See’s Candies celebrates the grand opening of its Folsom location today and the Sacramento Bloggers got a sneak peek last night during a promotional event that included chocolate tastings, See’s company history and a chocolate box packing contest, I Love Lucy-style.
Here are some of the interesting factoids we learned while trying not to inhale too much chocolate:
Did you know that See’s Candies gives away over a million pounds of chocolate in free samples every year?
Last year they sold over 26 million pounds of candy.
And did you also know that Mary See would be 159 years old this September 15th?
And did you also know that the famous chocolate conveyor belt episode of I Love Lucy was filmed with See’s candy at their La Cienega kitchen location?
See’s hand-packs its candy and there are no added preservatives, so you know you’re getting a fresh box every time!
If you visit their Folsom location today, you’ll get to see their Model A Roadster, so what are you waiting for??
