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.

Candy manufacturers go to great lengths to come up with catchy names for their products. Cases in point: Whatchamacallit, Goo Goo Clusters, Abba-Zaba, and Cherry Mash.

For this week’s Candy.com contest, submit the wackiest existing or retired candy brand name that comes to mind. (No making up wacky candy names … although that could be a good contest down the road. Butterfinger was the result of a public contest held by the candy bar’s original manufacturer, the Curtiss Candy Company.)

Everyone who leaves a comment after this post or on Facebook will be entered to win a dozen Wonka Scrumdiddlyumtious bars (sorry, this name’s off limits).

We’ll announce our Scrumdiddlyumtious winner this Friday, so stay tuned!

Since it’s fall and freaky Friday, it’s the perfect day to ask:

What’s your LEAST favorite Halloween candy?

You know, the one candy you traded out as a kid (or will trade with the neighbors this year).

When I was a small fry, my brother and I would come home Halloween night and go through our stash, trading candy piece by piece. I dumped 3 Musketeers on him and he handed over all of his Almond Joys. It was a clean and fair transaction.

To entice you to share your LEAST favorite Halloween candy (just one!), you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a $25 Candy.com Gift Card. The winner can buy his/her FAVORITE Halloween candy. Watcha waiting for?  Spill it.

Based on the feedback, I’ll post a Top Ten list early next week and announce the $25 gift-card winner. TGIF!
