If you ever run across them try it, they just kinda melt in your mouth. They are wonderful!

Wasn't that made by See's. I remember buying it a few times to help the neighbor kids.
I'm pretty sure our fund-raiser candy bars (in CA) were made by See's. The ones sold here are made by America's Finest Chocolate (I think part of Reader's Digest). Not as good as See's, but still good.

I feel so guilty! Every time I'm at the grocery store I see many See's Fundraiser Bars, as they sell them at the register for Breast Cancer Research. I just pass 'em by - - maybe I should have one for y'all :)

Yes, I buy them by the bag instead of by the piece!

Tie between marzipan and halvah. I make my own marzipan. Joyva band halvah seems best to me. I never tried making halvah. It looks too difficult.
