Life Savers Ornomints
Good news Candy Addicts! Our friends over at Wrigley are showing the holiday spirit and want to share some of their great products with Candy Addict readers! We’ve decided to have a Wrigley Trivia Contest to determine who gets the free goods!

Wrigley Heritage Tin - SpearmintThere will be 5 winners, each will receive 3 Wrigley Heritage Tins (Juicy Fruit, Doublemint and Spearmint) and 3 Life Savers Orn-o-mints (in red, green and blue). The first person to submit the correct answers will win one prize pack and the other four winners will be randomly chosen from all correct winners.

Here are the details on the prizes:

Wrigley’s Heritage Tins are decorated as your favorite Wrigley’s flavor, Doublemint(r), Spearmint(r) or Juicy Fruit(r) and contain (12) five-stick packs of gum; four of each of these well loved brands. The vintage inspired tins fit wonderfully in a stocking or add flavor to any holiday coffee table or countertop. Post holidays when the gum has been chewed, the tins can be re-used to organize and store small household or office items.

Life Savers Orn-o-Mints are the perfect holiday gift or entertaining accent and are filled with iconic Life Savers candy. When decorating a tree or your home for the holiday, Life Savers Orn-o-Mints are a perfect compliment. Available in three colors, blue, red and green, the ball shaped “orn-o-mints” are a fun edition to any holiday setting. They can also be used to spice up any holiday gift when tucked next to a gift tag.

Pop Rocks Partners with American Idol

Categories: Candy,Candy News,Classic and Retro Candy


Pop Rocks

The sixth season of Fox’s popular reality series American Idol is under way, and Pop Rocks is coming along for the ride. Pop Rocks is launching a new song contest: I Want to be a Pop Rocks Star. Kids enter by writing a song about their favorite crackling, popping candy and must send it in along with two proofs of purchase. Apparently, winners will be chosen at random from the pool of all entries, and details about prizes are still sketchy so early into the year.

If you know a young person who’s brimming with musical pride over carbonated candy, tell them to keep an eye out for this contest. Who knows? Maybe they’ll end up as Pop Rocks’ own American Idol, hopefully without having to hear any dream-crushing insults from Simon Cowell.

Butterfinger’s “Make the Most of Any Moment” contest

Categories: Candy,Candy News,Candy Videos,Chocolate Candy


Butterfinger MTMOAM

Wanna win some cool prizes from Butterfinger? Do you have a video camera? All you have to do is create a video that portrays how to use Butterfinger, and its ubiquitous “Finger” icon, to make the most of life’s most mundane moments.

The prizes are pretty sweet too (no pun intended):

  • Grand Prize is a handheld video camera, one MacBookPro and video editing software and a Butterfinger “schwag” gift bag
  • 9 Finalists will win a video camera with a built-in MP3 player and a Butterfinger “schwag” gift bag
  • All entrants receive Butterfinger product

The rules are simple:

  1. Video must feature Butterfinger, Butterfinger Crunch, and/or the Butterfinfer “Finger”
  2. Video must be less than 100MB
  3. You can’t use copyrighted images or music
  4. Entry must be submitted by November 1 (so hurry!)

Entries will be judged as follows:

  1. 35% Originality
  2. 35% Laugh Factor
  3. 25% Creative use of Butterfinger and/or The Finger
  4. 5% Quality of Production

The top 10 videos will be feature at FollowTheFinger.com and visitors can then vote for their favorite. You can see all the current entries at the YouTube page and if I read things correctly, there are only 9 entries currently – that’s some pretty good odds that you can at least be a finalist and win a video camera! I’m tempted to submit one myself! In fact, I have an extra brand new FollowTheFinger” tshirt – first person to submit a video to the contest that says “candyaddict.com” in it (visually) will get the tshirt. Just contact me and give me the link to the video on YouTube.

Categories: Candy,Candy News,Chocolate Candy,Foreign (non-US) Candy


UK KitKat

You may remember that we just posted about a Wonka golden ticket contest a few days ago, but now there is news of yet another one. This time the contest is for the UK only, and the prize doesn’t include anything as glorious as designing your own limited edition candy. You do, however, win a spot on the next season of the UK edition of Big Brother.

Concealed within 100 Kit Kat bars is Golden Ticket that is worth a chance at a spot on Big Brother. The actual participant will be choosen from that pool of 100 golden ticket winners. The contest runs from May 18th at 10:30 until June 2nd at 10:20 pm. So all our UK readers should head to one of the 40,000 participating retail locations and stock up on KitKats.


Wonka Golden Ticket Contest – for real this time

Categories: Candy,Candy News,Chocolate Candy


Wonka

Much like in the movie, Willy Wonka is having a contest where you must purchase Wonka candy in a quest for a golden ticket. Instead of winning a factory full of Oompa Lompas however, you can win $25,000 “salary” and what may be an even cooler prize, the chance to design your very own Wonka candy bar which will be available for sale for a limited time only. 100 First Place runners-up will win a Wonka MP3 player, and 1,000,001 2nd place runners-up will win some free candy. Prize winners will be announced in early 2007.

The press release also mentions a summer event where Wonka will unveil his newest creations at Dylan’s Candy Bar in New York City. Hopefully I’ll be working in the city that day and can dash over on my lunch break to snap some pics, and get an early taste of the newest creations. No date is listed however, so you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for that.
