Europe In A Box -March

Europe In A Box -March

Oh I do love receiving surprise presents in the mail!!

I especially like to receive gifts of exotic foods.  I have a confession, I did actually signed up for “Europe in a Box” so technically it wasn’t a surprise, or a gift but the feeling of anticipation was fantastic.  I had no idea what European treats would be contained in this package.

When I opened my pressy it was so gorgeously presented I had to take a picture straight away to show you.  It is the little things that make an experience special.

The first product I noticed was the Blanxart Drinking chocolate.  As soon as I opened the gift wrapping the aroma of decadent rich chocolate was intoxicating.  The chocolate is from Barcelona in Spain and was first produced in 1954 by a famous chocolatier.

I continued to breathe in the delicious chocolate aroma as I set up the contents of my package for a mini photo shoot.  One by one I examined the contents.  I was debating whether I was in a sweet or savoury mood but the “Galettes Caramel au Beurre Sale” from Le Cordon Bleu in France won me over.  As soon as the picture taken I tore open the box of cookkies.  I simply cannot describe the eating pleasure.  I love shortbread and these were super thin, crisp and butter with a delicious salted caramel flavour.  I would have gotten away with eating them all but Mr GG walked into the room… strictly out of obligation I offered him a taste. Unfortunately from the first bite he too was hooked and I had to share the rest.  I will definitely keep my eye out for these, they were delicious!

My appetite was ready for more treats so Mr GG and I opened the Roka Gouda Cheese bites from the Netherlands.  These were made using 20% Gouda cheese which you could really taste! I loved the recommendation to try them with a Sparkling wine, I’m sure it would be the perfect combination of flavours.

There was a sparkling wine from Germany’s Henkell & Co also included in the “Europe In A Box” but as I was writing this review the wine was being chilled ready for later.

I also munched my way through the Greek Ouzo lollies and a strawberry flavoured loll, YUM!

Also included in the box were some English Breakfast Tea from the UK and a cute little Eiffel Tower Keyring which I will add to my keys to remind me that I want my next big holiday to be a trip around Europe.  In the meantime I will indulge in this monthly European treat.

I can’t wait to see what is planned for next month …

If you would like to receive a box of goodies each month go to “Europe In A Box” and sign up.

  2. Oh, so exciting! What a pity you had to share the Galettes Caramel au Beurre Sale though 😛

  3. How exciting!!Love receiving goodies in the mail and your box really had some good stuff inside 🙂 Love English Tea 🙂

  4. Oh, my goodness, Julie. I remember being impressed with your last box but this “pressy” takes the prize. Biscuits, chocolates from Barcelona, cheese from the Netherlands AND English tea! Does life get any better? Bon voyage to more gourmet adventures from your Europe in a Box.

  5. I absolutely LOVED those caramel biscuits too, have never eaten anything quite like them before. Love the surprises and the feeling that I’m being treated. It’s so true that a little goes a long way both with delicious novel foods and surprises!

  6. What a lovely gift!

  7. I signed up for Joy the Baker’s boxes and I got only one. I think mailing to Australia was just way too costly for her. I loved it when it arrived. 🙂

  8. Haha even if they are pre-ordered, goodies in a box in the mail absolutely rock 😀
    Lovely looking goodies in this up, I may have to sign up too 🙂


  9. I really need to sign up and get this Europe in a Box and get rid of that other Utaste I use to get 🙂 this is so much more exciting hehe

  10. Ohhh…the sound of those little salted caramel biscuits are making me drool. You’re way too kind in offering them. I think I would have hid them.
