To help mark its Centennial year, See's Candies has joined forces with Peet's Coffee and Guittard Chocolate Company to create its April Sweet-of-the-Month: Chocolate Coffee Beans.

Created by three iconic California companies, these single-origin coffee beans from Brazil are roasted to perfection by Peet's, then generously coated in See's signature dark chocolate supplied by Guittard. Full of rich, flavorful crunch, these pair with See's other java-inspired goodies, like Café Latté Lollypops, Café Latté Krispys and the Coffee Lovers box.

"As part of our Centennial year, we are releasing a new piece each month,” said Pat Egan, president and CEO of See’s Candies. “When we decided to make chocolate-covered coffee beans, I couldn't think of better partners than our friends at Peet's and Guittard. All three of us have deep roots in the Bay Area and share traditions of creating premium products and taking care of customers. So, developing this together with other California icons that also have a great company culture was a real treat.”

The first of its kind collaboration between the local companies takes place as See's Candies commemorates 100 years of business and a 75-year-old relationship with Guittard Chocolate.

"Our partnership is grounded in a common goal: a commitment to quality and craft of both chocolate and candy,” said Gary Guittard, president of Guittard Chocolate. “We're thrilled to work with Peet's Coffee, another long-lasting and innovative Bay Area company, on this product collaboration that highlights our collective dedication to coffee, chocolate and confection.”

"We are excited to share a special partnership with See's Candies and Guittard Chocolate Company that celebrates our common heritage in the Bay Area," added Shawn Conway, CEO of Peet's Coffee.

See's Candies Chocolate Coffee Beans are available now for $5 in See’s stores and online, while supplies last.
