Yume Blush giveaway

Today’s giveaway is a little different. It smells like candy, sort of looks like candy, is inspired by candy, and is even edible! But it’s not candy… Though it may look like chocolate mousse, it’s actually a chocolate-raspberry flavored edible body butter/massage oil/lip treatment from the folks at Yume Blush. I got a free sample…

Sour Patch Kids contest and giveaway

Sour Patch Kids is currently running a Facebook campaign that extends their promotion of Sour Patch Kids as little trouble makers that do “sour” things and then try to make up for it with a small, “sweet” gesture. It’s the case of The People vs Sour Patch Kids, and the trial’s playing out over Facebook….

Zeke’s Butterscotch + Giveaway

I received this box of Uncle Zeke’s Old Fashioned Cracked Butterscotch, or Zeke’s Butterscotch, for short, as a free sample from the manufacturer. My only experience with butterscotch has been with the little gold Brach’s discs, and I didn’t know what to expect from the Old Fashioned moniker. The butterscotch came in shards of various…

SendFudge Giveaway

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Fudgie Wudgie review comes today’s free fudge giveaway, courtesy of SendFudge.com. They offered me a free sample of their fudge for review, but, as noted yesterday, I don’t properly appreciate fudge. Instead, I’m going to let one of you appreciate some of Send Fudge’s fudge! They agreed to let…

Trident/Stride Giveaway

I haven’t been a gum chewer since high school (hence the sparseness of gum reviews here), but mayhaps some of you chew and would care about this news? Trident and Stride are currently running a “Chew for the Loot” promo. Specially marked packs of those gums come with a chance to win $50. The promo…

Coconut M&M’s Giveaway

I reviewed Coconut M&M’s nearly a year ago. Apparently they’ve been popular enough to now be sold in larger-than-single-serve bags, an 11.8 oz medium bag and an 18.6 oz large bag. Mars’s kind PR people are giving me the chance to give a couple of lucky readers someĀ Coconut M&M’s of their own. To enter this…

Tic Tacs and Canadian Giveaway

Tic Tac Canada sent me a bunch of Tic Tacs to help promote theirĀ Fun Fresh Talent Search, a contest that asks Canadians to upload videos of themselves showing off their talents for a chance to star in a Tic Tac commercial and win $5k. I used to love Tic Tacs when I was a kid….

Green and Black’s Peanut + Giveaway

I got to try this Green and Black’s Peanut bar as a free sample from the company. They also sent along a Toffee and 70% Dark bar, but I’ve already reviewed those, so just the Peanut today. The wrapper calls it “milk chocolate with caramelized peanuts and a hint of sea salt” and bills the…

Twix Coconut – Updated with Giveaway!

Twix Coconut is the newest limited edition offering from the folks at Mars. It’s comprised of “creamy milk chocolate, crunchy cookie, [and] coconut flavored caramel.” Mine came as a free sample in a press pack inside a plastic coconut and with a tiny USB that I first thought was a fun-sized regular Twix bar. Hooray…

American Chocolate Week Giveaway

Did you know that this week (March 20-26) is American Chocolate Week? To help us celebrate, the National Confectioners Association (NCA) is sponsoring a giveaway on ZOMG, Candy!* They’ve just launched a new website, which looks like a good resource to learn more about how chocolate is made, where it comes from, and how to…
