Snack Attack!

Look what was delivered to my doorstep this week:

A Deluxe Snack Attack gift basket from ProFlowers.  You want snacks, this basket has them.  It includes:
  • 6 oz. Colossal Pistachios
  • 6 oz. Corn Nuts
  • 6 oz. Honey Sesame Sticks
  • 6 oz. California Trail Mix
  • 6 oz. Honey Toffee Peanuts
  • 6 oz. Rice Cracker Mix
  • 6 oz. Smokehouse Almonds
  • 6 oz. Roasted Salted Cashews
  • 6 oz. Honey Roasted Peanuts
  • 6 oz. Cinnamon Toffee Almonds
Cory had to dig right in and pull  all the bags of snacks out of the basket.  It wasn't really for his birthday, but I let him open it up anyway.  As he pulled off the top layer, he said, "the rest if filled with Easter grass."  (not really Easter grass, but a shredded paper filler)  And then, he dug some more and found another layer of snacks!
There are two bags of each item, so you can open one at a time while the other half stays nice and fresh until you're ready to eat it.  The bags are not re-seal-able, which would be nice, but not having to open all of the toffee peanuts or all of the rice snack mix at once pretty much makes up for that.  The basket also came with an information card that has all the nutritional information for each item.  I'm sure it's something that has to be included with any food items, but ProFlowers packaged it nicely in a pretty envelope, which is nice.

I've never before received a basket like this or sent one either.  I honestly always thought that they probably looked better in the pictures than they actually were.  ProFlowers has me re-thinking that!  I think this was just as good if not better than it looked in the picture. 

We couldn't decide what to try first.  I wanted to keep all the Cinnamon Toffee Almonds for myself, and Jeffrey wanted to try the Butter Toffee Peanuts - so we started with those.  Both were really good, and I did share.  Then Cory chose the Rice Cracker Mix, and I think I like that best of all.  So good!  There are a lot of snacks here, and we're enjoying them all. 
Once the snacks are gone, I'm sure I'll have fun finding a use for the basket, too.

ProFlowers has all kinds of birthday gift baskets to choose from. This is just one of them.  There are baskets like this one with the nuts and snacks, baskets full of sweets, cookies or fruit, baskets and boxes with wine and cheese and sausage, and more.  If you're looking for a gift for a birthday or other special occasion, check out ProFlowers.  It looks like they have something for everyone. 

Note: I received this gift basket free of charge from ProFlowers for review.  I received no monetary compensation.  All opinions are 100% mine.
