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!

Winter Break Trip Roundup

December 31st, 2007 by Rosa

Happy New Year’s Eve! I get to fly home to Austin today. Hooray! I shall be traveling with a wheeled carry-on suitcase literally half-full of candy. Hooray! And that’s not even counting my bag of Jelly Belly Flops. Hooray!

Many thanks go out to my parents, who decided we were past due for a family vacation and then proceeded to let me drag them from candy store to candy store. And for buying me the Vosges stuff, the See’s box, and the Jelly Belly Flops. And for offering to buy me an assortment of Scharffen Berger mini-squares, which I passed on mostly out of guilt, as they’re quite pricey, and my parents would never buy them for themselves.

Here’s a rather lengthy round-up of all the places I visited and what I bought, to be expanded upon in the coming days, weeks, months, etc. Read the rest of this entry »

Free 5 gum!

September 15th, 2007 by Rosa

EDIT: This contest is now closed.

I got this pretty sweet package in the mail from BzzAgent for their new 5 gum promotion.

It’s enough gum to keep me chewing for a while, so I thought I’d share it with the rest of the world. I’ve opened the Flare (cinnamon) already, but I’ll give away the Cobalt (peppermint), Rain (spearmint), and the Buy 1 Get 1 Free coupons. Just leave a comment with your email address (Only I will be able to see it, and I promise not to send you spam) by Saturday, September 22. If several people enter, I’ll do a drawing. If not that many people enter, then everyone wins! Unless you live outside of the U.S., in which case I can’t afford to mail you gum. Leslie is an exception to this rule, because she is awesome.

I’ll try to have a review of this gum up next week. Right now, I’m chewing a piece of Flare (I feel like such an idiot, calling my gum Flare flavored), and it’s pretty good. I’ve been chewing for a while, and the flavor is still going strong.
