846 Market Street
in neighboring South San Francisco, See's Famous Old Time Candies
have been a staple in the west since 1921. With pristine black and white
shops, hand packed candies, and famously friendly staff, See's 200 stores
continue a tradition of old-fashioned service. The best ingredients from
all over the world go into over 100 varieties of candies. Mister SF favors
the chocolate walnut fudge. A perennial favorite of See's customers is
the Milk Chocolate Bordeaux, in addition to the same traditional assortment
the stores have packed for more than 75 years. In 2001, in a marketing
deal with Mattel, See's introduced "I Left my Heart
in San Francisco" Barbie. Barbie rode a cable car, crossed the Golden
Gate Bridge, and shopped at Union Square, but her favorite stop was See's.
"I can hardly wait to fill my shopping bag and share their wonderful chocolate
with all my friends," reports Barbie. No word yet on SOMA Barbie, who might
want to lick the chocolate off Ken's pecs.
