Candies That Scream “Summer” 0

Update! The winner of the “Candies That Scream Summer” contest is Pam Reiser.

Pam says that the candies that reminder her most of summer are … “Sweet and Sour Charm pops! When my brother played baseball in the summer. I would always get a charms pop at the stand!”

Congrats Pam and thanks to everyone who participated. Have a great summer!

________________________________________________

Not everyone screams for ice cream in the summertime. Lots of people actually scream for salt water taffy, cotton candy, fruit slices, licorice ropes, gummies, lollipops, and lemon drops.


In celebration of those people and this first day of Summer 2011, I invite you to answer my burning question:

“What candies remind you of summer?”

Everyone who answers after this post or on Facebook or Twitter will automatically be entered to win a $25 Candy.com Gift Certificate. I’ll announce the winner tomorrow (Wed.) afternoon.

I’ll go first: Razzles, Hot Dog Gum and Candy Dots.

I’m going old-school on this latest Candy.com contest, but giving it a virtual twist.

Guess how many Skittles, Peanut Butter M&M’s, and 1″ Gumballs (total pieces) I packed into this super-cute, half-gallon apothecary jar from Pier One. The first person to answer correctly wins a $25 Candy.com gift certificate. (One guess per person, please.) I’ll announce the winner tomorrow (Monday) afternoon.

I found this dishwasher-safe glass jar while searching for containers for my daughter’s Candy Land-themed birthday party. It comes in half gallon and gallon sizes. Each jar has a chalkboard label on the front for personalizing and comes with four sticks of chalk. Perfect for parties and candy buffets!

Good luck candy counting and enter your guess after this post or on Facebook or Twitter.

Name That Candy Brand Contest 0

4/11/11  Contest UpdateThe winner of the “Name That Candy Brand” contest is Elizabeth Weiss! Elizabeth will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to Candy.com, which will get her a nice supply of Snickers, Baby Ruth, Junior Mints, Dots, or Hershey bars. (The “c” in Snickers was the one letter that threw off a few players. If I run this type of contest again, I’m going for super obscure candy brands. Be prepared for a turbo challenge!)

____________________________________________

I love Fridays. I love Fridays that involve a wacky candy contest even more. The wacky contest I have up my sleeve today involves some Candy.com surfing.

Take a look at the word “Candy” below. (Excuse my lackluster Photoshop job.)


Each letter is taken from a different candy brand’s logo. For instance, the “C” could be from Charleston Chew (hint: it’s not).

Match each letter with its correct candy brand and you’ll automatically be entered to win a $25 Candy.com gift certificate to jump-start your Easter candy shopping.

I’ll announce the winner on Monday after you’ve had a chance to browse candy logos and packaging on Candy.com over the weekend.  We just added lots of new spring candies, including the World’s Largest Gummy Bunny and gorgeous lollipops, so feel free to shop, too!

Please enter your guesses in a list and submit your list after this post or on Candy.com’s Facebook fan page or Twitter. For example:

C = Charleston Chew (again, NOT!)
a = Mike and Ike (not!)
n = Good & Plenty (not!)
d = Red Vines (not!)
y = Milky Way (not, although that would have made for a good “y”)

All five letters come from pretty popular candies, so hopefully this exercise won’t be too taxing for a Friday. Have a great weekend and thanks for playing!
