My friends at Hershey’s — I was their S’mores spokesmom last year — offered to send bags of their delicious new candies, Hershey’s Drops, to 30 people of my choosing. Hershey’s Drops aren’t due in stores until December, so those 30 folks will get the same tasty preview we got at my house last week. Well, not an entire week, because we devoured both bags in three days.
Hershey’s Drops has two flavors: Chocolate and Cookies n Creme. My son described them as “M&M’s to the tenth power,” except they don’t have a hard candy shell. The chocolate ones taste like mini Hershey Kisses with a smooth finish, which keeps them from melting in the bag and in your hands. The cookies n’ creme taste like white chocolate-meets-Oreos.
Hershey’s said I could give them to 30 people today, but I gently explained the Halloween hangover thing most parents are currently enduring. So, I thought it would be way more fun playing the “Candy Mom,” like the Candy Man, only female and shouting, “Who left the Reese’s wrappers all over the floor?!”
Here’s my plan: I’m going to pick one person every day in November (including Thanksgiving), either here or on my Twitter page or at the MommaSaid Facebook page. It’ll likely be someone who leaves comments, or retweets me, or “likes” stuff on Facebook.
Every day, I’ll announce that person in all three places, and then you’ll need to get back to me so I can get your address. I have to give you, let’s say, three days from the announcement to send me your address, or I’ll have to pick someone else, because I’ve got to wrap this up by the end of the month. You understand.
That’s right: I’m going to mix it with love and make the world taste good.
Who is our first recipient of a randomly chosen 8 ounce resealable pouch of either the chocolate or cookies n’ creme (in other words, I have no say in what you get) Hershey’s Drops?
Momma says Kris Spurley. She’s a long-time MommaSaid fan who takes the time to comment here on Momma Blog and retweet my tweets. So Kris, shoot me your snail mail addy, either through DM on Twitter or by e-mailing me at jensingerATmommasaidDOTnet. Thanks for being a fan.
So there. I’ve started my first day as the Candy Mom, taking tomorrow and dipping it in a dream. Or whatever. Thanks to Hershey’s for all the fabulous free chocolate and to everyone who reads MommaSaid. Check in tomorrow to see who gets the next bag o’ Hershey’s Drops.
