See’s seasonal stores

If you live on the West Coast, See’s is no big deal. (Note redundancy of yesterday’s lede & today’s.) But branches of this Cali-spawned chocotier are rare in TX (altho Rice Epicurean in Houston has 'em). Wanna read some mktg spiel? See's Famous Old Time Candies® was founded in LA in 1921 by Charles See. The sparkling clean, B&W shop was designed to resemble his mother Mary See's home kitchen. The co. is HQ’d in SF w/ a 2nd kitchen in LA, delivering fresh chocs & candies to over 200 See's shops in the West. Anyhoo, every Xmas, we get See's seasonal stores. This year, it started 11-10 and runs thru 12-24 at these area malls: VALLEY VIEW CENTER, RIDGMAR in FW, STONEBRIAR in Frisco, NORTH EAST MALL in Hurst, THE PARKS AT ARLINGTON, and COLLIN CREEK MALL in Plano, mere minutes from NYCE

Do I know you Kathy? I don't think I really look like Mary See. I am much slimmer, because I don't eat a lot of the candy and ice cream crap TG is always writing about, nor go for those high-cal beverages at Starbucks.

I seem to be repeating myself.

Actually, Mary See looks a lot sweeter than ms.ery sounds (not that I am acquainted with either lady).

Twisted, that's very unsporting of you.

Why, I think i'll walk past a See's today and not even stop in. I'll snub it.

Le Miz looks a hell of a lot better than that fat candy broad.

Mary See looks like my departed grandmother, rest her blessed soul, a dear, sweet - oh screw that, she doesn't look like anyone I know

I grew up in Cal. When I turned 18 I worked in a See's Candy Store and worked myself up to manager's position. That was the best job I ever had that I can think of.
At one time a bunch of us visited the factory in San Francisco so until you see how candy is made don't make any judgements against See's Candies. They are the best and for Christmas I still get it every year.
