sees candies

I have a sweet tooth, but I do not like store bought sweets. I know most of them have a ton of additives and preservatives that take away from the taste of the few real ingredients they have. Another deterrent of store bought candy for me is the cost, especially during holidays that call for it. It is amazing that  the candy companies can charge 3 times the normal cost of a product during a holiday like Valentine’s Day or Easter when so much candy is bought and consumed. My solution to this problem is to make sweet treats at home because I use only real ingredients and I save so much money by making them at home. I love to bake and I am always searching for recipes that my family as well as your family would love. The only thing I do not make at home are specialty candies that the boys really love. For specialty sweets that are handmade and have real ingredients are the delectable items from See’s Candies. This world wide favorite line of sweets have a heritage as rich as the delicious products they make.

Delicious Homemade Chocolates And Candies

I was intrigued by the thought of  a company that made delicious homemade chocolates and candies with all natural ingredients. It appeared that See’s made their sweets the same way I would make my own. The company, which is based in California, was started in 1921 by Charles See when he came from Canada to go into business for himself. Charles wanted to give a try at making the same delicious confections that his mom Mary had made all of his life. Mary’s original recipes were used the the business remained in the family. Charles, his wife and his mom opened the first See’s Candies shop with an attractive black and white shop which resembled that of Mary’s kitchen at home. Today, Mary’s picture adorns the boxes that are filled with delicious treats and are shipped all over the world.

My family loved the Jelly Bird Eggs, which are yummy chewy fruit flavored speckled candies. The Eggs came in an assortment of lime, lemon, and cherry and are better than any candy of this type I have eaten. The true fruit flavor just shines through with their crisp citrus flavors, which I just love. We also received the Small Lollypop Box, which is a clever chewy candy on a stick and comes in an assortment of flavors. Again, the rich and creamy flavors of the heavy cream, butter and real vanilla, butterscotch, chocolate and cafe latte. The small box has 12 assorted lollypops but are also available in a larger box as well. The final treat we got was the custom box that allows you to choose what you want and how much of it. You can do any combination and there are several sizes you can choose from. My custom box included Almond Squares,Lemon Truffles, Orange Creams, Key Lime Truffle Apricot Delight, Kona Mocha and Dark Coconut. I cannot describe how rich, decadent, smooth, fresh and downright tasty these goodies were. We thoroughly enjoyed our See’s Candies to the very last bite and we already miss them! You can purchase the See’s Candies online as well as in fine retail stores like Macy’s and Dillard’s.
