Do YOU know multiple languages? If so, which?

See's Candies

See's is one of our favorite chocolate brands. The first store opened in 1921 in Los Angeles, and has been going strong ever since. Thank goodness too as I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't get any Scotchmallows!

Which brand of chocolate is YOUR favorite?
