Locally Laid Egg Company's ad won't be running in the Super Bowl.

The Wrenshall company announced on its Facebook page Thursday afternoon that toy maker GoldieBlox was the winner of an Intel contest for 30 seconds of air time during the Super Bowl.  Locally Laid was named a runner up.

The Facebook post thanked supporters, saying, "You did an impressive job. The PR firm working with Intuit says that Locally Laid got media impressions that number in the billions – that’s billions with a B. That’s a whole lot of attention for a retro egg, a pasture-raised bird, and the little company trying to do her right. Plus it was good for Duluth, good for Minnesota and good for farmers raising Real Food everywhere."

Locally Laid representatives were flown to New York for the announcement.
