I have tried two of these products before in a different box so I am kind of familiar how they are, the tea and the ginger snaps. However, the rest are all pretty new to me.
I am planning to bake this Pain d'epices or spiced bread baking mix. It is from a small french company, Marlette. This is a traditional French holiday cake that's made with freshly milled, organic flour and a variety of baking spices. Oh I can't wait to try baking a french bread/cake.
I am not sure with this Truffle sauce but I am sure willing to try it. It says that you can mix this into dips or spread it into crostini or even fold it into omelettes. I might try it with omelettes this weekend.
My daughter already tried this date spread and she said it's really good. She is the type of person that sticks to what she knows and like when it comes to food but that doesn't mean she is not willing to try other foods. Yesterday, she made a toast and spread this date to it and then she gave it a thumbs up.
These mini pineapple cakes are really good, one of my favorites in the holiday box. The mini cakes are buttery and filled with sweet and tangy jam. Pineapple cake is an ubiquitous pastry in Taiwan.
|"In Taiwanese, pineapple is called and pronounced as Onglai, which is similar to the phrase for "the arrival and prosperity and fortune." This hidden meaning makes it a popular gift during Lunar year."|
Here's my daughter who got attracted right away with the packaging. We all love fresh pineapple here at home so she was curious how it tastes like. She loved it!
These classic shortbread biscuits from Sprucewood Handmade Cookie Co from Canada are good too. It's rich and buttery, perfect for dipping in coffee or you can top an ice cream sundae with it. It would also make a cute cookie cookie sandwich.
My avid taster daughter tried this one as she was curious about toffee. She said, it is more salty than sweet lol. I tried it and I think it is delicious, rich, and creamy. It is made of pure butter from Darling, a south African town known for its excellent butter. You can melt and drizzle this over an ice cream or enjoy it as a midnight snack.
I had these ginger snaps before. They are good with tea or coffee. You can enjoy this ginger snaps from Sweden with mulled wine or dip it into a hot cider, or if you want to be an adventurer in baking, you can crumble this in pie crust.
I have tried this mind-awakening Yerba Mate holiday energy teatonics before and thought it's pretty good. It's really good in the morning, it would jump start your day. It is great with honey and lemon or you can serve chilled with ice. This is great especially during winter times. I wake up at 4:30 on weekdays with my husband and sometimes, I feel so sleepy, this teatonic is my go-to to fully wake me up.
This box comes with an entertaining holiday stories and it also includes recipes. So if you want a unique gifts for food lovers this Christmas, this is a perfect option. You can enjoy a 15% off gift with promo code DEC15.
I ordered an Italy box, I am giving it to an Italian friend for Christmas. I tried this box before and love what's in it. Hopefully she would love it too.
