DO I WANT PIE OR DO I WANT CANDY?


I love pie.  I really do.  But sometimes I'm to full from eating a big meal to enjoy a slice of pie for dessert.  Yet, I still want a little something sweet.

Today, my sister, brought home a lovely surprise for me.  It's See's pie truffles.

See's candy has got to be my all time favorite candy.  It's so creamy and each piece is still hand made.


To think I could have full pie flavor and not feel full was exciting. 

There is four different flavors in this box.  There is Apple Pie, which really does taste like you are eating apple pie only better.  It's dipped in white chocolate.  YUM!

Then there is a wonderful Cranberry Orange Pie.  There is a perfect blend of cranberries and orange and it's dipped in a dark chocolate.  I admit, I am not a big fan of dark chocolate.  Yet, this truffle screams for dark chocolate to balance out the tangy center.  A great blend between the two flavors.

Pumpkin Pie is full of spicy flavors and you can actually taste the cinnamon and all spice mixed in with the pumpkin.  This is dipped in milk chocolate.  A lovely combo.

The Pecan Pie is also mixed with the white chocolate and has a delicious Bordeaux mixed with roasted pecans and also a full pecan on top.  Oh my!


The only bad thing about these wonderful Pie Truffles is that you want to eat all of them, they are so good.

Yet, at the same time, you don't want to eat them because you want them to last as they are only sold for a limited time.

No, I didn't get paid for this review.  I'm writing it just to share with you how good these are. 

If you live near a See's candy then you know how wonderful the candy there is. 

If you don't, then you must go on line and order some to be delivered to you.  You won't be let down.

I only wish I knew about these before as I think they are about sold out for the rest of the year.  The Apple Pie truffle is sold all the time though.  Only the other three are seasonal.

I'm so lucky to have such a thoughtful and wonderful sister.  Thanks Patty for buying these for me.

Hi Joanne! Now I see why you said you would have chosen the candy bar over the painting! Looks like I am not the only one with a sweet tooth. Enjoy!
Hugs,

I really wonder to watch your pumpkins work, these pumpkins were just carved with a simple face and you decorated way is totally fun.

Oh, these sound wonderful. My daughter and I used to own a candy store and carried the best chocolates. Unfortunately, the economy got the best of us and we had to close. I've had See's chocolates and they really are good. They sell them here at the local mall. I'll have to look for them. Thanks for the review!
