It’s contest time at Candy.com! We’ve got a fun one, too.

Here’s the scoop: Find our Lil’ Red Lollipop Girl somewhere on the Candy.com site. I’ve hidden her pretty well, so it’ll be interesting to see how fast it takes someone to find her. The first person to find Lil’ Red wins a $25 Candy.com Gift Certificate. (Post her whereabouts after this post or on Facebook or Twitter.)

I’ll throw out some clues if Lil’ Red is still MIA tomorrow morning.

Happy hunting and find our girl!

P.S. While you’re hunting, take 10% off your entire Candy.com order until 11:59 p.m. est. tonight! Use webcode gift10

Happy Birthday Candy.com! 0

This month marks Candy.com’s second year online. Oh, what a ride it’s been!

In two years, Candy.com has sold more than 1 million pounds of candy, appeared on “The Martha Stewart Show” in February 2011 (Valentine’s Day segment) and May 2011 (Wedding Shower segment), as well as several other publications, has a supportive Facebook and Twitter following, and has been lucky enough to be able to help thousands of brides, party planners, parents, and candy lovers create memorable candy buffets, dessert tables, party favors, and candy crafts. Woo hoo!

——————————————————————————————–
Fun fact:
If you lined up each Bonomo Turkish Taffy bar sold to date at Candy.com end-to-end, it would almost reach the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. That’s some serious taffy eating!
——————————————————————————————–

Working at Candy.com is as fun as it sounds, too. The Candy.com team is dreamy. I wish everyone could work with positive, energetic people like this. It’s hard not to gush.

So, many thanks for your candy business over these last two wonderful years. It is much appreciated. In celebration of our birthday and our great customers, please take 10% off your entire order this weekend with webcode gift10. (Offer ends Sunday, July 31, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. est.)

And now, it’s time for cake … and M&M’s.

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.
