Maple Sugar Candy Giveaway

Just leave a comment on this post to try to win this box of 12 small maple sugar candies freshly made by a local sugar house. If you are chosen, a little bit of New England will arrive in your mailbox.

If you can't eat sugar, this would make a lovely gift for someone who can.

Anyone can play, even if you don't usually leave comments, leave one now if you wish.!!!!

On Friday morning I will write the names of all who have commented on slips of paper and put them in a hat. Then Mom can choose one. I will contact the winner via their blog. GOOD LUCK :)

Ohhh, Suki! This is so delightful and fun! I ADORE Maple Sugar Candy! Andrea...it is lovely and just melts on your tongue. Just the tiniest nibble will do the trick, too!

So Suki...do you work a sugar house?

This is a lovely idea, thank you!

As Kim says, a teeny bit of candy gives a huge whack of sugar high. It does melt on the tongue, esp when freshly made. I tried a piece yesterday out of the box I bought for myself just to make sure it was fresh and melty and yummmmmm is right!

Kim no I don't work in a sugar house. But the local sugar maple people do tap some of the trees on my mom's land.

Yummy! :)

Lynn said...

Okay, sign me up! I would love to see the looks on the faces of my little three year old grandchildren as they lick the taste of delight from these little maple leaves. I bet they'd say they taste like pancakes! ;-)
How sweet of you to give away a box of this delightful maple product.

This is a mouthwatering invitation Suki! Although after my cleanse I try to refrain from eating sweets this is too tempting......

Karen said...

oooh, yum! sign me up, please!

Thanks for your kind words on my blog--I know, I'm very lucky to have such a nice space for my studio--it's a long ways from when I really WAS 'art in the garage'!

Cris in Oregon said...

I was here earlier this morning and thought I left a comment but I guess it didnt take. I had to check to make sure my last one did take. Looks like the last one took wonder why that happens. argh

Annie said...

Suki, it's quite clear by this post that you have a generous spirit.

sixty-five said...

Thanks for visiting me! I found you via your comment on Elizabeth's Marrakesh blog. Of course I meant "food" group, not good group. Yes, it's wonderfully easy for me to get to NYC - a five minute walk to the corner, hop on the train, 30 min to Penn Station, all for a $2 "senior" fare. Just have to remember to do it.

Patti said...

Yummo! Thanks Suki I've never tried anything made with maple sugar. So glad your Mom is doing well.

human being said...

Mmmmmm
Suki, you are so kind and giving!
Sure I love to have these yummy 'sweeties', but if by any chance my name came out of the hat, I would happily give them to Lynn's lovely grandchildren. Iran is very far from US(the cost would be high), and I'm not very sure of our post! I may never get them!
:D

Sara said...

Clevelandgirlie said...

Oh yumm. I haven't had candy like this since I was a little girl. This was quite popular in Ohio where I grew up. I'll keep my fingers crossed! I think Andrea has a sweet tooth!!

What a lovely picture for your header. The colors are so vivid, at first I wasn't sure if it was a photograph or a painting.

Love them. Haven't had them for a long time.

Reading Matters is just cutting down on her blogging due to work obligations.

She seems to post on the weekends only.

sukipoet said...

How Do We Know sure you can participate.

Clevelandgirlie I wish I could paint like the photo!

Oh, those look wicked. I had some a few years ago at St. Jacob's, as many of the Mennonite farmers sell them. Did you MAKE these yourself?

sukipoet said...

Kikipotamus these were made at the sugar house.
