In just a few short weeks, a classic American candy is coming out of retirement. During its initial launch period, it will only be available at Candy.com. Woot!

Next week, I’ll announce the winner … and the much-loved brand coming out of retirement. Expect to be wowed!

In the candy world, the big showdown during Super Bowl XLV isn’t between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers. It’s between Betty White and Roseanne Barr.

Candy lovers want to know which seasoned comedian’s Snickers commercial is going to win the most laughs.

Is it going to be Betty White’s near cult classic from Super Bowl 2010 or Roseanne Barr’s 2011 debut during third quarter? (To be fair, Richard Lewis is also starring in the 2011 commercial, which could give Roseanne a leg up.)

Here’s a look back at the commercial that helped reignite Betty White’s career:

And here’s the teaser for Roseanne’s debut:

So, who do you think is going to win on Sunday?

On Martha Stewart’s Valentine’s Show today at 11 a.m. (CST) on the Hallmark Channel, Weddings Editorial Director Darcy Miller showed off the Valentine she’s giving to her own family and friends: Customized glass jars filled with Candy.com Valentine’s candy! (See the how-to and resource guide on Darcy’s blog and view the segment.)

Here are two photos from this morning’s show. (Thank you Jenn!)

Darcy’s Valentine candy jars were darling and seemed simple enough to make, even for a novice crafter like myself (see my humble DIY Valentine’s Hearts). I’m pretty sure I’m going to steal this idea down to Madelaine’s red chocolate lips!

p.s. – Steal the idea, too. Check out the Valentine’s segment with Martha Stewart and Darcy Miller.
