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.
Welcome to the Be Our Valentine Event!  Its a Valentines-related giveaway hop, so you can follow along below with over 50 other bloggers who are all bringing you a sweet Valentines-related giveaway!
Men, if you’re ever in doubt about what to give your girl for Valentine’s, know that no woman I know would ever turn down a box of See’s Candies!  A box of chocolates is always a sweet gesture, but a box of See’s sings straight to the heart.
 Sees-Candies
Honestly, any box of See’s is bound to be a home run.  I’m becoming quite the See’s connoisseur, and I still have yet to find a chocolate that didn’t rock my world.  The beauty of their array of products is that you can select variety boxes full of an assortment of wonders, or you can specialize into what you know are already true favorites like I did.  This time around, I picked out two of my favorite delicacies and got a full box of both 🙂
 IMG_9265
First are these Peanut Butter Patties.  They are just like glorified reese’s, but with a thicker chocolate shell so there’s really a crunch of chocolate when you bite into it.  The peanut butter has the perfect consistency with more flavor than you’d expect–as if there is more sugar, more salt, higher-quality butter, etc.  A full box of these is bound to go a long ways.  I can’t eat more than one in a sitting before I’m satisfied and happy to close the box for another treat later.

And then there’s the all-time-favorite Scotchmallows.  What a delicious combination of dark chocolate, marshmallow, and caramel!
IMG_9270
These are delicious any way you eat them, but may I suggest you let them sit at normal room temp for a while before chomping 🙂 I was keeping these hidden from my boys in my upstairs sewing room, which is probably 10 degrees colder than the rest of the house, and so the marsh was a little chewier than normal.  Still delicious.  It didn’t stop me from pounding a few more before I hid the box again.
 IMG_9272
Lastly, I picked out a bag of See’s Chocolate Chips.  A quick glance will show you the difference between these and normal chips.  The size is twice as big, and the unique irregularities in shape make them a little more gourmet than normal.  On their own, they are the same delicious See’s chocolate that I know and love, so I can’t wait to bake with these!!  Talk about taking your baking to the next level.

Should I really tell my husband I have 2 boxes of the most delectable chocolates upstairs?  Still debating.

I often marvel at how the fall and winter holidays can be so centered around food!  Some might argue that the point of Halloween is to obtain candy, there is practically nothing to Thanksgiving without a huge turkey feast, and what would Christmas be with all the beautiful and delicious treats and candies!  One year, we gave all our family members a box of chocolates, and since then, I think of Christmas and fine chocolates together!  If you’re also a chocolate-lover and a Christmas fanatic, you probably already know about See’s Candies and their delicious fine chocolates.  They carry a lovely array of Christmas gifts and chocolates that are so beautiful and tasty, they’d make fantastic gifts, stocking stuffers, or just wonderful treats to enjoy while cozied up around the fireplace.

Having reviewed See’s before (see my previous review HERE), I knew what I really loved, so this time around, I went straight for a box of Holiday Fancy.  I have only raving reviews for this box.

IMG_8655

Charlie and I were trying to get out the door for a 5th Wedding Anniversary getaway weekend, and knowing these were on the way, we were pretty bummed that they hadn’t arrived yet.  Surprise, surprise, they had JUST been dropped on our doorstep on our way to the car!  We snatched them up with glee, and spent all weekend eating these lovelies.  So. Dang. Good.

 IMG_8652This box is filled with milk, dark and white chocolates, including Cashew Brittle, Caramel, Divinity Puff and Almond Square.  Every piece was remarkable.  Honestly, after ever piece, we would moan about how good it was.  Even the cream-filled, which are usually not my favorite, were just wonderful in my book.

See this thick round one that looks like an ottoman?  Scotchmallows.  My all-time favorite See’s chocolate.

We also tried See’s Old-Fashioned Fudge Assortment!

IMG_8857This we saved for when we had company visiting.  We opened the box and passed around the fudge all night while we played Clue :).  This is perfect for holiday get-togethers.

fudgeThese fudges are packed with nuts.  Vanilla Walnut, Chocolate Walnut, and Bordeauxâ„¢ Pecan.  I’m a nut-lover, so I thought these were delicious, and boy, does this fudge last forever.  My less-of-a-nut-lover hubby still ate practically the entire chocolate bar (see above right picture) without complaint.

“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:

318asschocv3bigNuts and Chews:

334ncv3bigAnd Chocolate and Variety:

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 🙂

IMG_4463

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.

IMG_4443

 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!
