I wonder how it is. The word ”old” is not something desirable at any age and I remember when someone told me that being younger is an advantage, exactly when I was thinking that experience that comes in years of practice is an imbatable argument. But today, it’s about ”Famous Old Time”, the famous actually slogan that drives me into a world of indulgence, and warm, and perfect taste. It’s not easy for me to enter into a world of candies with a history longer than 100 years because it’s overwhelming just thinking about how much things have happened in so many years, but I am confident because I think that besides the perfect recipe for the best candies, the owners of this wonderful world have found the best kept secret of the success in business and they are very glad to share it with the whole world through a magic piece of chocolate made it at See’s Candies.
Quality Without Compromise, the motto of this beautiful chocolate shop makes that every product to be luxurious and exquisite.
I have in mind Milk California Brittle, a little piece of chocolate, a buttery brittle with California almonds, crunchy, melt-in-your-mouth toffee brittle generously wrapped in rich milk chocolate. Mmmm… And Café Au Lait Truffle, a smooth, rich truffle center of white chocolate, cream and coffee covered in rich dark chocolate and decorated with milk chocolate lace. And Almond Truffle, a rich, smooth truffle center with semi-sweet and milk chocolate, enrobed in white chocolate and covered with roasted almond pieces. Or Milk Pecan Bud which are little pieces of Pecan halves with buttery caramel covered with smooth milk chocolate.
And I am thinking about Kona Mocha candy, a creamy center of coffee and milk chocolate covered in white chocolate and topped with toasted coconut flakes, and Milk Chelsea candy, a creamy soft center with chocolate liquor and pecans covered in smooth milk chocolate, and how to enjoy of Milk Divinity, laying on a sunny day by the pool, that little candy with fluffy white chocolate center studded with English walnuts and covered in smooth milk chocolate.
A visit to See’s Candies shop at the 189 The Grove Drive, Los Angeles, CA, is something very special because here I can find the best chocolate and candy in Los Angeles. This is actually the retail chocolate shop where I can create my own custom mixed box of chocolate and candies, or I can choose from a very large variety of boxed chocolates, truffles, nuts and chews, lollipops or even sugar free candies.
Did you knew that there is a National Lollipop Day? This is the perfect celebration with amazing lollipops from See’s Candies, I have to mark this on my calendar.
And this shop has Pick Up Service, which means that I can make the order online and then I just pick up my candies from the See’s location.
And there is even National Chocolate Day on 28 October, which is another perfect moment to celebrate. With candies from See’s Candies. I don’t know why, but I think we should celebrate chocolate everyday, don’t you agree?
Well, I have to decide myself about the order, since I am going to this shop to pick up my delicious candies.
I added to bag online 3 boxes of Milk California Brittle, 4 Gift Of Elegance boxes which is a truly impressive assortment of the best candies, four pounds of finest chocolates and candies, presented in a gold box with organza ribbon, 4 Truffles boxes with 12 pieces each of the best truffles made with the finest ingredients of dairy-fresh butter, heavy cream, real fruit and milk and dark chocolate, 6 Maple Cashew Brittle boxes with whole roasted premium cashews combined with fresh butter, pure sugar, and just the right touch of rich maple flavour, 2 Star-Spangled Boxes with 14 pieces of chocolates each that includes Milk Chocolate Balls, Milk Molasses Chips and Milk Butterscotch Square and 2 Snack Collection boxes full with Peanut Brittles, Assorted Little Pops and Peppermint Twists.
And if I go to Las Vegas or New York, there are See’s Candies shops there too. Actually there are over 200 See’s Candies shops across America and there is the online shop www.sees.com, where even the most demanding client can be satisfied.
The iconic black-and-white shops are inspired by Mary See’s kitchen, the founder of this wonderful shops in 1921, where there are only high quality chocolates and candies, made after her recipes based only on the finest, freshest ingredients.
