SandersCandy.com Review and Giveaway!

I have a die hard sweet tooth. Try as I might (which isn't very hard :D) I can't shake it. My weakness? Ice cream! Better yet, an ice cream sundae! Drool!
I heard about Sanders Candy after trying some of their Pe-Candy Crunch and I looked them up online to find out they are based in  MI, my home state! How have I gone my whole life without hearing about them? Especially since they have been nominated for "Best Dessert"!

Sanders Candy was started by Fred Sanders on June 17th 1875 and has since opened 57 stores, many in the Detroit Metropolitian area. Not only do they sell deliciouis candy, but many amazing dessert toppings, coffee and cocoa, and many other delightful treats.

I was thrilled to review 4 of their dessert toppings: Swiss Dark Fudge Topping, Bittersweet Fudge Topping, Butterscotch Caramel Topping, and Milk Chocolate Hot Fudge. Of course I already had ice cream stocked in the freezer so I dove right in. A small sacrifice, I assure you ;)
I actually put a single scoop in four small dessert dishes so I could try each topping all at once! Of course, my 3 yr old wasn't far behind so I shared with him. Each one was creamy and rich. I'm a huge Dark Chocolate fan and the Swiss Dark Fudge did not disappoint! Although, of the four flavors, my favorite was the Butterscotch Caramel. I had to stop myself from licking the bowl clean (insert embarrassed face here!)

Buy it: Check out SandersCandy.com and buy any of the Sanders Candy Dessert Toppings, and many other tasty morsels while you are there!

Win it: One lucky reader will receive the Ice Cream Parlor Basket! Delish!
