Who can give away free candy?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 by Jessica Prokop

 

Candy Favorites can!

Experience the Joy of This...

Big, unruly mobs aren’t for everyone. But sometimes they’re impossible to avoid when it comes to holiday gift shopping. And nothing predicates pandemonium like when a candy company neatly tucks mysterious “yellow vouchers” inside of the carefully packed candies of unsuspecting (but oh-so-hopeful) consumers! Combine both of those situations and you run the risk of absolute mahem.

So what happens when you love gift-giving, candy contests, and the holidays, but don’t enjoy mahem?  Are you out of luck?  Of course not!

We have a solution for that…

We’ve devised the perfect way to deliver massive candy prizes in a way that (probably) won’t inspire anyone to employ rows and rows of round-the-clock unwrap-ers. It’s holiday shopping online with CandyFavorites before December 17th, 2012. Doing so will complete your last-minute shopping list AND make you eligible to win some monstrous candy prizes. There’s no extra effort! You won’t have to get up extra early and help your uncle with his shoes! The best part is that the prizes are due to arrive after holidays are over — when your guest rooms are vacant and it’s time to relax.

Add a personal touch with Handmade Christmas Chocolates

With None of This...

Our premium hand-crafted Swiss chocolates are sure to delight even the most discerning palate on your list . With various chocolates ranging from decadent treats to sure-to-please traditional favorites, these sweets are the best way to finish any holiday meal. When you order any of our handmade chocolates before December 17th, you’ll get a chance to win a big 5-pound box of assorted old-fashioned holiday chocolates.

Christmas is all about great memories.

The spirit of Christmas Past is ushered in style by classic Christmas candies such as filled hard candy, ever-familiar gum drops, and the old standard, Holiday M&M’s. Or maybe your family has a unique candy tradition all its own. We can help you commemorate this season in style with a huge 5-pound box of assorted holiday candies. Any order before December 17th makes you eligible.

A Candy Giveaway: The Straight Talk

And Only Just a Little of This.

The giveaway has two components:

  • Giveaway #1: Each order placed before December 17th that contains a Christmas Chocolate product will be eligible to win a 5-pound box of locally handmade Swiss chocolate Christmas candies with a retail value of over $100.
  • Giveaway #2: Each and every order placed before December 17th will be eligible to win a 5-pound box of classic Christmas candies.

For a chance to win, just place your order as usual!

One randomly chosen order will include a voucher to be redeemed for a box of classic traditional Christmas Candies, and one randomly chosen order that includes a Christmas Chocolate product will be shipped with a voucher to be redeemed for the Christmas Chocolate gift box. These special gifts will be sent out after the 1st of the year.

Act quickly.

The holidays are fast approaching. The time to order gifts is now! The chance to participate in the giveaway ends December 17th, 2012. Don’t miss this mayhem-free, memory-inspiring opportunity!

Earth Day Nostalgic Candy Winners

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012 by Jessica Prokop

Thanks to everyone for sharing your memories! Since nostalgic retro candy is one of our favorite topics, this was a particularly fun contest. We hope that you’ll share your candy anecdotes with us any time they cross your mind. But now that the deadline for submissions has passed, it’s time to announce some winners. So without further ado…

The winners of the Earth Day Candy Giveaway are:

Nicole (who misses Peanut Butter Bars)
Katherine (who loves tiny Chiclets)

Winners will be notified by email or personal Facebook message, depending on how they submitted their entries. (Nicole and Katherine, watch for a message from Jessica!)

Some things we learned:

  • Seasonal candy is great for building memories.
  • Changing the classic formula of a candy is probably worse than just discontinuing it.
  • Many people would rather pay more for their favorite candies than see them disappear.
  • Brach’s Candy has brought a lot of people a lot of happiness — but also some heartache.
  • Many of the candies believed to be extinct are still available! Check out our Retro Candy section
    before you give up the search for your favorite vintage candies.

Earth Day Candy Giveaway

Saturday, April 21st, 2012 by Jessica Prokop

Earth Day is all about saving, and we think it’s important to save your favorite candies from extinction. Over the years, so many delicious, ingenious candies have gone the way of the dinosaurs. We can’t take our favorite candy for granted, or we may never see it again.

In the spirit of conservation, we’re giving away some great nostalgic candy prizes. It’s our way of spreading the love of retro candies and making sure that future generations get to enjoy the same flavors we savor today.

To enter, share your favorite memory of an already extinct candy. Or tell us about the candy you believe should be saved for posterity. Just leave your story in the comments on this post to enter. We’ll announce the winners early next week!

Don’t forget to do your part for the planet. Buy online to save gas. And always dispose of your wrappers responsibly.
