Oh, chocolate lovers. Be prepared to drool.

Pittsburgh chocolate lovers, the good news? You, too, can indulge in some See’s Candies any time you’d like – their newest location at Ross Park Mall (across from the food court) had their Grand Opening on Friday morning.

Not located in Pittsburgh? No fear. See’s Candies is new to us in the store format – we’ve had mall kiosks, but this is the first store to open. Around the holidays, you might be able to find a kiosk in your mall or airport, but odds are there’s a See’s near you (check out their finder to be sure).

And better yet? If you have a store near you, and want to sample, all you have to do is ask. See’s Candies gladly gives out samples to anyone who walks into their store. See something you’d like to try before you buy? Just ask.

To be honest, I can’t even tell you what all I tasted when I was in the store. For sure, I tried the Milk Bordeaux (a best seller), Key Lime, Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, and Raspberry Creme truffles. Don’t even think about the calories, I tried not to. But the chocolate was honestly so fresh and amazing, I really don’t know if I’ll ever be able to eat any other chocolate without comparing it to this heavenly deliciousness. I can’t be blamed.

Not a huge chocolate fan? No worries. They have peanut brittle (Greg’s favorite, I think), nuts, lollipops (which last a really long time), sours, and other treats. So much to chose from! (And of course, gift cards should you need to, you know get a great blogger friend a gift.)

Right now, the store is set for Halloween, I am definitely going back to check out the Christmas prep!

All boxes are hand packed, just like the “I Love Lucy” episode (which was actually filmed at the See’s plant!). Automation just doesn’t look as good. They hand dip the bon bons, too. We all got a chance to try our hand at boxing chocolates like Lucy. Greg and I were NOT great at this activity, coming in dead last. (Maybe if I wasn’t taking photos?)

Hungry? Get yourself to See’s Candies and ask for a sample. Then take home a box. You can buy one piece, three, pieces, or 10 pounds (or any combination you’d like of any flavor they have in the store). Not picky? Grab a pre-made box that is just as fresh. You won’t be sorry…just take a few extra laps around the mall to balance it out (that’s what I did). 🙂

  1. It was great seeing you again!  I’m glad you made it to See’s.  This post is really a great recap of the night and See’s!  😉

  2. Oh yum, this looks like so much fun. I recently tried some of their candy and I was sooo impressed. It’s outstanding! Their Rootbeer Lollipops were crazy good!

  3. I love See’s candy. I’m glad there is not a store close to me as my waist could not handle the temptation!

  4. See’s candy is SO GOOD! We love to go in and get samples, then end up feeling guilty we took so many free samples we buy a ton of chocolate to bring home. It’s so delicious!

  5. Yum!!  I don’t think I have actually ever tried See’s Candies.  I have seen them all across the web, but still never tried.  Looks like you had a blast!  What a yummy event!!

  6. Oh my….these look sooo good. I’ve heard of See’s Candies, but never tried them….I have to after seeing these pics!! 🙂

  7. We have an Ethel M chocolate factory here and it is SO awesome to visit!! I think we shoould hit them all up!! like… a blogger chocolate road trip! 🙂

  8. Oh yes!  I think Sees candies was started here in California (if my old
    memory serves me right) and  we do our best (until the holidays) to
    stay out of that store!   Looks like you found a lot of fun and
    something good for everyone!   LOVE them!!

  9. You are killing me! I grew up on Sees (yes, my mom fed me other things, too) but I don’t have ANY stores near me. I always get a box when I go back home to visit my mom. 🙂

  10. Despite being a chain, I really like that the store has a mom and pop feel. And let’s not forget about the free piece of candy! I’m sure I wouldn’t eat just one and would leave with a bag!
