Smell that? THAT is the smell of Christmas morning!

What?! You don’t have that tradition. Well, you should.

Every year for at least the last 40, my dad has opened a box of See’s Candy Nuts and Chews to pass around while we opened presents. That, my friends, was breakfast.

And a mighty good breakfast that was. (Just saying.)

See’s Candy is it when it comes to chocolate candies. Just ask any West Coaster you know. See’s is it.

I noticed that when I lived in Kansas City, folks didn’t quite understand this important fact. A See’s shop opened in the local Nebraska Furniture Mart. Hubby went up there on Valentine’s Day for me one year shortly after its opening. It was an undiscovered gem. No lines?! I’m here to clue you in that See’s is the candy to buy this holiday season.

And no, they didn’t ask me to say that. I would shout that from the roof tops.

For a few years, I had to stay away from my beloved Nuts and Chews since my little girl is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. However, I recently found out this wonderful fact about See’s nut-free products. Items like the Assorted Little Pops, Chocolate Caramel Lollypops, Peppermint Twists, and Sour Stars are all nut-free and produced in nut-free facilities. Yeah!

Now I can eat my gooey nuts and chews and my little girl can make her home special Christmas morning memories with safe treats from See’s. We got to sample some of these nut-free candies as well as a box of Nuts and Chews (of course) recently. It took me back to happy days of childhood with just one breath.

And you should have heard all the humming when my peeps started sucking on lollipops.

  1. There’s no form 🙁 I love See’s Candy. We have to drive to either of the big cities north or south of us to get our pound each Christmas.

    I live in Florida, but let me tell you that even us East Coasters know See’s Candies. For about 10 years now, See’s has been coming down to Florida for the holiday season and setting up shops in the malls. I worked for See’s Candies for 5 years during the holidays. Nuts and Chews 1lb box were always the first to sell out. Yes, even us Floridians enjoy See’s chocolate for breakfast Christmas morning! Yum!

    YUM! Sees Nuts & Chews are my favorite and a special holiday memory!!!! Every year my family would receive a 1lb box from our neighbor on Christmas Eve. We would enjoy it Christmas morning ONLY if there was any left.

  4. YES!!! See’s Candy = Christmas!! Since we’ve grown up and moved out, my dad has bought my siblings and I each a box for Christmas…it just wouldn’t be the same without it. Nuts and Chews for us too, but he’s had to figure out a special mix for my brother’s family as there is a nut allergy too. LOVE this!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
