Fannie May Chocolate Covered Strawberries Giveaway {Giveaway Closed}

Update: The Pick A Giveaway Plugin chose “jessie” and “Caitlyn”… Check your emails, ladies. Congratulations!!

I don’t usually do a straight giveaway, but this is fun, people. I just couldn’t say no! The fine folks at Fannie May Berries offered to send me a box of their chocolate covered strawberries. Just tell me, how could I possibly say no? Furthermore, they said that if I liked them, they’d give away a box to my readers. That’s YOU ALL, folks! I always get excited when people offer to give things away to you guys. It makes me kind of giddy. But I also have a rule… I don’t give it away unless I think someone would be really thrilled to get it. While Fannie May Berries have many indulgent flavours -Sea Salt Milk Chocolate Caramel, Pink & White Champagne, Toasted Coconut & White Chocolate (Trinidad©), Milk Chocolate Caramel & Nuts (Pixies©) and Holiday flavors—Dark Chocolate Gingerbread, Candy Cane and Eggnog- I opted for the Sea Salt Milk Chocolate Caramel. What I really wanted to say was, “SEND ME  ONE OF EVERY SINGLE FLAVOUR.” That wouldn’t have been very nice of me, though, and I strive for niceness when people are giving me chocolate and strawberries.

I got my box of strawberries yesterday…

It couldn’t have come at a better time. Mama needed a treat. I opened it immediately. And by immediately, I mean with my teeth. Just look at this people.

I don’t think you can fully grasp the gargantuan size of these strawberries in the box. Maybe it’ll help if I show you what this one looked like moments before it met a very rapid demise due to me inhaling it.

Can you even? I mean honestly. Just. Words fail me. Good golly. It was gigantic.

Was.

And then it was gone.

These berries are BURSTING with juice. It’s incredible really. And when you order the berries through their website, they are in your home or the home of your wondrously lucky gift recipient within twenty four hours. What a great holiday or last minute gift option!

But here’s the point. They’re going to ship a box to not one -which would be nice enough- but TWO very blessed Foodie with Family readers. How do you win? I have a couple of ways for you to win. Here they are:

    I would ship them to my Mom, at Christmas. So we could both enjoy them, and I wouldn’t eat them on the car drive there!

  2. Yasmin says

    I would curl up in bed with the box of berries and a good romantic comedy. I’m a sucker for chocolate-covered strawberries!

  3. Yasmin says

    I’ve also been following along with your 30 days of gratitude. I love it! It’s making me very grateful for all the little (and BIG) things in life.

  4. says

    I would share them with my mother, boyfriend and most importantly my boyfriend’s two delightful kids who would go absolutely nuts for these!

  5. Teresa Tucker says

    We would eat the strawberries as soon as they arrived. My household of boys would have them gobbled up in a quick hurry.

  6. Emily says

    I would hopefully be able to hold myself off and enjoy them with my husband at the hospital in celebration of our first baby! If not I suppose we could celebrate early =)

  7. Beth S. says

    Liked Fannie May on FB; already like you on FB! Followed you on Instagram. Sadly, not a Twitter user. And I just chimed in on today’s thankful post. :)

  8. says

    I’d be at least a little selfish and have them shipped to me, but my husband and I would probably take them over to the in-laws’ house to share… at least two of them, anyway. ;)

  9. Lori H says

    As much as I like to share, these babies would be all mine (well, I would share with my chocolate-loving son). So excited to see that Fannie Mae is still around. I grew up in the Midwest and these were the “gold standard” of chocolates in my town.

  10. Angela McLeod says

    These are pretty healthy since there IS a whole fruit in the middle so I would totally eat them myself. Without sharing them with either of my kids or husband. I’ve never eaten Fannie May chocolates before so I think this could be considered research on my part.

  11. Naj says

    I don’t typically celebrate my birthday in a big way, but this one is my 30th, and I would love to have the yummy strawberries featured at my birthday bash!

  12. Kristina N. says

    I’m not going to lie – I would have them shipped to me and probably eat them all in one sitting. I might share one with my husband. Half of one…

  13. Adrianne H. says

    I should say I would send them to someone special…So I would send them to my husband and upon danger of penalties, I would instruct him to share…a 60/30 split in my favor should work well.

  14. MaryG says

    I wish I could say I’d send them to someone, or share with family. I wish, but I can’t. I’d have them shipped to me, and hopefully they would arrive when I was home alone, so I could eat them all in one fell strawberry-juice-stained swoop. Then I’d make a nice dinner for my family to assuage my guilt. (But I don’t think there would be much guilt. Honestly, I’m not very nice sometimes.)

  15. diana says

    i’d be selfish and have them shipped to me…but would feel immediately feel guilty and would share with my husband and friends!

  16. Rachel says

    I would love to say I would share them, but since I’m 37 weeks pregnant I would probably just eat them all… maybe save one for the husband… maybe.

  17. April C says

    If I won, I would have them shipped right here with me. I would give every member of my family one and I would have two! Mmmm!

  18. katey says

    I’d send them to my sister – she has two broken ribs, weakened from the radiation treatment for breast cancer. she’s has a bad year and chocolate covered strawberries make her happy. and i already like you on Facebook because you’re awesome.

  19. Christina B says

    I would get them sent to me and share with my husband. We have a two week old now, It would definitely be a nice treat for our sleep deprived selves!

  20. Dawn says

    I would have them shipped to me- then I’d share with my daughter who just had a baby, my mom who is about to go in for more heart “stuff”, and my daughter, whose husband of 6 weeks just deployed. Okay, and maybe with my husband! : )

  21. says

    Oh, I would have these beauties shipped to my kids, they would LOVE them. Of course, my kids are all under age 9, so I would at least get one bite, by default.

  22. Bryn says

    If I won these, I would sit on the couch with my two best friends, watch a silly movie, and savor them one by one. My mouth is watering as I type.

  23. Elena Vo says

    I’d get them shipped to me and make sure the quality is okay (by eating one…or two…) and then share it with my Dad as he llloves strawberries.

  24. Elena Vo says

    Commented on your discussion, great posts and I appreciate you finding something to be thankful for every day!

  25. Karen says

    I would share with my neighbors who all helped each other out during the 9 days we were without power post Sandy. I feel so lucky for community.

  26. Anna Kim says

    I would definitely have to restrain myself from ripping the box open with my teeth when it gets here but I’ll be a nice girl and wait to share with my handsome boyfriend. Maybe just one…. haha

  27. Meghan says

    I have to admit that they’d be sent directly to me. We’ve just moved, and I feel like we deserve a treat–and salted caramel is my ten-year-old daughter’s *favorite*!

  28. Gerilynne says

    I would bring the box to our next Family Readiness Group meeting of my husband’s (Army) unit and offer them to the spouses whose Soldiers deployed to Afghanistan this week. I think the berries would bring a little cheer for people who might need a little cheering up right now.

  29. says

    I’m not 8 months pregnant (thank God)…and I’d eat ‘em all in one sitting as well :p Probably in my closet under the cover of shoes and coats bc there’s always some pesky kid at my house who would think the strawberries were for her ;)

  30. ChristaD says

    I’m a mom too. I would open the box, cut them in half & our family would share the Devine treat. Sounds yummy.

  31. Rhonda Ahrens says

    I can not wait to taste those chocolate covered strawberries but I would share them with my college buddy, Lynn who has had her share of health issues this week. Thanks for the fun!

  32. Donna says

    I’d love to say I would give these away to someone else but they just look too good. Would share with the family and friends.

  33. wendy m. says

    Ship them to ME! But it will be a gift to the kiddos and hopefully they will share some with their parents. =) which they will…. =) But in all seriousness, these look AWESOME and I mean it when I say the kiddos (and parents) will LOVE them!

  34. Michelle says

    I would have them shipped to my brother and his family! I miss them so much and this would be a real treat for them!

  35. Bernie says

    I would definitely have them shipped to my best friend and cousin whose birthday was yesterday…she would totally go bananas (or strawberries, haha) for these!

  36. Licia Bajus says

    So, what would I do with a box of chocolate covered strawberries? Do you want truth or a lie? Here is the lie: “I would send it to a dear friend who has more kids than I do (8 to be exact) and her dishwasher is broken. Still. For two years. Or is that three?” That, dear Rebecca, is a lie. I would think of it. I really would! Then, in all truth, I would be certain to open the box during nap time. Then, I would sink into whatever piece of furniture that was LEAST covered with laundry/books/toys and slowly, ever so slowly, enjoy a single strawberry, fully intending on saving the other for different days. Then, likely, I would be overcome by sheer pleasure and I would eat the rest of them, while sending up a prayer for my friend with 8 kids. Then, if they are as good as you say they are, I might go order her a box… and another for myself. :-)

  37. Licia Bajus says

    Well, I don’t know how to do all those other things to get an extra chance to win, but I did just add your blog to my list of blogs I follow in my RSS feed in my e-mail viewer thingy. So, for that, and because I like chocolate and strawberries, you can add my name 437 more times!

    And, if I did have facebook, I would like you – which would be redundant. ;-)

    And, if I did tweet I would chirp at you – begging you for more rummy ginger pears!

  38. says

    Oh, gosh, those babies would be MINE. Not sending them to anyone else, sorry to say. (Well, not really. :D) I LOVE choc-covered strawberries!!!!!!!!
    Thanks for the giveaway! :D

  39. sharonjo says

    As much as I would love to eat them all myself, I would have them shipped to my sister and her husband, who are going through a really rough time right now. I think they would really brighten their day. Thanks so much for the chance!

  40. Dorcas says

    I would have them shipped to my good friend, Jen. She just called me to tell me that she got a job! Her first full-time job in two years!

  41. Michelle W says

    I’ve tried to post every day on the 30 Gratitude challenge… though I did miss a day. Gotta go back and do my makeup work. ;)

  42. Pam Pardee says

    I have been looking for an appropriate Birthday gift for my sister.
    I would send this to her since she loves Chocolate covered Strawberrys more than anything I can think of.

  43. Erin Brown says

    I am a selfish, selfish woman. I would send them to myself. Per-shnapps I would share them with my husband. If he’s nice. And takes the night duty with the baby. Then I can eat all of them in bed!

  44. Rachel says

    yum. My small town does a strawberry festival every June. And the local chocolate shop makes chocolate covered strawberries for that weekend. I would share one with my husband, give one or two to my mom (she really appreciates them) and eat all the rest myself.

  45. Michelle J says

    New to your site and I just love it! Thanks for all the great recipes! I think I would ship it to a hard to buy for older relative for Christmas. Thanks!

  46. says

    Strawberries and chocolate are my absolute favorite treats to eat but when you put them together I’m totally out of control…lol! My children and grandchildren are delighted when we fix these treats for a family dinner. It has been over 30 years since I had my first Fannie May Chocolates. I received a box as a gift from dear friend that was from Wisconsin…you could not get them in CA back then. Oh how I enjoyed every bite. I savored that box of chocolates for about two weeks. Needless-to-say I’ve been hooked ever since. I thought about who would receive the chocolate strawberries and decided I would treat myself to a birthday present (Dec.19th)! Of course, I’ll share with my best friend…my dear hubby! : )

  47. says

    These look absolute amazing! I want them in my mouth, like, now. However, I think I’d be nice and give them to a special someone as a treat. :)

  48. Joleen says

    My daughter’s high school classmate from several years ago is struggling with terminal cancer and I’ll send them to her.

  49. Yvette Novak says

    Although the Fannie May strawberries looked amazingly delicious, I
    would opt to have them shipped to a widow I know. She has little contact
    with her family, but she’s always been like an Aunt to me, and I would love
    for her to get something cool like that delivered to her door :)

  50. says

    First of all, you absolutely did the RIGHT thing by choosing the sales caramel variety.
    The blessed strawberry treats would first go to a photo shoot with some of my pottery, because what doesn’t look better with a chocolate covered strawberry on it. Next I would calmly devour one of the scrumptious berries. I would then trust that each of the people I crossed paths with was the destined recipient of one of the amazing morsels. I think folks have started trailing me already.

  51. Michelle L says

    I’d like to say I’d give them away- but just looking at the photos is making me drool! They’d be coming straight to my house!
