Sweet Giveaway: Delicious Candy from Sarris Candies

The holidays can be a stressful time. Stress makes you hungry.

But at least one lucky reader (well, from the lower 48 US States, that is) won't starve to death, because Sarris Candies was kind enough to offer some sweet booty for a giveaway!

Never heard of Sarris Candies? Too bad, because not only do they have delicious chocolates, but they come with a delicious backstory which includes both chocolate and love:

You might say it all started when Frank Sarris found a sweetheart. As a young man trying to win the affections of the lovely Athena, Frank presented her with a gift as sweet as she was, a box of chocolates. Athena's face lit up as she lifted the lid and Frank knew he was in love. He also knew he could make better chocolate.

And so he began, first producing small amounts in his basement for friends and family and then, as the word spread, he began making more and more candy for the local market. Frank and Athena married soon after and Sarris Candies was born in the basement of their Canonsburg (PA) home. 

and it goes on...

To this day, Frank and Athena are still sweet on each other. One taste of Sarris Chocolates and you'll fall in love, too!

What could you win? Good stuff. The parcel will start with a one-pound assortment:

Our most popular assortment containing old time favorites such as freshly roasted nuts, double dipped in our rich milk chocolate, assorted meltaways, fresh fruit creams, toasted coconut, caramels and more all nestled in a beautiful gold foil gift box

But wait, there's more! Said reader will also receive a sweet and salty delight known as the Pretzel Bag:

In the kitchen, bakers hand-twist fresh dough into those old, familiar knots, then oven-bake them to just the right crispness. Each pretzel is then lovingly dipped into decadently rich milk, dark or white chocolate. 

How do you put your name in the running? Simply leave a comment below saying what your favorite type of chocolate is when you receive an assortment. Do you dig in for the often square-shaped caramels, like me? Or do you try to find an elusive maple cream? Or perhaps you covet the chocolate covered cherries?

Of course (duh) if you can't wait, you can always order online here.

The giveaway will close on Tuesday, December 28 at 12pm PST!

I'm like you - square shaped caramels all the way!

Chocolate covered cherries all the way--dark chocolate and non-artificial-tasting cherry is the best!

I'm out of the US right now so I can't take part in the contest, but if there's anyone on the fence about entering--don't be, especially if you're a milk chocolate fan. It's old-fashioned, non-trendy candy and there should always be a place for things like that. We used to sell it for fundraisers at school and my grandmother still goes there for her Christmas gift stock-ups.

And what I pick in an assortment? Squares always hide my favorite things and fruit creams are the last bits to go.

Anything with caramel wins me over.

I love chocolate/fruit truffles, especially a chocolate pineapple truffle.

Oh...my..gosh... that container is perfect!!!!

When I get a box of chocolate, I tend to always like dark chocolate but if its a mixed situation, look for sharp corners on the chocolates (caramels) or maple creme!

I always dig out the caramels first, then it's the chocolate covered cherries.

First piece I go for is usually a coconut or a nut mixture. The sweet and salty mixture is my favorite!

Chocolate covered nuts - pecans, pistachios, cashews, peanuts, mmmmm!!! =)

I love ones with hazelnut but the dark chocolates usually win me over!

I usually go straight for the caramels.
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterWendy
I just pick the most mysterious looking one and hope for the best!

Those sound amazing! I always go straight for the coconut or caramels in milk chocolate. HEAVEN.
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterCara
My favorite are truffles, specifically mocha flavored ones!
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterJanine
I always grab something that looks like there's any kind of nut inside. I love peanuts and chocolate!
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterDominique
I immediately scan for coconut. If there is no coconut, I go for the darkest chocolate I see :)
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterJess
Coconut is my favorite!
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterMarcelina
I always go for the caramels!!
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterMeghan
i love the caramels for sure!
December 21 | Unregistered Commentersarah!
I always pick the caramels. Then I check if there's anything coffee flavored. In my family we always give my sister a box for Christmas. She takes a bite and puts it back so we always know what's in the middle.
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterLibby
I LOVE the vanilla ones and the maple ones!
