When will we know who are partner is?

Mrrranda 09/16/2012 #

Ok, I have already started getting my candies - assign those partners!

EvetteOgden 09/16/2012 #

@siouxx05 and @tanjch I edited the swap directions and changed the peanut butter to "creme filling" and gave a few more days to sign up. It's fun to get candy so I hope you will sign up!

Mrrranda 09/16/2012 #

Aw, I already bought peanut butter candy, and I'd rather have that than creme filling (harder to find around here, too) - whoever gets me, feel free to send me peanut butter instead.

xoDori 09/19/2012 #

I can't wait to get my partner :D

Welshgirlie 09/19/2012 #

I don't mind getting peanut butter as someone in the house will eat it :) Looking forward to this one :)

Amane 09/19/2012 #

I like peanut butter as well so who ever my partner is feel free to send me something with peanut butter in it

tanjch 09/19/2012 #

signed up :) i like peanut butter, but we don't have any here

cfroggie 09/20/2012 #

I love peanut butter verses creme filling. So I will ask my partner which they prefer. BTW whoever gets me: Peanut butter if you can!

mystuffedmailbox 09/21/2012 #

I would prefer peanut butter as well!

is anyone having trouble like I am trying to find a heart shaped candy? If you can please give me ideas!

Amane 09/24/2012 #

I couldn't find to much either, but i did find a heart shaped sucker

Mrrranda 09/26/2012 #

dmei209 - I've seen heart-shaped lollipops at Cost Plus and (old?) heart-shaped Dove chocolates at Grocery Outlet... We've got a couple local shops that make heart-shaped candies year-round - if you have a place near you that makes gift boxes, like for a gf/bf or loved one, maybe you can hit 'em up for a single bonbon?

dmei209 09/29/2012 #

thank you @mrrranda

EvetteOgden 09/29/2012 #

I am the host and I am also having trouble finding heart candies. I will take Mrrranda's advice. Thanks! I have everything else ready to send. I guess its the wrong time of year for heart candies. Sorry about that, everyone! On paper when I made it, I didn't think it would be hard to find.

Oh, and I am going to say send either (or both???) for the peanut butter or creme filled. Easy Peasy, ok?

kellogg 09/29/2012 #

so what if I can't find heart-shaped?

EvetteOgden 09/29/2012 #

@kellogg send anyway. I will extend the deadline by one week but keep looking. You can send a RED candy if you ABSOLUTELY cannot find a heart shaped candy.

cfroggie 10/ 1/2012 #

So pleased you extended the deadline! Some of these were alot harder than I thought they'd be.

EvetteOgden 10/ 4/2012 #

BRILLIANT REVELATION!!!..."runts" have heart-shaped candies in them! (the pink runts are hearts!) YAY! Mystery solved. ...Now where to find "runts"
