  1. I got distracted by the comment by Kathy Douglas.

    I gave my daughter a Whitman's sampler on three occasions. (I couldn't find them after that.)Each came with a soft toy Snoopy. When we decorate for Christmas they have a special spot. There is a Snowman Snoopy, Snoopy in a pink bunny suit and a Snoopy in a green onesie and striped nightcap.

    I'm no good at naming chocolates, just eating them.

    1. That makes a great quote, Mary!
      "I'm no good at naming chocolates, just eating them."
      Mind if I steal it?

  2. Well this is a hard giveaway. Lol I'm guessing Cheryl Pierson because she deceived the big heart shape boxed candies and that would have been before the boxes had cheat sheets to what was inside!

    1. Stephanie, my mom used to teach us what those candies were by the shape of them before we got the cheat sheet kind. LOL Squares are caramels (my favorite of all). Rectangles are nougats of some kind, usually. Round are cremes. The nut kind and coconut (ugh) you can see usually. LOL I got to be an expert by the time I was about 7 or 8. LOL

  9. Kathy Douglas for the Snoopy because she loves Snoopy figurines. The heart shape box could be from anyone since most of the authors love boxed chocolates

  10. This has been so much fun. I've enjoyed reading the comments from everyone about all the candy and preferences. I truthfully just love chocolate of any kind--except the time when I turned 6 and Mom bought me a German chocolate cake. It was the only chocolate cake they had and of course, German chocolate has dreaded coconut in the icing. :(((( We'd just moved and Mom didn't have any of her kitchen stuff unpacked, so she had to buy a cake that year for me. She did the best she could, under the circumstances, but I will always remember how I took a bite of that "chocolate" cake and the coconut was so overpowering--more so than the chocolate flavor. LOL But as for chocolate candy--I will eat any of it...except the ones with coconut in them.

    Many thanks to GLIAS for hosting this wonderful Valentine shindig! Such fun and a great pleasure to be included!

  11. It has to be sugar free! No wonder SOME of us are not so sweet anymore! But that doesn't stop us from writing great stories!

    FANTASTIC advertising!

  13. Snoopy question - Kathy Douglas

    Angi I do the same thing with the boxed candy, I take a bite and if I don't like it my husband will eat it. He'll eat anything chocolate and I'm picky.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Angi likes to pinch or bite. Kathy Douglas collects Snoopy and likes Whitman Chocolate which I think it says on the box.

    I also love Western books that include children...

  19. My guess is Kathy Douglas! :)

    There aren't many types of Valentine's candy out there that I don't love! My fav is Milk Chocolate Salted Caramels from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

  20. I love how Linda thinks, I'd totally go for the box of chocolates too since there are so many kinds to sample! And Angi, you know you have a keeper of a husband when he'll eat the stuff you don't want!
