Second Chance Give-Away - Cherry Republic Gift Box

I recently had the opportunity to review some delightfully tasty items from Cherry Republic . . . and give a gift box of these items away! Sadly, the person who won did not get their contact information to me, so I'm having a second-chance give-away for this delicious prize!


The Cherry Republic gift box includes the following items . . . 
  • Cherry Strawberry Preserves . . . Josiah and Caleb spend most Friday nights at my house for a sleep-over; on Saturday morning we usually have pancakes for breakfast and what could possibly be better on pancakes than peanut butter and jam? When the jam is Cherry Strawberry preserves it is beyond enjoyable! Tart and yet sweet this is a jam which is sure to be a favorite!
  • Dried Cherries . . . not only are dried cherries good for you, but they taste amazing! They make such a delicious snack and a wonderful addition to breads, salads and desserts! I LOVE Cherry Republic dried cherries! I could munch on these all day long!
  • Dark Chocolate Cherry Toffee . . . yes, Toffee!!! Cherry Republic had this to say about this amazing treat; "Made by hand in a small candy kitchen, it's even better than mom used to make because we have added (hold onto your hat) cherries! It is a delicious blend of dark chocolates, cherry, and crunchy toffee." Oh my! I have a new favorite treat! I can assure you it absolutely lives up to what they have to say about it; and even goes far, far beyond! Dark Chocolate Cherry Toffee is so delicious . . . I hope Cherry Republic keeps this on their list of always available items because I LOVE it!
The second-chance drawing will be on March 7, 2014 (USA only)!  So . . . if you are over the age of 18 you may enter by commenting below to let me know your favorite way to eat cherries . . . this is difficult, as there are so many wonderful ways to enjoy cherries, but I would have to say my favorite is in a cherry pie . . . although Dark Chocolate Cherry Toffee certainly has the possibility of rising to the top of my, "favorite ways to have cherries" list!


Additional entries in this give-away are available if you follow on Google+, Google Friend Connect, follow by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share!) This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win the cherry gift box and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!

    1 yellow cake mix
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    1. Pour Cherry Pie filling into greased crock pot
    2. Combine dry cake mix and butter until crumbly, sprinkle over cherry filling. Do not stir!
    3. Cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours.

  6. WHAT A FANTASTIC PRIZE!!!!! I love dried cherries in dark chocolate bark. My boys and I make bark for Valentine gifts each year. We love to send it snail mail to our friends and family far away. Being a military family we don't get to see our relatives very often so they LOVE to receive little parcels from us, especially when it contain chocolate!!! My hubby LOVES dried cherries and eats them by the handful. Since moving to our new base we haven't found a shop that carries them so he's had to replace them with raisins which aren't his favorite. This would be SUCH a blessing to him. Thanks for the chance to enter. Your blog is such a bright spot in my day. I like you on Facebook, have shared this post and think I follow on Google + but I'm really not too good with technology!!! Thanks again and have a terrific day!
