Mother's Day Sweets and Treats Basket from Gourmet Gift Basket--- Review and GIveaway




I was very excited to be offered the opportunity to review a basket from Gourmet Gift Baskets.    I've seen them online before and thought they looked like an easy, yet thoughtful gift for people you need to ship a gift to, or for those hard to buy for individuals.   I was asked to review the "Mother's Day Sweets & Treats Basket".   I was only too eager to check out the yummy sounding treats put together in such a cute basket.    Love the bright colored curled ribbon!  They also carry other Mother's Day baskets such as ones for golf lovers, gardeners, one packaged in a fun lunch tote, and more!

My basket arrived looking like this:

 Included in the basket:
  • Key Lime Chocolate Chip Cookies-- I love the combination of key lime and white chocolate so I was happy to see these in the basket!   They're medium sized and crunchy with a nice mellow taste.
  • Bountiful Harvest Granola--This is a moist granola filled with grains, seeds, and fruit.    It was yummy eaten plain out of the bag, and I also put some in a bowl and ate it with a bit of milk on top.  Great both ways.
  • Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Treats-- My son who is an avowed lover of Reese's Cups announced this his favorite item.    They aren't too sweet and do melt in your mouth.
  • Cranberry Orange Nut Mix-- Oh My!    This was so delicious!  It had walnuts, almonds, pecans and cranberries with an orange flavoring on them.   My only complaint about these were that I wanted a HUGE bag. 
  • Metropolitan Trail Mix--My family loves dried fruit so this was a treat for everyone.    It has dried pineapple (to die for), papaya, bananas, other fruit and assorted nuts.    Great snack!
  • Chocolate Covered Nut Medley--My husband loves chocolate covered nuts so these were a favorite of his.   These have macadamia nuts, pecans, walnuts, almonds and cashews covered in milk chocolate.  Another big hit with my family. 
  • Cheese Biscuits--At the end of taste testing so many sweet treats, we were excited to find a savory snack included.    These little biscuits have a strong flavor of sharp cheddar cheese and a bit of a kick.    My son asked for some more of these but I'm not sure I want to share!
My overall impression is that this would make a great gift for anyone, including your mother or mother-in-law.  You could order the basket delivered to them if they live out of town or you could ship it to yourself and arrive on Mother's Day with this nice surprise!   You could also drop some not so subtle hints to your family to order one for you.   In addition to the wide assortment of tasty treats, the basket makes a nice presentation.
