Suckers! Who Wants A Sucker! (Giveaway!) Contest Over!

You know how Mr. Cowboy makes the neatest suckers? Well, if you didn't know, he does. And they are really delicious. I wouldn't lie, I have eaten enough of them to know, they are very good. Well, a few posts ago, Beth from Around the Funny Farm, suggested that I do a sucker giveaway. I listened to my readers, and begged Mr. Cowboy to make some more suckers, so now, I am going to be giving away a huge bundle of suckers. There are many different flavors. There are cinnamon, banana, sour cherry, sour apple. root beer, pina colada, strawberry, cotton candy, vanilla, pralines and cream, and lots more. Mr. Cowboy even made a chocolate mint sucker this last time. It was really good. He also makes sour suckers. They can be any flavors. He will do half strawberry and then put the sour stuff in the middle and do banana on the other half. It's really good. He did a sour root beer and vanilla, it was really good. Those suckers are pina colada. I have argued with Mr. Cowboy that the color needs to be a pale yellow. But he insists on doing it a light pink. To me that is the color of the cotton candy. But his cotton candy is a blueish color? But I don't think the color matters much, it's the taste that counts. So, to all my blogger friends out there, if you would like some of these........Just leave me a comment and tell me what your New Year's Eve plans are. Simple as that. Then on New Year's Eve, at midnight, the giveaway will be over. I then, next year, I will have a random drawing for the winner!! It's as simple as that. We are going to Louisiana's Capital to visit some friends. It's always a good time when we see them.

So, tell me your New Year's Eve plans in the comments and you will be entered to win a bundle of handmade suckers.

Yummy! We should be going to dinner at my husband's co-worker's party. Unless I need to chaperone the YM/YW stake party. I really want to know who planned a church function for all the girl babysitters 12-18 on New Year's Eve! Punks.

Woot!! Delicious free candy!! And I have lots of time on my hands to lay here and suck on candy, believe me, you! lol!

So prepare yourself to be shocked, excited and amazed at my New Years Eve plans!!!

Yeppers, I'll be laying here on my bed, with my battered and bruised leg, perched up on pillows.

I may or may not stay up to watch the ball drop. Depends upon how effective my pain pills are! gah!

lol!
Well, you asked. :D

Happy New Years, Andrea!

I will be going out to our camp on the river with my kids. Fun, fun!

The Wades said...

I plan on being in my hubby's hospital room as he recovers! Now if that isn't the most exciting plans, I don't know what is! :)

Cheryl said...

Well, we were going to have a get-together here at our house, but our daughter is heading out of town and our son has his own plans, so it will just be hubby and me! Hey, I LOVE your background! Where did you get it? Very pretty!

Cactus Jack Splash said...

Nice Mr. Cowboy is helping with your give away.
I am spending the evening at home, being boring, with my family.
Please don't enter me in the contest...being diabetic doesn't lend to eating suckers-they do look good though

kdwhorses said...

Yum-O they sound delish and of course I want to be entered!

We don't do anything on New Years Eve. We have family night, make homemade pizza, watch movies. I don't like to be out driving with all the other party goers.

Carroll Farm said...

We are having all the neighbors over to our house, it is a yearly tradition. We are too far in the sticks to be going into town to play- too many drunks in Phoenix. We play games and let the kids stay up late. It is a lot of fun.

OOOHH, I hope I win....

Rambling Woods said...

Don't enter me in the contest..I love candy, but it doesn't love me anymore. We are staying home with a fire in the fireplace as it will be very cold and snowy outside...Nice of you to do this Andrea and nice that your hubby made the candy...

Melanie said...

Hmmmm....not sure what we are doing yet, but we will either be spending it at home, at my husband's cousins house, or at the waterfront with my parents.

Melanie said...

PS-I just read about your camera!!! How cool is that, Andrea!!!

Tj and Mark said...

I just spent a lovely Christmas with an adorable family in Lousianna! All caught up now and ready to get in on a 'sweet' deal from a sweet guy. We hope to spend a quiet New Year's evening with friends. Which friends, we don't know!! Tj

Laura said...

Hmmm...yummy suckers, and think of the bundle you'd save in shipping by picking me! LOL!

But...I'm not sure about what our plans are. I for sure know what they are NOT, but well, that's a whole other post right there. I might go to Erin's and hang out? Dunno.

I'm a sucker for suckers. Really those praline ones sound wonderful. I wanna learn how to make them!!!

No plans yet for New Years Eve. We usually stay home and play games and watch fireworks. Mr B has a cold, he'd better get well soon cause I will be waiting for that New Years Eve kiss.

Train Wreck said...

What will I be doing on New years...hmmmm.... Sleeping, with visions of sugar plum...Suckers dancing in my head! No really, You don't think I would be doing anything exciting? I am all talk! Truly....

Al said...

The Merrills are going to be recovering from the wedding/luncheon/reception for our nephew. We hope to make it to 10 pm!

Pick me, pick me----I LOVE suckers!!

New Year's Eve? I was hoping to get to spend it with My Honey-but no go this year! He doesn't really like to go out anyway, says NYE is "amature nite"-LOL.
So instead, I am taking my daughter to a New Year' Eve dance at a tiny little dance hall, in a tiny little town, just down the road a bit. I went a couple of years ago and it was just the best time ever!!

Erin said...

I think it is so cool that Mr. Cowboy makes suckers!!! We would love to try them.

My dear hubby got a phone call about two nights of overtime. So he'll be at work. I plan on having a very family-friendly get-together here. Play games, pop fireworks, count down to midnight, then put the kids in bed.

There have been a couple of years when we do our countdown at 10 or 11:00. The kids don't realize the difference and they have a great time anyway.

May Canadians enter?

I'll be staying home this year. I'm not sure yet whether people will stop by here or if I'll be on my own, so all I know for sure is that I'm going to listen to music (if I'm home alone, I will most likely dance or knit).

Carolina girl said...

We are letting the girls invite some of their little friends over for a New Year's Party/sleepover. We did it last year and they had so much fun. We did what Erin said they have done before, which is pretend like it's New Year's at 10:00 in hopes of getting them to bed earlier. Didn't really work for us, but we had a great time anyway. Hope you guys have a great time celebrating! See ya next year! =)

Jenn said...

We will be home watching football and I'll be asleep before 12 like always. I'm boring !

KD said...

My sisters and mother are coming over to have a big dinner and then we're going to play games and maybe watch a chick flick. I'll probably not make it till midnight though. I'd like to try one of those really hot suckers you said Mr. Cowboy makes! :-)
