This Week in Candy - Deadlines & Winners

Posting was a little light this week as I have visitors in town.

  • If you’re interested in a little behind the scenes for candy sellers, here’s a video about, run by Christopher Pratt. The video is part of a contest Yahoo Search Marketing is running, kind of like “American Idol” for internet retailers. There are some other interesting videos & products mentioned and how they sell on the web, including Crooked Houses and Alpha Grip (it’s like a keyboard in the shape of a video game controller). Of course it’d be cool if CandyWarehouse won (full disclosure, I take photos for their website and they often advertise on Candy Blog) ... so stop by and vote if you have a moment. Voting ends Sunday night.

  • The long-awaited announcement of the winner of the Elvis Cups giveaway is Lisa (comment #101)! This was the second draw, the winner of the first drawing I did never responded to my emails. Five Banana Creme and Peanut Butter Cups will be ambling their way to her this week!

  • Monday, June 25th is the deadline for feedback to the FDA on the Don’t Mess with our Chocolate campaign. If you haven’t taken the chance to tell the FDA how you feel about the purity and continuity of your food, read up on it here and here.

  • I Heart Candy is over at YumSugar and the list of of sweets lovin’ posts is extensive! Have a look. I heart these posts: Bertie Bott’s Jelly Bean Roulette (a fun game for summer camp) and the pure simplicity of Pretzels + Kisses + M&Ms.

    Here’s the recap of Candy Blog reviews this week:

    Monday: Skittles from the UK (8 out of 10)

    Tuesday: Good & Plenty Fresh from the Factory (9 out of 10)

    Wednesday: Twisted Energy Bar versus Take 5 (2 out of 10 & 9 out of 10)

    Weekly Average: 7.33 ... 33% chocolate content.

    1. I won a pair of Elvis sunglasses and typed in the address to claim my prize and a Reeces furniture company keeps coming up.
      What’s up with that??
