See's Candies Brings Back Wonderful Memories {Review}

When we lived in Los Angeles, there was one store we'd always make a point to go into whenever we had a chance: See's Candies. They had the BEST chocolate I had ever eaten, and whenever you passed through the doors, a friendly See's worker would hold out a piece of candy and ask, "Would you like to try our <insert name of one of their 100+ varieties of chocolates>  today?" FREE CHOCOLATE! I learned that my favorites are Dark Bordeaux, Scotch Kiss, and Walnut Square. My oldest, who was just a little guy at the time, knew that he could always walk out of there with a Vanilla or Butterscotch Lollipop stuck in his mouth.

When we moved back east, I knew that See's Candies would be one of the things I'd miss most about L.A. Real candy stores are few and far between around here and, if you happen to find one, you're not going to get a free sample every time you walk into the store! Imagine how thrilled I was to find that See's Candies can be ordered online and even via catalog.

I received my first catalog in the mail about a year ago. I leafed through it over and over, reliving memories and drooling over some of my favorites. Things got busy, as they always do, and I set the catalog on the counter to take care of Little Guy. When my oldest arrived home from school, he saw that catalog and suddenly remembered all of the great times he'd had at See's Candy with me and his dad. He did the same thing I did with the catalog, often asking me if he ever tried this or that variety and whether he liked it. Seeing how thrilled he was about that catalog, I was able to save up a little extra money and ordered him a big box of chocolates for his birthday. He still has the box, which he keeps all of his important little mementos of L.A. in.

Do you have any candy stores in your area like See's Candies? 
Or, maybe memories of great candy stores from your youth? 
I'd love to hear them!
