Block Hop Party Giveaway!

When I saw the info on this upcoming party, I immediately wanted to join in. But what in the world to give away I ask myself? I really don't have an over abundance of stuff and not much time at the moment to shop for something really cool that others would clammer for. Well it didn't take long for the light bulb to go off in my head with the perfect idea and I signed up for the party post haste. I kept chuckling to myself (I tend to do that at times) about how this particular give away might become very popular indeed.

I'm sure that I am going to really perk up your interest with my Block Hop Party Give-Away. Why might you ask? Well...because I'm not giving away something quilty or crafty. I'm giving away something a bit more luscious and decadent!
You see I have this terrific long time friend over at Sundaes Best Hot Fudge Sauce Company and she makes the very best hot fudge sauce on the planet. And I'm not just saying that because she is a friend. I'm saying it because this stuff is THAT good. Seriously yummy! Just ask Madame Samm. She and her hubby have been recently enjoying some of the wonderful flavors and can attest to their incredibleness. They are made with honest to goodness wholesome things such as real butter, half and half, sugar and tons of chocolate. No corn syrup allowed anywhere near here.

So for all my readers, new and not so new (though since this blog is still an infant everyone is basically a new reader), I'm giving away a set of (3) 8 oz jars of these scrumptious sauces. You get to choose which flavor. Original (plain chocolate), Raspberry, Peanut Butter, Hazelnut, Java, Orange, Cherry, Mint, Almond or Caramel.

What do you need to do if you win? I'm sure you are dying to know. Well....here are the details.

1. Become a follower here and tell me which is your favorite Crayola crayon color. Did you know that there are 120 current colors? You can find the list here. Mine has always been Periwinkle.

2. For another chance to win, tell me what you would put this sauce on, besides ice cream of course. I've eaten it on many things and I'm curious what you might try it on.

2. And for yet another chance to win, become a follower on Katie's blog. Yes I will be checking. Make sure you tell me that you did.

So each of you has 3 chances to be the luck recipient of this bounty. You have until midnight on December 17th to enter. One entry per URL (not email address). Duplicate entries will be deleted. I want to spread the hot fudge love to as many people as possible. The winner will be drawn on Sunday the 18th.

Though I would love to have international readers and give them the chance to win too, this stuff is heavy and way expensive to ship overseas (plus the customs nightmare over food items in many countries can be very sticky) so the giveaway is unfortunately only open to folks in the continental US. Sorry.  But I hope you will consider becoming a reader anyway. Who knows what sorts of fun giveaways I might do in the future.

If you are looking for a really wonderful gift for your child's teacher, your mail person, or practically anyone, you might want to consider giving them some of Katie's hot fudge sauce. Or you might just want to keep it all for yourself! Hehehe. I honestly wouldn't blame you but it isn't any fun if you don't tell everybody about this stuff. Good things are well worth sharing.

Good luck to all of you and don't forget to check out all the other wonderful blogs at this virtual party! I know I will. I'm always up for finding new great reads and entering for a chance to win something great.

Missy said...

I am now a follower. My favorite crayon color has always been red. When I was very small and first learned to color, I would only use the red crayon and would color the entire page with it : )

Missy said...

What else besides ice cream IS there for hot fudge sauce?? Well I might try it on a pancake..or maybe dip strawberries or other fruit in it..hmm how about dipping some shortbread cookies in hot fudge, what could be bad about that? You could also use it in place of frosting on cake or brownies...ooh the caramel would be good on brownies, wouldn't it! and I bet the very best way to eat it would be just to get a spoon, sit down, open the jar and start eating it ;)

SewLindaAnn said...

Follower Yes (newbie). Fave crayon color is Aquamarine Blue. I always keep a large box of crayons around, I love them!

SewLindaAnn said...

I would probably go with the Almond or Cherry Sauce. I would spread some butter on bread and grill it in a pan like a grilled cheese only with marshmallows and cinnamon and the sauce for a dessert.

SewLindaAnn said...

I'm a Follower on her blog and signed up for the Newsletter and Liked them on Facebook (I commented that you sent me) The flavors sound amazing.

You want me to pick my favorite color out of 120 colors? Girl, I have trouble picking my favorite from 10 colors. I'm guessing it would be one of the yellows, or a purple, maybe an orange or rust. You see? Too many colors to choose. Your sauce sounds sumptuous! I wonder how it'd be on popcorn? Or maybe on a brownie, topped then with ice cream? I'd have to experiment and would definitely share. Thanks for your generous offer. Quilted blessings, Nita

Desi @ Wee Share said...

oh my -- what looks so yummy!!

I used to say it was sunshine yellow, but I new that wasn't a color, it just sounded like a good color :)

I like red orange

My favorite crayon color is Red.

Judith said...

Hmmm, chocolate sauce on ANYTHING.
But, first it would be a banana split with strawberries, wet walnuts, pineapple. I would also warm up the sauce and let it drip and drizzle on everything... I forgot marshmellow, too.
(When I was young I made Sundaes at the local dairy bar - I used to wear chocolate sauce)

Mary C said...

I am a follower and my favorite color is brick red. I can use it with so many other colors. In fact, in my previous home, I had a wall in my kitchen painted brick red. LOVED IT!

Mary C said...

I would eat the chocolate sauce right out of the jar--oh, oh, I said that in public! :-)

Cedar Ridge Studio said...

My favorite crayon in lime green.
I would put these sauces on Cheesecake Factory cheese cake. In face we are having that and ice cream for Christmas dinner.
Perfect timing

Judi said...

Can't believe they don't have one called turquoise. I guess Cerulean is the closest I'll come. The hot fudge sounds amazing! Hope I get to try it!!
