A Pour Toi Review and Giveaway

The holidays are all about treats and indulgence.  Hot chocolate with a splash of mint, a warm fresh out of the oven snickerdoodle cookie, or even some hearty eggnog is always on the holiday agenda.  I feel that this time of the year is the perfect time to spend enjoying yourself with friends and family.  Have some laughs and share some family memories over a gift basket of holiday goodies!




A Pour Toi, which translates to "a present for you" is a start up company which was just founded in December 2012. The public launch will go live next month.  The company focuses on the elegant gifting experience that nurtures relationship through the joy of a present.  Each month, the founder curates a box full of healthy and delicious foods. Wouldn't you love to receive a box each month filled with foods that you enjoy? Goodies are always best shared with others, I believe.

I was sent a box of holiday treats which I couldn't wait to dive into. The packaging on the box is very unique.  The box sort of slides open on an angle and inside your treats are revealed in a fun drawstring bag.





What was inside you ask? Let me tell you! I received dark chocolate dipped almondina, handmade Italian butterhorns, bitter chocolate truffles, white chocolate pistachios, chocolate vanilla swirl cookies, and melon biscuit cookies.



As my eyes danced over the goodies, I wasn't sure what to try first.  I quickly settled on the chocolate vanilla swirl cookies, of course! These thin, bite-sized cookies had a light dusting of chocolate sugar on them and they were irresistible! They were crunchy and had a texture similar to a graham cracker. The chocolate was light and subtle but still gave the cookie a nice sweet flavor.  The sugar crystals on top gleamed in the light, and the light of my stomach too. :)  These would go well with a cup of coffee or tea perfectly.

The Italian butterhorns were my absolute favorite, hands down.  These twisted treats fit in my heart like a glove! The cookies are made from a light buttery dough and filled with cinnamon sugar and walnuts. The outside also has cinnamon sugar on it too.  It's light and flaky and just plain delicious.  I quickly became obsessed with them.  The inside is soft and just perfect.  I honestly can't get enough of them. I've never had one before and wanted to eat the whole bag in one sitting. I still do!

I tried the bitter chocolate truffles next.  The outside of the truffle was rolled in a very bitter dusting of chocolate.  Not exactly my favorite, but as soon as you get past that you're in the center of the chocolate universe.  Inside was smooth and rich chocolate that will make your taste buds sing and then you know all is right in the world.  It truly was fabulous chocolate.

I look forward to trying the rest of these treats in the next coming days.  I know I can't resist them for too long. :)
