More fun than the episode of I Love Lucy set on the candy line and with stories richer than a Dark Chocolate Truffle, See's Famous Old Time Candies is a golden ticket to the candy factory (and, yes, See's did inspire that Lucy episode). Author Margaret Moos Pick chronicles See's history, from its humble beginning in Mary See's kitchen back in the 1890s to its place of reverence in the hearts of the sweet-toothed everywhere. Learn how See's candy experts hold chocolate tastings, treating batches like fine wines, to choose the very best; how bonbons are still meticulously hand-dipped to perfection; and how those at See's simmered, stirred, cooked, and tasted 250 recipesall to create the perfect truffle. For See's fans and proud candy lovers, here's a story with a very sweet center.
