Candy Land The World of Sweets Giveaway

by Erica

Come along on an all-new colorful adventure through the magical world of Candy Land.

One of my favorite childhood games has been redesigned for an even sweeter experience. The best part is that I can share the fun with my own children.

Hasbro has released an updated board design for Candy Land with new enchanted lands filled with sweet surprises around every corner.

The three dimensional board design is filled with adventure:

  • Create delicious treats at the Cupcake Commons to deliver along the way.
  • Participate in a thrilling snowboard race down the Ice Cream Slopes with the Duke of Swirl
  • Take a relaxing train ride through Gummy Hills
  • Climb to the top of Chocolate Mountain
  • Make friends with Gramma Gooey, Lord Licorice, Princess Frostine and Princess Lolly of Lollypop Woods throughout your adventure
  • Race to meet King Kandy at the grand entrance to the Candy Castle

As always, it was a treat playing Candy Land with my kids. We had a blast. While I am still partial to the Candy Land from my childhood, I can tell that my kids appreciated the bright colors and fun additions placed throughout the board.

We also snuck in some ice cream after our Candy Land tournament. I think it is nearly impossible to play that game without having a craving for something sweet.

We want YOU to be one of the first to journey through new, delectable Candy Land. We have 5 games to give away! What a delight! To enter leave a comment below and tell us what your favorite treat is.

This giveaway is open to US addresses only and is void where prohibited. Please see our site’s terms and conditions for more information. This giveaway will close on Friday, October 22nd. We will announce our winners on Saturday, October 23rd.

This giveaway is part of a paid campaign with Hasbro. I received one copy of Candy Land to review and 5 more are being provided as prizing.

Love Candy Land but must make a confession. Used to hide Queen Frostine when I’d play with my kids. They’d always wonder why she was at the bottom of the pile.

My favorite treat is a Grande Starbucks Verona, a great book and 30 minutes to myself.

Hi,

I LOVED CandyLand as a kid and we were so happy to land on any candy, even when it would set you back a little; part of the fun of the game. My “favorite” candy is…actually, I have a REAL sweet tooth, so I like tons of candy, but I really enjoy licorice and sour sticks….so bad for you, but….tasty!

So true to play with your kids, last night, I played GUESS WHO with my two older ones before bed and they were SO happy to play with me, of course, they convinced me to play five games with each of them separately!!!!

But my real favorite treat is my two little grandbabies. They are my delight and I love them so much. I get to do things right that I didn’t do right with my kids. I have learned to play with them. I didn’t know I was supposed to when I raised mine-how stupid I was. I was never taught that and I wish I had known.

My favorite treat is brownie mix….I mix the powder with a little oil & eat it just like that. I’m sure it’s horrible for me, but everyone loves to like the spoon after brownies are mixed up, I’m just doing the same thing without the risk of food poisoning from raw eggs :-)
