Gourmet Gift Baskets Review&Giveaway! - Ends 9/12

Gourmet Gift Baskets is an amazing website with something for every occasion. The business was started in 1940 and has only grown since! They have everything from Beer Baskets to Flowers! No matter what you're looking for, they will have it. You can find baskets for corporate events and even same day delivery for those last minute ideas.

I received the Snack Gift Basket Classic without the Peanuts and Coconut Bar. It includes Gourmet Dipping Pretzels, Raspberry Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce, Key Lime White Chocolate Cookies, Almond Pecan-Dy Crunch, Buttered Peanut Crunch, Metropolitan Mix, A Peanut Roll, Honey Cheddar 5 o'clock Chex Mix, and Cheese Biscuits.

It came is this adorable basket with a bow tied neatly on top and it was completely wrapped in plastic for safe keeping! As soon as I unwrapped it, I started sampling the goodies and quickly deciding which ones were my new favorite snacks. Right off the bat, I loved the Buttered Peanut Crunch. It tastes like old-fashioned peanut brittle, very sweet and crunch, but with the saltiness of the peanuts.

The Dipping Pretzels with the Dipping Sauce were really interesting. I was really intimidated by the sauce at first, I really didn't know what to expect. After the first bite, I was pretty surprised that it was actually really good. It had a tangy, yet sweet taste and it mixed with the salty pretzels to create a unique taste experience.

My fiance, Brent, stole the Buttered Peanut Crunch from me and I had to take it back from him to try it! We both fell in love with it. The taste reminded us of the Caramel Crunch Popcorn they sell in tins at Christmas time. It didn't last very long in my house at all. ;)

The Key Lime White Chocolate Cookies were far from what I expected. I must admit, I'm not a huge fan of Key Lime so I was a little scared at first. But I sucked it up and tried them, and they were amazing! You get a very slight hint of the Key Lime tart with the crumblyness of the cookie and the sweetness of the white chocolate. It was an interesting mix of flavors, but it was awesome!

One of my other favorites in the bunch was the Peanut Roll. I'm pretty picky, and I'm not a huge fan of peanuts either. Every now and then I'll get on a kick and eat some, but it has to be with something sweet. This Peanut Roll was perfect. The salted peanuts covered the creamy sweet nougat center. It was really chewy and you had to be careful of your teeth, but it was so worth it.

One of the other more intimidating snacks is the Metropolitan Mix. This trail mix has peanuts and dried fruits all jumbled in together. I don't know how many teenagers would look at dried fruit and think "yummy!', but I figured it was worth a shot! It wasn't actually all that bad. The fruit still had a light sweetness to it and it makes a wonderfully healthy snack!

The Honey Cheddar 5 o'clock Chex Mix and the Cheese Biscuits were my least favorite in the bunch. I don't like cheese, but for anyone who does, these would be awesome. The chex mix almost tasted like Cheese-Its in trail mix form, and they weren't bad, just not my favorite flavor. The Cheese Biscuits were different. Anyone who likes cheese and cheese-flavored snacks would absolutely love these!

I really enjoyed working with Gourmet Gift Baskets. I got to try some things I never would have under my own power, and I've now been introduced into their unique shopping experience! I know where I'm getting my party favors next time I have one. Gourmet Gift Baskets has amazing baskets and their selection will never disappoint!
