World Box Update
Swedish Flatbreads - Very tasty, but too salty for me so I thunked it (technical term meaning I tapped the flatbread with my finger while holding it over the sink to get rid of some of the salt) before eating.
Brazilian Peanut Candy Bar - Tasty ( Ok, I lied it's incredibly tasty like the peanut filling in a Reese cup but much lighter) TheHub wants to find where we can buy more of this. He loved them. Nerd that I am, I have already been hunting recipes to see if I can make this instead of buying it.
Swedish Licorice - Great reviews from Son2 who, unknown to me, likes licorice. I smelled the box and it smells like every other licorice, which is just gross.
Brazil Nut Cookies - The bomb! They are like a nutty shortbread, not too sweet and not too rich. Delicious and another product TheHub wants to find and keep on hand
Nordic Fudge - Nice flavor and great fudge consistency (I did stick in the the fridge because August is a bad month to ship fudge to Alabama and it was seriously misshapen when it was opened) but it was certainly not chocolate which is how I like my fudge. It has a very fruity flavor. (Citrusy Prune is the closest I can think of to compare it with?) Like I said it is not bad, just different. Since I ordered these boxes to try things outside my norm things should taste different but this is a product I don't need to try and duplicate.
Double Chocolate Crisps - These were fantastic. The crisps were almost like a sweet coconut pastry with a thin but very rich dark chocolate filling. (Slightly thicker than a hot fudge sauce, but so much more delicious) Yet another product I am going to have to find and have on hand occasionally.
Nordic Coffee - It is tasty but really is no different than my regular coffee. Using my Keurig refillable K cups we were able to get 5 cups from the package.
So far the flavors have been quite good but the package sizes are very small. It definitely is giving me some flavors I have never tasted, which is a good thing and has turned me on to possibilities of cooking differently (like those peanut candy bars.)
We were at the lake this weekend and I forgot to take/hide the goodies. When we got home Son2 had been here and the remaining Brazil nut cookies and peanut candy bars were gone. TheHub was particularly bummed out since he wanted both of them. I guess the saying "you snooze, you lose" applies here.
Will do an update on the remaining items as they are used!
