Sarris Candy Giveaway

by on December 14, 2010 · 176 comments

Congratulations to Jenny Lee who won my last giveaway. And good news! Here’s another chance to win some fine quality chocolate. This time, from Pennsylvania’s family-run chocolate company Sarris Candies.

As the story goes, Frank Sarris was in love with Athena and gave her some chocolate. She was so happy that Frank wanted to keep her that way and decided he could make chocolate that was even better. From that point on, he began making chocolate in the basement for family and friends. Word spread and he found a local market. Pretty soon, Frank and Athena were married and Sarris Candies was born.  By 1963, they outgrew the basement, the business kept growing, and family members pitched in to build a business that is now a Canonsburg, PA landmark. The Sarris Chocolate Factory and Ice Cream Parlour fill the area the size of a football field with chocolate, penny candy, ice cream and plush toys.

Their on-line presence is growing as well, with a fun-to-browse mail-order site and Sarris Candy Recipe page with recipes from Candace Sarris, who loves to bake.

After reading Yelp reviews and doing a little research on Sarris, I’m kind of sad I didn’t pick any up while I was in PA. However, I did get a chance to host this giveaway and am happy to say Sarris is offering a lucky reader

– a 1 pound deluxe assortment AND
– 8 oz of milk chocolate pretzels

For a chance at the giveaway, visit the Sarris Candies web page, then come back and tell me one thing you would like to receive as a gift (no need to add a link to it).

Me, I would like my own personal chocolate fountain. I had no idea you could buy small ones and I think that would really impress people who came over for dinner.

The deadline for this giveaway is this Friday (Dec. 17th) at midnight.

I would pick the “tier Gold” because it has a variety and lots of good treats to try.

k December 16, 2010 at 11:16 am

I would choose the pick your own assortment, so that I could assemble all of my husband’s dark chocolate favorites in one box (cherries, black walnuts, dates, raspberry creams, pecanettes especially) then give it to him as a present. If I were to be VERY good, I might even tempt him into sharing. :)

Lindsay December 16, 2010 at 12:20 pm

The Peanut Butter Meltaway Gold Bar is calling my name! Mmmmm

jessie December 16, 2010 at 2:44 pm

The tier gold gift tower looks good to me!

They all look yummy, but if I had to pick one item it would have to be the caramels!

I would just die for the VIP assortment- or any assortment really!! I’ve always wanted to try them- It would make Christmas so much better!! :)

I would love a chocolate fountain too. It would be great for the holidays!!

chocolate covered oreos!

Tara December 23, 2010 at 8:29 pm

I know the giveaway is over but I have to say, if you ever do stop at Sarris do NOT attempt to finish one of their ice cream sundaes. We ordered the small ones and it still came with 3 very decadent scoops! But soooo good! We live shy of 2 hours straight south of Sarris.

I had been away from the blog world for a while since my lappy was out of commission and, ironically enough, I just had my first Sarris chocolate covered pretzel at my neighbor’s house tonight!

The Christmas Oreos look absolutely delicious!
