Tag: welcome bag ideas

This week is like my dream come true on the Southern Weddings blog! Not only do I love birthdays, but I love sweets. So today, we’re offering up TWO giveaways!

Emily was the first person who pointed out Sweeteeth’s amazing line of chocolate bars, bon bons and sauces to me. I was so excited to be able to partner with them for a giveaway. Really, y’all, just take a look! Isn’t your mouth watering?

Johnny (an Alabama native!), Sweeteeth’s owner and chocolatier creates unique chocolates in flavors that look as good as they taste. Plus, we love their fun names and cool packaging. Sweeteeth is based in Charleston, so we’re confident that these chocolately treats will add a yummy splash of the South to any wedding.

We’re taking a cue from Sweeteeth and getting creative with our desserts. That’s why we’re really excited to be giving away Courtney Dial Whitmore of Pizzazzerie’s book, Push-Up Pops! I wish y’all could see the recipes inside this thing. Only one word could describe them: yum. Who knew red velvet cake and banana pudding could look so adorable in a push pop?

To Enter: There are two ways to enter!
1. Leave a comment below telling us which chocolate bar speaks most to your sweet tooth OR which dessert you would put in a push pop!
2. Tweet “I just entered the Sweeteeth + Push-Up Pops giveaway on @iloveswmag!” Then come back here and leave a SEPARATE comment telling us you did so.

Win: A $50 gift card to Sweeteeth OR the Push-Up Pops book by Courtney Dial Whitmore!

This giveaway will close on April 13. Good luck y’all!

  2. avatar Kelly Edm reply

    I think I’d like to try the cinnamon, apple and pecan bar from Sweeteeth. Yum! Of course, the salted caramel also looks divine.

  3. avatar Emily Lawrence reply

    Sea is for caramel looks amazing! I am always up for a combination of salty and sweet.

  4. avatar Laura reply

    I think I would try a key lime pie in a push-up pop. Mmmmm, that sounds good!

  5. avatar Meg S reply

    If there were any feasible way to get a crepe in a push pop, I would be all over that.

  6. avatar Lindy reply

    Salted caramel… yummm!!!! And hi to Courtney, my sorority sister from Vanderbilt! A big WOO to you for your success as an author!!!

  7. avatar Olivia S reply

    I LOVE the idea of the ‘call of the wild bar’. Caramel, port wine, and chocolate? There is no possible way that could go wrong.

  8. avatar Laura P reply

    The ‘Sea is for Caramel’ Sweeteeth bar sounds delicious to me – I love that classic salty + sweet combo!

  9. avatar Laura reply

    Seriously, this week’s giveaways have made me hungry every time. The cinnapsis chocolate bar looks divine: cinnamon, apples, and pecans in chocolate!

  10. avatar Amy Kennedy reply

    Call of the Wild – port wine caramel – is there even a question!!!

  11. avatar Vanessa reply

    My family hails from Central America which means I like everything with spice. Combine that with peanut butter and you have a masterpiece. My vote is for the Peanut Butter + Chipotle, keeping my fingers crossed :)

  12. avatar Megan D. reply

    Some delicious Sea is for Carmel sounds amazing!!

  13. avatar Anna A. reply

    The Port Wine Caramel sauce sounds delicious!

  14. avatar Nancy Oben reply

    Those chocolate bars look so decadent.

  15. avatar Leah Romulus reply

    I would love to try a dark chocolate bar from Sweeteeth! YUM!

  16. avatar Rhian reply

    All the chocolate bars sound delicious but if I had to pick one to try first it would be the A’Chocolypse!

  17. avatar Rhian reply

    I tweeted: https://twitter.com/#!/JASIVRAS/status/187632061228650497

  18. avatar Kelsey Bjelland reply

    Salted caramel sauce?? Get out! I’m so hungry now!

  19. avatar Cecilia reply

    If you could get a Texas chocolate sheet cake with pecans and vanilla ice cream in a push pop I would be in heaven!

  20. avatar Sam Crisp reply

    Mmmmmmm sea is for caramel looks divine!

  21. avatar Afton reply

    First of all, I LOVE chocolate!!! The Sea is for Caramel bar looks amazing. There are not many things greater than the pairing of chocolate, caramel and salt!

  22. avatar megan reply

    call of the wild chocolate sounds delish!

  23. avatar megan reply

    and i tweeted at @meg1t.

  24. avatar Sarah reply

    I would put a brownie sundae in a push pop :) YUM!

  25. avatar Paige reply

    Tough choice, but I think I’d go for the salted caramel!

  26. avatar Michelle D. reply

    They all sound great but i would choose Cinnapsis.

  27. avatar Kristy reply

    I would try strawberry shortcake for the push pop : )

  28. avatar Kristy reply

  32. avatar Alex reply

    I would love to try the salted caramel bar

  33. avatar Elizabeth @ HobbyLobbyist reply

    Everything is better in a push pop… I think it could be my favorite way to eat cheesecake ever.

  34. avatar Amanda Zerra reply

    I would most certainly put Tiramisu in a push up pop. How fab and delicious!

  35. avatar Amanda Zerra reply

    I also just tweeted! @babyglitz

  36. avatar Brittney Perryman reply

    Narrowing my choice down to just one chocolate bar from Sweeteeth that I want to try was TOUGH! My first choice would have to be Call of the Wild! The name drew me in first and when I read the description, I WAS HOOKED! Dark chocolate and caramel that has wine in it?!?! YES PLEASE! In fact, I may just have to order a dozen or two! :)

  37. avatar Brittney Perryman reply

    I just tweeted! My handle is @britmperryman ! Here’s the link: https://twitter.com/#!/britmperryman

    Keep up the fantastic work ladies! I just love y’alls work!

  2. avatar Kelly Edm reply

    I tweeted the giveaway! https://twitter.com/#!/jarslikejam/status/187157796301705216

  3. avatar Kelly Edm reply

    My favorite nostalgia candy would have to be ribbon candy. My grandma used to buy it every Christmas and it was always so fun to see the bright colors peaking through the candy jar. I haven’t had it in years, and last Christmas I finally found some, but unfortunately, it just wasn’t the same as grandma’s.

  4. avatar Emily reply

    My favorite nostalgia candy is the clear rock candy! Pure sugar – so sweet and delicious, and they look pretty too!

  5. avatar Laura reply

    I think my favorite nostalgia candy are the soft peppermints pillows. You could always count on my Nana having a dish at her house.

  6. avatar Sarah reply

    Happy Birthday!! My favorite is the All Natural Butterscotch Lollipop

  7. avatar Ashley @ Make It Darling reply

    My favorite nostalgia candy is Necco Wafers in chocolate…yummmmm!

  15. avatar Selina reply

    I tweeted here…https://twitter.com/#!/Camikinz21. Thank you.

  16. avatar Courtney Croxdale reply

    My favorite nostalgia candy would definitely be Zotz. I love that they were imported to the US in the 60’s from ITALY and their tongue-tickling fizz, but I especially love buying a string a cracker barrel and splitting them with my fiance!

  17. avatar Heather Oakes reply

    My favorite nostalgia candy has to be the candy cane! My grandmom always hung them on her Christmas tree, and we cousins would always sneak them off throughout the holiday season!

  18. avatar Heather Oakes reply

    I just tweeted!

  19. avatar Heather Oakes reply

    I just liked Hammond’s Candies and Southern Weddings (can’t believe I hadn’t already…) on Facebook!

    I liked your Facebook page and the one for Hammond’s as well! :)

  23. avatar Anna A. reply

  24. avatar Brittany Teague reply

  25. avatar Brittany Teague reply

    I tweeted I just entered the @HammondsCandies giveaway on @iloveswmag from @Abteague

  26. avatar Brittany Teague reply

  27. avatar laura reply

    rock candy! yum!

  28. avatar Amanda Zerra reply

    I LOVE ALL CANDY! AHH! My absolute favorite (besides the obvious, anything chocolate) would have to be lemon drops. I cannot get enough of them!

  29. avatar Rachel G. reply

    My favorite old candy is rock candy-it reminds me of going on field trips in elementary school where there would always be rock candy in the gift shop!

  30. avatar Robbie reply

    I have so many favorite nostalgic candies :) I love candy necklaces, because they remind me of when my sisters and I would ride bikes down to the dime store, and buy those, along with ring pops, push pops, etc. with our allowance money! We have so many great memories of that dime store and the candies.

  31. avatar Kennedy reply

    I love me some taffy! Happy birthday!

  40. avatar Cecilia reply

    Werther’s Caramels. My great uncle carried them in his pocket and would give my five siblings and I one every time we saw him.

  41. avatar Larissa reply

    I love taking a break with a kit kat bar!

  42. avatar Afton Cole reply

    The milk chocolate caramels look amazing! My grandma and grandpa always had caramels in their house for the grandkids to eat. The ribbon candy also brings back fond memories of my childhood!

    The Bourbon Sugar Churro with Cajeta flavor sounds amazing, because anything that is marshmallow and somehow churro related must be amazing. I think they would be best with the chocolate drink mix. Yummo! :-)

  27. avatar Brittany reply

    The Salty Caramel Twist! I just love the combination of caramel and salt especially with some chocolate!

  28. avatar christie reply
