Did someone say chocolate?
I live for chocolate, but not just any chocolate will do. When I was a kid growing up in California, chocolate meant Sees Candy (I suppose if I looked closely, I would find that my mom was rather obsessed). We would get Sees candies for every holiday, and frequently when we stopped at the mall. If nothing else we ALWAYS visited the Sees Candy store for a free sample.
My childhood was filled with Sees, and to this day I can still identify many of their chocolate truffles simply by their shape, color, and design.
Of course, I always keep my eyes open for my favorites, like the Scotchmallow (creamy caramel on the bottom, rich honey marshmallow on top, covered in dark chocolate perfection) or the classic dark chocolate Bordeaux (a creamy brown sugar center covered in dark chocolate and sprinkles). We would always hand-pick a box of chocolates and fill it to the rim with our favorite variety.
So when I was offered the chance to review an 8 oz. Silver Box Chocolate Assortment, I jumped at the opportunity. Unlike my home state of California, Sees Candies are much harder to find out here in the DC area, and I miss my regular Sees fix (don’t feel too bad for me, though. My mom still mails me at least one box a year).
The Silver Box is the perfect size for me (except the kids insisted I share with them!). With 15 pieces of chocolate in the 8 ounce box, it will still enough for my family of 7 to have two pieces of chocolate each. Guess who got that last “extra” piece? The Silver Box included some of my favorites and a few that I rarely get – it’s good for me to expand and try new flavors every once in a while!
