‘Life is like a box of chocolates’ and nothing tastes more like Christmas than See’s Candies.

Our family loves this box of Assorted Chocolates. The ones with the sprinkles are Bordeaux and they are my favorite!

I do recognize the irony of writing about sugary treats whilst on a diet.

But you have to understand: This is no ordinary chocolate.

See’s Candies has always been a mecca for chocolate lovers and our family can’t do Christmas without it.

See’s was a staple in California malls while I was growing up, but the only time we ever entered the store was to buy a box or three of chocolates for the holidays (except when they offered free samples on the weekends).

Much to our chagrin, we realized See’s wasn’t a thing in Texas during our first Christmas in the Lone Star State.

But shipping saved our lives and every year we place a gigantic order to get our family fix.

My mom gets a box of the Nuts & Chews. My father-in-law likes the Assorted Chocolates. My sister-in-law has to have a Scotchmallow and I have one Bordeaux bar all to myself.

(My family knows not to even ask for a nibble because I don’t share.)

If you are looking for a special holiday treat, you should try a box.

And there isn’t a better time than now to place an order and raise money for the Stephenville Christian School.

Students are selling a limited selection of See’s Candies through Dec. 4 and the school gets a portion of the proceeds.

This cute "winter wonderland" box makes perfect stocking stuffers.

You won’t be able to access all of the company’s delights, but you can certainly get a nice selection of assorted chocolates, peppermints, lollypops, truffles, peanut brittle, walnut bars and toffee.

If you are a first-time taster, get a box of the Assorted Chocolates. You can’t go wrong.

Merry Christmas and you’re welcome!
