See’s Candies {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

“You had me at chocolate”, said a friend of mine when I told her I had 3 pounds of See’s Candies chocolate to review!  With such a splendor of goodness, keeping it all to myself would have been wonderful seemed silly when I could invite friends and make a “Chocolate Party” out of it!

Sees-CandiesCharles See opened the first See’s Candies shop in Los Angeles in November of 1921.  The sparkling clean, black and white shop was designed to resemble the home kitchen of his mother, Mary See.  Now you know why black and white checkers is their signature branding!  My stash included three different boxes of divine goodness.  First, Assorted Chocolates:

323chocvaryv3bigWhere to begin?!   Everything arrived nice and cool in a big box of very well protected foam and several ice packs.  Not thinking at all, I took the boxes upstairs to my sewing room (where I hide all the treats and untouchables from my boys!), and forgot about them for a few days, also forgetting that this room doesn’t get any a/c!  We had an awful heat spell and after a few days of what must of have been over 90 degrees up there, I remembered the chocolates and was sure they’d be a melted mess.  Not so!  They looked perfectly preserved and untouched, and our party was still on 🙂

Of course, we loved every bite!  These chocolates are so filling, too.  The four of us ate to our heart’s content, filled up baggies to take home to the husbands, and I still had a full box’s worth at the end of the night.  If only one person was hacking away at a box, they’d be spoiled every night for weeks!

Our thoughts: What a great variety!  Obviously, these are high-quality chocolates, and nothing waxy about them.  They each were creamy and flavorful.  A favorite of the night were the Scotchmallows, and you can actually buy an entire box of just these from See’s.  One of my friends was particularly excited about these because See’s are almost no where to be found on the East Coast.  We all remember seeing these in stores all over Utah and kiosks in nearly every West Coast airport, but they’re just not readily available in Boston.

We also decided that See’s has perfected their caramel.  Their caramel chocolates are not too chewy that you find yourself chomping forever on things stuck to your teeth.  One friend mentioned how she’s not really a nut person, but she really enjoyed chocolates from the “Nuts and Chews” box.

 Another favorite quote of the night: “I never met a See’s chocolate I didn’t like”.  A box of chocolates really is the most wonderful gift, and you can’t go wrong with See’s.  I personally think a box of See’s would be the greatest birthday gift, anniversary gift, baby shower gift, get-well gift, graduation gift, etc.  Check out their many varieties, especially their fun assorted lollypops!  Great for summer!
