National Licorice Day is on Saturday, April 12th. Why licorice only gets a day when peanut butter gets a whole month is beyond me. (Here are some more candy days.)
In recognition of this Red Vines contacted me a few weeks ago offering up some prize packages for Candy Blog readers. I’ll be giving FOUR (4) of these prizes away. (Rules below.)
Here’s what’s inside:
Original Red Twist Jars 4-LB x 1
Original Red Twist Trays x 3
Black Licorice Twist Tray x 1
Pink Strawberry Twist Tray x 1
Red Cherry Twist Tray x 1
Strawberry Sugar Free Vines x 1
Black Licorice Sugar Free Vines x 1
Plus you’ll also get a hat, tee shirt, sticker, water bottle and three temporary tattoos!
So, if you’re a Red Vines lover (or haven’t tried it before and would like to experience a representation of their line of products) just follow these simple directions:Answer the following question by leaving a comment: Do you think Red Licorice should be called licorice at all, since it doesn’t actually have any licorice in it?
Leave a real working email address. I will not share this with anyone, but I will need to contact you if you’re the winner. If I don’t hear back from you in 72 hours after notifying you that you’ve won, I’ll draw a new winner. Winning packages will be shipped directly from the Red Vines folks.
Don’t click the “get updates to comments” or else you’ll get hundreds of updates. (If you do it accidentally, there’s an unsubscribe at the end of each email.)
All entries must be received by April 12th, 2008 at 10 AM Pacific.
There is no geographic restriction on this one! One winner can be from outside the US, so please leave your country in the Location field of your entry comment. (You may be responsible for tariffs or taxes for gift items shipped to you, depending on how your government operates.)
Winners will be drawn randomly from all eligible entries (so there is no right answer but I’m interested to hear opinions).
Feel free to encourage your friends to enter (because they’re your friends, they’d share, right?) but getting this listed on sweepstakes/contest websites only lowers everyone’s odds. (I like to think of these giveaways as a bonus to readers, not a way to boost traffic on the site.)
If these odds aren’t good enough for you, Red Vines is also running a contest on their website, too for actual scholarship or travel money.
(Other fine print: Red Vines are made with wheat and are not suitable for those with wheat/gluten sensitivities. Above photo was provided by Red Vines, not taken by me.)
UPDATE: Four lucky winners were drawn and their packages shipped out this week. They should have them in their hot little hands right now. The winners were Tara, Shelley, Kim & Paul. Congratulations!
