New "Awesome" bar at See's

See's Candies on Market at Sansome (and perhaps other locations of See's?) is giving out its new Awesome bar as the sample of the day. I'm not sure how long this lasts, but it's a great deal. The bars are $1, so if you buy a 40 cent chocolate you get a FREE $1 sample.

And it's a darn good bar. "Awesome Nut & Chew Bar: chewy nougat with almonds and honey covered with dark chocolate," is what it says on the wrapper. The nougat isn't that tough-to-chew kind, but rather nicely soft and chewy. Almond bits are fresh and crunchy - not soggy and stale. Quite definitely awesome, and even worth a dollar, I think.

    Have to say I read that as See's opening a bar....for drinks.
    I will try that candy since any excuse to stop by there is good for me!

      Hilarious! I wish See's would open a bar. Those would be my kind of libations... And served by those ladies in the white costumes! I love that image.

        I bet they'd make a great chocolate martini!

      Thanks for the tip: Hubby and I walked to See's on Lakeshore Rd. in Oakland and each got a bar, so they're being distributed there. :-)
