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 all for the chocolate covered orange slices!

Chocolate covered cherries!! I also like the fruit gelee kind, raspberry....

I keep the best for last, always. Usually a caramel is last but every once in a while a coffee cream with dark chocolate will make it to the end of the box "alive" (atleast until I eat it up!)

I am the odd person out. I like the fruit creams in the box. The strawberry ones are the best.

I love the carmel/nut assortments best. Yum!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterDonna
Chocolate with something raspberry inside is the best to me!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterHeather T.
dark chocolate coconut is my favorite!! But I save the best for last!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterLaura
So caramel is my trusty go-to / standby. But on occasion I crave an orange creme, vanilla creme or maple creme. MMMM. Can't wait for Santa to bring me some!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterCatie Cupcakes
Maple cream, all the way! Coconut with almond is a close second.
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterEmily
I like trying the weird flavors (usually incorporating fruity creams and rums), but I'd have to say toffee is my fav :)
December 22 | Unregistered Commentercadtails92
I always cross my fingers that I bite into a chocolate truffle!

Anything with dark chocolate all the way through. I'm a sucker for that.
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterShawna

December 22 | Unregistered CommenterOlivia M.
i always go for the milk chocolate pieces!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterLindsey
Oh My! Sweet and salty together - my first pick in an assortment is the chocolate covered pretzel - the darker the chocolate the better!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterPenny R
anything with peanut butter!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterEmily
I LOVE Sarris Candy! I have been to their factory in Canonsburg more times than I can remember. My kids are now Sarris fans, also!

Anyway - I think my favorite in an assortment has to be the caramels. Always have to find those and devour them.

Thanks, so much, for mentioning Sarris Candy!
i love anything with hazelnuts!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterWendy
I go for the crunchy types or chocolates with nuts. Then I look for coconut. Mmm.
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterLinda
I love anything dark chocolate, but I always ask if there's anything with raspberry filling first. I don't think anything is quite as amazing as dark chocolate and raspberry :D
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterLindsey W B
Chocolate covered cherries, always mine! :)
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterJamie
i try to find chocolate truffles and avoid any with fruit
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterDelia
I do love caramels, but I typically go after a coconut haystack or a vanilla creme-filled one.
