Morning Glory Confections Giveaway!

March 12, 2010

Three things I love:

Bacon.

Candy.

People that make special things with special ingredients.

aaaand bonus.  You.  I think you’re awful swell.

Because I love all of these things, I thought I’d share a little something with you.

Morning Glory Confections is a Los Angeles based artisan brittle and candy company.  We’re talking handmade, small batch candy with amazing flavor combinations.  

The best part?  I want to send you some!

The Bacon, Spanish Paprika and Cashew Brittle recently roused my interest.  It’s sweet and smoky with just a lingering bit of salt and spice.  It’s absolutely delightful.

Because I couldn’t help myself, I also tried the Almond and Bacon Dragees.  Lightly candied and crunchy almonds triple coated in semi sweet chocolate, dusted in cocoa powder and tiny bacon crumbled.  Subtle.  Chocolate.  The perfect crunch.  I ate them for breakfast this morning… I wish I were kidding.

And because I couldn’t order from Morning Glory without getting my absolute favorite treat… I also got a Fleur de Sel Peanut Brittle.  It’s perfectly salty and sweet and marvelous.  

I’m sharing with you!  Three of you darling people will win some Morning Glory.  Just leave a comment on this post from now until Saturday at midnight.  Say hi.  Tell me my hair looks nice… it’ll make me feel good.  ooOh happy day!

  • Bacon is my absolute favorite food!! I gave it up for lent, so I am in a bit of withdrawl. Wonderful giveaway! :)

  • Joy, you always make me smile! You’re the first cooking site in my RSS reader that I look at every morning. That ought to make you happy :)

  • Oh these sound and look yummy! I have never found anything like this in Australia.

    Hope you are not going too crazy with your packing and moving!

    btw I love ur curly hair! I have dead straight hair and always wanted curls like yours.

  • Hey Joy, it’s 6am here in New York. Why am I awake, you ask?

    Well, I just had a heart stopping incident occur that involved my completely looney tunes grandmother sneaking out of the house at 6am to put some garbage bags out and my dog (Lando) and I believing she was an intruder entering the house in the wee morning hours.

    I wish I were kidding.

    Needless to say, it ended with me, a baseball bat, my glasses (which I never wear), hastily thrown on my face, and an extremely ticked off grandma in a Garfield nightgown. (No one was harmed, but I was roused from a perfectly decent sleep.)

    Why am I sharing this? Well, I feel that today, this morning- I could really use some delicious confections.

  • Hello! I haven’t seen it, but I’m sure your hair looks lovely today. But I do like your adorable vintage dresses, and I hope the move is going well!

    All those Morning Glory confections look so delicious!

  • I really like color of you hair. I have been trying to get something like you have for a long time ;/ I love it :)
    And I love your blog,i’m here everyday :)

  • Hey Joy,

    These sound amazing. Then again, that’s why I come here, for all of the amazing. Folks in these parts are growing familiar with “Joy the Baker” as I bake more delicious goodies from your site.

    Oh, and cute hair.

    :)

  • I’ve been wanting to try bacon chocolate for forever and a day. And your hair does look good. I have hair somewhat like yours and I can never get it to not be frizzy. You should totally share your beauty secrets.

  • Oh my gosh. These look delicious. Yummy. Perfect. A perfect giveaway – thanks sooooo much!
    I really love your hair, by the way – I always envy people with awesome curly hair.

  • Woah… these look ridiculously delicious. My stomach wants.

  • Oh, I’ve been drooling over the Peanut and Fleur de Sel for months, but haven’t been able to justify ordering it when I’m the only person in the house that eats brittle. Maybe I just need some advice on how to ignore my annoying conscience and get over my guilt…?

    In any case, your hair looks great! Especially after all of that painting you’ve been up to lately. I saw your Tweet about the navy and grey paint (which made me think of “Haze Gray and Underway!”) – are we going to see any fabulous pics?? :) Good luck with moving day!!

  • I’d love to try some!

  • Hey – I was just on their website a few days ago! That bacon, paprika, and cashew brittle looks out of this world. I wish Swiss confectioners would be more experimental with their flavors.

    Thanks for your email, by the way, I look forward to getting my package soon. Hope the moving is going well!

  • Ooo, new things I haven’t heard of!

    These people sound awesome, and so does their goodies.

    I second the first comment, you’re adorkable! And I am jealous of your hair.

  • Joy, I love those three things as well!

    Love the blog, its like my secret happy place is a chaotic world (but I share it with everyone who will listen)

    hope the move is going well!

    ps… Your hair looks amazing, how do you get it to look so natural, but controlled?
