Ghirardelli Million Moments Chocolate Giveaway

Check it out Yumsters! Ghirardelli is having a fun sweepstakes on their website (www.ghirardellimoments.com) called "Million Moments." All you have to do to enter is visit their website and tell them where and when you enjoy Ghirardelli Squares Chocolates. There are thousands of chocolate prizes and a trip for two to a famous world square.
In the meantime, you can also enter the Candy Yum Yum Ghirardelli Giveaway. I have four baskets of Ghirardelli Squares to send to some lucky Yumsters. All you have to do is leave a comment here telling me where your favorite "square" is. (I'd have to say mine is a tie between St. Mark's in Venice and St. George's in Bermuda.)
Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you in case you're a winner (that means don't post your comment anonymously!) I'll pick four recipients at midnight on May 18. (Continental U.S. residents only.) Good luck!
This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering!

Triumph square in Sevilla, Spain.

I would have to say that my favourite "square" would have to be my brothers home in Kalapana Hawaii. The town of Kalapana was taken by the flow of lava, yet it hasn't taken the beautiful people who remember what it once was. Kilauea (the volcano) is still active to this day and you can see the lava flowing from his home. The area in beautiful...away from the sounds of civilization...just the thoughts of laying on a hammock listening to the birds and ocean makes mme smile and my heart sing!!

Being in NJ and close to NY, I'd have to say my favorite square is "Times Square". It's funny, I lived in NJ all my life and really didn't visit NY until the past few years. (I'm now in my 40's). I am so much like a tourist each time I go there and get so excited.
This is such a great prize. I really LOVE Ghirardelli Chocolates. Thanks so much.

My favorite square is not entirely square, but beautiful. It is the old town square in Prague, where the Clock Tower and the statue of Jan Hus are found. It has all these winding side streets, full of shops with ice cream and pastries. I spent so much time there. I never felt bad about skipping class to go eat ice cream when I stayed in Prague.

I grew up in a small town in Kansas with a square. The courthouse was in the middle and we drove around "the square" in our cars for fun on weekend nights - and all the town events were held on the square - ice cream socials, etc. I loved growing up there. But as an adult, I've traveled to some great squares, and Time's Square is my favorite!
