Chocolates! See's Chocolates! Dark Chocolates! I LIKE!
I'm a dark chocolate person too. Dark chocolate and nuts... does it for me each and everytime : )

but wow, they're expensive! I think more expensive than See's were in HK (if I remember correctly).
but then again, they're good : )



Actually the price per pound that I posted was incorrect. It should actually be $14.30 per pound! Still a bit expensive in my books, but well worth it! Dark's really the only thing I eat! Pure bliss!



OOOOHHHHHH...chocolates! one should never read blogs esp blogs on chocs past midnight coz that makes my tummy growl. and all i have is a cup of hot cocoa! frankly, if i were you, i'd go into See's every day...just for the freebies!



If I went everyday I probably wouldn't be able to hold myself upright from all the weight I would gain! LOL! I do manage to go a couple of times a week though... =)

ah Reid... Apricots, toasted coconut, white chocolate. ::sniker:: To bad I didn't read this when you first blogged it. I consider myself something of an expert when it comes to See's. When my daughter (now 24) was growing up, we had a "depression" ritual. We would get a 1 or 2 pound box of "Nuts & Chews". The "Depressed One" made first choice, took a bite, passed to the "Support One" who would take a bite then pass it back for final consumption. If the piece was a favorite, there was no second pass back. I've taught the same ritual to Mike and we will probably pass it to the boys in turn.

I never have to worry about "what to get" for my daughter on Christmas & birthdays because if there is no See's in the box, she just may come after me with an ax! ::laughing:: We used to get really depressed! Which reminds me... I still have some Mother's Day box to eat... ::leaves keyboard::


Hi Jo,

Love See's candies...what would I ever do without them. Seems like you feel the same way. =)


Oh, Reid...what a trip to see (nyuck, nyuck) See's again! I could never go to Kahala Mall without stopping in for dark chocolate-covered fudge (I think that's what it was) die for!

There's so much milk chocolate here and I really just don't care for it. My neighbours call dark chocolate (mostly called 'plain') "grown-up chocolate"!

Jo Rutherford

Hey! I should have read better before posting. You might not have access in Hawaii, but here there are "company" stores that offer a $2 or so per pound discount on the pre-packed assortments as well as most of the seasonal items. You or your employer (you must provide evidence of employment) have to purchase a 50 POUND minimum during the year. There are also a few other ways to be eligible for the quantity discount. They used to have their own website but last I checked they had merged with amazon. I'm not fond of amazon... =o(


Hi Moira,

Should I send you some See's chocolates as well? Do you want to indulge? =P

Hi Jo,

I don't think I eat more than a couple of pounds of See's chocolates a year. I have to watch my sugar intake, especially as I get older. =)

BTW...I'm not really a chocolate lover (but secretly, I really am!).

Jo Rutherford

::laughing:: I'm gonna get a headache trying to understand that one!


Whats to understand Jo he dislikes chocolates (hands Reid a box of dark chocolates in an unmarked box, in the basement floor of the parking garage) Whats to figure not everyone likes chocolates (puts her chocolates in a chocolate protection program (in my stomach)...) ^_^; ok im being alittle too silly!



Hi Jo,

I didn't mean it...really I didn't!

Hi milgwimper,

Yes, unmarked box. Can you make it a two-pounder? =P

Jo Rutherford

::runs to make sure her box is safe::
::looks at the lollipops and contemplates sharing::


Hi Jo,

Love the lollipops. I'm just sad that they don't make the chocolate raspberry ones anymore! =(

Jo Rutherford

whoa... Chocolate Rasberry? I had no idea! We never got them over this way! How long ago was this?


Hi Jo,

I think they discontinued them about a year and a half ago. I'm surprised they didn't have them there.

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-U40

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
