Meh not a fan of hummus, but winning I love! I can't believe you've won that much from contests! Where do you find em all?

Eep missed the part about Tongal. That's crazy though..congrats.

Sabra hummus with Stacy's Pita chips is the ultimate!

In the 1980's I entered lots and lots of sweepstakes. The last 2-3 years, I won much more than I spent. However, I never won money. Usually the other gifts - 2 Black & Decker Under-the Counter coffee pots, a set of luggage that will last forever, children's gifts, books, a Buck Knife, and on and on and on.

I also won 2 r/t tickets on American Airlines to anywhere in the U. S. These and jewelry and furs are ones to avoid if possible. On the airline tickets, my daughter and I flew to Phoenix to visit family. The taxes on airlines, starting that year, per the IRS, had to be the regular charge for a flight that had no "no fly" dates, etc. I was notified that I would have paid $1,760. for those 2 tickets. Cost me nearly $500+ in taxes, state and federal. The tickets did have "no fly" dates and I could have flown on another airline for $300 for both those tickets. One of my losses. The IRS did this because most airlines have too many prices that are negotiable and cause loss to the tax base. Ha!!

But - it was fun and I loved to come home and check the mail each day and often have a win.

I looove the hummus commercial. I had to watch it a couple of times! Thanks for the tips!
