If Someone You LOVE Loves SMARTIES, Don't Miss This Giveaway!



For me, very few candies can evoke such sweet childhood memories the same way Smarties do. It's the whole experience -- the satisfying crinkle of the wrapper when you twist it open; the cheery pastel colors; and the way the dimpled candies dissolve with a perfect balance of sweet and tart at first bite.
Did you know that Smarties has been family owned and operated (in Union, NJ) since 1949? 
Last week, I had the opportunity to create an original Valentines Day treat featuring this classic nostalgia candy: OWL VALENTINES with a free printable.


And now, Rook No. 17 readers (and fellow Smarties aficionados) have an opportunity to win a Smarties Prize Pack of their own that includes:


· 1 Theater box Smarties
· 1 bag Original Smarties
· 1 bag Tropical Smarties
· 1 bag X-Treme Sour Smarties
· 1 bag Smarties in a Pouch
· 1 bag Smarties Love Hearts

GIVEAWAY
One lucky Rook No. 17 reader will be chosen in a random drawing, using random.org, on Tuesday, February 7, to receive the prize package listed above.

Mandatory for your FIRST entry (a single comment)
1)  "Follow" Rook No. 17 with Google Friends Connect (click "Follow" under "Birds of a Feather" on the left-hand sidebar). 

If you have a "no-reply" account, be sure to leave your email address, so I can contact you if you win.

Disclosure: (Written while on a Love Heart induced sugar high) I received a complimentary box of assorted Smarties candies for my participation in the #IMASmartie Campaign through Collective Bias.  Being a lifelong fan of Smarties, this generous gift was pure bliss!
