Valentines Day Giveaway, carousel of nuts.
What You Could Win:  This is the Southern Supreme 20 oz. Chocolate Nut Carousel.  It contains home grown peanuts, along with cashews, pecans, and Brazil nuts, all hand dipped in milk chocolate. Only available during the cooler months, we’ll be shipping one to your house, direct from Southern Supreme, if your name is chosen in our random drawing.  Good Luck!

Southern Supreme is very well known in North Carolina as the maker of the Southern Supreme Nutty Fruitcake.  It’s not your ordinary fruitcake and it’s delivered around the world right from Bear Creek, North Carolina.

I visit Southern Supreme a couple of times each year, and have purchased many of my Christmas gifts from them over the past years.  Each time I visit, I have to grab a box or jar of their Chocolate Covered Peanuts to enjoy on the ride home.  And enjoy them I do.  I could eat the whole jar in one sitting, but somehow I manage to save a few for later.  It’s really tough though.

I know you’ll enjoy this Nutty Chocolate gift and I’d love to send one to you.  Place your answer to our question in the Comment Section below. Again, there is no right or wrong answer, winner will be chosen at random.

Contest ends Sunday midnight on February 09, 2014.  I’ll post the winner the following Monday morning, and you’ll just need to come back to see if you’ve won.  The winner will need to send us your name and mailing address via our Contact Page, and we’ll send your order right out, hopefully in time for Valentines Day.

Important, Technical, Official, Disclaimer Stuff:  This contest is being paid for and sponsored in it’s entirety by Taste of Southern.  We are not affiliated with Southern Supreme in anyway other than we just enjoy their products and want to share our North Carolina goodies with the world.  We will need to share your shipping address with Southern Supreme in order to complete delivery.  Pictures are property of Southern Supreme.  Thanks for tuning in.

NOW:  Go ahead and enter.  Good Luck!

    Milk chocolate! My fav is cashews covered in white chocolate…. awesome…

  47. Sarah G. says:

    Both are great! Flowers are really beautiful, but if I HAD to choose just one, I’ll say chocolate. I have a huge sweet tooth!

  48. Cathy Sewell says:

    I love them both but usually give chocolates, especially if giving to my husband.

  49. GAZELLE Q says:

    Flowers and chocolates!

  50. Ann Turner says:

    If I had to choose between the two, I would choose flowers, but you can never go wrong with chocolate!

  51. Chocolates – for sure :+)

  52. susan says:

    Chocolates are aways better. Flowers usually don’t last that long, but neither does the chocolate, BUT they go better with a good bottle of red.

  55. Sheena says:

    Chocolate. It tastes better than flowers 🙂

  56. Denise says:

    I love both but if I had to pick one I would choose flowers especially if they are part of a plant. That way I can remember the gift giver every time I look at it and take care of it. I love to give both to granddaughters.
    I just recently found this site and I immediately tried the beef tips and rice and made your buttermilk biscuits to go with it. The first time I made biscuits from scratch. The pictures and the detail explanations were great!! My husband and I thank you!

  57. Annalee says:

    Definitely CHOCOLATE!

  60. Michael says:

  67. Heather zeh says:

    If I had to choose I’d go with chocolate!

  68. Emily says:

    Although I do love to get both, if I had to pick I would pick chocolate!!! My taste buds are much more appreciative than my eyesight!!! Also, I was in the very small group of people that did not watch the super bowl last night. My husband is not a football fan and I am certainly not. Now if it was a NASCAR race-say like the Daytona 500-he would be all over it!!!

  99. Amanda B. says:

    Think this one is easy for most of us ladies…we usually like both! Lolz. If I had to pick one…I’d go with the chocolates, unless the flowers are attached to a potted plant. Thats one of my fave gifts for any occasion instead of a floral arrangement…a nice plant that I can enjoy and remember the thoughtful giftgiver each time I care for it. 🙂 As far as giving, I do chocolate because my husband loves it and has yet to mention his favorite flower…:-P
