Thank you Yoga star

SparklyMagpie Sun 24-Feb-19 11:18:02

Aww congrats OP grin

Myusernameismud Sun 24-Feb-19 11:18:27

Little wins are my fave! We won a year long Hotel Chocolat suoscription once. A huge box every month. Best year of my life...

TheQueef Sun 24-Feb-19 11:19:16

How did you notice that, you are doing hariboo wrong!

Congratulations though grin

ClusterFukt Sun 24-Feb-19 11:19:40

Wooohooo congratulations! Hope it’s a fab holiday 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

WeCameToDance Sun 24-Feb-19 11:21:05

Congratulations op! I would never win at this even if I had the double yorker! Haribo barely gets a glance in my house, just straight in the mouth.

Therailone85 Sun 24-Feb-19 11:23:43

Well done the prize is a family UK holiday! Only 20 double yolkers were made! Well done again and have a fabulous time!

KittensAndCake Sun 24-Feb-19 11:25:50

Ooh exciting 👍

BeekyChitch Sun 24-Feb-19 11:29:07

Woohoo!!! Congrats!

MissionItsPossible Sun 24-Feb-19 11:29:14

Congratulations! Keep us updated smile

I would have totally missed this. Remember those little blue packets in Walkers in the 90s that could contain money (but often it was for a free bag of crisps)? Well I once put one in my mouth when I was about 9 and kept chewing it over and over wondering why it wasn’t crunching between my teeth before I took it out and realised it actually wasn’t a very hard crisp 😂😂

SummerIsNearer Sun 24-Feb-19 11:29:26

I'm surprised it's been found!

I have told everyone in the family to keep a look out. My grandmother told me to 'fuck off and just eat the sweets' recently blush

beelover Sun 24-Feb-19 11:30:29

I'd be thrilled just to get a double yolk, they're my favourites, free holiday is extra bonus, congratulations.

comedycentral Sun 24-Feb-19 11:31:25

Aww wow!

TheQueef Sun 24-Feb-19 11:32:26

Am I your Nan?

WTBE Sun 24-Feb-19 11:32:50

Wooooo! I get really excited when people win even better if i do congrats OPflowers

SummerIsNearer Sun 24-Feb-19 11:32:59

Mission that's brilliant! Bit of a rip off that they were only giving coins, wasn't it notes too? Or was that in the 2000's?

Not related but does anyone remember Walkers limited edition Chilly and Chocolate crisps?

I remember toys at the bottom of the cereal... but that was in every box I think. Which leads me to the funny story of my Nan saying "Look Summer, you've got a toy!" - It was actually a cockroach envy She almost fainted and shrieked in horror.

Ratbagcatbag Sun 24-Feb-19 11:33:22

Awwww Yey congratulations.

Whatsnewpussyhat Sun 24-Feb-19 11:34:14

Sorry but that looks like you've just bit around the yolk of another egg and stuck it on a normal 1 yolker.

macaroniandpizza Sun 24-Feb-19 11:35:45

Yaaay well done op

SummerIsNearer Sun 24-Feb-19 11:36:04

Sorry but that looks like you've just bit around the yolk of another egg and stuck it on a normal 1 yolker.

I will inspect when I'm home. It was found by a 15 year old

Whatsnewpussyhat Sun 24-Feb-19 11:37:45

I reckon 15 yr old is winding you up then

lisasimpsonssaxophone Sun 24-Feb-19 11:39:13

Sorry but that looks like you've just bit around the yolk of another egg and stuck it on a normal 1 yolker.

I, err... didn’t want to say, but yes blush Sorry OP!

ItCanOnlyGetBetterRight Sun 24-Feb-19 11:40:52

I've just read this whole thing thinking you must ALL be in on it! That is 100% been bitten off another egg 😂😂 Sorry OP! Cheeky teenager should get a slap for that one! Nice try.

KinkyHair Sun 24-Feb-19 11:41:23

That’s not the double yoker! Someone’s stuck it on.

SlangBack Sun 24-Feb-19 11:42:55

Is it a DY or os the yoke on you shock

IceRebel Sun 24-Feb-19 11:50:50

Definitely a bodge job, the actual sweets have 2 separate yolks not joined together

TheGlaikitRambler Sun 24-Feb-19 11:51:48

Very definitely faked wink

ChristineBaskets Sun 24-Feb-19 11:52:05

My DGD did this trick last week and fooled us all for a minute. If it was a real competition winner there would be something written in the bag too surely.

KittensAndCake Sun 24-Feb-19 12:07:14

Oh that's funny, I did think it looked a bit fake but didn't like to say 🤭

Lifeofa Sun 24-Feb-19 12:11:29

I would be gutted to think I’d won a holiday

shpoot Sun 24-Feb-19 12:12:12

Looks faked sad

BingLiveisRubbish Sun 24-Feb-19 12:18:15

That looks like you've bitten the yolk off another and sat it on? hmm

SinkGirl Sun 24-Feb-19 12:22:20

Oh no OP, I hope it’s not a prank! Bloody teenagers

Sparklesocks Sun 24-Feb-19 12:25:24

Omg sorry to laugh OP but what a prank!!

Thehop Sun 24-Feb-19 12:27:53

That’s a really good prank!!!

foreverderbyshire Sun 24-Feb-19 12:44:40

I think it looks real! I hope it is, op 🤞

Whatsnewpussyhat Sun 24-Feb-19 12:56:06

I think it looks real!

How? You can clearly see the rough edges around the 2nd (fake) yoke and not enough white around it.

JollyAndBright Sun 24-Feb-19 13:33:59

A friend showed me a post from her local Facebook town rant page someone had complained that they had won but haribo had rejected the claim because she didn’t have the bag with the winning code, she wanted people to sign her petition, share her posts and help her shame haribo into giving her the prize.

The people in the comments strongly suspected she was less than honest and someone had cropped and zoomed her image of the sweet and it clearly looked like someone had cut the ends off two eggs and melted the white and stuck them together, it did look very convincing in the image but when zoomed in you could see the ‘join’.

The comments were hilarious and the woman was hysterical, cap locking and calling everyone jealous and spiteful.

HJWT Sun 24-Feb-19 13:43:27


SummerIsNearer Sun 24-Feb-19 13:56:31

Update - It is fake angry A 'cheerful Sunday prank' apparently.

<<Sighs deeply as she continues folding washing>>

Jolly That is funny!

Christine Sorry you were fooled too. My heart sank

2birds1stone Sun 24-Feb-19 14:23:17

Tell the kids next time to wait until April 1st

ch3rrycola Sun 24-Feb-19 14:49:25

Oh dear but good prank grin

Fiveletters Sun 24-Feb-19 14:51:41

Ha I definitely thought you were in on the prank too! Hope you’re not too disappointed!

XiCi Sun 24-Feb-19 14:53:05

Oh OP, that's really fucking mean of them. I'd have been so excited at the thought of winning a family holiday.

ILoveBray Sun 24-Feb-19 15:08:57

Oh dear OP sorry it was a joke!

This reminds me of when I was about 10 years old and Polo were doing a 'Find The Golden Polo' competition.....

My sister and I removed a lemon Polo from a fruit flavoured pack and stuck it behind a sweet in a mint pack, then offered my mum one. She went nuts thinking we'd won £100,000!

We felt so bad.....

Hunter037 Sun 24-Feb-19 15:10:49

sad thats so mean OP
You must get them back with something even meaner

RageAgainstTheVendingMachine Sun 24-Feb-19 15:15:28

Ah OP. flowers cake brew
I was genuinely really pleased for you.
My kids know pranking me never ends well wink so fair play to you for them thinking you have a decent sense of humour or they're just bastards, only you can answer that grin

lisasimpsonssaxophone Sun 24-Feb-19 15:33:25

Sounds like you need to buy an empty iPhone/iPad box off eBay and pull a wee prank of your own wink

‘Darling I’ve bought you a present!’

Then they open it to find it contains nothing but Haribo fried eggs.

SilverySurfer Sun 24-Feb-19 19:24:14

Oh so sorry OP sad I hope you are busy this evening, plotting your revenge.

Chelseajunior Sun 24-Feb-19 19:30:32

Bloody teenagers!
You must get revenge mwahahahah.

SummerIsNearer Sun 24-Feb-19 21:13:06

She's not my 15 year old so can't do the iPhone trick without suspicion envy

KittyVonCatsworth Sun 24-Feb-19 21:35:27

Awwwww, I had my proper chuffers on for you as well 😥 I love a nice win story. My taxi driver brightened my day today when he told me he'd won 13k in the lottery 10 years ago.

MissionItsPossible Mon 25-Feb-19 00:34:59

Is she turning 16 this year? You could start researching into those fake ‘winning’ scratchcards when she does wink

mokapot Mon 25-Feb-19 03:01:02

Good for them. Nice to have a laugh 😂
