When I was contacted by FOODZIE and given the opportunity to giveaway two (2) of their Tasting Boxes to two lucky readers of my blog, The Princess Gourmet, AND also receive one in return, I jumped at the opportunity! I met the Foodzie team at last month’s 2nd Annual Foodbuzz Food Blogger Festival in San Francisco and got a chance to sample and enjoy some of the food items that are currently being offered and sold through their online marketplace under the same name.
I finally received my Tasting Box and it was waiting for me when I arrived home from work on Friday evening. I was pretty excited…and hungry but I had to hold myself back since I would be having dinner with hubby in about an hour. I eagerly opened the box:
Alfajores Cookies | Two individually wrapped buttery shortbread cookies filled with dulce de leche and dipped in dark chocolate. From Maitelates – Ann Harbor, MI
Heirloom Cranberry Beans | A bag of heirloom beans grown on a small-scale farm in South Central Idaho used in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. Includes a recipe for Italian Rice Salad with Cranberry Beans. From Zursun Beans – Twin Falls, ID
Bacon Peanut Brittles – Bar snack from an East Village neighborhood restaurant in NYC touted as more savory than sweet. Crunchy peanuts are tossed lightly with maple syrup with a dash of cayenne, thyme and small chunks of salty, smoky bacon. From The Redhead – New York, NY
Parmesan Flatbreads – An addictive cracker topped with a peppery EVOO, sea salt and a generous sprinkling of Parmesan Cheese. A percentage of each sale goes to the Native American community to celebrate the company’s namesake, Roggatha. From Little Ragghi’s – Ocean City, MD
Fleur De Sel Caramel Popcorn – Sweet and salty snack and while warm, tossed with buttery organic caramel and delicate, flaky fleur de sel. From 479º Popcorn – San Francisco, CA
In addition to Tasting Box subscriptions which are available in 3-, 6- and 12-month subscriptions, you can order specific food items of your choice from the many food and specialty producers that distribute through Foodzie: olive oils, cheeses, baked items, salts, fruit…anything you can think of! Foodzie items make great hostess gifts, stocking stuffers and even holiday gifts themselves…and not just now for the holidays but all year long. So check out their site when you get a chance. And who knows? You might want to place an order or two for yourself too!
