First Ever Giveaway!

I'm so excited. I've wanted to do a blog giveaway contest of some sort but could never come up with what I'd give away. Today, inspiration struck. Here it is... ta da:

Chocolate covered sunflower seeds... native to Kansas since the sunflower is my state flower (I think).

And if you want, you can make these.

So here's how to win them,* leave a comment, any comment. Maybe about your favorite candy. Your favorite food local to where you are. How much you love my blog. Etc.

TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE CONTEST, YOU MUST COMMENT BY 6 PM CST, Friday, March 27. WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN AT RANDOM (possibly Princess Sparkley will pull your name out of a hat) and will be announced Friday night.




*I asked Jed what I should have you do to enter this contest (ie: answer a question, just comment) his suggestion was have you pay for the candy and the cost of shipping it. His other suggestion was have you bid on it. Helpful. (He would also prefer that the random drawing selects one of my local readers so we can just hand it to them at church.) :)

Oooo, my favorite candy, eh? I love Whoppers, caramels (like Brach's) Reisin and lots of others. My favorite local food? Maybe bułka z serem. How much do I love your blog? MORE THAN ANYONE. (Which of course is why you should pick me).

I LOVE Jed's suggestions. He sounds quite a lot like Greg (i.e. funny and frugal). I wanted to offer $50 to anyone who could find their blog title in the book I review last week and he was all, "What if 20 people find their title in there!?!" (this wasn't so much of a display of his funny side as his frugal side.)

My favourite candy lately is chocolate-covered caramels. I hardly ever eat them because I haven't figured out how to make my own, but they're such a treat.

Erin said...

Pick me! no shipping! And yes, the sunflower is our state flower.

Rae said...

Your hubby is hysterical! Sounds like something mine would say!!

Every time I am in Borders I look at those sunflower seeds and want to buy some. Hope I win so I can finally indulge!

Right now my favorite candy is Hershey's Candy Coated Milk Chocolate eggs. Oh. My. Heck. I can't stop eating them. They're on sale @ Target right now for $2.33 a bag. Not good!

If I win we can save money on shipping. So pick me!

I LOVE YOUR BLOG!

Angela said...

I love all candy, except I can't taste any of it still, so maybe you shouldn't pick me. It might be a waste, although Adam would love them for sure.

Clark Family said...

Wow, these sound interesting! PS I hope you pick me!

My husband loves sunflower seeds and chocolate. I bet he has never had them together. How interesting. My favorite candies are the sweettart bunnies that come out around easter.

Chocolate covered sunflower seeds! How clever. I know I'd love those, probably all at the same sitting!

How do you feel about multiple entries?

How exciting! I'd love to try these! I just recently got in to doing product reviews and giveaways and LOVE it! Not to mention blogging! Happy Friday!
