PROVIDENCE, RI—Vowing to never give up hope, local man Mark Prasad admitted Tuesday that he’s starting to think he didn’t win the Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes 1995 sweepstakes for a free trip to the Australian Outback. “Every day, I check the mail in hopes of finding a flashy envelope from Kellogg’s telling me to pack my bags because I’ve been randomly selected to spend four days and five nights camping in the Outback, and every day I’m bitterly disappointed,” said Prasad, 42, who began to suspect something was wrong back in 2004 when he emailed the Kellogg’s public feedback account to enquire whether they had announced a winner and failed to receive a response. “The 24 years between when I mailed in the raffle entry card from the back of the Frosted Flakes box and now has tested my resolve, but I’m trying to stay positive. I’ve done a ton of research on Australia, and I know exactly what I need to pack to make sure I have a memorable vacation. The fine print says the winner gets to take a guest. I used to think I’d bring my best friend Lucas, but now I guess I’ll have to invite my wife.” When reached for comment, a spokesperson for Kellogg’s confirmed that a winner for the 1995 sweepstakes would be announced later this month.
