As part of its year-long Centennial celebration, See's Candies has launched its July Sweet-of-the-Month: Lemon Drops.
Delivered in a glass jar perfect for gifting, See’s Candies’ Lemon Drops are sweet with a refreshing tart twist.
"Sweet, just the right amount of tart, and the perfect summer treat,” said See’s President and CEO Pat Egan. “We can't wait for our customers to try these delicious candies that are packed with flavor.”
Lemon Drops are now available for $9.50 while supplies last in shops and online.
In honor of National Lollypop Day on July 20, See's Candies will also continue its tradition of offering a free Lollypop in shops for all customers. The company will also offer 20 percent off all Lollypops and Little Pops July 9-24.
See's Candies Lollypops – yes, spelled with a y rather than an i – are long-lasting and can be recognized by their classic square shape and gold foil wrapper. They are rich and full of flavor. Each Lollypop stick is stamped with the signature See's Candies logo.
See's Lollypops have been a fan-favorite for years. Because of the high demand of the product, in 1997, the company opened a kitchen at Rollins Road in Burlingame, California, dedicated to making Lollypops and Little Pops. From classic Butterscotch to seasonal Root Beer and Cinnamon, all of See's Lollypop flavors are still produced in this unique candy kitchen.
"There's nothing quite like walking into our Lollypop factory and smelling the sweet aroma of butter, cream and sugar,” Egan said. “Watching our Lollypops being produced from start to finish is just as fascinating with each visit.”
See’s is hosting its annual Lollypop Sweet-stakes, which offers fans the chance to win a year's worth of Lollypops. Fans can enter the Lollypop Sweet-stakes from July 3-24. Plus, 15 lucky contestants will win $50 See's gift cards. For more information and to enter to win, visit sees.com/LollypopDay.
As of July 1, all See's shops will go back to unwrapped samples for their guests.
"I know our customers will be thrilled to have the unwrapped samples back,” Egan said. “Our shop experience is an iconic part of our brand, and our customers look forward to getting a sweet taste of See's with every visit.”
Giving samples has been a cornerstone of See's customer experience, and when the pandemic hit, the company had to shift gears. Given the importance of this tradition, See’s quickly pivoted to produce millions of individually-wrapped samples to ensure customers never left empty-handed.
