Everyone knows See’s, its one of the most-beloved candy purveyors not only in our backyard (props!), but also across the world. The famous confectioner has been churning out chocolate with a smile from South San Francisco since 1921. We should be so lucky that the white-uniformed maidens who make our mouths water are never that far away from us with shops scattered throughout the Bay Area. With rotating seasonal favorites including Pumpkin Pie truffles, See’s is a never-fail crowd pleaser for gifts (and the free samples don’t hurt, thank you very much!) ... keeping us warm, fuzzy, and sugarcoated all the time. A happy habit is right!
What to get: Milk Bordeaux (it's the best!), Scotchmallow, Dark Butterchew, Key-Lime truffle, Apple-Pie truffle, and Peanut Brittle.
