It’s my birthday and YOU get the presents!

Candy Cake
Today, March 26, is my birthday. I won’t tell you how old I am but I don’t feel nearly as old as my driver’s license claims. To celebrate, I am giving you some candy. Two lucky readers get a package full of candy each. Candy companies have been sending us so much candy, I have to give away the extras or I’d be toothless and as big as a house.

So, to enter, you must be a registered Candy Addict user. Login, and post a comment on this post and wish me a happy birthday. That’s it. The best birthday wish will win a package full of good candy and a Candy Addict t-shirt. I’ll also choose a random comment to win a package full of candy (no t-shirt though).

Entries are only accepted for the 24 hours of March 26 (EST). Sorry, only open to residents of the United States (shipping is expensive).

UPDATE: Entries are no longer being accepted. Comment #66 was the last one to make the cut.

UPDATE #2: The winner was oakling for the ASCII art – I’m an old school computer geek at heart. The other winner was jessleighj

    Happy Birthday! This is my very first comment on your site, but I thought I should register and comment because your birthday is exactly ten days after mine! Go March Birthdays! As a starving college student, free stuff (especially candy) is greatly appreciated!

    Happy Happy Birthday! I hope you get lots of yummy candy. I also hope you’re older than me. I don’t know why, but I do. :)

    oakling says:

    Happy birthday indeed! Are you sure one package will be enough? Because it’s been my experience that when I write about this kind of stuff, people start using holidays to shower me with candy… resulting in even more to get rid of! ;)

    oh, it’s two packages! I didn’t think about what I was reading. Here’s my stab at “best birthday wish”… we’ll see if this thing can handle ascii art!

    This is one of the best candy review sites on the web. I honestly visit every day. All my friends find it weird that I am such a foodie because I am extremely underweight for my age and height (at 19 years and 5’8, I only weigh about 94 pounds). I can eat a whole bunch of candy and not gain weight. It’s great. This site is like porn for me. I swear; so a big basket of candy is WHAT I NEED. And who couldn’t use another t-shirt?

    So…

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIAN.

    I will now name a candy for each of the letters of your name:

    Butterfinger
    Rolo
    Idaho Spud
    Almond Joy
    Nutrageous

    (The “I” was tricky.)

    Happy Birthday CandyAddictBrian!
    just think, if this was the 1700′s you’d probably be dead by now(or have like 8 kids). Hooray not dead! Also, 16th century candies are nothing in comparison to our corn syrup and artificial flavored sweets. To sign the word CANDY in sign language make a #1 handshape with your right hand, put the tip of that pointer finger to your cheek and twist your wrist. Again, happy birthday now go eat some cake.

    impurealbatross says:

    I don’t think my last comment worked…so…

    Happy Birthday Brian!

    I will now use a candy to represent each letter of your name. Call it a gift.

    Butterfinger
    Reese’s Pieces
    Idaho Spud
    Almond Joy
    Nutrageous

    (The “I” was tricky.)

    Again, hope you have a “sweet” birthday, and by sweet I mean candy-filled and a great one!!!!!
    Oh, and since I can’t physically give you a cupcake or anything(i think we live too far apart from each other), I hope you enjoy these wonderful, rich yummy cupcakes( and even better than the real ones; you can imagine what kind of cupcakes they are, without the calories!!!):

    Jgarrett says:

    Thank you for sharing with everyone even on your birthday.
    I hope you have a wonderful birthday and that you never get cavities or anything else that would prohibit you from enjoying candy! Thank you again for everything!

    You are such a kind and giving person, you deserve a great big chocolate kiss, as soon as I find one (why are they hard to find?), I’ll send it.

    Until then since your birthday is on the 26th, I decided to gather 26 chocolate sayings:

    1. WHEN NO ONE UNDERSTANDS YOU, CHOCOLATE IS THERE.
    –SR. COCOA LOCO (aka Daniel Worona)

    2. I AM NOT OVERWEIGHT. I AM CHOCOLATE-ENRICHED.

    3. THE 12-STEP CHOCOHOLICS PROGRAM: NEVER BE MORE THAN 12 STEPS AWAY FROM CHOCOLATE!

    4. LIFE WITHOUT CHOCOLATE IS NO LIFE AT ALL.

    5. CHOCOLATE IS CHEAPER THAN THERAPY, AND YOU DON’T NEED AN APPOINTMENT.

    6. THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN A GOOD FRIEND, EXCEPT A GOOD FRIEND WITH CHOCOLATE.

    7. CHOCOLATE DOESN’T MAKE THE WORLD GO AROUND. BUT IT CERTAINLY MAKES THE TRIP WORTHWHILE.

    8. AND ON THE EIGHTH DAY GOD CREATED CHOCOLATE.

    9. IN HEAVEN, CHOCOLATE HAS NO CALORIES AND IS SERVED AS THE MAIN COURSE.

    10. THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE CHOCOLATE.

    11. Q. HOW MANY CALORIES ARE THERE IN A PIECE OF CHOCOLATE?
    A. WHO CARES?
    –Daniella “Cocoa Chanel” aka “Cocoa Chanelle”
    (Copyright Daniel Worona)

    12. SO MUCH CHOCOLATE. SO LITTLE TIME!

    13. IF THERE IS NO CHOCOLATE IN HEAVEN, I’M NOT GOING!

    14. I ONLY EAT CHOCOLATE FOR YOU, SO THERE WILL BE MORE OF ME TO LOVE.

    15. THE BEST OVER-THE-COUNTER PRESCRIPTION TO PERK YOU UP IS CHOCOLATE.

    16. DON’T SEND ME ROSES, UNLESS THEY ARE CHOCOLATE!

    17. THERE ARE TWO FOOD GROUPS: CHOCOLATE AND FRUIT. AND IF IT IS FRUIT, IT SHOULD BE DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE.

    18. THERE IS NO CHOCOLATE’S ANONYMOUS BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS TO QUIT.

    19. WHO SAYS CHOCOLATE ISN’T A FOOD GROUP!!

    20. ONE OF LIFE’S MYSTERIES IS HOW A TWO-POUND BOX OF CANDY CAN MAKE A PERSON GAIN FIVE POUNDS.

    21. LIFE IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES. . . FULL OF NUTS.

    22. THOSE CALORIE-FREE SWEETS TASTE GREAT DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE!

    23. I WOULD GIVE UP CHOCOLATE, BUT I’M NO QUITTER.

    24. MAN CANNOT LIVE BY CHOCOLATE ALONE, BUT IT SURE IS FUN TRYING.

    25. CHOCOLATE MILK: THE POOR MAN’S CHAMPAGNE.
    –Daniel Worona (aka SR. COCOA LOCO)

    26. BEWARE OF CHOCOLATE SQUARES!:
    A: SQUARE SWEETS MAKE YOU ROUND.

    B: SQUARE SWEETS MAKE BIG SEATS.
    –Daniel Worona (aka SR. COCOA LOCO)

    Happy Birthday Brian!!!

    Happy birthday, so now you’re one year older!
    Happy birthday, the world’s a little colder!
    Happy birthday, you did not accomplish much
    But you didn’t die this year
    I guess that’s good enough.
    HEY!

    Okay, so that third line is definitely not true, if only because of this blog existing since before this past year, but I can say pretty confidently that you did not die this year. (:

    May this year bring you endless bags of Skittles and M&Ms, so you never encounter that fateful moment when you think you have a few more in the bag and you reach in and realize you already ate the last one. (Yes I did snoop and check out your other sites.)

    Now please send me some candy. I can’t live without it.

    Happy Birthday, Brian.

    May your years be filled with tasty cola flavored candy that will never lead to any health problems.

    May your many many years left on this earth be filled with amazing and wonderful new Limited Editions and classic Awesomely Addictive favorites.

    May your healthy family and friends share, but not overly induldge in your new taste experiences (unless you want to keep it all to yourself which is totally fine).

    Yes, Happy Birthday, Brian, and may you and yours be blessed for many years to come.

    PS: No one ever said turning 29 multiple times was a bad thing. Turn 29 again gracefully. I am working on mine again, and I can’t wait until I turn 29 again next year and the year after that.

    Jeez…all these super creative Birthday wishes. Considering my crap day, some sugary treats send my way would turn around my mood. Here is your chance to be Master of the Universe and take that sadness and turn it into happiness. But in my experience, the sympathy card never works in contests. But you may be the first who does the unexpected. Happy Birthday and all good wishes to our King of the Candy Universe. I am not above using shameless flattery.
