See’s Gourmet Lollipops

Posted: November 6, 2011 in Treats

Back to the “Things I Love” portion of this blog…

For Christmas, a few years ago, a professor gave me a box of See’s mixed chocolates. I was immediately hooked and carefully rationed each chocolate in order to make them last as long as possible. Then, on a trip to California, we visited the retro-looking, black and white tiled See’s stores, and were immediately mesmerized by the gleaming stores and creamy candies. This stuff’s the real deal. My grandfather used to surprise us with a trip to the candy counter at a downtown department store to buy us buttery caramels and thick chocolates. One bite of See’s chocolates and I’m right back there with grandpa. Nostalgic. Rich. Just really, really good.

But one can’t go around eating box after box of chocolates, even if they do bring back a rush of fond memories. So when an email from See’s arrived advertising their Gourmet Lollipops, it didn’t take long to talk myself into a box. Smooth butterscotch (my favorite!), creamy vanilla, cafe latte, and rich chocolate, these are lollipops to be savored, not chomped and chewed. Need a 70 calorie dessert? A reward for a job well done? Or just a little treat? Be good to yourself, and reach for a See’s pop. Trust me on this one.
