Valentine's giveaway: Win a tower of Fannie May chocolates



I've said it before, I'll say it again: You guys deserve treats, I like giving away stuff, it's all good. Today, I'm sending out some love courtesy of Fannie May chocolates. Not to be confused with the Fannie Mae mortgage company, which probably doesn't taste very good. Two readers will each win a True Love Valentine Tower, worth $55. It includes a pound of Mint Meltaways, one half pound of Pixies (chocolates with caramel and pecans), a half pound of Trinidads (toasted coconut and chocolate), and 6 pink-frosted heart shapped sugar cookies. In a word, yum.

To enter, tell me which piece of chocolate you inevitably reach for in the box, or hope you're getting. Me, I'll eat anything with coconut. You could pretty much coat a piece of cardboard in coconut and I'd eat it. Note, you absolutely have to leave your e-mail if yours is not on your blog or website, as I have not yet gotten the ESP thing down pat.

BONUS ENTRIES: After you leave your main comment, leave a separate comment for each of the following that you have done:

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed.

  1. The Mint Meltaways - I LOVE mint and chocolate!! :) If there were chocolate covered almonds, though, they would win hands down. That is my all time favorite chocolate covered delight. :0)

    Mmmm...chocolate!
