Our big fat Jelly Belly Event!

Mark your calendars -The Jelly Belly Van is coming to The Candy Basket on Monday, September 21 !!

The forty foot, fully wrapped Jelly Belly® on Tour Bus will be hosting a sampling event this coming Monday from 10 am-2 pm at our sweet little store!

We're inviting everyone to spin the Beanboozled™ Wheel and take the challenge to compare some of their tastier, most popular flavors with their craziest ones (grass? pepper?).

The good JB folks are offering prizes with purchases, free samples, a drawing, and Lots of Fun!

We look forward to this special event for everyone who can come by on Monday, September 21 from 10:00 to 2:00.

Gone in 60 Seconds!

Actually, that's the name of a wonderful dip we are sampling all day Saturday!
The name says it really is fab, and once you start eating it, it's hard to stop!

We got the recipe from the Prairie Gypsies, a trio of talented Oklahoma epicureans who have a thriving business in the metro area. They also produce the fantastic Red Hot Lover Pepper Jam. We have been selling their products, including this incredible hot jam for several years. It's great with cream cheese, too, but we like to go the extra mile and do the "Gone in 60 Seconds" dip.

Tomorrow (Saturday, the 5th), we're sampling this dip/jam combo until it's gone, and if you come in and mention that you saw this on our blog, we'll give you 20% off the price of the jam (regularly $6.99). This is just what you'll want to have on hand tomorrow evening for the OU season opener!

See y'all Saturday!

My mouth is watering just LOOKING at the pictures of these fabulous Godiva truffles which are arriving tomorrow!
They are the tried and true Pumpkin Spice truffle, which is like eating (really good) pumpkin pie in a Godiva chocolate crust.....the new Black Raspberry truffle, with a wonderful tart raspberry and sweet Godiva white and milk chocolate shell...and their newest Autumnal offering - a Cinnamon Pear truffle!
You'll have to wait for us to do some, um, quality control, of course! After our staff has sampled and deemed delicious, we'll have these fabulous fall truffles available to you by the piece or we can pack you a box.

Come and get 'em!
