@TheSwissColony Andes Mint Cheese Cake & 26 Holiday Favorites (Chocolates, Candy, Meats, and Cheeses) #Review + #Giveaway! #HolidayGiftGuide

Disclaimer: I received product to facilitate a review.  Giveaway is Sponsored, and Mailed directly from the Sponsor. Giveaway is open to U.S. Residents Only. Winner is chosen at Random Via Rafflecopter, Giveaway begins 12:00AM Est 11/4, ends 12:00AM Est 11/18.  Good luck! Est Prize Product Worth $79.00.  

Winner will Receive their own Andes Mint Cheesecake, and the 26 Holiday Favorites Gift Box.  Good luck!

I like cheese cake, and I like Andes Mints.. combined.. it's out of this world to me.  Every time I literally go to the Swiss Colony online to browse I stop to drool at the Cheese cakes.  The Andes Mint Cheese cake is a good 2 lbs+, and a layer of thin chocolate over top, so it gave it that chocolate crunch when biting into. Also, there were Andes Mints pieces there too.  

The Cheese cake inside was minty with chocolate chips, I love minty!  The crumbly crust is a chocolate too. It really is rich in flavor, I ate some straight out the box and then some later after it chilling in the fridge.  Both ways I loved. My mini me is a very picky eater but he snuck into the fridge to eat some.  That's how I know it's good.  

I'm like a little kid when the delivery man comes with the classic Swiss Colony Boxes.  I know what is it just by the writing, and boxes.  It always puts me in such a great mood, and I sing a little Swiss Colony song.

Now my son does a Happy Dance for the 25 Favorite Things Gift Box.  There is no hiding how happy this Gift Box makes him.  (His happy dance he bends to the side, and sways a little. It's the cutest thing ever.)

Who needs a fancy, expensive toy when you can just buy Sy a Cheese/Meat/Cake/Chocolate Box.  There are also mustards, petit fours, mini tortes and jams in the box as well.

My overall impression? Between the meat, and the cheese, the cheesecake, the sweets.. even the sweet spicy mustard (btw I could dip anything into that, and eat it. the mustards just amazing. I wish they sold that by bigger jars!) this was a great combo to snack on, and enjoy for desert.. to me, the perfect Holiday Gift.

The Swiss Colony 82 All-Time Favorite Things Review, and Giveaway (Retail Value $129.95.)

Here are a few of my favorite things,
Life According To GreenVics 2013 Holiday Gift Guide.

The Swiss Colony 82 All-Time Favorites Food Gift Box. First I'd like to point out how fast shipping was. Came the same week it was ordered.  It's an impressive 10 lb. box full of cheeses, sausages, cookies, nuts, candies and jams.  The great thing about The Swiss Colony is that you can request a free catalog to browse at home by going [here]. 

Opening the Swiss Colony package was so much fun.  It was delivered in a red, and white box with The Swiss Colony written all over it.  My husband answered the door, and started screaming The Swiss Colony package is here!! My little one helped me open the box, and remove (pop the bubble wrap.) I was excited, and curious to how exactly 10 pounds of snacks like this were mailed.  

It was a bit overwhelming seeing all the snacks in the box.  However my son had no problem jumping right in.  He went straight for the Swiss Creme Cookie, and Old World Cookies.  They had no chance to even be photographed.  He does this thing.. where he sniffs things before he puts it to his nose.. Always.. every piece of food.. I guess if it passes his sniff test, it's good enough to eat.  He's two.. I try not to over analyze the logic behind a toddler.  I just know he ate it all on the spot, and didn't run around crazy playing with it.  

I attempted to take everything out of the box, and try to organize it.  There is so much that I had a hard time taking a photo of it all in the same frame.   I just wanted to dump it out, and roll around in it while calling it my precious.

What I really liked about this box is the fact I can make separate gifts, or I can just prepare a tray for guests.

Everything in me wanted to go straight for the sweets, but I decided to try the Summer Sausage, Cheddar Cheese, and Swiss & Ham Spread.  *Crackers not Included.  There is an abundance of meat, and cheese in this package that it's smart to buy boxes of your favorite crackers.

Let me just tell you.. it filled my snack craving! Loved the combo between the sausage, and cheeses.  The meat was moist, and cheese was smooth.  Seriously, best meat, and cheese holiday box ever.

I believe there is something in this 82 All-Time Favorites Box for everyone.  

There is also mini loafs of breads, and petite fours.  Even a Chocolate Holiday Mouse.  Oh? And, can't forget the chocolate covered butter toffee.

I send my Mom & Dad packages for the Holidays.  I know they like the snack on things too.  I know kits like these are more than just a one time use gift.  The 82 All-Time Favorites Box retails for $129.95, plus shipping & handling.  Last time I mailed something out of state, it cost me over $20.00, and I'm over the hassle of going to the post office, and worrying if my package is actually going to make it there on time, or at all.  I'd rather just find a gift box, and have it mailed to them from the company now.  Saves me time, and stress.

{ Giveaway } Go Max Food Candy Bars Review & Giveaway

Go Max Go Foods has some of the best All Natural candy bars I have ever experienced.  Not only are the names fun, but the chocolate, and ingredients were delicious.  I also liked the fact they are a cruelty free company.  Some of the bars are dairy-free & vegan, along with gluten-free.  

The Snap! bar was my favorite.  It's crispy, chocolatey, really I didn't even notice a difference.  I just know I enjoyed the bar.

Then comes Cleos Peanut Butter cups, oh, my, they are perfect.  The peanut butter itself is just smooth, and natural tasting.  I loved that the combination of the chocolate, and the peanut butter didn't overpower each other like another brand does from sweetness.   These I could taste each different layer the way good food should be.

Cleos & Snaps are both Gluten-Free.  You can find out more about the other bars by going here to Go Max Go Food.  There are alternatives to different candy bars, so maybe you can find your favorite, but a better quality of that favorite.  

I received these products for free to review.  I am always on the look out to better alternatives to share with you all.  These really are delicious, and a great treat to indulge in.

{ Giveaway } The Swiss Colony Sugar Free Holiday Tower Review & Giveaway

Whether you are diabetic, know someone that is diabetic or just someone that wishes to restrict their sugar intake The Swiss Colony has the perfect Sugar Free Holiday Tower for you! This tower retails for $39.95.

Included in the tower are:

  • Fruity Gels
  • Jelly Belly Jelly Beans
  • Cherry Cordials
  • Petit Fours
  • Salt Water Taffys

I enjoyed them all.  I couldn't even tell they were Sugar Free.  I watch my sugar intake, and I am guilty of taking Cinnamon Pills when I indulge a little too much on real sugar.  What I really like about this Holiday Tower are the cute individual boxed, and wrapped little packages.  There is something for whatever sweet treat mood I am in at the moment.  

At the very top of the tower were the Sugar Free Fruity Gels.  I thought, wow! What trickery! These taste so sweet.  

Next were the Sugar Free Cherry Cordials.  I will admit, these are my favorites out of the whole tower.  Everything tasted GREAT, but I am a big fan of Chocolate Covered cherries, and the cherry is just mouth watering along w/the sugar free chocolate.  The liquid is clear inside too.  I'm not a fan of the "white filling" on some chocolate covered cherries so I was pleased to see these had the clear!! 

Beneath the Cordials are the Individual wrapped Sugar Free Assorted Jelly Belly Jelly bean flavors! I didn't even know Jelly Belly had sugar free jelly beans! Of course these were all delicious. Love, Love, Love, LOVE Jelly Belly.  As you can tell by my posts that I am a fan of items that have an assortment of things/flavors! This isn't a "big" tower, but it is big on flavor, and assortment.

Then comes the Sugar Free Salt Water Taffy.  These were my 2nd favorite after the Cherry Cordials.  The taffy is soft, stretchy, sweet, and everything Taffy should be.  I'm a sucker for good taffy.  Sometimes I go to local sweet festivals just for the fresh made salt water taffy.

Finally, but not forgotten in the least are the Petit Fours.  They come in a cute tin.  I love these things. They are like a mix between a petite 4 layered cake. Sinfully sweet, and yet Sugar free.

The tower arrived in a Red/White The Swiss Colony box.  The packing itself was quit impressive.  All the gift boxes were arranged together already. All I did was pull the tower out the box, and it was set up for me.

The Swiss Colony has been making Gifts since 1927. Including Cheeses, spreads, specialty meats, chocolates, award-winning butter toffee, cakes, tortes, kringles, brownies, candy, cookies, Gluten Free, and Sugar Free items!

I received these samples for free to review.  One lucky follower will also win a Sugar Free Holiday Tower too! U.S. Residents Only.  Giveaway begins 12/6/2012, and ends 12/13/2012.  Winner is chosen at random via Raffle Copter. Prize Value is $39.95. Winner has 24 hours to verify winning email. If winner is not verified, prize is forfeited and another winner will be chosen at random.  It's so close to the Holidays that I want this to be fast! So check your emails after the 13th!!

{ Giveaway } Paradise Grove Avocado Review & Giveaway

Life According To GreenVics Holiday Gift Guide, Paradise Grove Avocados

If you are having trouble finding that perfect gift for your foodie loved ones you should seriously check out The above gift basket is just $39.95.

Recently I reviewed some of Paradise Grove Avocados and before I even tell you about the size of these avocados, and how earthy, and perfect they were.  I wanted to tell you how considerate customer service was, I have had nothing but a positive experience. 

These were the biggest avocados ever.  So fresh, I had to wait for them to ripen, which is Great! See how some are already darker than the others? Which is a good thing. It means I can eat the ripe ones first, and have fresh avocados.

I like to make something I call spicy shrimp slaw.  You take cabbage/carrot slaw mix, some shrimp, a lime, srirachi hot sauce, and fresh avocados.  It makes a cold salad.  

One lucky follower gets a chance to win a 6pk of Avocados from Paradise Grove too.  Don't forget to thank Paradise Grove for such a fantastic healthy, product.  You can find them on Facebook & Twitter.
