Christmas is just around the corner and I am excited although I am a little bit homesick. Some of you might be done with shopping for gifts already but am sure there are some who still have some shopping to do. If you have love ones who have sweet tooth, here is a great gift idea that you can consider giving, the holiday box from Try the World. I was excited to receive the holiday box because I have sweet tooth here in the family who love these kinds of snacks.
I wasn't sure what to expect but completely blown away with everything in it. Inside the box is the best selection of holiday foods from around the world..
The holiday box includes chocolate truffles, pistachio cream, , yerba mate tea, extra virgin olive oil, panettone, cookies, acai dessert sauce, This box is a bigger size compared to their regular size.
I love pistachio nuts so I was excited to try this pistachio cream. This delicious spread is great for bread or you can mix it with your pastries. I even tried this with waffles and it tasted awesome. I am planning to use the rest of the cream into making our holiday cookies.
This ginger snaps is a great win for my kids. We don't get ginger snaps often but they love this kind. This is a favorite treat on one of the Sweden's holiday celebration, the St. Lucia day, which also happen to be my son's calls saint. St. Lucy is the girl who brought food to those Christians who were persecuted in Rome.
The french truffles reminds me of the dessert that I eat during Christmas season from the country where I came from. These truffles is from Canada, a great accompaniment to for ice cream. I ate a bowl of coffee-flavored ice cream the other day and incorporated this into it and man, it was delicious!
I have never tried an olive oil from Israel so I am super happy that they included this in the holiday box. I don't cook with olive oil upon reading an article that the health component of an olive oil disappears when you use it to cook in a high heat so I only use olive oil in salad or when making a vinaigrette. This extra virginim olive oil is grown, harvested, and cold pressed by a cooperative of Jewish women in NOrthern Israel.
I just recently been incorporating an acai powder to my smoothies so I was super stiked to see this acai sauce in the box. You can use this to glaze the turkey you are baking for the holiday. I love this with my waffles. IT is also great with pancakes.
I have never been to Italy yet so tasting one of their desserts is awesome. This is a sweet bread which I really liked. IT reminds me of the one kind of a bread that I used ti eat back home. My husband always say that the bread from my country is sweet, it turns oiout, where not the only one.
This cookies will bring you to the taste of Morroco. This is another one that both of my kids liked especially my daughter. It's great to eat when drinking your cup of tea and having a great conversaion with the family.
I love the shape of these cookies, so pretty and really tasty!
Aside from these yummy goodies, I also love the fact that they included some recipes on the guide booklet.
I might try to bake one of the recipes and make some cookies. I baked this almond cookies with acai sauce today, it's delicious. I will post the recipe on a separate post later.
