One of the coolest things I have ever received was a subscription to Foodzie.com. You can order monthly food sampling boxes or one of their special selections featuring local artisan food purveyors across the country. I got my first try at this last Valentine's Day from Mr. J. For a few months we got a box in the mail with 5 or 6 samples of food ranging from sweets to savory and everything in between. I think Mr. J liked it just as much as I did. This year one of the things on our Christmas list was another subscriptions. Lucky for
Clarine's Florentines - Berkeley, CA
Handmade European style cookies - a delicate layer of well-caramelized almonds slathered with bittersweet chocolate.
Blueberry Acai Gummies
Bissinger's - St. Louis, MO
Sweet and tangy superfood combo of blueberry and acai. I don't even like gummies but I found myself popping these non-stop. Good thing the samples are instant portion control.
Old Fashioned Butterscotch Candy
Zeke's Candy - Cedarville, CA
This mouth coating buttery richness lingers on the palate long after the candy has dissolved.
p.o.p candy - Sana Monica, CA
A blend of roasted nuts that are then folded into a caramelized mix of sweet butter, cane sugar, and brown rice syrup.
Chocolate Sun Cups
Seth Ellis Chocolatier - Boulder, CO
Sunflower butter makes a great substitute for peanut butter. Yum!
"Put Your Money On Honey" Caramels
Droga Confections - San Francisco, CA
Infused with a spoonful of California wildflower honey, dark Guittard chocolate and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt, these vibrant caramels offer a whole new flavor experience.
Even though every dentist is probably cringing at all of the sugar consumed by us from these samples, we are smilingly happily. And we still have our teeth. It was the first one and already we are excited for the next. Thanks Neal and Beth!
