Giveaway: Wonka Candy for Halloween

How would you like to have Wonka “sponsor” your Halloween candy this year?

I was sent a couple of packages of Wonka’s spooky themed Laffy Taffy & Sweet Tart Gummies to try, as well as the chance to give 5 bags of candy to a lucky reader.  That’s 250 pieces of candy!

So what exactly would you be getting? Well there is the Howlin Laffy Taffy in Banana and Strawberry–with the prerequisite jokes printed on the inside of the wrapper (hence the “laffy” part of the name).  I actually remember first being introduced to Laffy Taffy when I was a kid and our parents took us to Disney World.  For some reason we bought Laffy Taffy as a snack at one of the stores and we kept cracking up over the silly jokes inside the wrapper.

The other item inside the bag are the SweetTarts Spooky Gummies.  I had never had these before, so of course I had to crack some open and try them out.  They are a sweet gummy with a sour “sugar” on the outside, formed into Halloween shapes like cats, bats, and pumpkins.

I thought they were pretty tasty!

So now you know what we’ll be handing out at the Frugal Upstate household this year (well, ok, we’ll have to supplement-we get a SERIOUS number of trick ‘o treaters since we live in the village on the main street and have lovely lit sidewalks.)

Now it’s your turn! How would  you like to win 5 bags of Wonka’s Spooky Halloween Candy?  This giveaway will run from today-October 14 through noon EST October 25th.

note:  I have the company’s assurance that once I receive the winner’s shipping info they will send the candy next day air on October 27th–so yes, you should have it in time for Halloween!

To enter, please tell me what your favorite Halloween candy is!  That’s it, uber simple!

And please, when you are done, consider swinging by the Wonka facebook page and giving it a “like”.  While you are at it, if you haven’t “liked” the Frugal Upstate Facebook page, make sure you do that too!

Good luck!

    My favorite Halloween candy will always be Mary Jane’s however, they are rarely found anymore! So no I have switched to Butterfingers! Happy Halloween!

    Another vote for Tootsie Rolls – the big, chunky ones. I also really like gummy candy, so I find the SweetTarts Gummies intriguing — haven’t tried them before.

    I have a soft spot for fun size snickers. Although I know those sour gummies would be a huge hit with two of the littles. I also love that laffy taffy has those jokes on them(although I personally am not a banana fan)

  4. Chad Stevens says

    The fun sized twizzlers for me, the kid’s love the halloween shaped suckers, skulls, pumpkins or any other scary shape. As a child I use to look forward to popcorn balls from my neighbor, but people don’t hand them out anymore.

  5. Karina House says

    I love jelly beans… oh, wait, wrong holiday. Why can’t they make halloween jelly beans? I’d have to say Twizzlers, because I can eat them without taking a milk digestant pill, even though I love chocolate more.

  6. Susan Johnson says

    I absolutely adore Banana Laffy Taffy…..have been known to pick all of them out of the bag and hide them….(bad Nanoo….I know..)

  7. DaphneR says

    My favorite will always be those peanut butter candies in the Black or Orange wrappers. I cant eat them now cuz of a brace I got on my bottom teeth.

  8. Christy Behnke says

    For me it’s a toss up between laffy taffy (LOVE banana) and tootsie rolls…I have such a sweet tooth!!

  9. Laura says

    When I was a kid, it was Milk Duds, but now that I’m older, I fear an outrageous dental bill if I break a tooth on one! So, I’d have to say the mini boxes of Junior Mints! Cool and refreshing :-)

  10. Julie says

    Favorite Halloween candy has got to be Kit Kat . . . I’d trade my siblings anything for them!

  11. Kathy says

    The candy for me on Halloween is candy corn. I love this candy but I only eat it during Halloween season. I love making popcorn balls with candy corn mixed in. Very festive:)

    my fav…Milky Ways. Or anything chocolate…Kit Kats too…l have to stop thinking about it now, l try really hard not to have any…poor me, no corn syrup allowed.
