Those who longed to win a golden ticket from Willy Wonka as a kid can now (sort of) live their dream thanks to a different dessert giant.

Giving away golden tickets to 100 customers today is cookie brand Famous Amos, which is opening its first store in the Philippines today at the S Maison mall in Pasay City.

The golden tickets will be hidden inside cookie bags and are equivalent to a PHP100 (US$1.96) gift card, the store said in a Facebook post today.

It also previously announced that special edition cookie jars will be given to the first 10 people to buy 1 kilo of cookies on a single purchase.
