My Name Is My Giveaway

I've reached 500 followers (yay thank you lovelies!) and I'm almost up to 250 books for this year! To celebrate this and the fact that it's Turkey Day I'm hosting a giveaway! Happy Turkey/Tofurkey Day!

I'm thankful for my name. While it is an unconventional name in America* it is a part of me. I cannot imagine myself with a new name that would not be awkward.

*I can prove that since 90% of my teachers are unable to pronounce my name for the first 2-3 months.

I'm giving away a YanYan (go on wikipedia if you don't know what this is). The winner's choice of flavor: chocolate dip, strawberry dip, vanilla dip, chocolate/strawberry dip, or chocolate biscuit with vanilla. (If I find more flavors I'll let the winner know).

To enter you must be a follower (stupid rule). You just need to answer the following question: if you were named after a snack what kind of snack would you be? The why is optional.

Does anyone know if it'll be okay to mail food out of the country? Contest will end next week at December 3rd.


  1. If I were named after a snack I'd want to be named after a Moon Pie. :D It just makes me giggle.

    As for the mailing food internationally-- it depends on the country (and the food). I'd check the USPS website and see what's allowed.

  2. It would be an awesome snack! People will push other people out of the way just to buy one ;) I think it would be a weird kind of sweet flavor (a flavor that tastes real sweet but it's kind of weird.) and I'll make it sugar free, so everyone can eat some :)

    How cool is that? And yes, I think it's possible to mail food out of the country. I just got some food from the Philippines [yes it was mailed in a package ;)

    Sorry if I talked too much, haha :)

    Super contest, by the way! And I love Yan Yan :))

    And I feel for you. LOTS of people pronounce my name wrong.

    ~ Veronica [this is my pen name/alias just so you won't get confused ;]

    P.S. congrats with the followers ((:

  3. Fun contest! And congrats on all of the followers! :)

    I'd have to say Mars Bars. Not necessarily because of the name, but because it'd be fun to have a name that rhymed.


  4. Congrats on all those followers! That's awesome. And I love your name. If I were name was a snack, I think it should be Coco - I love chocolate!

  5. That's totally me>>>>>>>>>>>> http://www.asia-discount.de/shop/images/product_images/info_images/yumyum_ente.jpg :DDD

  6. I've never heard of yanYan before, but it sounds yummy! Hope you can ship internationally ;)
    I would like to be named Mars, since my birthday's in March (Mars = Swedish for March)or Snickers, since that's a cool name!

  7. I'd love the chocolate/strawberry dip!

    I'm already named after a snack - Mary Jane..as a kid I was called "one cent'! these days I'd probably at least be a dime! LOL


  8. I love yanyan when I was little I'd take them in to school. So yummy.

    I'd be named after Kit Kat just coz I'm boring and can't think of anything better. But also because then I'd wear a cool t-shirt I saw with Kit is a cylon on it everywhere.


  9. I'd say a Reese's peanut butter cup, because my last name is Reese. :)

  10. Don't count me in. I just want to say congrats on having 500+ followers and that Yanyan is dammn yummy. I love it!!!

  11. I'd be an Almond Joy. Not because it actually fits me, just 'cause they're my favorite. =) Btw, how do you pronounce your name? Yanyans are the best, ever!

  12. I pronounce the "a" like an "o". If you watch Sharon's vlogs sometimes you says my name.

  13. I think I'd be JellyBelly:) hahaha! Thanks!

  14. Mochi. Greatest Japanese dessert ever! And I think it could pull off as a name for a person. Though I think whoever says it will have a laughing fit everytime.

  16. Ding Dong or Kisses
