I’m a sucker for a quality gift basket! Over the years I’ve received numerous gift baskets from friends and family which, sadly, are really a waste of money. Often I have found that the containers that the baskets come in are pretty, but the items inside are not of a good quality. All flash and no substance has often been my experience.
For that reason, I when I received the Nutcracker Drum Christmas Gift Basket from Gourmet Gift Baskets. I was tremendously impressed! The basket includes a wide variety of sweet and tasty treats, including chocolate peppermint cookie brittle, peanut brittle, butter wafers, white chocolate amaretto wafers, English toffee caramels, peanut roll, and praline pecans. All of these items are tucked together in a keepsake drum that is both cute and functional.
Now pretty is great, but how did the treats taste? Well, I’m embarassed to say that they didn’t last long in our house! I absolutely LOVED the chocolate peppermint cookie brittle – it is a rich cocoa-peppermint cookie smothered in chocolate with peppermint pieces on top and it tastes divine! My second favourite item in the basket was the chocolate-covered peanut brittle – the pieces were a variety of sizes and the chocolate was fantastic! My other favourites included the peanut roll (a combination of sweet and salty with nougat and caramel rolled in peanuts) and chocolate amaretto wafers that are both light in texture and rich in flavour!
I’m beyond impressed with the Nutcracker Drum Christmas Gift Basket from Gourmet Gift Baskets. It looks good and, more importantly, tastes even better!
