Q. What is the Wonderful Pistachios Twitter Promotion?
A. The Wonderful Pistachios Twitter Promotion gives you the chance to correctly unscramble a secret phrase that shows up on the latest Wonderful Pistachios commercial. To submit your entry, post what you think the unscrambled phrase is as a status update from your own Twitter account for a chance to win the Grand Prize of $10,000. #getcrackin is part of the scrambled message and must be included in order to properly enter the contest. Do not tweet the message to @getcrackin.
Once the phrase is correctly unscrambled it will be posted on Twitter from @getcrackin’s account. You can then retweet that exact correct unscrambled phrase to be entered in a sweepstakes drawing for a chance to win one of 140 first prizes of an Apple® iPad® Mini tablet computer**.
