See’s Candies Store Opening at Southdale Mall

 

 

SeesCollage1

There are two things that will make me go anywhere after a full 10 hour day of work – FREE and CHOCOLATE! And this is exactly what happened last Thursday at the See’s Candies Store opening at Southdale Mall. It was a Minnesota blogger event, so I got to see some of the old faces and meet some new bloggers as well, and of course Sam was my plus one 😉

It was candy galore, I mean all sorts and kinds, and as it was mentioned later that night, one candy is a meal indeed!

See’s Candies was founded in 1921, and has been sticking to the 1920’s design ever since, from the black and white marble floor to the staff outfits!

An interesting fact about See’s one of the episodes of I Love Lucy was filmed there, check it out:

So we all got a chance to recreate our very own I love Lucy episode and pack a box of candy! Remember when Forrest Gump said – Life is like a box of chocolate? You never know what you get inside? Well I knew exactly what was going into that box! I didn’t know what was inside the chocolates, but that’s secondary 😉 And not to brag or anything, I was able to put 13 pieces of candy inside the box instead of 12!

And then to my surprise Sam goes for the hair net to pack his own box of candy!

A couple more interesting facts:

– See’s candies offers free samples all day every day!

– See’s candies also holds the Guinness World Record for the Largest Lollipop!

“The largest lollipop was 3176.5 kg (7,003 lb), and was created by See’s Candies (USA) at See’s Candies Lollypop Factory in Burlingame, California, USA, on 18 July 2012.

The lollipop was chocolate-flavored and had the following measurements: 4 feet 8.75 inches in length, 3 feet 6 inches in width, and 5 feet 11 inches in height. The lollipop also included a stick which was 11 feet 10 inches tall, though the weight of the stick did not count towards the record.”

And a few more photos to make your Monday sweeter!

What to Do When You are Having a Shitty Day?

1. Yell at someone or something (preferably something)!

2. Put on some make-up and nice clothes, go out, look like a million bucks – In Your Face, suckers!

3. Listen to some music, preferably on loud, now the neighbors won’t turn on their TV at 7 am!

4. Throw something away! Always works for me! Especially when that something belonged to my grandfather (He is the reason why I am having a shitty day! He can go stick his KGB past way up his ass!)

5. Watch Season 5 of Sex and the City, the least heartbreaking and emotional of all!

6. Eat some chocolate! Chocolate is a good mood enhancer. Maybe it will even make you hyper enough to do #4!

7. Know your worth! If you are having a shitty day because you screwed up yourself, sorry, no can do, can’t help you. But if you are blameless, and it’s not your fault, remember, that what you did is for the good of humanity, or your personal good (you are a human too!). Always stand up for yourself! And act classy! Remember there is always Cyanide! Cyanide and Happiness, I mean : )
