A New See's Candies Store Opening - PLUS a Giveaway!!

When See’s Candies invited me to another local store opening, I jumped at the chance. …You don’t turn down free chocolate!

Earrings - Nickel & Suede

My sweet friend, Lauren, from Imperfect & Fabulous, came along, too and we explored this sneak preview of the new store at Fashion Island, in Newport Beach, together!! (It's right by Macy's, guys. - Super convenient to quickly park and run in for a treat or gift!)

See's Candies has been around since 1921, and the all black and white stores are modeled after the real Mary See's kitchen, which all consist of my fave black/white large tile floors!

 Every guest that walks into a See's Candies store is offered a free sample! How's that for customer service?!

Also. Ready to have your mind blown?  I was handed two candies to eat at once. Strawberry Cream and Peanut is like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!! OMG it was truly so, so amazing!

See's sells over 26 million pounds of chocolate a year! Total win for all those gift recipients.

Which See's Candies chocolates are your favorite??
Two of the top sellers are MY fave, the Bordeaux, and also the Scotchmallow.

I love that See’s has these events in the fall because that means…Seasonal Pie Truffle samples!!!!

The Pie Truffles are glorious! And you can buy a whole sampler box of them, for yourself or someone special on your Holiday shopping list.
Another thing I found existed this trip - Milk chocolate Bordeauxs...without the sprinkles! OMG, my dreams are coming true, you guys!

At this fun pre-grand opening event we got a behind the scenes tour, and even got to (race!) to fill our own boxes of candy to take home!

Now it is your turn to check out the store!
One lucky reader will win a $25 Gift Card to See's Candies!! You can give the gift card as the perfect gift! Or, you can use it to go shopping for yourself, or pick up some Holiday gifts for others!
