It’s Candy.com contest time again and we’ve got an easy one to win!

Simply browse Candy.com and tell us which candy item(s) you would buy if you won a $25 Candy.com gift certificate. (Submit your comments after this post or on Facebook or Twitter.)

Everyone who gives us their two cents automatically gets entered to win a $25 Candy.com gift certificate.

I’ll post the winner tomorrow night, so start browsing Candy.com!
(Note to impending winner: Stretch your $25 by entering coupon code “golarge5” and get a 5% discount off entire order until midnight Dec. 10.)

Tip: If I were entering this contest (I would if I could), I’d opt for the 3.5 lbs. of Swedish Fish and 340-piece tub of Dubble Bubble … and use the “golarge5″ coupon code.

Then, I’d wrap up both, give them to my kids on Christmas morning, and badger them until they shared with their mother.

Last week we had an ultra-successful “Candy at the Movies” contest. Since Candy.com fans sure seem to be movie buffs, this week’s contest also centers around Hollywood.

To enter this week’s contest, tell us the greatest candy-related scene(s) that you can recall from a movie or TV show.

Think E.T. and Reese’s Pieces or Seinfeld‘s Kramer dropping a Junior Mint into a patient’s chest cavity while observing surgery. Dive deep into your big- and small-screen archives.

This week’s lucky winner will receive a dozen tubes of Flicks Chocolate Wafers. Yum!

So, hurry up and enter your recollections of candy-related scenes after this post or on Facebook. Winner will be announced on Monday!

Need inspiration? Watch the classic scene that brought new meaning to Baby Ruth.

Turns out celebrity interior designer Courtney Cachet has a sweet tooth and she’s going to be doing a stress-free holiday decorating segment on NBC’s Open House NYC that includes candy. Love that!

Courtney is also holding a $25 Candy.com giveaway on her Facebook Fan Page today, so tell her why you deserve the Candy.com bucks and you could win!

Speaking of decorating with candy, I spied a $14.95 glass Tilt Bowl and $9.95 glass Lidded Jar from Crate & Barrel (see images below) that would look beautiful filled with Jelly Belly Champagne Bubbles, Fall Kettle Corn Nuggets, Red Jordan Almonds, Christmas Nonpareils, Peppermint Balls, Candy Corn Nougat Fluff, Red Licorice Scotties, or snowy White Gumballs.

So simple, yet contemporary, colorful, consumable, interchangeable … and affordable. Score!

Karyn Gold Kirk is this week’s Candy.com Wackiest Candy Name contest winner!

Karyn answered our call for wacky candy brand names and responded with the  “Chicken Dinner” chocolate bar, which was launched by the Sperry Candy Company in 1920.

For more dirt on this candy bar, which was marketed as a meal replacement/nutrition bar, check out 10 Candy Bars You’ll Never Eat. Sooo thankful we have Luna, Clif, Kind, and LÄRA today.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this week’s contest and congrats to Karyn! A dozen Wonka Scrumdiddlyumptious bars will soon be on the way.
