Feeling Like California with California Delicious -- Gift Basket Review

Feeling Like California with California Delicious!

My father grew up in California.  He is your typical old man hippy now with the long hair and big belly, but that surfer boy is still in there somewhere.  Occasionally in the summer while I was growing up my parents, sister, brother and I would load up our old station wagon and drive the 2 day trip from Manhattan, Kansas to Costa Mesa, California.  The many memories I have of those car trips are matched with the fantastic memories of my grandmother's house and her beautiful orange trees that lined her back yard.  The State of California has so much that is beautiful and delicious going on that the company California Delicious has decided to bring you the high points, right to your door!  



Who doesn't love Gift Baskets?  They are filled with different options for your palate and look so pretty!  Recently we had a chance to work with California Delicious.  Delicious, indeed!  Every bit of Sweet Cheeks in this family ate it up!  The California Classic Sweet Chocolate Gift had a little bit for each of us! 


There was so much inside this gift basket!  I am a chocolate addict and I am struggling so much with my body's new-found hatred for dairy.  The dark chocolate was perfect for me though!  Of course I had to eat a little bit of eat item.  Everything looked too delicious to pass up.  The Marich Chocolate Cherries were my favorite part.  Dried cherries in creamy milk chocolate and silky fruit confection equals perfection!  Ally was super excited for the Peppermint Bites!  I also learned something new about Cooper with this basket!  He prefers dark chocolate over milk chocolate.  The Nunes Farms Mocha Almonds, Thatcher's chocolate popcorn, Le Grand Chocolate Truffles and Chocolate covered Grahams were all gone within the weekend.  Hungry family or delicious basket?  Maybe both! 


Another quick trip down memory lane leads us to the gift baskets my dad's brother used to send us around the holidays.  They always had sausage and cheese in them.  I think as the years pass by and our little family moves away from friends and family, we may start doing gift baskets too.  We'll let California Delicious do the delivering right to your door.

ALSO-- Be sure to check back in with us soon!  We may just have a California Delicious Gift Basket giveaway waiting for you!

A special thank you to California Delicious for giving Sweet Cheeks and Savings the opportunity to work with them.  We were not monetarily compensated for this review.  All opinions are our own and are 100% honest.
