If See’s advertised itself as a chocolatier, I’d have to give them 3.5 cherries. But they don’t, they call their treats candy, and that distinction escalates their rating to a solid 5-cherries for their chocolaty, crunchy, tasty goodness! If not for yummy-factor, than at least for nostalgia’s sake. I literally can’t conceive of a holiday in my home without a box of See’s accompanying the festivities.
Since childhood, these mini, gourmet candy bars have made their way into every Christmas, Easter, and birthday celebration, with each family member having a favorite.
Dad’s the marzipan, mom’s the dark chocolate with almonds, my brother Chris likes the cherry cordials, Greg’s the healthy one who’d rather eat beef jerky, and I was a “Scotch Mallow” girl (butterscotch and marshmallow covered in chocolate.. mmmm).
While I don’t think these are the most delicate and say, sexy treats, for a romantic affair, I do think they’re fun and hearty chocolates for a family to enjoy on special occasions.
