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 always torn between the chocolate truffles and the dark chocolate orange creams.

Caramels and toffee, every time.

I have three faves: almonds, cashews, or coconut. Or all three together! : ) Thanks for the chance to win!
December 22 | Unregistered Commenteraimee
I love any and all things dark!!
December 22 | Unregistered Commenterlyndsay
hmm... I usually go for the nuts dipped in chocolate. But I dont think I have ever been gifted chocolates before :( the only time I ever get a chance to eat them it is from an expired (well, past the sell by date) box at work. Eww... and they are usually sugar free.

I search high and low for the peppermints, especially if they're dark chocolate, and if there aren't any, decadent buttercream is a close second!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterKathleen Fields
i always search for anything hazelnut or pralines...yum!!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterHannah
I always go for the caramel ones first
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterTherese
defintely the coconut filled dark chocolate =P YUMMMMMMMMY
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterMegan-Noelle Larkin
I will poke and poke and poke until I feel that familiar bumpy chocolate, hiding meaty pecans or almonds under the thick veil of chocolate. If I'm lucky, there is caramel swimming around in there to!
December 22 | Unregistered CommenterShauna
Is it gauche to love chocolate-covered cherries? I don't care -- I love them!
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterMarlow
It's always the caramels - I can spot them in any box!!!!
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterTerri
- the salty nuts ones -- love that combination with chocolate!
December 23 | Unregistered Commenterbombayduckpickle
chocos with peanut butter if included and if not the caramels!
December 23 | Unregistered Commenterpiper
I like the caramels. :)
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterJulia
I always go for the butter creams, followed by the caramel/nut candies. Yum!
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterLisaT
I love those chocolate covered honeycomb candies... sweet like caramel but slightly salty and crunchy.
Thank you for the chance to win. Happy Holidays.
December 23 | Unregistered Commentermidlfig
Love them all, but Grand Marnier has me at HELLO.
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterNancy
I go right for the coconut chocolates!
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterCheryl
I love almost all, especially coconut or maple cream but I shy away froom ones with fruit filing. When I am in Pennsylvania and in the Sarris store, I always look for the goofs--that way I get a taste of a delicious variety of the chocolates!!!!! (They have yummy ice cream, too!)
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterGlenda
I love the square caramel chocolates BUT I'm guilty of being THAT person who bites into over half of them & puts the nasty pink/orange ones back in hopes of finding that elusive caramel or chocolate filled one! :)
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterLaura
I like the honeycomb crunch covered in dark chocolate.
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterKathleen
Caramel filled anything for me!!
December 23 | Unregistered CommenterKelly Santos
definitely the dark chocolate with the coconut filling.... YUM!
