We'll admit it: we're romantics at heart. We fall hard (and easily) and we aren't going to apologize for it! We love that love can be a bit dramatic, and, like a good dessert, a bit spicy, sometimes salty, and very sweet. So, we embraced that and made the theme of the February giveaway spicy & sweet.
We've rounded some of our favorite sweet and spicy treats and we'll be giving away one collection (worth almost $500); the giveaway is taking place on Instagram but we wanted to show you everything it includes here. So, click through to see what's included and how to enter!
We're starting this month's giveaway off with something sweet and a little salty with the caramels from Helliemae's. The key to this caramel is that it's made deep and dark, just on the edge of burnt, which makes a base for all sorts of flavors from whiskey to passion fruit. With this six month subscription to the Adventure Caramel of The Month Club you'll get a taste of evertyhing from spicy to sweet.
Rather than put the spice and salt in the dish separately, Hepp's combines the two in this Hot Box collection that includes a whole spectrum of spice. From a smoky chipotle salt to the uber-spicy ghost pepper salt, this has every level of spice you could want.
If there's ever a month you can validate chocolate as breakfast food, we think it is February. And Askinosie chocolate agrees with us, which is why they've created this Chocolate for Breakfast Kit. It's got cacao nibs for you to add to your granola, chocolate hazelnut spread to amp up your morning toast, and a coffee chocolate bar because sometimes that's all that'll get you out of bed.
If you're a bit of a commitment-phobe when it comes to cooking, this 3 month subscription from RawSpice is key. You'll get 3 to 4 different spices each month so you can try your hand at different flavors but they only send you enough for a few recipes worth so you can keep things fresh in the kitchen.
Apparently, you've got to be a little bit insane if you want in on this Super Hot Sauce Selection. With hot sauces ranging from insanity to total insanity, these sauces bring the heat.
Ever since our trip to Brazil, we've had a thing for brigadeiros – so much so that we even made brownies inspired by them. But we're picky about which brigadeiros we like and Tinyb has taken the cake. These hand-crafted brigadeiros are made with top ingredients and small enough you can enjoy a few without over indulging. And, just to make sure you try them all, Tinyb is giving away a 6-month subscription to flavor of the month so you'll be set through summer.
Prize: We're giving away one (1) Sweet & Spicy set (worth $500 retail)! While the winner will be sent the hot sauces, salt, and Chocolate for Breakfast kit immediately, the remaining items are subscriptions and will be sent directly from the companies themselves.
Duration: Open until 12AM PT Saturday, February 14th, 2015.
Who Can Enter: Open to US residents 18 years old and older.
How Winner Will Be Chosen: The winner will be chosen at Random.org and will be notified via Instagram, so make sure to check your Instagram inbox. You will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.
