Congrats GeekDgirl!!! Again, we apologize greatly for not letting people vote on this contest. If I were in the TOP TEN I may feel a bit upset that I couldn't get to vote.
Please hear me out. When I first saw the names for example "Hawaii Fruit-O".....I thought "Thats hilarious" and if i had seconds to vote because we're rushed in a vote...I might just pick that name. But when we sat for a while and actually thought out the name, "Hula Punch" was perfect. This is something that we couldn't foresee 2 months ago when we were making the rules.
This all stems back to having problems with votes in previous contest. This particular contest would have been perfect in the older style of voting we did in past, where we have a week to vote. We obviously could not do that because of duplicate votes being submitted.
Voting is tough!! The government can't even do it!! We promise, next contest will be done perfectly. We see some great ideas!!

Good explanation, Joe. For what it's worth, I was in the top ten, and I don't feel the least bit cheated.

The way I see it, it's your company and your product, so I think you should have implied veto power to choose the perfect name if you see it. Contests can go awry in unforeseen ways - remember when the Mets got rickrolled for a whole season? Or when the space station module almost got named after Stephen Colbert?

That's not to say that any of the contest entries weren't serious entries. I was impressed with all the great ideas and happy to be a top contender.

WOOT! I didnt even see Hula Punch, but my ? bottle is almost gone, so looks like Ill be ordering a bottle of Hula Punch to replace it :D NICE! And it the name does sort of remind me of Hawaiian Puch, so good marketing play there too.

i kept thinkin i was tasting a citrus flavor in there, that must have been the "sour", makes sense now. And no worries Joe, i for one was thrilled to make the top 10 so thanks for that, hula punch is definately the most fitting name, and the choice was made wisely! Vape on mother vapers.

Hey Rebel,

Often it takes a couple days for Joe to find the time to deposit them...it's not an instantaneous thing...be patient...they will be in your account...they always show up...
