Fab Freebie: Trick Or Sweet!

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – see who won!***

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween! The two folks getting an extra candy fix (thanks to random.org’s choosing) are… Johanna (who loves Rolos) and Clare @ Fitting It All In (who’s an M&M addict). And the winner of a pair of tickets to our local R.Home For the Holidays event on Nov 16th, featuring a presentation by Grace Bonney, is… Randa! Congrats everyone!

Since we can’t giveaway goblins or ghosts, we’re celebrating Halloween with a candy-tastic giveaway instead. No costume wearing or door knocking required. The prize comes from our favorite local candy shop, Sweet Spot. Their store is not only designed in a super fun way, but it’s stocked with tons of goodies – including those classic childhood candies you just can’t seem to find anymore. Along with (my personal favorite) over 50 flavors of soda.

So the Sweet Spot folks put together three themed baskets for our winners to choose from. Below’s just a sampling of the type of candies that you’ll find in each basket, which are all stocked with $50 worth of yummy stuff.

  • PRIZE: One candy basket of your choosing from Sweet Spot (the Retro Candy Basket, the Specialty Chocolate Basket, or the Spooky Halloween Basket).
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “TRICK OR TREAT!” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: …what your all time favorite candy is. Reese’s cups? Skittles? Starbursts? I could go on and on…. so I will. Butterfingers? Peanut M&Ms? Black licorice? Ring pops? Razzles? Nerds? York Peppermint Patties?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, November 2 at 8pm EST
  • PRIZE SHIPS: The 48 contiguous United States
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winners will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here on Thursday for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…


But wait, there’s more! We’ve got an extra prize available to anyone in the Richmond area. Local shelter mag R.Home is again hosting their annual R.Home For the Holidays event in two weeks (Nov 16)  and we’ve got one pair of tickets to give away. This daytime event includes design seminars, lunch, and a talk by Design*Sponge founder (and Virginia native!) Grace Bonney. We’re excited to finally meet her – and any of you that join us at the event!

Please only enter this bonus contest if you are available to attend from 10am to 1:30pm on Wednesday, November 16th here in VA at Plant Zero (you win two tickets so you can bring a friend if you’d like). To enter, just include the phrase “TICKET ME” in your comment (yes, you can enter both contests in one comment). One winner will be selected from all of the entries containing “Ticket Me” along with two winners from any entries that say “Trick Or Treat” and all three lucky ladies or lads will be announced on Thursday.

Note: We aren’t paid or perked for hosting these giveaways, we just do ‘em to thank you awesome folks for stopping in. See our Giveaway FAQ page for more info. Pics courtesy of Sweet Spot, R Home Magazine and Design*Sponge.

    TRICK OR TREAT!! My all time favorite candy is Smarties, although they don’t seem AS good since I’m an adult, I swear they have changed them.

    Trick or Treat! :)

    I am not to be trusted with peanut butter cups or Almond Joy bars. If I’m at a movie theater, though, SweeTarts or Junior Mints.

    But I like Snickers bars and Butterfingers, too. Then there are the new pretzel M&Ms, which…seriously. And Heath bars, though I dated a weird guy named Heath once. Oh! Three Musketeers bars, the fun-sized ones, are awesome, and…


    I’ll just be over here in a diabetic coma. Don’t mind me…

    Anything and everything! I can’t decide! Chocolate is my go-to. My seasonal favorite is mellocreme pumpkins!

    TRICK OR TREAT!! Umm, I don’t discriminate when it comes to candy (unless it has coconut in it). I do love all the M&M varieties!

    My fave Halloween candy has to be Reese’s or anything Jolly Rancher (especially the cherry ones!).
