It's a random Tuesday afternoon and you get the craving for chocolate-covered espresso beans. You're out of luck unless you want to travel far and wide in search of them, right? Wrong.
Goodies Galore, a sweets shop located in the Tramway shopping center, boasts pounds of these delicious caffeinated beans -- along with all kinds of other white-, milk-, and dark-chocolate covered goodies (my son is partial to the marshmallows, my husband to the oreos, and one day I'll try the potato chips).
You'll also find treats like candied apples, caramel clusters, and all the novelty candy (including an entire sour/sweet sugar bar and rock candy suckers) you could ask for. And in case you're need to please several palates, there's plenty of ice cream, roasted nuts, popcorn, and soda-shop beverages to keep the whole family happy.
But don't take our word for it. Head over to the shop and taste owner Gloria Sasser's mouth-watering treats for yourself. In fact, if you go to Goodies Galore between now and 10 pm on Tuesday, August 3, you'll be entered into a giveaway to win a $25 gift certificate to the store. Here's how:
1. Go to Goodies Galore and sign the sheet owner Gloria is keeping at her register. This will earn you entry into the giveaway.That's it! Simple, painless, and you'll have the chance to sample some of the tasty, made-with-love goodies that Gloria whips up fresh just for her Sanford customers while you're at it.
2. Tell your friends about Goodies Galore and this giveaway via your Facebook or Twitter page. This will earn you an additional entry.
3. Tell your friends to put your name in the "referred by" field on the sign-in sheet at the store. This will earn you an additional entry.
Remember: The contest will close at 10 pm in one week. We will select a winner at random from the names on the sheet (along with the additional entries). Notice that numbers 2 and 3 above are for additional entries. You will not be entered into the contest without signing the sheet, so be sure you stop by the store.
See you at Goodies Galore!
