Review of See's Candies

Candy is something I've always had a weakness for. And while I like chocolate, I'm a bigger fan of chewy caramels, brittles, and toffees.  See's Candies asked us to review some of their special Summer varieties, and I couldn't say no!

They arrived on July 3rd, which was my birthday, so I felt extra special!  I sampled the Summer Variety first (pictured above).  It had a yummy collection of 1 lb. of really unique candies, such as Kona Mocha, Key Lime Truffle, and Apple Pie Truffle! It's available for a limited time, but so worth the wait.  The only thing this box was missing was a key to tell which piece was which. I don't generally eat "sour" candies, so I was surprised to think a piece I chose was a caramel (and instead it was a citrus-flavored creme!)

Next, we sampled what my kids thought was the most amazing treat ever: The Gourmet Lollypops!  These last forever, giving kids many minutes of sweetness that they can't bite or chew.  Flavors include vanilla, Colombian coffee, chocolate and butterscotch, and 30 come in a box! (These are divine with a cup of coffee.)

Finally, I don't have photos of my FAVORITE treat -- we ate it that quickly.  My husband and I indulged in perhaps the most amazing cashew brittle I've ever had. It was buttery, rich, melt-in-your-mouth and crumbly.  Big pieces of cashews were embedded throughout.  I couldn't get enough of this, which is probably why it lasted 2 days between my hubby and I!

I've seen See's Candy at the large furniture store in Omaha, NE, so I'm no stranger to how amazing and fresh their products are.  Having them shipped to my door, however, really felt special, and I highly recommend ordering online for that hard-to-shop-for friend or relative with a sweet tooth!  There really is something for everyone (even sugar-free options!)  Get more info at the See's website!
