Who loves a good candy counting game? Well, most of you do! We had so much fun with our holiday candies counting contest in December that we’re bringing it back for Valentine’s Day. We’re running the contest from Saturday, February 4 through Wednesday night, February 8 at midnight. Winners will be notified by email on Thursday, February 9.

In this edition of the candy counting contest, we’re using those tiny Conversation Hearts that are so popular around Valentine’s day. We filled a nice little jar with a big red heart adorning the stopper with as many of the little candies as we could stuff into it and still be able to get the lid on it!

Now it is time to guess the total number of Conversation Hearts in the jar. We placed a quarter next to the jar to give some kind of context for size. Give it your best shot. You can only enter once (through the comments section on this post, our newsletter, or our Facebook page), so think about your answer carefully! Three $25 gift certificates will go to the top three guesses (one to each winner).

* If there are three correct guesses, those entrants automatically win!

* If there are more than three correct guesses, the winning entrants’ names will be placed into a random drawing.

* If there are one or two correct answers submitted, those entrants automatically win and

* The next closest correct entries, up to no more than a total of 10 entries, will be entered into a random drawing for the remaining gift certificate(s).

 Post your guess in the comments section of this post. Please include your first name and last name initial, and where you are from. Comments are moderated so your guess will not be shared until after the end of the contest.

Remember, your guess must be posted by Wednesday night, February 8, at midnight. Have fun and good luck! And, thank you for being Recollections customer.
