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 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.
Hello to all you candy lovers out there! This weekend we hosted a giveaway featuring prizes from Trident and Stride. The entries, which now appear on product listings throughout our site, were entertaining and interesting as usual.
We’re happy to announce the winners of the $25 Visa gift cards and Trident & Stride gift packs. (Contest winners will also be notified by email.)
And the winners are:
Watch out for more contests on the way.
Perhaps a springtime scavenger hunt is in order…
We heard some seriously funny stories about candy, and learned that some candies are more “favorited” than others. Thanks to everyone who entered for submitting such great reviews.
The two reviewers who are each entitled to a $25 Sweet Certificate are:
- Warren W.
To everyone else, the chances to win don’t end here. We’ll be giving away a $10 Sweet Certificate every week to someone who leaves a review of a candy on our site. Just leave a review on any of our 3,000 products and you’ll be entered in the drawing for that week. And bigger, better, more exciting contests are on their way.
This has been our best contest ever. Reading the reasons we should choose each of you to win had us laughing and crying. There were so many great responses that we eventually had to just narrow down the finalists and pick a name at random.
And so, without further ado, the winner is:
Mary Ann Wentzel
We’ve learned a lot about our customers over the past few days. Many of you feel really sentimental about Brach’s candy. Some are fueled by sweets every single day (and nobody’d better get between you and your candy). Those of you who are diabetic are not alone in your love of candy — but be careful! We have a whole section of sugar-free candies in every flavor — even Turtles!
The fact that Candy Favorites customers are the sweetest people on earth definitely shone through. So many people asked to receive the candy so they could pay it forward — to family, ailing friends, the military, or volunteer organizations. We will definitely be hosting more giveaways around here, and with more prizes. Because, after all, you definitely deserve it!
If you have a great idea for a contest, tell us in the comments!
Why should you win a $50 Sweet Certificate from CandyFavorites.com?
