Europe in a Box Review March

Autumn is knocking, the leaves are falling.  Grey clouds and crisp wind make us crave our favourite comfort foods.  As the evenings cool down, all we want is to cosy up with a book and a warm drink..........

Mmmmm sounds wonderful, I love the cooler weather and this was such a lovely way to describe Autumn.

I recently purchased a Europe in a Box for my husband to celebrate our Anniversary and luckily he was home today when it arrived.  He was very surprised to receive this box and absolutely delighted while he rifled through it, there were many oohs and aahs from us both.

There is a card pictured below with information printed on the back describing the main spotlight items;

FRANCE ~ Le Cordon Bleu Galettes Caramel Beurre Sale ~ 100g ~ Brittany Shortbreads with chips of salted caramel.

SPAIN ~ Blanxart Drinking Chocolate - 200g - A rich satin chocolate drink awaits........

THE NETHERLANDS ~ Roka Gouda Cheese Bites ~ 75g ~ crispy puff pastry biscuits ~ pop in the oven for a few minutes and enjoy with a glass of our German Sparkling Wine.

GERMANY ~ Henkell Trocken Picolla ~ 200ml ~ dry full matured sparkling wine, the taste is fresh, tingling, with a lingering finish, while a subtle fragrance suggestive of tropical fruit and hints of ripe pear and green apple develop the bouquet.

Also included in the box were samples of;

Greek Ouzo Candy ~ one of my husband's favourite flavours!
Italian Strawberry Lolly
English Tea Shop Organic Earl Grey Tea ~ teabag
Eiffel Tower Key Ring

My husband was absolutely thrilled with his gift, we spent some lovely time together looking at all the wonderful goodies and reading all the interesting information about each product.  We taste tested the shortbread and the verdict is "YUMMO"..........

I thoroughly recommend Europe in a Box to anyone who wants a "something different" gift or just a special  "spoil me" present for yourself.

You can find Europe in a Box here subscriptions are one month, three months or 6 months.  Please use the special codes SPREADTHELOVE for $5 off a one month box or DISCOVER EUROPE for $10 off a three month subscription, codes are available until the 30th of March.

I certainly think this box makes a wonderful gift and I know my husband will enjoy all his special treats.  We are definitely looking forward to the weekend to enjoy a chilled glass of sparkling  wine with some warmed Gouda Cheese Bites!

What a great way to celebrate our Anniversary.
