A Message from See’s Candies CEO, Pat Egan

South San Francisco, Ca  September 8, 2022

With summer coming to an end and the holiday season approaching, we are excited to be part of your upcoming celebrations. From Halloween to New Year’s, and all the joyous happenings in between, you can always count on us to not only be a part of your tried and true family traditions, but to help create new ones as you spend time with family and friends.

Speaking of the joyous happenings in between, our founder Mary See’s birthday is right around the corner, and we want you to be part of this occasion as we celebrate! We wouldn’t be here 101 years later if it wasn’t for her and those delicious recipes that make the candies you love. To honor her, a special Deal of the Day will be offered from 9/10–9/17. We invite you to visit one of our shops each day, or check online, to learn more about these sweet deals.

Since 1921, when Mary and Charles See founded our American-made company, our priority has always been to make the best candy on the planet, all while honoring our motto: Quality Without Compromise. Even as supply chain issues continue to impact businesses across the globe, we’re committed to serving you—our customers—the See’s candies you know and love.

Along with supply chain issues, we are also continuing to see ingredient prices increase. While some companies might see opportunities to cut costs by using lower quality options, or offering substitutes, here at See’s we will always be dedicated to preparing our confections with only the finest and freshest ingredients. Just as we have done for 101 years.

Earlier this year, we faced a challenge with raspberries that affected a few of our special candies. The specific varietal we’ve used for decades was specifically chosen for the perfect balance of sweet and tart, color, and texture. We found out that this key ingredient was in short supply, so true to our motto we made the difficult decision to pause production earlier this year on some of your favorites. We did this because of our commitment to you and refusing to compromise on quality. I am happy to say that our supply is now back, and production is at full capacity for the Fall and Holiday season.

We also have something new! Next time you are in one of our shops or on sees.com, be sure to check out our Limited-Time Sweet: Dark Orange Truffles. This unique flavor stands out in our rich and decadent chocolate truffle lineup, offering a tangy and sweet soft orange center covered in See’s iconic dark chocolate. Our team worked hard to bring this new sweet to life, and it tastes amazing. It might be one of my new favorites!

Thank you for your continued support as loyal customers. We look forward to bringing you, and your loved ones, more joy, treats, and sweet memories for many years to come.
