March Foodzie Box

This month, after checking out my options, I decided against the cooking box. I was drawn in by a much more appetizing option, the Ski Lodge Cafe tasting box. Of course, selecting something that was perfect for the cold early Spring in New England meant that wasn't the weather I got. Instead I got something more akin to early Summer in New England, which made me not want eat much of anything from the box when I got it.

Now that the weather's cooled down again, I'm more interested in the contents of the box:
  • Chai tea
  • Hot Chocolate on a Stick
  • Marshmallows
  • Shortbread Cookies
  • Java Rocks
  • Peppermints
While shortbread cookies aren't my favorite type of cookie, the two I got were reasonably buttery and quite crumbly. I'd eat them again if they were in front of me.

I haven't tried the hot chocolate yet, but it's on my to-do list now that I have more almond milk in the fridge. I noticed that they have instructions for American style and European style hot chocolate on the back. Evidently Europeans only use water in their hot chocolate. Personally, I think that's a little weird. Don't you just end up with some watery hot chocolate?

Everyone knows that hot chocolate is best with marshmallows, so there had to be some in this box. If you've been following my blog, you know that I made my own marshmallows at the end of 2011. I was pleased to see these marshmallows were just as square and covered in powdered sugar. Handmade marshmallows are the greatest.

I'm not a huge fan of tea in general, which we've discussed in these posts before. But when I opened this bag of tea up to give it a whiff, I was surprised to find many of my favorite herbs. I smelled tons of ginger and cinnamon. I'm going to have to attempt to make a good cup of this tea one of these mornings.

These are good. Really good. If you like coffee and chocolate, get them and try them. I have to be very careful not to eat a bunch because they have coffee in them and I have the caffeine tolerance of a rodent. My poor little heart couldn't taken it.

I normally don't buy a tin of mints, even though I quite like them. This is because instead of just sucking on them, I end up chewing them to bits. I enjoyed these because they actually had little bits of peppermint in them! And because they're made locally in New England.
