See's Dream Box

Today's my birthday. I am off on a fun adventure with my mom and girls - it does involve cupcakes - so I can't take all your calls and well-wishes personally, but they are important to me. Feel free to leave them here.

About a week ago, as I was polishing off the box of See's dark chocolate assortment I got from the preschool Christmas fundraiser, I realized that what I really need is a custom box. I like almost all chocolates in a box (except cordials and fruity nougat and the occasional unidentifiable filling), but definitely some more than others. Unfortunately See's does not make the Disco Mom Assortment for general distribution. Luckily, they do make custom boxes, available in stores and online.

So with my birthday today, and Valentine's Day fast approaching, I created my dream box - for your reference, for my reference, for ED'S REFERENCE. If you ever want to get me something, but just not sure what, this is a good place to start.

You can only pick 10 kinds, and I would like them in pretty even amounts (maybe 1 or 2 more of the Bordeaux's and Orange Creams than others.) After drooling on the keyboard as you scroll down, click the link to see all the options.

#4 Dark Vanilla Cream
#7 Almond Square

#9 Dark Bordeaux (wow, yum)

#26 Scotchmallow

#36 Orange Cream

#37 Strawberry Cream

#34 Caramel with Almonds
#74 Peanut Butter Patties

#75 Dark California Brittle

And one of the following:
#10 Pecan Buds

#38 Raspberry Cream

Nice, right? Obviously everyone's perfect mix will be different. If you are so inclined, go to See's and tell us all which 10 are in your dream box?

Happy Birthday Sis!

It's a good thing I was already eating something when I read this post. Mmm!

happy birthday man! sounds like you have a great plan for fun.

yesterday roger said something - with complete bewilderment - like: you care about valentine's day?

we've only known each over for about 11 years now. it's easy to see how that might slip his attention . . .

Happy birthday, Kari!

Maren said...

kat: ha ha! That's such a good line.

Kari: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR KAAA-RRIIIII! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! (I sound pretty good online....) Sorry I had to miss the cupcake fun. I hope to hear a full report.

Happy Birthday Kari! I am a big fan of chocolate in general, but don't go for box chocolates at all. Occasionally I'll eat a nut/caramel one, but otherwise boxes of chocolates go uneaten for me. But it is good to donate that I can always donate them to a good cause, YOU!

Happy birthday :) hope you have a great one! Dark bordeaux, assorted molasses chips, and scotchmallow are my favorites :)

Marna said...

Happy Birthday! Bordeaux and butterscitch sqaures are my FAVORITE, scotch kisses are good too. Not to mention the bordeaux fudge... I stole the whole block at Christmas and wouldn't share with my kids!
Have a super day!

Happy Birthday Kari!

Thank you for the smile and happiness that I get each time I read about you and your family, your adventures, and baking. I am so grateful to be related to such a fun person, and good cook!

I hope that your celebration is filled with chocolate, laughs, and whatever your heart desires.

Happy Birthday Kari!! Tell Aaron to make you some crepes!

I'm impressed you can differentiate See's candies. As soon as I start eating them my brain enters such a sugar induced ecstasy I'm incapable of typing out the varieties.

I love that feature of sees! I am always bemoaning my inability to get apricot delights (my absolute favorite) back here. Two anniversaries ago, Chris picked up on this, and ordered a box entirely composed of apricot delights. Oh, the wonder!
