Trader Joe's Holiday YUMMIES for my VERY 1st GIVEAWAY!!!


There are three types of "Joe" people... 
1 - Those who know Joe....and visit Joe often....and LOVE Joe.
2 - Those who don't know Joe, who may or may not have heard of him. 
3 - Those who knew Joe at some point in their life, but moved to a "Joe-less" place, but are more than happy to hook up whenever they go back to the old stomping ground.

Luckily for you, THIS giveaway is for all three types of Joe's people.  I, for the record, was group 1, then group 3, and happily again group 1.  I simply LOVE Trader Joe's!  I love to try out all the luscious, yummy things they get in seasonally.  I love even more calling my Mom (who only knows Joe through me) and taunting explaining to her what amazing new product I just tried. 
So, there was never any doubt that for my 1st GIVEAWAY, I would share some of my favorite Joe items with YOU!  Take a closer look at what one lucky winner will receive....
Really Big Gingerbread Man Kit
Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce.  Also known as HEAVEN on a spoon!  PERFECT for a million things...in fact I add a spoonful of it, along with a pinch of salt to some hot chocolate for a knock off version of a certain Sea Salt Caramel Hot Chocolate at the place that rhymes with Shmarbucks.
Wine Crackers.  These perfect, slightly vanilla-y crackers ARE delightful with wine OR coffee.
Mulling Spice.  Two words....Mulled Wine.  It is also perfectly lovely for Mulled Cider for the non-wine crowd.
Salted Caramel Butter Cookies with chocolate....'nuff said.
Speaking of chocolate...Dark Chocolate After Dinner Mints.
All lovingly packaged in this super-cute, eco-friendly re-useable grocery bag. 
How do you win these spectacular bag-o-yummies you ask?  Let me tell you....on Monday, December 6th, I will use the Random Number Generator to pick a number from the comments in this post.  Cut-off for entries will be Sunday, December 5th at midnight, East Coast time.  Since my I like to up the odds for you, there are several ways you can get entries:
  • Leave a comment letting me know which one of these treats will be the first visitor to your mouth.
  • Become a FOLLOWER of Siggy Spice.  Simply hit the "follow" button to the right and then come back and leave ANOTHER comment letting me know that you are a new OR existing follower.
  • "LIKE" Siggy Spice on Face Book.  Follow the link on this page to go to the Siggy Spice Face Book page, and click "like".  Then, come back here and leave ANOTHER comment to let me know that you are a new OR existing fan on Face Book.
  • Link to this giveaway on your Face Book, Twitter, or Blog (or all three) and come back and leave ANOTHER comment letting me know you did so.  If you do all 3, leave 3 comments for each way you re-posted this.
  • Annnddd, I might (wink, wink) slip another (or two) way to get entries on the Face Book page and in my upcoming posts this week.
Just to be clear, if you want to lick the Caramel Sauce off a spoon immediately, become (or are) a follower on Siggy Spice, become (or are) a fan on the Siggy Spice Face Book page, and link this giveaway on your Face Book page, then you need to give me 4 separate comments on this post to let me know each way you got an entry.  The Random Number Generator will only see number of comments.

Just as a small side note, this giveaway is only available for those that live in the US. 
AND
Trader Joe's did not provide any of the merchandise for this give away, nor did they sponsor it in any way.  All they know me as is the crazy lady who is constantly chasing after 3 kiddos who are hitting people with the mini shopping carts while looking for the SQUIRREL!

Again, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your support over the last hundred posts!

MUCH love to you all - xoxo

Ready....set....GO!!!
