Need a quick, yummy gift for Christmas or any other occasion? For generations of Californians, the answer has been a box of See’s Candies. With stores that sport a black-and-white checkerboard design and offer a galaxy of sweets — chocolates, peanut brittle, butterscotch lollipops — the South San Francisco-based company is nostalgia in a box or bag.
Today, we talk about See's on the occasion of the chain's 100th anniversary — and we do a taste test! (What's that white-chocolate one that Gustavo has never liked?)
Host: Gustavo Arellano
