See's still have their Easter eggs - and yes, you can easily decay all of your teeth from them. :)
The stores are still exactly as they've always been, and they are so generous with samples! I've gone in to buy 1 piece of candy (quick sugar rush while shopping in a mall) and they've given samples to not only me, but my kids as well. Best thing is, when they have a sample for the day that I don't care for, they say, "well, which sample would you like today?"
(That's when the angels sing!...~aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh~)

I also like their ginger candy

I rarely eat candy but love Hersheys Kisses with Almonds. My all time favorite was the Oh Henry :!: However I have not seen any any a long time.

Nielsens Burnt Almond Dark Chocolate Bar. While Nielsens is sold here in USA, this particular bar was not, only Canada. THe parents of a friend of mine (parents deceased now) used to send them to me, but not for 15 years and they still are not avilable in the USA. Nothing else compares. The USA chocolate has too much waxy stuff in it. Would love to find something similar. I now get a gooey dark semi-sweet carmely and nutty thing from Starbucks. Decatant.

Norgeskog's post reminded me of the candy I like the best, and I don't like candy all that much:

the candy the grade school/high school band kids sell during their fundraisers. Basically chocolate bars, and sometimes just bigger versions of the standard fare - but for some reason they taste better when you get 'em from a band kid.

Husband says "Three Musketeers". I love Godiva truffles, any European chocolate (grew up partially in Germany and the chocolate is better there), and peanut brittle.

Wasn't that made by See's. I remember buying it a few times to help the neighbor kids.
