My east coast family adores See’s Candy!  (Even though you can know buy it out there – it’s still a west coast thing)

My first thoughts were Ghirardelli or See’s candies but both were already mentioned. 🙂

agree on the sees!  and if you’re going to buy ghirardelli, get it at safeway or even the airport – so much cheaper 🙂

For chocolate, tcho’s or reccheuti’s (sp) are both (IMO) nicer local options that, unlike ghiradelli and Mrs See’s, you actually can’t get back east.  But if you are getting a lot, then they would be expensive.

I echo the See’s idea — you can get ghirardelli chocolate everywhere, but most east coast cities still don’t have a See’s.  And besides, they make so many delicious options!  You could customize a box for each recipient based on what they like.

It’s Its!!

Yes, I know it’s probably physically impossible, but wow, I think tons of dry ice and a few coolers might be a good investment 🙂

I’m late to the discussion, but I love taking Claire’s Squares home when I visit family. Everyone just raves about them to where I can’t visit relatives w/out a package safely tucked into my purse.
