Sees is far and above the BEST, beats out Godiva, Ghirardelli, Dove, you name it... gimme Sees or gimme.... well, if its chocolate (none of that white-chocolate non-chocolate nonsense please!) I'll eat it, but Please Sees!!

Jeni... they just need to cover those pretzels with real chocolate that's all! :D :D :)

I don't eat chocolate any more, so white chocolate is my perfect excuse! :)

Ok, I have relapsed a few times, but always go back to avoiding it, as it have no control.

These pretzels are pretty darn good, despite one bad review:

https://www.amazon.c...overed pretzels

Btw...way less expensive when purchased locally.

Not yet, Nancy ... now its on my list :)  .
 
Costco sells discount See's gift cards.... gotta love'em!!  :)
 
Jeni... tell Neimans to cover those snowflakes with chocolate-choclate (preferably imported from See's), and call it "urban snow"  :D :D :D  
 
edit:  Oh yeah, Nancy... I looked it up,  it's usually in one of my several gift boxes and I do love it!!


Is See's a west coast thing? I know I've had it, but if feel like it was only when I was out west.

Last 2 days have been a heartburn nightmare for me.. No digesting chocolate too well lately.   I get Chocogurgitations   :blink:  
 
Just looked up 
"Chocolate is moderately [/size]acidic, not extremely or slightly [/size]acidic. If you eat too much [/size]chocolate you will loose the pH balance causing your body to go into a never ending [/size]acidic cycle "[/size]
 
I guess I am just having too much...   :o


Wouldn't have guessed this!

It used to be Jeni but now they have a website so anyone can order it. I used to send it to my mom every year in Florida, she loves the nuts and chews :)

Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

We say here that it is better to be a nonsmoker with the occasional desire to smoke than a smoker with the constant desire to quit. Marciem
Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

I just got my (rather subdued) order of two tins....

This is going to take a ton of discipline to eat a few at a time.

I hope someone out there decided to try these! :)

At this point in the Holidays, my indulgence would be a chili cheese dog.   Doesn't that sound great after all the sweets and fancy food?

Boxing Day is my Christmas Indulgence.... I eat all my chocolates (usually Lindt Balls) curled up on the couch reading whatever book I got for Christmas and watching the day 1 of the Cricket. BEST DAY OF THE YEAR (the kid does family stuff with her dad all day).
