Book Tour News & a Huge Diamond Nuts Giveaway!

October 16 12am EST. Giveaway has ended! Winner is entry #330 (Jessica) and has been notified. Thank you for entering!

Diamond Nuts Giveaway

It’s the official Sally’s Candy Addiction book tour launch this week! I totally have butterflies in my stomach. I’ve been planning this tour for 6 months. And, in true form, waited until the very last minute to pack. I loathe packing. Don’t you? Or is unpacking worse? Yeah. It’s worse.

Anyway. My book tour actually began last week with a candy cooking demo (video recap here) and a few book signings in my hometown of Philly. Loved meeting so many readers who live in my area! And now I’m headed out for a 2 month tour around the country. This weekend: Seattle and Portland. Next week: Seattle again. Then Minneapolis and Denver. Then sleeping for 3 days straight before the next stop.

    We love nuts at our house!  Diamond Nuts are the very best brand. Pecans are a favorite however we love them all. What a tasty difference when nuts are added to any candy, cookie, brownie, cake icing, salad!  We eat them for the health benefits as well. Thank you for this fantastic contest!

    Peanuts to eat, but walnuts to bake

  3. Amy Hall on October 12, 2015 at 6:20 pm

    Almonds any day!

  4. chava on October 12, 2015 at 8:17 pm

    definitely pecans!

  5. Virginia G on October 12, 2015 at 10:41 pm

    I love all nuts, but macademia, brazil nuts, and pistachios are my favorites for just straight-up eating!

  6. Sharon on October 13, 2015 at 12:38 am

    I love peanuts!  Peanut butter, anyone!!

  7. Tandi Cortez-Rios on October 13, 2015 at 12:49 am

    Macadamia nuts are my favorite!

  8. Annmarie on October 13, 2015 at 10:46 am

    It is a toss up for me between almonds and pecans but I eat peanut butter with a spoon! Nuts about nuts!!!!

  9. Emilie on October 13, 2015 at 12:03 pm

    Pecans are my favorite (followed VERY CLOSELY by cashews and almonds).

  10. Tanya Schilling on October 13, 2015 at 12:15 pm

    I like them all but Pecans are my very favorite!

  11. Jaclyn Reynolds on October 13, 2015 at 1:27 pm

    Walnuts are my favorite!

  12. Julie on October 13, 2015 at 3:07 pm

    I love walnuts for baking and candy making, but pecans fall in as a close second. We love to snack on cashews, almonds and spiced walnuts and pecans. Honestly, I don’t think there is a nut that we don’t like!

  13. Karla R. on October 13, 2015 at 3:48 pm

    I love peanuts! 

  14. Jenn Morrill on October 13, 2015 at 4:19 pm

    I love pecans, or pekins, as they may be pronounced. But Almonds and Walnuts are fabulous too!

    I wasn’t sure where to ask this question….just wondering, any plans to visit Canada?  

  19. Ellen on October 13, 2015 at 5:50 pm

    My favorite nuts to snack on are almonds, but for baking I love pecans or walnuts.

  20. Nyla on October 13, 2015 at 6:26 pm

    Walnuts are my favorite!!!

  21. Kathryn on October 13, 2015 at 7:09 pm

  23. Laina Tran on October 13, 2015 at 10:06 pm

    Walnuts are my favorite.  I put them in all of my baked goods!

    Hands down PECANS!!!

  29. Jessica Ford on October 14, 2015 at 11:10 am

    Hi Sally!  It was so much fun to meet you last night!  You are just as sweet and adorable in person as I knew you would be!  I am so excited to try more recipes out of your cookbooks.  Good luck with writing the third one.  I know it will be a hit!

    My husband enjoyed talking with Kevin.  When you guys go back to Pike Place Market, make sure you get the mini donuts, right around the corner from the Flying Fish Company.  The cinnamon sugar ones are the best!  Have fun in Seattle!

    xo Jessica
