Bea's Gift Baskets Review

I absolutely love receiving gift baskets for special occasions.  How could you not smile at a beautiful basket filled with your favorite treats and goodies and tied with a big bow? The answer is you can't! Now that Christmas is here, it's the perfect time to delight someone with a basket that will surely make their day.  Let Bea's Gift Baskets take care your of holiday needs.

Bea's Gift Baskets is gift basket paradise for any gift basket you could possible need.  They are themed for winter, fall, summer, any holiday, new baby, get well, congratulations, etc.  If you're in need of a housewarming present for a new homeowner or gift for a birthday, these baskets would work perfectly. Of course the baskets could be sent for practically any reason too. They are filled with anything from cookies and snacks to bath and body products to coffee and tea and everything in between.  The baskets are put together with love and dedication and the recipient will surely appreciate them.

I was able to select a basket for review. Last year I reviewed a basket of Bea's and knew I had to eventually do another one.  The time was now here! I took my time in selecting a basket as I really loved everything I saw.  It was a hard decision! I finally settled on the Sensational Seasons basket, which I knew was a perfect choice.  In just a few days the basket arrived and I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into its contents!
Ok, ok. I promise I'll share.  I'll have everything in the basket and leave you one piece of peppermint bark. ;)

Wow! Look at all of the fantastic goodies in the basket.  I received truffle cookies, a bar of Ghirardelli peppermint bark, English tea cookies, Lindt truffles, chocolate chip cookies, and cheese and crackers, just to name a few things! I couldn't believe how many great tasting things were in one basket.  It must be a dream!

The red basket came beautifully wrapped with a large red bow around it.  It was very festive for the holidays.  I wasn't sure what treat to begin with.  My eyes darted between the cheese and crackers and the peppermint bark.  You all don't understand my addiction to peppermint bark.  It's my favorite holiday treat.  Too bad it's seasonal and I can only get it during Christmastime.  I figured why not try the cheese and crackers and the bark? It's the holidays, after all! 

Ghiradelli makes amazing chocolate and I had no doubt that the peppermint bark would be everything I had hoped for, and oh was it! I was ready for a first class trip to chocolate world. The sweet chocolate on the bottom was blanketed with a layer of white chocolate on top.  Of course on top was large chunks of peppermint bits.  Pure perfection, if I might add.  I started off with a small piece and it was heavenly. White chocolate and dark chocolate are a great combination together.  The peppermint bits gave the treat a cool and frosty finish and a nice crunch too.  One piece is definitely enough to curb your sweet tooth.  Nothing says Christmastime like peppermint bark.

The cheese and crackers were a hit with my taste buds too.  The Monterey Jack is one of my favorite cheeses of mine so I was pleased to see that's the one I received.  I topped a 3 pepper cracker with a piece of cheese.  The smooth cheese had a wonderful, creamy flavor.  The cracker had a nice hint of spice in it that paired well with the cheese.  I couldn't resist and had to have another piece of cheese! It was delicious.

I look forward to trying the rest of the goodies.  The basket is calling my name from the kitchen.  I can't resist much longer! Why not treat yourself to a basket from Bea's gift baskets this Christmas, or any other time in the future?
