Giveaway: Wonka Candy for Halloween

by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on October 14, 2011

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!

CathyK October 14, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Reeces Peanut Butter cups always remind me of Halloween…but really any choclolate!

Heather October 14, 2011 at 8:58 pm

Anything chocolate! Twix and Milky Way are scrounged first :)

Sonja Hanselman October 14, 2011 at 9:15 pm

Tootsie rolls are my favorite.

JoannaTopazT October 14, 2011 at 10:59 pm

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)

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.

Sara October 15, 2011 at 8:28 am

It’s a toss-up for me between Almond Joys and Nerds.

Tanya October 15, 2011 at 8:32 am

I love chocolate… the kids love to get a can of pop!

Beth @ TheAngelForever October 15, 2011 at 9:10 am

I love PB cups, but when I was in elementary school I adored Nerds. Thanks for the fun :)

Reese’s Peanut Butter cups,!

Karina House October 15, 2011 at 10:05 am

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.

Susan Johnson October 15, 2011 at 11:22 am

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..)

Donna October 15, 2011 at 12:12 pm

DaphneR October 17, 2011 at 11:41 pm

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.

Christy Behnke October 18, 2011 at 5:58 am

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

Laura October 18, 2011 at 9:50 am

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 :-)

Linda October 18, 2011 at 10:32 am
