Here is this shipment’s Escape Monthly – European Winter Escape!
(My box was missing the tri-fold brochure with all of the product details, so I am not going to do a detailed review like I normally would since I don’t have all of the information – it will be just my impression of the items only).
My box included:
✻ Bisschopswijn Mulling Spices –LOVE LOVE!! These smell WONDERFUL. It can be used to flavor apple cider or just add some to a pot of water on the stove to simmer and let the aroma spice up your home.
✻ Christmas in Paris Tea – LOVE LOVE! I am a big tea drinker so this was welcome surprise! I also LOVE Paris and anything French so I was very excited to give this a try. Ingredients included coco shells, peppermint, lavender, chocolate flavor and vanilla extract. All I can say is YUM!!
✻ Clement Faugier Creme de Marrons de L’Ardeche Chestnut Spread – DISLIKE! This was interesting….I didn’t know they made Chestnut Spread. It just tasted like watery nut sugary yuck – kind of like cardboard! Not for me…I will get my husband to try it this weekend and see what he thinks.
✻ Mini Madeleines by St. Michel –LIKE!! These French sponge cakes taste great and go well with tea, enough said!
✻ St. Dalfour Red Raspberry & Pomegranate fruit spread –LOVE LOVE!! This spread is delish! Goes great on the mini sponge cakes. I love the combination of Red Raspberry & Pomegranate.
✻ Nougat de Montelimar –LIKE!! You can’t go wrong getting nougat, it was good!
✻ Tree Ornament from Germany –LIKE! It really didn’t add any value to the box, but it is cute.
✻ “European Christmas” Book by Rick Steves –LOVE! I was expecting a travel guide but this book was interesting. Had some recipes, info on traditions and I really liked the “Top 10 Things To Do In Paris at Christmas”.
✻ Total Retail Value of this Box – $57!
I really LOVED this box! At first when I saw it was all food (except the book) I was a little disappointed but it WAS fun to try all the different things from Europe! I hope future boxes have a variety of items and not just food.
Also, the main thing I wanted from these boxes was the travel guide and I was sad to see there was no travel guide in this month’s box! I was looking forward to the travel guides so that I can plan our yearly trip that my husband and I go on and I thought the guides would be great to help us decide on where to go. BUT, I can say the replacement book was nice and very interesting.
So, I think this box was a GREAT start to introduce me to Monthly Escape and I will be getting the Portland box later this month to review for you. Yea!!
