See’s September Chocolate Celebrates Founder’s Birthday

San Francisco — To honor its founder, Mary See, during her birthday month, See’s Candies has launched a celebratory flavor — Birthday Cake. The product features golden vanilla buttercream covered in white chocolate and topped with rainbow candy sprinkles.

“There would be no See’s Candies without Mary See, so it only seemed right that our September Sweet-of-the-Month honors her legacy. Of course, the new piece is made with only the finest and freshest ingredients, just as Mary would’ve ensured,” says Pat Egan, president & CEO.

Each 4.5-ounce box holds six pieces and is available for $9.50 while supplies last in the company’s shops and online.

In addition to the launch of the Birthday Cake piece, the company is also offering a Deal of the Day promotion from September 10 through 18 to celebrate its founder.

“Birthdays are always a cause for celebration . . . and Mary’s birthday in our Centennial year makes September very special,” says Egan. “The birthday cake piece is so tremendously good, and I can’t wait for our customers to try them. The piece demonstrates the artisanship of our candy makers who still make our favorites every day and who are now adding truly great pieces to our mix. Staying true to our motto of Quality Without Compromise when introducing new pieces shows that See’s has a great future ahead.”

Mary adopted the motto, Quality Without Compromise, during See’s formative years, according to the company.

“Mary is far more than just the iconic face on a box of See’s Candies. She is the inspiration behind the way we outfit our shops, craft our candies and run our business,” says Egan.
