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 purchase a box of dark chocolate truffles. They are true godliness.

Barbara December 13, 2010 at 5:12 pm

There is nothing I love more than solid milk chocolate, so I personally would love any of their novelties, most of which seem to be just good ol’ shaped milk chocolate that I would be so tempted to sink my teeth into! NOM!!

JoanS December 13, 2010 at 5:30 pm

All of their stuff looks wonderful. I’d never heard of these candies until I read your page. But looking through their catalog, I’d love anything off their sugar-free page!!

Laura E. December 13, 2010 at 5:35 pm

I would want a custom box of chocolates but I would have to get my mom the Crocs!

Jane December 13, 2010 at 5:36 pm

I had Sarris chocolates several years ago on a trip to Pittsburgh. It was delicious! I am torn between the chocolate covered pretzels and the peanut butter meltaways. Actually, I can make my own chocolate covered pretzels, so I’d choose the meltaways. :)

Fallon December 13, 2010 at 5:38 pm

A box full of dark chocolates. MMM!

Kristen December 13, 2010 at 5:50 pm

I think the S’mores look fabulous! The custom box would be fun too–that way I could try a little bit of everything!

Cheryl R December 13, 2010 at 6:23 pm

It’s a toss-up between the Butter Almond Toffee and the Pecanettes.

Sherry December 13, 2010 at 6:31 pm

Can I agree with you? ‘Cause I TOTALLY would love a chocolate fountain!!

Angela December 13, 2010 at 6:34 pm

The chocolate fountain with dark chocolate- without a shadow of a doubt!

Heather K December 13, 2010 at 7:47 pm

I love Sarris! I live pretty close and their chocolate covered pretzels are my favorite. They used to have this sundae that had around 12 scoops of ice cream, and my parents took us all to split 2 of these sundaes. I think I would want to try their baking chocolate since I’ve had most of the other chocolates.

Allison December 13, 2010 at 8:46 pm

A box of caramels, no question!

Jillian December 13, 2010 at 8:49 pm

chris December 13, 2010 at 9:15 pm

I would love the fruit and nut assortment.

Melissa December 13, 2010 at 9:17 pm

I live in central PA, very close to Hershey. I used to live in Pittsburgh, which is very close the home town of Sarris. I NEVER passed up an opportunity to order from kids doing fundraisers. I LOVE their chocolate covered pretzels, especially dipping them into ice cream. Yum.

Lyssa December 13, 2010 at 9:19 pm

Sarris makes the best peanut butter meltaways…so creamy and they really do melt in your mouth!

Emily December 13, 2010 at 9:21 pm

I would definitely go for the all dark assortment. mmm…

Judy December 13, 2010 at 9:22 pm

Jenny December 13, 2010 at 10:12 pm

Carolyn December 13, 2010 at 10:38 pm

The Deep Dark Chocolate Cheesecake for sure!

Jacqie December 14, 2010 at 12:32 am

The Cappucino Meltaways are at the top of my very long list.

Hannah December 14, 2010 at 2:31 am

Oh my gosh, I about died when I saw those adorable little Crocs & flip flops!! So stinkin’ cute! Probably too cute to eat, though.

So…if I had to pick, I’d go with the VIP 2 1/2 ft. long tray of assorted chocolates. Would probably be my breakfast, lunch & dinner the day I got it. Or maybe just a mid-afternoon snack; I can PUT AWAY some serious chocolate, yo!

Mary Jane December 14, 2010 at 6:31 am

Ohhh, so many choices, all yummy! But, since ’tis the season, how about Christmas oreos???

Rebecca Eitelberg December 14, 2010 at 7:36 am

Well, one of each! But if I really had to choose, I would just love the Executive 3lb assortment. I can eat my weight in chocoloate. Bring it on!!

Mary Lynn December 14, 2010 at 7:38 am

We love the Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels. Sarris is our home town favorite.

CaSaundra December 14, 2010 at 7:48 am

Chocolate covered pretzels for sure!! :-)

Tierney M. December 14, 2010 at 8:05 am

Either a custom box of mixed dark chocolates or the chocolate covered pretzels – YUMMMMY!!!!

Robyn December 14, 2010 at 8:06 am

3-lb Executive Deluxe Assortment, of course! Then I’d have to have a party to share it. YUM!

leann December 14, 2010 at 8:06 am


Ashley December 14, 2010 at 8:22 am

I would love the ‘For your Health Dark Chocolate’ YUM!

Emily December 14, 2010 at 9:42 am

I think I would love to receive the sugar free assortment of candies so I can share them with my diabetic sister and father! I always feel guilty when I bake because I can’t tell them about it with feeling like I’m rubbing it in their face!

Pam December 14, 2010 at 10:09 am

Anything in the catalog would float my boat! Chocolate covered pretzels would be great.

Rodzilla December 14, 2010 at 10:20 am

PB meltaways are a classic, but I’m really intrigued by PB&J meltaways.

Amy December 14, 2010 at 10:20 am

I’d want the All Dark Assortment :)

Kathy A... December 14, 2010 at 10:48 am

I have to agree with you there… the chocolate fountain would be awesome for sure.
