The reverse has details on the six included snacks and information about the referral program.
Torres Black Truffle Potato Chips. This is a unique set of flavors with authentic hits of strawberries, dried fruit, and cocoa. The black summer truffles are complimented with a peppery and bitter twist. I couldn’t get past the flavor but mu daughter polished off the entire bag. I was super surprised that she was a fan. I’m also very impressed at her willingness to try new foods.
Lacasa Dark Chocolate w/Orange Bar. La Casa is a well known Spanish brand and has been in the chocolate business for over 160 years. This simple dark chocolate bar with zesty orange flavor and its intense flavor of cocoa can be enjoyed anywhere at any time. I normally don’t get into dark chocolate but this was a perfect blend of cocoa and orange. Just a little bit of this chocolate can change your day… I hope that’s not just for me.
El Quijote Quince Paste (Crema di Membrillo) This item taught me the most about Spain. Quinces are a relative of the apple and pear, they are a native of the Caucasus resembling a large, yellow, lumpy pear. Spanish quince paste is most often eaten with cheese. Now just looking at the jellied state of this food I was a bit skeptical of how it would taste, I was wrong. This was delicious and I’m so glad I tried it. Next time I’m going to toast a baguette, slice some cheese and top it all off with Crema di Membrillo.
Picos Camperos (Mini Breadsticks) How cool is it that these started out as a way to use up extra dough and make children happy, now they are a staple of Spain. I loved these and will be adding them to my table as an appetizer with cheeses and dried meats. I might even include the next item on the list…
Manzanilla Olives stuffed with Red Pepper. Olives are my favorite salty treat when dieting and making a salad, oh heck they are my favorite anytime. These are crisp and slightly smoky. I can absolutely see why Spaniards serve these instead of bread as an hor-d’oeurve while ordering in a restaurant.
Lacasa Trugas al Cacao Pure (Pure Cacao Truffles) For any true chocolate lover these are a must. Made of high quality dark chocolate, the truffles are covered with a delicious layer of cocoa powder. They melt in your mouth and are super hard to resist. The dark chocolate presented by this month’s box are almost enough to make me reconsider my previous stance on dark chocolates, they are that wonderful.
April’s TopMunch was amazing! The olives were by far my favorite product this month, followed closely by the dark chocolate w/orange bar! This box is a great way to sample treats from around the world that you probably wouldn’t be able to enjoy without visiting the country yourself. Top Much has given me so much knowledge about the worlds foods and now my bucket list is built around the best food boxes. Can’t wait to see what next month has to bring me hopefully some coffee.
