January Giveaway #3 Something Decadent!


Moving forward.........
Let's make this month all about my readers and not me by holding THREE COUNT 'EM THREE GIVEAWAYS this Month!!!

These will be a little different(just like me lolz)and will NOT be an awesome collection of toiletries and such.

Third giveaway for January--

I think this is a decadent box of sinful stuff......ok, so maybe my sinful doesn't look like your sinful(and really, it's against the postal service to send you "SINFUL" things in the mail)but I wouldn't knock somebody down for wanting to send me almost 4 lbs. of CHOCOLATE CANDY!

Yep, that's what will be in this prize box.........





You'll receive all the chocolate pictured above.........

* 1 bag of Dove dark chocolate w/almonds
* 1 bag of Peanut M&Ms
* 3 large chocolate bars(Lindt white chocolate/peppermeint, Cadbury milk chocolate w/almonds, Lindt 90% Cocoa dark chocolate)
* 2 Russell Stover Xmas singles-1 peanut butter/1 marshmallow peppermint
* 14 single Hershey Gold bars
* 10 single Hershey Layer Crunch(5 mint/5 vanilla)
* 8 Lindor Gingerbread Truffles
* 6 Lindor milk chocolate/peppermint Truffles

And you get to choose which one of these bags of chocolate squares you want as well......


Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark w/milk Chocolate or Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark w/dark Chocolate.

And if the winner can't eat nuts/doesn't like dark or milk or peppermint/etc, we can change up what I put into the box(up to 4 lbs. worth)to something they like better. If you are dieting or predisposed to diabetes but still like a treat now and again, I also have Russell Stover sugar-free and Werther's candies in both reg. and sugar-free.  Believe me, I have LOTS of chocolate options right now. 8-)))

Now doesn't a big box of chocolate sound like a GREAT WAY to SURVIVE JANUARY/WINTER!?!?
It does to me..........


There is a limit of ONE ENTRY PER PERSON PER DAY for this Giveaway.  Come back every day and enter though!
Please tell me what brand or  type of chocolate is your favorite, what was the best chocolate you ever had(where/the occasion), what chocolate maker you'd like to visit, stuff like that, in your comments/entries.

You can also earn 1 additional Entry(one per giveaway)by blogging about this Giveaway on your own blog or on Facebook.  I need a link to that mention to check it, to make that entry valid.


I'll leave this giveaway open until Thursday, January 24th at 11:59 pm Eastern Time. On January 25th I'll mark all valid entries and use Random dotorg to pick a number and that corresponding person's entry wins.

*Please note the rules*
I'll post the name/ID of the winner on this blog on January 25th and that person has 48 hours from the time stamp on that post to contact me privately via email(my email addy is listed on my "About Me" page, as well as on my side bar).

If I am not contacted via email, I'll attempt to contact the winner via the email they supplied with their entry(or gave me to add to the Giveaway Data Base)and if that email is not responded to within another 48 hours I'll pick another winner.

Disclaimer--This giveaway is open to those with mailing addresses within the US only.  As the cost of postage to foreign countries has gotten too high I am sorry to say I can no longer afford to mail boxes outside the US.  These giveaways are not sponsored by any companies.  I pay for it all(the cost of items given away and the postage to mail it all)out of my own pocket.

***PLEASE NOTE***

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 a hold of you. 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.

If I can't contact you then you can't win.  I am still having to disqualify entries due to this issue and I sure don't like doing that.  Thanks!

So let's get the Birthday Giveaways started.  Good Luck to all!

  23. Prefer dark chocolate and anything with nuts

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don’t have one specific favorite brand. I lived in Germany for a while and every grocery store there had a big selection of chocolate bars. There were cheaper ones, but I ate them all and I never had one I thought tasted bad. Besides Lindt, I really liked two brands, Milka and Ritter Sport. Milka is a soft milk chocolate; they used to just have plain & with raisins & nuts. If I see one in the US I grab it, but don’t see often. It has a pretty lavender wrapper. Ritter Sport has many many different types. It has a square form & I have seen one or two types at Trader Joe’s, which makes sense since German owned.

    Somebody mentioned turtles - are they still available? Have not seen in a long time.
