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 try to steer clear of the healthy ones with fruit in them :) I seek out caramel or nuts! Great giveaway!!!

Caramel each and every time.

I always search for the fruit cream filled. Sometimes even cutting a bunch in half to find what I'm looking for :)

Dark chocolate makes me weak at the knees. A dark chocolate truffle dipped in dark chocolate makes me swoon.

I go for the Milk Bordeux at sees! and if i get an assortment i pray there is at least one in the box!
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterEliNicole
If there is a truffle involved in the assortment, I'm diving right in for that one!

Best = caramel squares
Worst = anything with walnuts
When I was younger (or when I'm visiting Dad) I would take bites out of things (if there were no labels) to see if I liked a piece and if not I stuff it back in the box for Dad to eat later.

If they have them (like See's), I grab the honeycomb-covered chocolates, followed by ooey gooey caramel-covered ones.

December 21 | Unregistered Commenterowlchick
Salted caramels are a favorite of mine, I have to say. However, when it comes to chocolate - I'm up for anything!

Good luck everyone, and Happy Holidays!

Any chocolate-covered nuts: almonds, pecans, peanuts, turtles. I love the crunch!
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterCori
I love anything with chocolate and peanut butter.. although I always seem to end up with the chocolate covered cherries. :)
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterAimee
I go for anything with coconut. Caramel comes second.

Caramel, especially the really chewy ones. And I love the salted caramel trend.

My favorite kind of Chocolate is dark with sea salt or SARRIS' almond butter crunch. My husband would about die if we won this giveaway. He's got family from Pitts. PA and is obsessed with the stuff. It is pretty dang good.
December 21 | Unregistered CommenterErica
