    what is a years supply? 25th Apr 18 at 3:42 PM
    Hi, I received a winning e mail last month that i had won this comp

    https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5803912&highlight=irish+oats

    have been chasing it up, last week i picked up 2 boxes of flahaven porridge and 2 bowls, didn't think this was a years supply so thought it was a different comp.
    have now been told that i signed for the prize last Thursday so obviously that is it, 2 boxes for a year??? was looking forward to making oatcakes and flapjacks for the rest of the year, I know it is still a win but a bit disapointed

    it's possible that it was a month's supply of oats and they'll send you more every month or so. I 've won a years supply of cleanser, 12 bottles but each bottle lasts 3 months so way over a year's supply

    Check the T&Cs for any quantities but it can vary tremendously and often be far less than you might first think - for example a 1kg box of rice krispies is 17 portions, if they allow 1 portion a week then roughly 3 boxes is a years supply

    Flahaven ran their own comp in 2017 in the ROI for a years supply and the prize was

    A year's supply of Flahavan's products for one person. The winner will receive a daily serving of porridge oats plus additional sampling products subject to availability.

    Sipsmiths' believe a year's supply of gin is a bottle a month. That's way too much for me - but others here may disagree. A year's supply of Hotel Chocolat is one box a month.

    I just remembered one running at the moment for a years supply of cake - that is not one cake a day or every other day, not even just two cakes a week but only one cake a month. (12 cakes to me is on the mean side for a months supply but for a whole year)

    I won a years supply of Sunny D last year, it arrived in voucher form-52 vouchers for 1L bottles, so 52 Liters is a years supply. There are six of us in this house and we still ended up giving loads of vouchers away.

    What about the Jude's Ice Cream. I think that says it's 52 tubs delivered in one lot? I always wondered how people store it!

    I could get most of them in a 3 drawer fridge freezer and to be honest if you like ice cream it is a push to say one tub makes two portions rather than just a generous one unless you are having it on the side with say hot apple crumble .

    as posted on one of the comps

    Thats only 26 litres, a decent sized freezer should be easily able to store 100 litres upwards (if you decant the ice cream into 4 L storage tubs you only need 7 and they can be had at under 16 for 10

    Ahh, okay. Thanks for the info. My freezer is always pretty stuffed, so would still probably struggle!

    I once won a years supply of Green and Blacks chocolate and there was about 12 huge boxes (with about 40 bars in each). Was pretty chuffed! That does sound a bit lean! Was there anything in the T&CS?

    I won a years supply (10 sacks) of cat litter.

    I can't tell you if it really was a years supply because it wasn't to fussy madam's liking.

    Our local Blue Cross rescue centre appreciated it, though!

    I won a years supply of dog treats and got 12 small bags. I guess one a month is reasonable?

    Recently won a year's supply of gin - it was more of a 'gin subscription' as they do either one bottle (and box of stuff) every month or every two months or less frequently. I got the middle one: a bottle/box every 2 months. More than happy with that as it's really decent stuff. Not a huge gin fan(!) but I don't mind it for a daytime weekend drink, and it's so handy as a lot of my friends drink it and my OH doesn't mind the odd tipple either! And it's great for cocktails! Might even be giving the odd bottle as presents/for parties!
    2018 wins: Single Malt Whisky; theatre tickets; festival tickets; year of gin(!); shoes

    I once won a year's supply of Dentastix.
    I gave it a good go but just couldn't eat more than one at a time.
    The year's supply was one stick per day.
