Mother See was with us.... Tom is so clever
Did You Know? - See's Candies is a manufacturer and distributor of candy, particularly chocolate, in the western United States. It was founded by Charles See, his wife Florence, and his mother Mary in Los Angeles, California, in 1921. The company is now headquartered in South San Francisco, California. It has kitchens at its headquarters and at a second location in Los Angeles, where there is also a retail shop. It also has an office in Carson, California.
According to the corporate website, Charles Alexander See II (1882–1949) arrived in the United States from Canada in 1921 with his wife Florence MacLean Wilson See (1885–1956), and his widowed mother Mary Wiseman See (1854–1939). Mary See had developed the recipes that became the foundation of the See's candy business while helping run her husband's hotel on Tremont Island in Ontario.
The family opened the first See's Candies shop and kitchen at 135 North Western Avenue in Los Angeles in November 1921. They leased the shop from the French Canadian pioneer of Los Angeles Amable La Mer. They had twelve shops by the mid-1920s and thirty shops during the Great Depression. In 1936 See's opened a shop in San Francisco. In 1972 the See family sold the company to Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

Tom and Caandy dance to "Candy Man"
Did You Know? - "The Candy Man" (or alternatively, "The Candy Man Can") is a song which originally appeared in the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. It was written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley specifically for the film. The lyrics do not appear in the original book by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). It was sung by Aubrey Woods, who played Bill the candy store owner in the film.
The song is best known through Sammy Davis, Jr.'s cover version, which appears on the Sammy Davis Jr. Now studio album. It hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on June 10, 1972, spending three weeks there, as well as two weeks at number one on the easy listening chart. The track featured vocals by the Mike Curb Congregation, who had earlier released their own unsuccessful version of the song. It is recognized as one of his signature songs, and "The Candy Man" came to be his moniker later in his career.
