UPDATE: We've extended our special giveaway through Friday. So, you've got the rest of today to wow us with your candy trivia and win a Gummi Light, mental_floss t-shirt and/or the rest of my Halloween candy (see below).
Halloween is all about getting free stuff. So in that spirit, let us tell you about our special Halloween giveaway. The virtual trick-or-treater who brings us the most fascinating piece of candy trivia wins an incredibly cool Gummi Light (retail price: $125), courtesy of the nostalgic home furnishings designer Jellio. And we'll throw in the mental_floss t-shirt of your choosing.
The contest ends at
noon Eastern 11:59pm Pacific Time on Friday. Mario Marsicano "“ the proprietor of Jellio "“ will select the winning trivia tidbit over the weekend.
You can enter up to four times, in separate comments. Good luck!
Read on for great reader-submitted candy trivia, and another picture of the Gummi Light. PLUS, we just sweetened the deal.
In addition to awarding a Gummi Light and free shirt to the best candy-trivia supplier, one lucky participant can win all of Jason's leftover Halloween candy! We've picked a random number (call it 'x'). If you leave comment number 'x,' you win! We'll wrap your candy in a free mental_floss t-shirt, too.
