Give Away!

March 30, 2012

I don’t usually post on Friday’s–but a special occasion, make that TWO, special occasions are occurring this upcoming Thursday, April 5th.

The First–It’s the Cubs home opener! I’m so excited for baseball to be back. I especially can’t wait to see all the changes that Theo Epstein has implemented.

The Second–April 5th is National Caramel Day!!!

To celebrate two of my favorite things–I’m GIVING AWAY two 1/2 lb bags of Wrigleyville City Caramels.  My current favorite. Think Baby Ruth candy bar, with a twist.  Lots of salty, roasted peanuts embedded in caramel that’s been infused with Old Style beer.  A taste of Wrigley!

The Contest Details:

1) Tell me who your favorite Cub player (past or present) is and why.  Also, just for fun, let me know the number of games you think the Cubs are going to win this year. At the end of the season I’ll send a bag to the person whose guess was most accurate.

2) There are a number of ways you can let me know your thoughts:

a) You can leave your answer directly on this blog.

b) You can LIKE City Caramels  on Facebook and leave a comment on the wall.

c) Or you can follow City Caramels on Twitter and tweet me your answer.

3) I will randomly choose two winners on the morning of Thursday, April 5th. I’ll contact you directly and then you can let me know where you would like the caramels delivered.


Sound good? Okay. Let the games begin!


Happy Leap Day

February 29, 2012

What an incredible day! Sixty one degrees in February. I celebrated the holiday at Navy Pier. Free parking, Twenty nine cent Ferris wheel rides. Food specials galore. I thought it was incredibly cool that the Pier was celebrating the day–the free parking alone was enough to put me in a festive mood!

SO, because I realize just how much fun it is to receive something free, I updated the City Caramels etsy site. Free shipping on Mini bags! I’m not sure how long this offer will last, but I thought it would be a fun thing to promote. I’m always a tiny bit resentful when I’m shopping online and find something at a seemingly low price only to have that price jacked up by shipping and handling costs. Check out the goods. I look forward to hearing from you…

Happy Leap Year Day!
