SWEET! A GIVEAWAY OF THE SWEETEST SORT.
This might just be a mean post. I mean, if I post something that is absolutely delicious, tell you that you should try it, and then tell you that it's probably not available where you live that is just cruel right? Well, sorry. This needs to be said, shouted from candy coated roof tops even! If you like red licorice (I'm talking red vines people, or red ropes even, you know the kind you used to got at the snack bar during your brother's baseball games when you were a kid), and who doesn't, then you will love this. I know I do. My kids do. My husband does. And so does everyone else I've introduced it to (and you know I like to share a good thing). Okay so here it is, the candy you've all been waiting for, and the candy I can only get during this season of the year:
Red Licorice Taffy
Red Licorice Taffy, What? Oh man, this stuff is so good. Every year (okay so I just discovered this last summer, but I'm assuming it's been around for a while) around this time (Summer) at our local grocery store called Smith's they put this stuff out by the bin full. It's made by a local Salt Lake City candy maker called Sweet's. You can actually order it online, so I'm not being that mean (oh and there are tons of other flavors, but this is my favorite). And you should order it online. But wait! Leave me a comment telling me why you need (I'm not talking wants, I'm talking needs here people) to try this, and I'll send a bag full to one lucky commenter. There will be no random.org this time around, I'm going to pick the person who I think needs to try this candy the most. And I'm spending my own money on this, Sweet's doesn't know I even exist, but if they did I think they'd think I was pretty sweet myself, don't you?
*Man, you guys are breaking my heart, this is going to be a tough choice! I would pick all of you if I could. I just realized that I didn't set a close time, so keep entering the giveaway until Saturday (June 5) afternoonish. I'll pick a winner then.*
