See’s Candies was founded on the American dream when mother and son duo, Mary and Charles See, moved from Canada to sunny California. It was then that Charles decided to start his own candy company, selling sweets made from his mother's recipes.

They settled in Pasadena, CA in a post-Victorian style home and Mary began making candy in the bungalow's black-and-white kitchen. When Charles opened the first See's Candies shop in Los Angeles, he chose the now-iconic checkerboard theme inspired by this very kitchen.

For over a century, Mary See has remained an inspiration for the brand. In fact, many See’s confections are still made with love using Mary’s original recipes, including Peanut Brittle, Victoria Toffee, and Chocolate Walnut Fudge. They simply can’t be improved upon and are deeply loved by customers.

Here’s how fans can join in on the festivities as the candy company celebrates Mary See’s 168th birthday:

  • September 10 through 17: Brand fans should be on the lookout for special pricing on See’s classic favorites.
  • Candy lovers will be able to enjoy the Deal of the Day after it’s announced each morning on See’s social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and on See’s website.
  • While supplies last in shops and online, purchase the limited-time only See’s Birthday Bundle, which includes:
    • Birthday Wishes Peanut Brittle
    • Birthday Cake
    • Butterscotch Lollypop

“Mary See’s motto, Quality Without Compromise, continues to guide the company and we are proud to uphold her high standards across all areas of our business” said Pat Egan, President & CEO.
