M&Ms Contest x2: Free M&Ms!

February 3rd, 2009 by Rosa

M&Ms just sent me a huge package of their special all green M&Ms for Valentine’s Day. I guess the logic comes from Ms. Green being the only female M&M, so she makes a good jumping off point to brand green the color of love?

Anyways, M&M is running a contest on their website to win a trip to Paris. That contest ends on February 12.

In the meantime, I’m going to run an M&Ms contest as well. I can’t afford to send y’all to Paris, but I will giveaway three 7 oz bags of M&Ms Green Love Message M&Ms, all green M&Ms with the M on one side and conversation heart-style messages on the back, to three lucky readers.

To enter, leave a comment telling me what your favorite conversation heart/M&Ms “love message” is. Contest closes at midnight this Friday, February 6th, so that I can mail the winners their candy ASAP in hopes that it’ll arrive in time for Valentine’s Day. Sorry to my international readers; U.S. addresses only please. And make sure you leave a real email address – only I can see it, and I’ll only use it to contact the winners.

Good luck!

Emily’s Chocolates Contest Winner

June 12th, 2008 by Rosa

Congratulations to….. Emily! (what a coincidence), the winner of my Emily’s Chocolates giveaway, courtesy of Emily’s Chocolates in honor of National Candy Month. She will be receiving a bunch of their goodies, and I will be jealous and bury my sorrows in tea and a scone, or something.

If you’re curious, I used an online random number generator to select the winning comment number.

Emily’s Chocolates Contest

June 2nd, 2008 by Rosa

The folks at Emily’s Chocolates wanted me to remind you that June is National Candy Month. As if I needed such an excuse to eat candy. They also wanted to mail me samples of their chocolates to review, but since I’m abroad, I won’t be able to receive any of them. Fortunately for you, dear readers, they’ve agreed to mail the free chocolates to one of you instead. Hooray!

I got to try their berry and nut holiday mixes and their decadent chocolate-covered sandwich cookies back in December and greatly enjoyed them. Leave a comment with a real email address (just for me to contact you if you win; I have no spam lists to add you to) by 5pm EST next Monday, June 9 for a chance to win their chocolate covered blueberries, strawberries, and cherries (products can be seen on this page; the cherries were my personal favorite). I’ll randomly select one commenter For The Win.

Good luck! And we’ll be back to your regularly scheduled reviews on Wednesday.

Junior Mint Giveaway!

May 6th, 2008 by Rosa

Joel from Candy Xpress, an online wholesale candy seller, sent me a big package of Junior Mints, Colombina Mint Balls, and Trident Tropical Twist gum. Quite the Xtreme care package for reading/finals period, I must say. I gave away lots and lots of the candy to my studying-addled friends, but several boxes of Junior Mints remain for me to give away to 2 lucky winners!

ZOMG, Candy! Giveaway

January 24th, 2008 by Rosa

If you entered my last super sneaky candy giveaway, your prizes were mailed a week ago (except for Leslie; I’m still putting your package together). I decided that I was feeling generous and mailed stuff to everyone who entered!

Now I am giving away a copy of the mini-chocolate calendar that I bought for myself. Mine arrived broken, and I sent the company a complaining email, so they promised me a replacement. I managed to glue/tape my original calendar back together, so I thought I’d share the second with a lucky reader.

You can earn up to 2 entries. 1) Leave a comment with your real email address (only I will be able to see it) and 2) Put a link to ZOMG, Candy! on your website, and share your website when you fill out your comment. The deadline to get your entries in is January 30th, and I’ll randomly draw one of you to win. Good luck!
