There's nothing like a warm scone dripping with jam

Ah, as the Fair gets closer, the thought of warm scones dripping with honey butter and raspberry jam can fill your mind. Almost to the point of distraction!

If you haven't heard, this is the 100th anniversary, which is quite a feat for any company. But when they make sure a delicious product, it is no wonder that Fisher Scones have stayed around this long.

In case you haven't heard, today is when they start their contest. They know that their 100 millionth scone will be purchased sometime during the Puyallup Fair. But... when? It should be sometime between Sept. 9 at 10 am and Sept. 25 at 10 pm. It's up to you to guess the day and time. The closest guess will be deliciously yum - $1,000 and scone mix for a year. Now we're talking!

So, go to the Facebook page for Fisher Scones and make your guess. You could be living the good life, surrounded by scones for the next year if you guess right!
