Giveaway Time! Simply Caramel Relax and Enjoy!

Nothing says relaxation like a 90 degree summer day with 99% humidity and a sick kid. Hopefully you all are having a better August than I am! But if not, here's something to cheer you up: a giveaway you're going to love. Two Yumsters will be chosen to receive a "Simply Caramel Relax and Enjoy" gift pack from Milky Way that includes:
  • A $75 gift certificate to SpaFinder.com for a yoga class or massage
  • Enough Simply Caramel Bars to indulge in for a month (5)

(Yes, I know what you're thinking... you could eat 5 candy bars in a day, right?)

As I may have mentioned in the past, I still haven't tried the Milky Way Simply Caramel because No-Nuts made a midnight snack out of the one I had, but it's described as a Milky Way without the nougat. So here's what you have to do: leave a comment here saying why you love caramel. Two lucky caramelophiles will be chosen on Wednesday, August 18 at high noon Eastern time. Be sure to leave a way for me to get in touch with you and U.S. residents only, please.

Good luck!

I love that feeling of caramel covered sticky fingers and just licking them clean - it's that sweet buttery melt in your mouth taste that lingers long after... fingers crossed I win and if I do - you can contact me at pinklovealways@hotmail.com

I love caramel because it's fun to make ^___^ I went to a culinary school and have fond memories of making caramel sauce over and over again... and in the candy class we make caramel candies... hee hee hee ^_^

Chelsea said...

i love the gooiness and stringiness of caramel!

maibelle said...

I have good memories of my mom bring home candy and she always gave me the caramel ones. She knew they were my favorites.I've just always enjoyed caramel.The other day my youngest son pointed out the caramel Milky Way bars and asked if we could share one. I bought two. We went home and even though we had two, we still shared one. That made it so much more sweet and wonderful. I will be sharing the other one with my hubby. :D Maybe...

Josh said...

Tragically, when I was a child, I was burdened with a smile that made jack-o-lanterns cringe. Braces were brutally affixed to every tooth thus inhibiting me from the gooey sticky sweet deliciousness we all know as caramel. So you ask why I love caramel... well, Caramel is a flavor of freedom! The shackles that once bound me from indulging have been lifted and I may now make up for last time!

Jennifer D. said...

What's not to love? Brown sugar & butter! I love a firm caramel with lots of chew. But I also love a liquid caramel over ice cream...

mmlenentine said...

I love the smooth texture and creamy goodness of a fresh piece of caramel. I can eat it by itself or in a yummy piece of chocolate, over ice cream or with fruit. It is particulary good caramel when you've taken a bite and you pull the rest away from your mouth and you see how far the string of the caramel can go before it breaks. Mmmmmm!

Kim said...

I love caramel because it's sweet and buttery. Sometimes plain chocolate is a bit overwhelming and the buttery taste makes it just yummy!

Denise S. said...

I like the chewiness and the unique flavor. And yes, I could eat five a day!

mar said...

I love caramel becuase of the long lasting flavor. I love that taste, it reminds me of candied apples that I had on Halloween when I was a child.

I love caramel because of the soft chewy texture and delish taste. It makes me smile and makes me happy.

souldolphindream said...

I love caramel because it is always that perfect touch for my vanilla ice cream! It dances in your mouth when you have a nice piece of caramel covered in chocolate and you can taste it 10 minutes later. Thanks now I have to go out and get something with caramel in it! It is that secret treat that I keep for myself and dont share with the kids!

I love the taste of caramel and the memories of eating slow pokes at my family campouts. There is just nothing quite like caramel and it goes so well with chocolate.

I love caramel because it's such a sweet soft tasting treat, that lasts longer than most other treats. The taste is so pleasant and pleasantly stays in your mouth with lingering memories.
Thanks so much.

I love the buttery, sugary taste of caramel. It reminds me of being a kid, sitting at the pool and eating Caramello bars. Today, I like a firmer caramel, like the kind in a Wilton chocolate-covered caramel. Delicious!

I love the stickiness of it, trying to get that last bit off my teeth

I love caramel because it adds sweetness and a creamy texture to anything! It's funny that I like it now, because it's one of those things that I actually didn't like as a child (as weird as that sounds). Now I'm craving a Caramello bar...

Caramel means that Fall has finally arrived because it reminds me of making homemade caramel apples with my mom. I would always try to sneak a caramel but would get busted because it would get stuck in my teeth!

OlyveOyl said...

Caramel provides you a lasting taste/stick in your mouth and takes awhile to disolve (if you can keep from chewing it!). It provides a content affect and leaves me with a yum feeling!

Rodzilla said...

I love caramel because it can compliment just about anything.

The darker roast can help offset an otherwise too sweet white chocolate; or a lighter caramel can add enough sweetness to contrast a bitter semi-sweet or dark.

Caramel also stands incredibly well on it's own. I'm not sure if you're familiar with Jeni's ice cream from Columbus, but I just paid $10 for a pint of their salted caramel ice cream the other day...that's how much I love it.

Caramel is my favorite "friend of chocolate". I like the runny caramel, the really thick caramel, the in-between caramel. My favorite special candy bar to get as a kid was a Caramello. I would eat the border off of each square, take the bottom piece out and then lick the caramel out of the inside. I'm a bit of a fanatic!

ky2here said...

I love caramel because my grandmother used to make old fashioned caramel apples with crushed pecans. She also made scotchies and I always think of her when I enjoy caramel.

I remember the first time I met my sweet darling caramel, I was about 5 and my grandmother offered me a small brown cube I gingerly placed it in my mouth fearing the worst (I had recently tried a bouillon cube thinking it was candy--it was not --and this looked suspiciously similar) I was pleasantly surprised.

I have always loved caramel! (Laying on couch telling you this): It all started when I was a child. My love affair was immediate and intense. One taste and I was hooked for life. Caramel with chocolate, caramel with apples, caramel on and in ice cream, anything caramel I would eat! Maybe even caramel on bugs-who knows?!
I even made homemade caramel in a pan. Boy was that good! The sweet buttery taste. You can't beat it!
OK, OK! I have a problem! I admit it!

I love caramel so much that I'll dip anything into it: apples, pretzel sticks, my fingers. It's such a bringer-together'er*, too. Chocolate and peanuts would be lost without it.


*I don't even know what that was...

Betty C said...

I love the smooth buttery caramel flavor. When it sticks to my teeth and takes extra time to melt away I can add a bite of chocolate or a slice of apple and still enjoy the caramel flavor.

mineola said...

I love caramel for the color & meltiness- Loved it since I first encountered those circular slices as a kid, the ones filled with a center of powdered sugar that melts away. To this day I think creme caramel is the perfect desert!
