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 always look for the ones with nuts!

whenever i receive a box of chocolates, i generally start out with a coconut chocolate first. once that craving has been satisfied, i'm good with whatever i end up with, but not so much when i hit a cream that has no taste, just sugary weirdness. THOSE i generally don't dig.

I like the carmels as well, but I don't have much luck finding the chocolate covered cherry. I usually get the orange creme :(
December 24 | Unregistered CommenterAnn
Caramel is my all time favorite!
December 24 | Unregistered CommenterBecky
Chocolate ganache, certainly.

Dark chocolate truffles & caramels - of course!

Favorite?! Hrm..anything chocolate, anything covered in chocolate and chocolate covered chocolate!

I try the mystery ones in hopes that there's a new flavor I haven't tried. I'm overjoyed if I chose well (vanilla creams and caramels rank highly; pineapple would be new and delicious) and sad when it doesn't work out so well (coconut anything or maple creams).

I go for the unusual flavors; strawberry balsamic, lavender honey, anyhing with bacon! :)
December 26 | Unregistered CommenterRachael
I always hope there will be those milk chocolate covered toffees in the mix but if not then 2nd best is the caramels
December 27 | Unregistered Commentermonicat
