For those of you who have been Tech Savvy Mama readers for awhile, you know that I have had a long love affair with See’s Candies! Having grown up with See’s, one of my hidden talents is being able to look at a box and know what lies inside each piece! I have fond memories of enjoying them with my grandmother, am a master at using the custom mix creator to select favorites online for delivery by mail now that we don’t live near a retail store with a choose-your-own counter, and have educated my children on the fine subtleties of each piece so they can ensure they’re selecting a piece they love whether faced with a box of Soft Centers, Holiday Fancy Assorted Chocolates, or a Festive Favorites Gift Pack.
Since my mother has always said “those who care, share,” it wouldn’t be fair of me to not share See’s Countdown to Christmas sweepstakes. Each day you have the opportunity to win daily prizes of tasty treats! There’s also a grand prize of a lifetime supply of See’s Candies via $6500 worth of gift cards! Mmmm!
It takes just a few seconds to enter by entering your email and address in case you’re a daily winner. If you’re so inclined, you can get up to 3 extra entries per day for sharing the Countdown to Christmas with friends via email or your social channels.
Another fun aspect of See’s Countdown to Christmas is that it is like an advent calendar with a fun idea for each day. Download a free PDF for See’s inspired gift tags, a Mad Libs-style holiday fill in the blanks, instructions for a lollipop wreath on the 6th, a behind the scenes look at the making of See’s, Mary See’s Original Chewy Chocolate Cookie Recipe, and more!
If I’ve made you crave candy or helped you with a last minute gift idea, there are See’s Candies retail locations around the country for the holiday season. Finding one is as easy as typing in your zip code to find the nearest one and See’s gift cards make great presents since you can always order online!

Yes, I blogged for chocolate. You would too! All opinions are my own and based on the many pounds of See’s I have personally purchased and consumed in my many years. Images courtesy of See’s Candies.
