I was reading Dad or Alive’s 14 Things NOT to Get Your Wife for Valentine’s Day shared by Amy at Carriage Before Marriage as a public service for men everywhere. #6 on her list was drug store chocolates with the reasoning,
A big box of crap movie theater candy does not make a girl feel special—it just gives her calorie anxiety. If you know she loves chocolate, step up your game and go gourmet, like truffles, preferably tequila infused, bacon stuffed or diamond encrusted.
While See’s Candies may not be diamond encrusted, my husband knows that they’re my favorite and to not just buy any old box of See’s. It’s a testament to his love for me that he will always bring a box of Soft Centers when flying home through any California airport and if he has time during his trip, will stop at a See’s retail location to hand pick a box of my favorites.
And I’ll admit it, I’m a big sucker for a heart shaped box of See’s Candies when it comes to Valentine’s Day. This year I’m thrilled that See’s has heart shaped boxes full of their fabulous assorted chocolates but also traditional 1 pound hearts featuring just nuts and chews, dark chocolates, or milk chocolates ($22.40 each).
Not a fan of red heart shaped boxes of chocolates? A Pink Satin Heart (1 lb, 6 oz, $38.50) featuring milk and dark chocolates along with See’s most popular truffles, soft centers, nuts and chews, and delicious favorites like Lemon Truffle, Dark Patties, Mocha and Milk Chips.
For the guy in your life who loves chocolate, I suggest the Tuxedo Heart. The one pound box includes Lemon Truffle, Dark Walnut Square, Divinity Puff, Mocha, Dark Chocolate Butter, Milk Bordeaux™ and more in a box featuring a formal satin bowtie, felt lapels and red satin vest.
For your little loves, See’s offers darling choices that’s just enough chocolate for a sweet treat without a sugar rush as long as it’s not consumed in a single sitting. My favorite for our two kids are the Teddy Bear Box ($6.85). We also really like the Milk Chocolate Foil Hearts that are wrapped in bright red foil ($6.40) and Dark Chocolate Foil Hearts (pink shiny foil, $6.40).

I received See’s Candies in exchange for this post but it’s only a small drop in the bucket compared to all the See’s I’ve personally purchased through my years of existence. See’s obsession is purely my own and was well developed prior to being contacted by See’s . Images courtesy of See’s Candies.
