This is not only a great gift, it is a nice thing to give yourself. Foodzie has a tasting box. Each month the box is filled with some best sellers, interesting snacks and new treats. It is fun to open the box and try a few new goodies. Some are so good that it makes you want to order a bigger bag for your pantry and others are just not your thing. Here is what was in Novembers box.
Alfajores Cookie from Maitelates in Ann Harbor, MI Dulce de leche spread between two shortbread cookies and then dipped in dark chocolate. Great packaging. Didn't love the cookie but it is a best seller at Foodzie.
Heirloom Cranberry Beans from Zursun Beans in Twin Falls, ID. I have yet to use them but will for a soup soon. They are beautifully packaged.
Bacon Peanut Brittles from The Redhead in NYC. Crunchy peanuts tossed with maple syrup, cayenne, thyme and chunks of salty smoky bacon. I was seriously questioning these. We opened them up and they were gone in seconds. Wow.
Parmesan Flatbreads from Little Ragghi's in Ocean City, MD. These were excellent. A big bag might be necessary for our pantry.
Fleur de Sel Caramel Popcorn from 479 Popcorn in San Francisco, CA. This is a organic heirloom popcorn coated with an organic caramel and fleur de sel. I didn't love this either. I love caramel corn too. Just too light and with a funny after taste.
It is fun for everyone to go through the box and taste the goodies. Now I have to go back and order the faves.
