5th Annual “Give Thanks with the Gift of Cookies” Giveaway

Our favorite giveaway is back again for the fifth (can you believe it?) year and we couldn’t be more excited. If you ever lack faith in humanity, please take time to read the entries in this giveaway or any from years one, two, three, or four. There’s something incredible about the act of giving thanks in a public way and add to that the joy of being able to surprise someone with an amazing gourmet gift as a show of gratitude.

With Thanksgiving approaching, we have much to be thankful for at Mrs. Fields and we know that you do too. We also know that the perfect way to express your gratitude is with the gift of cookies. Once again, we are giving away three fabulous prizes to deserving people nominated by you! We’ll deliver them, along with your thanks, just in time for Thanksgiving! Why? Because the only thing better than winning a Mrs. Fields Secrets giveaway is winning one for somebody else!

How does it work?

Leave a comment answering this question: Who would you like to thank and why?

The contest will run from now until Sunday, November 24th, after which three winners will be selected to receive one of three incredible prizes:

First prize is our Classic Cookie and Brownie Bonus Tray with 48 cookies and 24 brownies. We like to refer to it as an instant party and the perfect Thanksgiving fare.

Second prize is our Fabulous Fall Leaves Box, an amazing medley of our original cookies and hand-frosted cookies.

Third prize is our Bites of Fall Box. It’s an elegant gift that arrives with a variety of our bite-sized cookies and melt-in-your-mouth frosted cookies.

Giveaway: Share Your Worst Date Story

When it comes to finding true love, most of us have to encounter a few bumps in the road. Today we have a fun giveaway, where you get a chance to step up to the mic and share your best “Worst Date” moment ever. So, come on, tell us. Was it the time your blind date showed up at your doorstep with his mother? Or when you had an allergic reaction to your date’s perfume and your face swelled up like a balloon? We know you’ve got something terrifically terrible to share, so ‘fess up.

But don’t think this is all for nothing. I want to help turn your sour experience into a sweet one. Three lucky (previously unlucky) winners will be chosen to receive a freshly delivered gift from Mrs. Fields Gifts, shipped just in time for Valentine’s Day!

First prize is our Perfect Valentine Basket, loaded with two dozen of our mouthwatering new frosted cookies. That’s worth the time you broke your nose in an awkward goodnight kiss, isn’t it?

Giveaway: Share Your Silliest Skiing Story

We’re starting the new year off with a giveaway that will warm your memory and tickle your funny bone. The ski slopes are running at full force this time of year, which means that there are hilarious skiing stories born every 2.3 seconds (according to my calculations). I want to hear your silliest, funniest, most outrageous skiing story. Tell me about the time you mistook a diamond run for the bunny slope, or when you accidentally managed to put your skis on backward. ‘Fess up to the time you knocked down all the skis at the lodge, or when your borrowed-and-too-big snow pants fell down around your ankles during a romantic run with your first date.

I know those stories are out there, so share them in the comments section below and be entered to win one of three fabulous, gourmet prizes. (Because nothing heals a bruised ego like sugar, butter, and chocolate.)

Our third place winner will receive our White Pine Personal Bundle, loaded with bite-sized cookies, brownies and candy.

Our second place winner will receive our Golden Ribbon Box, brimming with bite-sized sweets.
