaway,just found out the contest is over with as of two months ago, pull the boxes or put the date the giveaways good for onthe outside of box.thanks for nothing.

  15. I have been buying Honeybunches of oats for the past 15 years I think i will never buy another product also I will try the new Honey Bunches of oats with pecans.

  16. I want to enter the party in paradise game. It started on 6/8/09, how do i enter my code for this? The box tells you to go to onespoonful.com What do i do? where does the code go?

  17. I was looking for something to use as dessert instead of cookies & junk and can’t drink milk. Oats w/peaches or pecans is great for that BUT your contest is a farce. My box said contest starts 12:01 Et 6-8-09 and ends 11:59 Et 10-7-09. It is only 9-8-09 and web site says game over. From comments above the contest ended in June. Heres my code which is probably no good either.X4Y6T4Y7Y4. That’s my question YYY4 are you running this contest if it doesn’t exist. You must back the socialist gov’t we’re getting now!!!!!!

  18. Bought the peach flavored cereal about two weeks ago. Just went to the website today. Although the link is still on their main page, there is no place to enter your code. The page that comes up is blank, except for a spot at the bottom where you can sign up for an email newsletter. Although it stinks not being able to see if my code was the winner, I’m glad to see I’m not the only one.

  19. Way to go, leave the clearly marked sweepstakes signed boxes out for people to hopefully buy and win a vacation, but it ended 2 months ago. Quit squeezing the public, with your false advertisment! Be honest! Pull the old boxes, and start fresh, it’s not like your making $22,000 a year! Show the American people you care! Rather than the other way around!
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Monroe

  20. Con Game I came to this website to see if I am an instant winner. The only way I can retaliate is to no longer buy your product and advise everyone to do likewise.

  21. I GUESS IM LIKE ALOT OF THESE PEOPLE WHO FEELS LIKE WE HAVE A BAD DEAL WITH THIS CONTEST. BUT IM NOT GOING TO JUDGE,BUT I HOPE YOU DO BETTER NEXT TIME,BECOUSE I DO ENJOY YOUR CEREAL,AND MY KIDS ALSO.

  22. I agree with those comments above. The “Official Rules” to the game say it is not over until 10/7/2009 – but your website says the game was over 6/30/2009! This is no way to run a contest! I love Honey Bunches of Oats with real Peaches (and it is not cheap!) – but I now know Post doesn’t know how to run a contest! What a load of c_____!

  23. Today is 10/7/09 and the time is 1:01 P.M., I tried to enter a code for this contest as the rules required before 11:59 P.M. ET and found the sites screen saying that the game is over. Why is this ?? I still have over 10 HOURS until the game is over according to YOUR RULES.

  24. this is the biggest disappointment of my day. my daughetr was excited and encouraged me to go on this websie to register for this sweepstake which is alreday over. my other complaint is why they make u register, take all your info and there is no sweepstake. this is so unfair and i think we should all boycott honey bunches of oats unless they rectify this issue.

  25. I love the almonds and crispy flakes and crunchy bunches of oats honey , and I hope I’m win one of the 100 winners to party in paradise.

  26. Here it is november, and you still have the boxes with the contest on them. As big as the Post Company is, you could have pulled the contest boxes off the shelf. I enjoy the cereal very much, but the advertisement for the game should be off the shelf.

  27. WELL, AFTER READING EVERYONE’S COMMENTS IT SADDEN ME BECAUSE CONSIDERING WHAT EVERYONE’S ONE THROUGH ROUGH TIMES A VACATION WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY NICE….HIS REMIND ME OF A SWICH AND BATE, BUT OU DIDNT HAVE O DO IT THE LOVE HONEY BUNCHS DISPITE OF ANYWAY……KIM

  28. For the last two weeks, I have bought two packages of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal with Real Peaches, and they didn’t have any peaches. This is the first time I have encountered this problem with your cereal. I thank you for letting me express myself.
