Awesome Giveaway #1

Since I'm a writer and voracious reader, I know that you're probably expecting something bookish for the first giveaway in The Month of Giveaway Awesomeness.

Nope.

Don't get me wrong, this blog is about writing and books, but it's also about whatever else I feel like. And for the kickoff giveaway of the month, I feel like giving a lucky blog reader something from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

"WHAT?!" say those of you who know me and know I don't like chocolate. No, the world hasn't ended. You see, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory also sells Caramel Apples.


Like the Apple Pie Apple: "This is not your ordinary apple pie. We take a large Granny Smith apple, apply a thick coat of fresh, creamy caramel, then dip it in sweet white confection. Then, while still hot, we roll it in brown sugar and cinnamon. Like Grandma used to make, only better!"




You get 8-10 slices of delicious goodness that will send your taste buds on a frenzied journey to ecstasy! Sigh.

One lucky commenter will win one of these babies this week!

The actual logistics of this giveaway are a bit tricky, since I can't really mail one to you. ("Oh, look, I got apple pie mush with a stick in the mailbox.") I can place an order for you, but then you have to go to a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory location to pick it up, and there may or may not be one near you. The other option is to send you a Cold Stone Creamery gift card, because many Cold Stones also have Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory products, and there are a whole lot more Cold Stones around the country than Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory locations. (You would have to pinky swear you'd use it for an apple, though.) Once we have a winner, the two of us will figure out the best way to get you your apple of yummilicious awesomeness.

And for those of you who *must* have something involving chocolate, Dragon Wrangler's got your back. (Just give her a little time to get the blog up, since she probably tore her rotator cuff the other day and typing is painful.)

Happy commenting to fight for that apple!!

Nothing says Halloween like caramel apples, so obviously it's appropriate for the month of October, right? Either way, writers need food distractions. Taking a bite of caramel can distract my mouth long enough to type.
Ok, been long winded enough.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Oooh...they look good.

And wait. What do you mean you don't like chocolate? did I know that and we're still friends? :)

Shallee said...

Ooh, I love Rocky Mountain Chocolate factory! What a great contest. :)

Yamile said...

I will eat one of those babies even with my braces! So delicious looking.

Terri Ferran said...

Thanks you chocolate-hating, hobbit-loving **old** woman! I just "wasted" half an hour of my work time reading your blog! You are funny and witty even if I am jealous of your husband's cheap, rose-giving ways! I am now a follower and WANT THOSE APPLES!

Cinette said...

I'm afraid I've never even heard of the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, even though I live only an hour from the Canadian Rockies. My mouth is watering, though, just looking at those treats!

Angie said...

Yum, yum, yum! You rock, Jaime.

Rachelle said...

Oh, delicious! They look so pretty that I think it makes them taste even better! Hope your birthday was a blast--this is a fun idea!

Lori-ann said...

Can I share with my kids? Or just give it to them? Cuz I have baby weight to lose! It still looks really good though.

Melissa said...

October is not october without one! Entering, hoping and really wanting one!

Julie Wright said...

I have apples gifted to me by a neighbor. I think I might have to melt some caramel and pretend I can make this.

Wehaf said...

I have a cold stone creamery right by my work.

And cutting up a caramel apple is brilliant. Why didn't I ever think of that?

Norma said...

The way you cut up the apple was perfection! I can't bite right into one (too hard), so the slice up would work!

Wow. They take "caramel apple" to a whole new level!

L.T. Elliot said...

Caramel apples--two of natures greatest treats combined into one. =]

Heather Justesen said...

Those apples look seriously tasty! I've tried a bite of one of these babies once, and it was yumalicious!
