January Giveaway......Sluggy's Favorite Things

Ok Folks, this is the first Sluggy's Boring Blog Box Giveaway for 2016.

Since it's My Birthday,  it's a special giveaway box a la Oprah, full of Things Sluggy Loves!
Besides the things I love there are special things I have gathered in my various travels in the last couple of years.

Here is what you can win if your entry is picked---

1 Bag of Hershey's Dark Chocolate Pieces
1 Christmas Tin of Lindt Truffles
1 Jar of my Homemade Pepper Relish
1 Plastic Commemorative Cup from the Mudbug Madness Festival in Shreveport, LA
1 Box of Apple Candy from Western VA
1 Duck Call from DC Ducks Amphibious Boat Tours Washington DC
1 Pencil from Moundville Archealogical Park Moundville, AL
1 Magnetic Shopping List Pad
1 Slimey Glue Slug from UC Santa Cruz, CA
1 Postcard from Big Walker Lookout in Wytheville VA
1 Pair of Wild Bryde Wolf Pierced Earrings
1 2000 Olympic Keychain from Australia Summer Games(sent to me in 2000 by a friend from New Zealand)
1 Root Beer flavored Sprecher's Brewery Lip Balm from Milwaukee, WI
1 Package of Root Beer Fizzies Drink Tablets from Hoover, AL
1 Hand Painted Ceramic Bunny pulling a Wagon of Easter Eggs trinket box made by me

I'll leave this giveaway open until Sunday, February 7th, at 11:59pm Eastern Time, so that gives everyone a full week+ to enter this one.  The next day I'll put all the valid entries into a container and draw out a name and that person wins.

You may get ONE ENTRY every day by leaving a comment on this blog post until the Giveaway ends.
Tell me what here is the things you most want to win in your comment or tell me what you think about the upcoming US presidential election(that one should be good for a laugh or two, right?lol).

  Disclaimer--This giveaway is open to those with mailing addresses within the US or Canada only.
If you are in Canada, you will receive a smaller box of goodies, as the shipping rates internationally are ridiculous and I am not taking out a mortgage on my house to pay to ship this stuff.  ;-)

If you need this shipped to Canada, I'll have to change the box and it's contents a bit.  I can ship a plain box weighing up to 3lbs. via 1st class mail, which, while much more than the flat rate Priority to US addys, is still affordable.  These prize boxes usually weigh 7 or more lbs. when full, so if the winner is in Canada, I'll let them pick and choose which of the items they prefer sent in their box, until the box weighs 3lbs.  I hate to have to do this(not ship ALL prizes to them)but I would hate it even more to exclude them totally from entering the giveaway.

Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you in your comment.  If you're not a registered Blogger User with your contact information on your User page, please put your email addy in your comment or email me your email addy privately when you leave a comment so I can get ahold of you if you win. If your Blogger associated user profile is a GOOGLE one with those Google Circles nonsense I CAN NOT CONTACT YOU as Google Circles doesn't show your contact info.  I again had to disqualify some entrants in the last giveaway because their profile is linked through Google and not Blogger.  Please check your profile!  And if you ARE entering through a Blogger profile PLEASE have contact info(email addy)in that profile.  If I can't access your email addy I can't contact you so email me your email addy or add your email address to your User Profile.

If I can't contact you then you can't win.  I have had to disqualify more readers than I care to due to this issue and I sure don't want it to happen again.  Thanks!

So let's get this started!



  1. This is a great giveaway. I love root beer so the lip balm and fizzies look delicious! I also need more Easter decorations since I lost all of
    mine in a flood two years ago.

  2. More chocolate please and pepper relish yum!

  3. What a great Birthday Giveaway Box!! Wouldn't mind having it sent my way!! :)

  4. Chocolate, chocolate please!!! About our next president, all I can say is WOW!


  5. What a fun giveaway box. Enter me please. Pepper relish, yum.

  6. Such a great giveaway Sluggy. I love the Lindt chocolates. They are so good! :)

  7. Happy 39th birthday LOL or is 49th? As for me I am a proud 68!

  8. Sign me up!!!! I'm out of your salsa!!!!
    As for the next president... I want one that agrees with me 100% but she/he hasn't shown their mug yet.

  9. OK, the Fizzies from Hoover came from the burb just south of mine. When I was a kid we would have contests to see who could keep the Fizzie in their mouth the longest. I never won but did look like a rabid dog before I surrendered. Now I am wondering where the heck to find them. I would like to challenge TheHub to a Fizzie duel!
    BTW next time you are in the Birmingham area let me know. I know the really good places to eat and am always up for a meal out!

  10. I had no idea Fizzies were still for sale. I remember buying them at the Five & Dime store in my grandmothers tiny town. Grape and root beer were my favorites,
    Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway!

  11. sign me up again!!! Fizzies... hmmm.

  12. Chocolate of course, happy Birthday, mine was January also.
