Summer 2008 Candy Giveaway!

I’ve got forums and you want candy.

So let’s make a deal: simply register and create a profile on the new Candy Forums between now and July 15, 2008 and you’ll be eligible to win an exceptional package of summer-safe candies shipped right to your door.


It may include (depending on your tastes):

  • Soft Now and Later
  • Cinnamon Fire Jolly Ranchers
  • Necco Wafers
  • Pink Grapefruit Mentos
  • LifeSavers 5 Flavor Rolls
  • Barley Sugar Lollipops
  • Starburst Gummibursts
  • Skittles Carnival Flavors (yes, I have a stash!)
  • Dutch Licorice Assortment
  • Giant Tootsie Pops & Blow Pops
  • Sugar Free goodies (if it suits you)
  • And whatever else I may have hanging around that you might fancy. I guarantee at least 5 lbs of candy to one new forum member! Should there be more than 200 new registrations before July 15th, I’ll add another prize package, so tell your friends! Candy shipping can only be done in the US & Canada ... however if the winner is not in North America, I think we can work out a prize package (a gift certificate to an online candy shop in your area).

    So just go to and register. Be sure to fill in at least some of your profile with your general location and chose a zippy avatar (I created 50 default ones to chose from). You can also add a photo (I even added one to mine), tell everyone a little about yourself and link to your website.

    As grows I’ll be adding features and it will get a top to bottom redesign with special candy themed profile pages, but I was so excited to start the community this summer. This way you can give feedback on what you want and it will become some place special for all of us.

    UPDATE 7/6/2008: Looks like there are over 200 members now! This means the giveaway has rolled over and there are now two prize packages! (Still to be drawn at random from eligible members, and by eligible I mean you can’t be married to me or one of my siblings.)

    3. They say as we get older our sweet tooth needs to be calmed down with something sweet.  My sweet tooth told me that I like all types of candy. I would be   greatly satisfied with what you send.

      Ooh. I find the idea of a Candy Blog forum terribly exciting. I just singed up, but it’s late, so reading will happen tomorrow.

      What I wouldn’t give for grapefruit Mentos. Barley pops sound intriguing, too.

      Philly - I did pick two winners, though only one has gotten back to me so far. (So I was waiting until I’d heard from both to announce.)
