Trick or Treat Contest!



HAPPY HALLOWEEN, MUSERS!!!

In honor of this special day, we're having a bit of a contest at the Bookshelf Muse.

Becca and I looove to go trick-or-treating, so we've decided to get an early jump on those candy-snatching kids that'll be showing up at your door later tonight.

In fact, we hope that all our Musers will have lots of sugary treats to hand out to us in our comment section, because we've worked really hard on our costumes, see?

Angela
Becca

Now everyone knows that while we'd never turn away any type of sweet morsel, all trick-or-treaters have a favorite treat. You know, one that will make Becca or Angela's eyes light up as our Musers drop them into our cutesy plastic pumpkin pails in the comment section. In fact, we might get SO excited to be given this extra-special treat, we'll hand out a treat of our own in return!

The Game:

Offer each of us a treat in the comment section: ONE treat for each of us per post please. (Gotta watch them hips, you know.) If you offer one of us our favorite, then you win a GHOULISHLY AWESOME PRIZE.

The Ghoulishly Awesome Prize:

A first chapter critique or Picture Book critique, your choice (x 2 Becca and I will both critique it)

Note: 2 Ghoulishly Awesome prizes will be awarded--1 to the first person who guesses Angela's fav, and 1 to the first to guess Becca's fav.

Legal Mumbo-Jumbo:

Feel free to bestow compliments on our costumes and watch the comments section to see which ones turn out to be not our favorites. Enter, following the directions, and then if I post telling you that your choice was not one of our favorites, go ahead and offer us another candy handout! I'll be attentive and won't keep you hanging too long, I promise.

Oh my...was that the doorbell? Better get your candy bowl and go answer it...

Ah! Ah! I SO wanna win!

Angela: Reeses Cups
Becca: Snickers

Angela said...

Ha--I told Becca someone would guess hers right away! Congrats, Beth--Becca's fav is Snickers, so you WIN!

Angela however...while she enjoys the cosmic marriage of peanut butter and chocolate, is still on the lookout for her favorite holiday treat!

Who's next?

Kelly said...

Angela - Butterfinger?
I had to go get more bags of candy yesterday due to my uncontrollable urge to sample the candy...

Angela said...

Butterfingers, while delicious, are not my fav. Feel free to try again!!

PJ Hoover said...

Angela - Candy corn

And you gals are sexy in those costumes!

Angela said...

Candy corn is definitely a Halloween staple, but not my fav! Feel free to try again, my awesomely fashion-astute and complimentary friend!

C.R. Evers said...

Angela, I'll guess a milk chocolate Hersey bar

Christy

Julia said...

Mars bars perhaps?

Angela said...

Mmmm...Mars Bars *slobber*. They are my mother's favorite, but not mine. Keep guessing!

Are we having fun yet? I am!

Angela said...

Sorry, not the milk hershey, either! Keep the treats a'commin'!

Lisa S. Luckey said...

Since Becca loves Snickers, I'm going to drop another one for her.

And I'm going to give Angela a Mounds

Angela said...

Not a Mounds, but I haven't had one in ages, so I'll be sure to enjoy it! There's still room in my pumpkin, so guess again!

I saw your link over on the BlueBoards and decided to pop over.

I'm going to give Becca another Snickers (because you can never have too many) and Angela a 3 Musketeers Bar. (I've been snacking on a quite a few of those today!)

Happy Halloween!

Angela said...

Now my husband loves three musketeers, so I don't even get a chance to eat those in my house.

HINT: My fav is a chocolate bar, so you guys are on the right path.

Keep the guesses coming and feel free to keep trying if you've already guessed! Let's find a winner!!

Anonymous said...

All this talk of chocolate and now I'm getting hungry!

How about a Nestle Crunch bar for Angela?

~Michelle

Angela said...

Nope, but we're getting a bit closer...it isn't a 'gooey center' type chocolate bar...

*watches Becca scarf her favorite bar with envy*

Anonymous said...

Gimme a break, gimme a break, break Angela off a piece of that Kit Kat Bar?

(Now I'm determined to get this and getting hungrier with every guess!)

~Michelle

(PS: I really like your blog and I'm glad I stumbled across it!)

Julia said...

How about a 70% dark chocolate bar from Lindt?
Or...a Dagoba bar
Or...a Dove dark chocolate bar...

Now I cannot stop thinking about chocolate!

Julia said...

oops! I broke the rules... sorry! :^( I will DQ myself... *sigh*

Jessica said...

How about... Hershey's Cookies n Cream?

Angela said...

Nope, I like the kit kats, (especially dark kit kat) but it's the wrong brand. If you think about a very popular Easter treat, you'll hit on the right brand!

Keep the guesses coming folks!

Jessica said...

Those chocolate wafer-bars they sell at Easter?

Angela said...

Rule breaker! Rule Breaker! LOL!

*takes all the candy*

So -murmff- good. *pats stomach*

I'm feeling generous, so I'll just say nope to all of those and please try again, IF you give me a spectacular compliment on my fabulous halloween costume. Fair? I made becca slave for hours over the sewing machine to get it right, after all.... :-)

Julia said...

Cadbury rich dark chocolate bar... and you are ravishing... lovely... out of this world! :^)

Jessica said...

Lovely costume, by the way. :)

Chocolate-covered marshmallow bar thingies?

Angela said...

Jessica--not the cookies and cream, nope. And my favorite chocolate bar is one that's available year-round here in Canada, and is made by the same company that makes a certain, very popular gooey egg-shaped Easter treat.

That's it--no more hints!! Keep the guesses coming!!

PJ Hoover said...

Cadbury pumpkin

Jessica said...

Cadbury Fruit n Nut bar?

Angela said...

Oh, we're getting so close!! Can you feel it?? Nope to those, keep 'em coming, and thanks for all the compliments. Becca really outdid herself this year.

Jessica said...

They ARE great costumes. Sexy, but not.. sluttish. ;)

Cadbury Carmello?

Angela said...

Nope, fraid not, but my pumpkin is practically brimming with chocolate! Yummers!

Jessica said...

Cherry Ripe?

Jessica said...

How about... Turkish Delight?

Julia said...

Cadbury Royal Dark Milk Chocolate... yum!

Uh... you still look ravishing!

Angela said...

*Cough, cough one at a time, Jessica cough cough*

Nope, nope and nope. Not too many left! It's a race!!

Jessica said...

Oops :D

Moro?

Angela said...

Haven't even heard of that one, so nope! I can't wait to take it home and try it.

*Becca attempts to steal candy from my bucket and I slap her hand*

Hey, back off, Princess. These are my chocolate bars...

Jessica said...

Umm... how about a crunchy?

I'm running out of ideas here. haha

Angela said...

At last! At last!! *hugs Crunchie bar*

Congrats, Jessica--perseverence pays off!

Jessica said...

Wooo!

Wait. I won?! Yay!!

*hugs*

So, what exactly did I win? *re-reads rules*

Jessica said...

So... I have a 1 1/2 page preface, and my first chapter (ok, all my chapters...) is short.

So, can I send you my preface too, or do I have to leave it off? *blinks*

Angela said...

Yeah, go ahead and send it. :-)

Becca said...

Woot! I can't believe I missed out on the back-and-forth fun, but at my daughter's tender age, she seems to think this day is just like any other and, therefore, is all about her.

*is scandalized*

Congrats, Beth. I knew it would come out right away, but I must be true to the nougaty goodness that is Snickers.

And Jessica--wow. That was real perseverance there. Can't wait to read both of your pieces!

Jessica said...

What can I say? I wanted to win.
:-)

Thanks for the fun! And Becca, Snickers ARE amazing!

Well, halloween is pretty much about the kiddies... at least you get to have a little fun too. ;)
