Candy girl gives away CANDY!!!

Back in December I had the opportunity to review a nice Christmas basket from Gourmet Gift Baskets. The company sent me another gift basket just last week which included some American goodies, and I say American goodies since it comes from New Hampshire and I haven’t seen a few items before. A few things are packaged different too in the States than in Canada.

I was a bit surprised at the presentation of the gift basket that I received this time. When I opened the box it was shipped in, it looked like this.

But then again it’s shown online that it just comes in the box so it’s not like it was a surprise. I just forgot, so my bad on that part.

All kinds of goodies to choose from. My boyfriend and I joked that it basically it looks like I ransacked the convenience store. I sure do love my sugar fixes. I have many nick names given to me by friends, and one of them being Candy Girl. Ha!

If I were to choose a gift basket to mail off to a loved one, I’d definitely pick one that was pre-made with a gift basket as I found the presentation of the last one I received much more put together.

What’s inside? Copied and pasted from the site:

  5. There probably wasn’t a Cinnabon in it because for a little while there was a recall on their product for a manufacturers defect. Famous Amos cookies are the greatest thing in the world! I got addicted to them when I lived in the states for a short time.
