Food Reviews on Foodzie
Palettes are a funny thing. One person says delicious and the other person says yuck. Once again, Foodzie, has asked me to review a few new items on their site. I love doing this and it is really fun to get everyone's reaction. FYI, the site is continuing to grow with new products.
First off, Basil Oil. My bad, we were leaving on vacation right as we got our first tasting and I spaced on the basil oil. Got around to having it. Absolutely fantastic. Delicious tasty olive oil with just a hint of basil on the back end. Great for dipping and even cooking with. A huge hit. Loved it. I wish it came in a larger bottle.
This month, we have four in the queue. We got to 3 of them, holding off on the pancake mix for the appropriate morning.
First off, Effies Oatcakes. These are sublime. Think Girl Scout sugar cookie meets oats, salt and depth. You can taste the sugar but the salt on the back end changes the entire cracker. Good for coffee, cheese or just a snack. A total winner.
My Husband Nuts…hilarious name. I take a huge pass on this one. Smoked almonds that made me feel as if I was sitting in a barbecue pit eating the almonds. On the other hand, Fred loved them and so did our friend. Reminded him of the Blue Diamond smoked almonds we all ate growing up ( at least we did). Thumbs down for me, but thumbs up for Fred.
Devil in an Apron makes hand made caramels. We tasted a few. Good, gooey and tasty. But, in our neck of the woods, we find caramels like this in a variety of small specialty stores that are just as tasty. I am neutral on the caramels. Good not great but not great enough to order and keep in the house.
Wrap up, more Basil oil and a huge case of Effies Oatcakes.
