Contest Winners!

To recap yesterday's contest question --

What is this box used for
when it's reassembled?


The answer is --

CANDY CANES!


This box was a bitch to reassemble, by the way.
If I'd been smart, I would have taken 
the photos in reverse order.

Incidentally, I bought candy canes for 
the first time in years because I made some 
white chocolate candy cane bark 
for Christmas. 

What? 
We didn't already have 
enough calories in the house,
I swear it.


Actually, we have quite a few winners!
I guess this contest wasn't as hard
as I thought it would be!

Congrats and a hearty elbow bump
go out to the following
who got the answer right --

Tundra Bunny
(who sniffed "Too easy!")

Bruce.desertrat
(who had conveniently watched
the candy cane episode of
The Discovery Channel's all-day
"How It's Made" marathon on
Christmas Day)

Old Lurker
(who pretended he
thought the box was for my
"collection of slender, minty-flavored
dild...uh...pleasure devices")

Mistress Maddie
(who of course referenced
 his own "covid dildos collection")

And for those who didn't come up 
with the right answer -- 
thanks for all the imaginative guesses!

I would've been so lost. Congratulations to all the winners who are way smarter than I am!

So much fun, I will admit to breaking down a candy cane box to put in recycling just last week, , that’s the only reason I knew what it was. Thanks for the fun, take care,

Travel said...

In my weird brain, I reconstructed the box, and thought what would go in there? I don't think I have ever seen pleasure sticks sold by the dozen.

Martha said...

I knew it looked familiar but it's been so many years since I've bought candy canes I would have never guessed.

Bob said...

I never would have guessed candy canes OR dild.... pleasure devices.

Mike said...

Would you believe I was sitting here eating a candy cane out of a box just like that and couldn't figure it out? Yeah, I wouldn't believe it either.

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

Hahaha
You deleted it? LMAOOO
Oh, it happens to all of us. And I think I wrote that I had absolutely no idea what the box was for and that I cackled when you mentioned what Lurkie said?
Anyway, it was fun!

XOXO

Congratulations to the winners.

Tasker Dunham said...

Damn and blast it! How did I not know that?

As often as I have bought candy canes, never entered my mind. Good contest!

Mistress Maddie said...

I think you should do these again. It's fun to try and guess what it is. Apparently Lurker and I shop the same emporiums. Jokes aside I buy candy canes so I recognized pretty quick.

Mistress Maddie said...

Ill send you my catalog Travel!!!!!!!!

Old Lurker said...

Tsk, tsk. That Maddie has a filthy mind.

Deedles said...

Ya know, I haven't bought candy canes in too many years to mention and I've never purchased them in bulk so I would've never had guessed right. I always bought the really big ones and would poke a hole in a lemon and stick it in there before sucking. Yummy. I was a kid, so don't judge me!
Lurkster, you're just now figuring out that Maddie has a filthy mind? You haven't been paying attention.

RO said...

So fun, and I NEVER would have guessed in a zillion years!(lol) Kudos to the winners and those who came up with such creative responses too. Happy New Year! Hugs, RO

DVArtist said...

Copngrats to the winners. I never buy candy canes so didn't know. LOL have a great day.

Brian Joseph said...

Congratulations to the winners!

He white chocolate candy cane bark sounds delicious.

Tundra Bunny said...

@Bob's guess of "vaccine syringes" deserves a shout out too! I almost did a spit-take when I read it, LOL!

Suz said...

That was a good one. I never would have figured it out myself.....what a pity. I'll still be expecting a distanced elbow bump from my fave Canadian.

e said...

Didn't you try all sorts of candy canes one year and post about it? That gave me the idea...

Magaly Guerrero said...

I wish we had a picture of you the moment you realized you had to put the thing back together.

Moving with Mitchell said...

I love it! I didn't even attempt to guess and never would have gotten there! And so many clever people... or people who've eaten A LOT of candy canes.

Liz Hinds said...

You had a whole box of candy canes?!

This N That said...

I did not see this in time to enter my guess but it would’ve been Christmas tree lights and wrong! The candy canes Sound yummy. Congratulations to the winners....

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ e -- Yes, I did a post on candy canes last Christmas but I hasten to add that I did NOT personally taste test them all! Too much sugar even for me!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Magaly Guerrero -- Oh, the air was blue, believe me. And then, once the box was reassembled, I had to fish the remaining candy canes out of the garbage so they could model for a photo shoot in the box.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Liz Hinds -- The bark recipe calls for 8 candy canes. The box holds 16. I didn't want to make 2 batches of the bark or eat those candy canes -- too much sugar. So he remaining 8 went in the garbage but I had to fish them out so they could model in the photo shoot of the box.

Joanne Noragon said...

Congratulations to them. All of 'em.

Congrads to all those who got it. Like always a dollar short and day late.
Coffee is on and stay safe.

Martha said...

Well, I'm too late to take a guess. But...I would have guessed wrong!

Boud said...

I love the alternative, nsfw guesses!

Magic Love Crow said...

Darn it, I missed the contest! LOL! Congrats everyone! White chocolate candy cane bark??? Yummy!!! Big Hugs!

Fundy Blue said...

LOL! I thought "starting gate for miniature horses" was especially creative.

Linda said...

Oh, no kitten... Congratulations to who guessed it right!
