Little Treats


Hello sweet friends! A quick pop-in today. With a gift suggestion, for you or for someone you like! If you have a Trader Joe's nearby (I haz a big sad for you if you don'ts), have you seen these big, beautiful tins of amaretti?

Truth - I bought them for the tin. I'm going to use it as a cookie tin when they're all gone. But what's fun about this biz is that the amaretti are handful sized and soft, as opposed to the crunchy kind, which I was more familiar with. I think I'm going to buy another tin for my step-dad, he loves his treats! Aren't they so FESTIVE looking? The flavors are chocolate, raspberry, coffee, and chocolate rum.

Really, those whole presentation of the treats within the gorgeous box is quite fancy and fantastic, if you ask me, which nobody did, but that's why I have this blog - so I can expound upon whatever I want, whether anybody wants to know or not. If you're wondering whether all that power has gone to my head, you'd be totally right. (I'd like to remind you, lest you think I've gone extra special round the bend, that I'm really a fairly wee blog and I'm really not power mad. It's just that December has melted my brain. Hurray for Christmas zombies!)

Bottom line - this would make someone an awesome present, if you're freaking out about certain people and what to get them. I'm trying to be Very Helpful.

  1. How lovely. Unless our liquor laws change, though, we may never have a Trader Joe's here. Sigh. (Gotta keep the mom and pop liquor store owners happy...)

    And you crack me up. Thank you.

  2. Confession: I buy stuff for the tins too ;-) Even if the candy or tea is not the best, the tin would be totally a reason worthy enough to buy it!

  3. Life would not be the same without Trader's. I'd be stuck eating ordinary peanut butter forever and ever, and that would be very said indeed because they sell the very best, tastes-just-like-real-peanuts peanut butter. Love that tin!

  4. I wish, oh I wish, that I lived near a Trader Joe's. The closest one is an hour drive away, in a direction I never go. Thank you for your sympathy.
