Sweet Rewards from Blogging

Posted by Mike Volpe on 2/15/09 12:03 PM

Sometimes by being more public you get some rewards - blogging is one way of putting yourself out there.  Sweet Services Bulk Candy sent me 5 pounds of free candy and wrote about it, just because I blog.  Pretty cool!

I expected to get a mix of a bunch of candy I had before, but there were a few items that were new to me.  Vanilla Tootsie rolls? Yes, and they are good.  Cowtails?  Also good - they are sort of like bull's eyes (caramel with sugar in the middle), except they are long and thin.  Anyway, to make sure I make it past 40, I decided not to eat all the candy myself and I brought it into the office. 

It took 3.5 days for the company to empty the entire 5 pound bowl of candy.  Here are the photos to prove it.
