See’s Candy and a Giveaway

 

GIVEAWAY OVER! 

Linda won with the comment, I learned about See’s candy from my mother-in-law many years ago. She absolutely loved it and said it was the best candy out there, bar none. She always brought our two girls goody baskets at Easter but hubby and I got a box of See’s. I’ll never forget that…it was a lovely, fun tradition. My favorite flavors were the fruit filled. Mmmm good.

Thanks for entering everyone!

I am a west coast girl. I was born and raised in Oregon. So, when See’s Candy, a company founded on the west coast, contacted me about working with them on a giveaway, I was excited, because it is a company and candy, that I know and love.

I grew up knowing all about Sees Candy. It was the chocolate of choice, especially for special occasions. I remember well giving and receiving See’s Candy during the holidays. And I remember going into the store at the mall and being amazed at all the different choices of chocolate.

My favorite of the See’s Chocolate has always been the fruit filled ones. You just can’t go wrong the raspberry cream or the lemon, but the pecan candy and the brittle are also very good.  Really, I am not sure I can pick a favorite See’s Candy because they are all so good.

And for those of you with allergies and food issues they even have an allergen page on their site. They sent my daughter who has the nut allergy some of their little pops and they were really good.

Now for the giveaway.

See’s Candy is giving away 1- $25 gift card to one of my readers. 

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment, but I would love to hear what your favorite flavor or memory of See’s Candy is.

One entry per person. Giveaway will end Tuesday, June 12th, at 6 pm CST.

For more information please see my giveaway policy. 

Disclaimer: I received free product from See’s Candy, but my thoughts and opinions are my own.

  21. I have never tried Sees candy, but I would love to win and give them a try.

  22. As an Oregon girl myself (now living in Germany), I can’t remember a family holiday or gathering growing up that didn’t have a variety dish of See’s candy out, or a Christmas that didn’t have a little box of See’s chocolates in our stockings. Not to say that living in Bavaria, Germany I haven’t had some amazing chocolate, but nothing compares with the ones that bring back childhood memories! :)

  32. I have never tried See’s candy, but I love chocolate.

  33. I live on the opposite coast, so my only experience with See’s Candy is the box of lollipops my boss brings back every year when he goes to San Francisco. That box lasts all of 10 minutes in the break room when it arrives :)

  34. love, love LOVE See’s Candy! Growing up, these were for holidays and special celebrations! When I would get a 1/2 lb box of milk choc Bordeau at Christmas, I was in heaven!!

  35. Jennifer M. says:

    I haven’t tried See’s but I would like to try a new brand of chocolate.

  36. The only time I have had See’s Candy was when a client mailed me a box many years ago and it was really good. We don’t have a See’s here in TN– that I know of. This was back when I worked for Opryland USA (theme park) which closed in 1997.

  37. Jennifer says:

    I was first introduced to See’s Candy from my friend in Japan. Her family is from California and she had grown up loving it! Her parents mailed her some in Japan and she let us all try it! When we traveled to Hong Kong, they had a See’s Candy shop there! We were so excited :) I have since had it in California, too, when visiting family. Yum!

  38. My favorite are the raspberry cremes!

  39. jessica everette says:

    Boxed chocolates are so much more wonderful than regular candy bars. All the variety and little pieces make any occasion seem extra special! I would love to try See’s chocolates and see how they compare!

    Every year at Christmas when my extended family gets together we get a big box of See’s to enjoy.

  41. Ole Gunderson says:

  43. Tammy Ash says:

    I live in the Midwest but my bestfriend lives on the West Coast for the past 22 years and every year she sends me a box on my birthday. I LOVE LOVE the fruit filled ones also. I can’t say I even have a favorite. I would be so excited to win this gift card.

  44. I :heart: See’s! Growing up in Hawaii, anytime anyone would go to the “mainland”, we’d request See’s souvenirs. I love the lollipops. Especially the Chocolate! Yummy!

    I’ve never heard of See’s Candy – would love to try them.

  48. Hi. I grew up in Issaquah, WA. We all loved See’s candies. My pastor’s wife, who adored them, would give them as gifts. You always knew what to buy her. We would get the variety boxes, but I also like the chocolate lollipops. I now live in Wisconsin, but still love to have a box of chocolates!

  49. I love See’s Candy! We grew up in California and it was part of any important holiday or celebration. My favorite was getting a Butter Brickle Chocolate Egg at Easter.

  50. I live in Northern MN and don’t think I’ve ever seen See’s. I went on their website though and the toffeettes look sooo good. :)

  51. blueberry truffle/mint truffle…. Depending on the day and the mood:) Also I love the fact that 2 truffles = 3 ww points (just a fun little fyi when the need arises)

  52. MaryFrances says:

    I don’t remember which particular See’s candy I tried/purchased but, I remember moaning aloud about its creamy decadence. I had heard about them and in 2008 my husband and I were in Las Vegas, NV and came upon a See’s candy shoppe – I told him they were suppose to be the ultimate chocolate … he isn’t big on chocolate. I was, am and always will be … Mmmmmm See’s!

  53. Carolyn S says:

    I have never had them…would love to give them a try though!

  54. I’ve never had See’s Candy, but I have always loved getting chocolate covered cherries as a present. My best friend knows of my love for them : )

  55. I rec’d a box of See’s Candy as a gift a very long time ago. My favorite is the raspberry cream filled…OMG. But, honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of them…LOL. Thanks for the opportunity for a chance to win.

  56. Oh wow! How awesome they giving away a gift card! I am born and raised in Southern California! We LOVED sees candy! My dad would ALWAYS get us the little hearts for Valentines day and Christmas! We would wait in line to try a sample! So yummy! I have since moved, my husband is in the military and we are now in the Midwest.. What!? No Sees!? I just about cried! I would love the gift card of course! Thanks for the opportunity to bring back some of my childhood memories! :)

  57. As a Cali girl, I know ALL about See’s! My favorite is their toffee covered in chocolate and nuts. I think it might be called California Toffee, but I’m not sure. I also love their dark chocolate covered almonds. YUM!!! :)

  58. theresa Adkins says:

    Im new to the west..but discovered that Sees at our local mall carried ‘Scotch Kisses” — without a doubt the very best candy out there. I dont get to get any except at Christmas time…they are fairly expensive and not in our budget, but i do dream of them often…..if you get a chance, try them. (Caramel and marshmellow – yum) I would love some right now…you had to make me think about them didnt you…..

  59. I remember my dad always went to See’s because he’s diabetic and they had REALLY GOOD sugar-free candies, but he would always bring me those awesome suckers See’s has!

  60. Nicole Cox says:

    I have not heard of See’s Candy but would LOVE to try it!

  61. Samantha says:

    I love them all!

  62. Sees is great chocolates!! I grew up in the midwest but lived in Portland, OR for a few years and LOVED going to Sees. Thanks for the reminder of those great memories!

  63. kimberly says:

    love See’s!!!! My favorite memory is going with my great Aunt Kate and piking out my favorite at the time and then at Easter she would give me a small box filled with the favorite for that time…so special to remember that I think I need to take my son and do the same thing:)

  64. I used to live in California. The thing I love about See’s is that you can go in to the store and fill up the box with the flavors you want, so you don’t get a bunch of flavors that you don’t like. My favorite is the Victorian Toffee (or something like that). I also love their peanut brittle.

  65. My MIL looooves See’s candy. When she gets some she lets me have some of her favorite nut’s n’ chews :)

  66. Cindy W. says:

    I don’t live close to a See’s shop but my sister sent me the most amazing caramel covered marshmellows. They are SO good!

  67. Jean Wavle says:

    Live in Pittsburgh but can’t wait for the holidays when the See’s candy kisosks pop up at the mall. The caramels are the best, but the raspberry creams are right up there. I want a piece right now!!

  68. Carla Phillips says:

    The sales reps from that area used to send See’s candy for the office staff at Christmas. I love the caramel type but the brittles are yummy too.

  69. Oooh, the little strips of toffee covered in chocolate that come tree together.
    Yum those are good!

  70. kathy steadman says:

    My favorite memory with sees candy is eathing them! They are so yummy!

  71. cindy hamilton says:

    caramel, caramel, caramel!!!

  72. Karin Goodman says:

    The mint patties are the best, but also the carmel. I like nuts, but leave them out of my brownies and chocolate. The mint patties as sooo much better that the less expensive versions.

  73. Colleen D. says:

    I STILL live in Oregon and STILL love See’s Candy! I grew up eating a 1 lb box, after a 1 lb. box, after another 1 lb. box. I think you get the idea! My favorite, if I have to choose just one, is the raspberry cream. But maybe it’s the key lime pie truffles. Or maybe it’s the apple pie truffles. How about the walnut bar?

  74. I grew up in SoCal so I know Sees too! My favorite assortment is the nuts and chews. You used to be able to get a solid sheet of the chocolate covered toffee in a box with a little hammer to break it up!

  75. Hard choices….I think my favorite is the key lime truffle or the almond truffle. They are all so good….hmm..rum nugents too :)
