What better way to show someone you love them than by sending them the gift of food for Christmas? I’ve met some amazing small dessert business owners over the last year and a half and I’m going to share my picks for the best holiday food gift buys. So, don’t delay. Order your gifts today and help support small business!
I am a huge fan of Chay J’s. My favorite item from Chay’s menu is the creole pretzels. They are sweet and salty and are some of the best pretzels I’ve ever tasted! Chay J’s is also offering really cool holiday tins that have a mix of their famous creole pretzels and their yummy creole crunch popcorn and their cheesy big easy popcorn. Yum!
If you love homemade Biscotti, you will love the biscotti from Fine Ingredients. It’s some of the best biscotti I have ever tasted. My favorite was the pistachio orange biscotti. Loved it! Other flavors include hazelnut, almond and cranberry walnut. Great gift for the coffee lover who enjoys great biscotti with their coffee.
I was fortunate to have tried these fluffy clouds of happiness this year after an exchange over Twitter. When the marshmallows arrived at my doorstep I could smell the aroma before I opened the package. It was at that moment I knew I was in for a treat. Wait? What did I just write? Wow, I’m being super dramatic, but it’s true. These marshmallows are da bomb!! The flavors I tried were the Sweet Potato Ginger, Praline Pecan and Elephant Ear. 240 Sweet offers over 70 gourmet marshmallow flavors so I’m sure you can find the perfect flavor for your family and friends.
I love a nice refreshing tea and Just Add Honey offers a really great assortment of teas that would be perfect for the tea aficionado in your life. My favorites are the berry tea and the georgia peach tea. Delicious!
This is my favorite mini poundcake company! Their cakes are delicious and the owners pay special attention to detail. Their offerings include a mini red velvet poundcake that arrives at your door with cream cheese icing for spreading and pecans (make sure you ask for the icing and pecans when you order). Other flavor offerings include carrot, southern sweet potato peanut butter cookie and raspberry. Wow! Don’t envy you for the decision you will have to make when ordering these cute mini cakes!
I have been a fan of Vermont Brownie Company for several years now. They made my very first Christmas food gift list and I couldn’t leave them off the list this year. Why? Because their brownies are awesome! This year they upped the ante by adding blondies to their menu. I am a huge fan of blondies so I was ecstatic when the new menu item was introduced. A seasonal favorite is also their mint chocolate brownie. And, to make it even easier for those of us trying to watch our weight this holiday season, VT Brownie now sells a brownie 3 pack. Love!
Timing is everything. I just met the owners of this company over the weekend and I fell in love with their mocktail teas. I walked away with the Mimosa based tea. I was almost on my way, but then their jalapeno honey caught my attention. The honey is a perfect combination of sweet and spicy. I can’t wait to try their honey with salmon soon.
