Easter Candy Giveaway from Lake Champlain Chocolates

Oooooh, do I have something fun for you guys today!

Although I was just talking about St. Patrick's Day yesterday, Easter is not too far in the future. Easter rarely occurs in March, but this year, it is. I love when Easter rolls around, mainly because my all-time favorite candy is Easter candy. I'm not really sure why - perhaps it's the pretty colors, the cute bunny shapes, the cream-filled eggs? Regardless, it's good. And locally made Easter candy is better than anything I can buy at CVS, in my opinion. Knowing you guys appreciate local businesses (and candy) too, I reached out to Lake Champlain Chocolates (LCC) a few weeks ago to see if they were interested in doing a giveaway on The EE. LCC has been making specialty chocolates in Burlington, Vermont for 25 years...and their chocolates are really, really good.

Truffle from LCC's Spring Chocolate Assortment.

Lucky for us, LCC happily obliged to doing a giveaway. They're giving one lucky EE reader their Milk Chocolate Easter Basket ($49.50 value) - just in time for the holiday!


Inside the basket: 6.5" Classic Milk Chocolate Easter Bunny; 6.5 oz. Milk Chocolate Caramel Eggs Gift Bag; 2 oz. Milk Chocolate Carrot; 4 oz. All-Natural Jelly Beans (available only in gift basket); 1 Organic Milk Chocolate Bar (available only in gift basket).


LCC sent me a sample of the Easter basket to try for myself (as well as a box of their Spring Chocolate Assortment - something you all must buy), and trust me when I say this is not your ordinary Easter basket. Every item is clearly made with only high quality ingredients, and those caramel eggs? Incredibly good.

To enter to win this Easter basket, simply comment on this post saying what your favorite Easter candy is. For an extra entry, tweet: "I entered to #win #Easter candy from @MichellePC and @LCChocolates!" Please leave a second comment with your tweet.

I'll pick a winner Friday (3/15) morning. Good luck! 

This giveaway is now closed. 

I received the Milk Chocolate Easter Basket and Spring Chocolate Assortment in return for doing this giveaway. As always, the opinions expressed in this post are honest and 100 percent my own.
