I had an opportunity to try some special treats from See’s to facilitate my review.
First up was a custom box. This is an ideal gift for yourself or someone who loves certain types of candies or if you want to sample new flavors! You can fill it with entirely one flavor or create a delectable combo.
Some of the ones I tried were the pineapple truffles which were heavenly! They really melt in your mouth and had a natural pineapple flavor, very tropical. The raspberry truffles had a lovely tart finish. I also tried the dark chocolate truffles which are perfect for any chocoholic with their rich, creamy truffle center of semi-sweet chocolate and chocolate liquor. They are then covered in smooth dark chocolate and topped with a chocolate and nut rough. The maple walnut was unique and flavorful if you love maple like I do. I loved the Mayfair with its nuts, cherries and vanilla covered in creamy milk chocolate. I also tried Scotchmallows for the first time, and let me just say that these will be on my order list every time from now on! They have a layer of caramel with a layer of honey marshmallow covered in rich, dark chocolate. Amazing! Also, no custom box would be complete for me without my favorite which is the Dark Buttercream. I know other stores have buttercreams, but, for me, See’s buttercreams are tops out of all of them.
My order arrived very well-packaged with cooler packs to keep everything incredbly fresh!
I also got to sample the Mini-Wishes box! There is also a larger sized box. Both are ideal for Mother’s Day and the box is so gorgeous with its pink blossom on top. It’s definitely something you want to keep afterward for trinkets or treasures. The mini-wishes box includes Milk Chocolate Hearts, Dark Butterchew, Divinity and more.
Other smaller items I recommend are: Celebration Hearts
These would be great for parties, weddings, showers, any other happy celebration or as thank-you gifts. You get a good amount of melty and delicious solid milk chocolate hearts wrapped in gold and silver foil. These are beautifully dressed up with an elegant white organza bow.
I especially love:
the Peppermint Twists!
It’s hard to describe what makes these my favorite peppermint candies but I’ll try! The flavor is not too strong like some peppermints but it’s a delicious sweet flavor and they are like fluffy clouds! As they dissolve, you really experience a light airiness that is delightful! The price is wonderful too.
So, what would you buy with your $25 gift card? Best of luck to everyone and Happy Mother’s Day!
