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!

Anything with nuts is snapped up first! Then, delicious coconut. Last will always be anything with peanut brittle. :P

I like the Whitman's sampler coconut chocolate doohickies - they're basically milk chocolate and toasted finely ground coconut, poured and set in a dark brown mini muffin cup. So simple and yet so good.

Any truffles that aren't filled with fruit flavoring.(especially the maple creams) I just don't like chocolate and fruit together.
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterSarah
I like the salty/sweet combo! Those pretzels sound amazing and I love anything with dark chocolate and peanut butter!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterGennie
Anything dark chocolate calls to me first! ...I like the ones with nuts, pretzels, marshmallow, carmel or chocolate truffle fillings! ...I don't dig the fruity ones too well.
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterJennyK
I love chocolate covered almonds!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterBecky
oOo it's like a game of Memory for me each time I have to pick, "....ok, last time the coconut one was a circle with dark chocolate...would they mix it up and make a coconut a square? Uhhhh...I chooose....you!"

btw, my fave: COCONUT CREAM! :)
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterNicole B.
I don't usually get assortments, but I guess I would say that chocolate with coconut is my favorite. Although lately I've really been digging chocolate combined with salty things, like peanuts or sea salt.
