Can you hear the sound of sleigh bells ringing? The bells' sounds are all too familiar around this time of the year; it's the official siren indicating Christmas time is here. Are you done with all the Christmas preparation?
Did you finish all the Christmas shopping? How about the beautiful decor, did you finish decorating your house? Is your house smell like a gingerbread cookie yet? Oh, how about all the Christmas goody? Did you finish baking a delicious Christmas cookie? After all, what a Christmas without a delightful mouth-watering cookie, right?
Cookie and candy are the staples of Christmas activities; it is what Christmas all about. But when we had so many things to do and so little time, we just had to thank our favorites stores for selling many delicious Christmas goodies.
These are Christmas goodies from Trader Joe's that are worth trying for and serving with family during Christmas time, or you can wrap it up for teachers, neighbors, coworkers, friends, and family Christmas gifts.
1. Baton Lover's Quarter Rolled Wafer Cookies
This cookie was a hit in my house. Initially, I bought two of these for Christmas; I had to taste it if it's worth serving for our Christmas party, but I keep tasting it until the two cans empty, so I have to go back and buy four more cans. And I hid it inside one of our kitchen cabinets, turn out, is a bad idea!
I don't know what I was thinking of hiding the goodies in the kitchen cabinet when everybody in the house has access to it. And guess what? Of course, they found it; by the second day, the Baton Lover's Quartet wafer cookie becomes the lover's of my family, and by the third day, it was gone, nothing left for Christmas.
Finally, I had decided to appoint myself the only "taster" in the family to prevent what's happening on all the cookies for Christmas. And I'll go back to Trader Joe's store and get more of these delicious cookies for Christmas. I guess I don't have to describe how delicious these cookies are for you to hurry and get some to try.
2. Hot Chocolate Sticks Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate is my obsession, and when it is dark chocolate hot cocoa, it becomes my weakness.
Every Christmas, we always celebrate with a Hot Cocoa bar when guests can make their delicious drink, complete with sides that they can mix and match to make the hot drink more festive such as a candy cane, winter peppermint, caramel, cinnamon, and a lot more.
This Hot chocolate Sticks Dark Chocolate will be a great addition to our decor and annual hot cocoa bar; it tastes delicious and easy to make; all you need is to stick it in and stir in the hot milk ready to drink. And also, this hot cocoa is a perfect item for Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers.
3. Mediterranian Olive Oils
If you are undecided about gifts for kids, teachers, friends, and neighbors, I think this oil would be an excellent idea for a last-minute Christmas gift, and I'm sure they would love it; who does not love olive oil?
This oil comes from three different countries, Italy, Spain, Greece, and is delicious enough to make a great addition to salad dressing and marinades, and I can use it also for cooking pan-frying and sauteing. And perfect for dipping with croutons.
I love the packaging, and each bottle is a medium size, enough to use for Christmas gathering with family, and is an excellent addition to your dinner and dessert table.
4. Perugina Italia Baci Dark Chocolate
This chocolate is one of my favorites; at first, I bought two for Christmas gifts, but I couldn't stop until two empty boxes after trying one. Initially, I only try to 'taste it' but boy, I was wrong, because it's too delicious I got hooked and forgot to stop. So I went back and got four more boxes and put them aside for our Christmas dessert table so we can enjoy it all together, but my daughter finds the chocolates. If it's like she has the nose for it, she can find any cookies that I hide. I pretty much sacrifice myself to be "the taster" in the family and gain eight pounds over it, but suddenly everybody wants to be "the taster" too, well as you know, four boxes gone event before Christmas party.
Perugina chocolates are made according to Italian tradition and are excellent chocolate with a unique flavor. This fine chocolate box contains 28 dark chocolates to taste and enjoy, each wrapped in love and friendship notes, giving us a wonderful message; this kind of love is meant to be shared. This Chocolates are delicious, filled with hazelnut cream with a whole hazelnut in the center, making this chocolate and tradition of affection a pleasure to give and a joy to receive.
5. Hot Cocoa Snowman
Looking at this snowman hot cocoa makes me want to sing: "Do you want to build a snowman? C'mon, let's go and play! I never see you anymore, come out the door, it's like you've gone away
We used to be best buddies, and now we're not; I wish you would tell me why
Do you want to build a snowman? It doesn't have to be a snowman. it can be making a hot cocoa snowman?"
Do you still remember this song and the movie? I remember how my daughter wants to be an Elsa on the school Halloween parade, but I told her that Elsa was so popular I'm sure lots of her friends would like to be Elsa too. I was right in the school parade; almost every girl in that parade was Elsa! My daughter was one of the winners of the school Halloween costume parade, and I guess because she was the few students that weren't in Elsa's costume.
Now that she is a teenager, I'm the one that sings this tune to her because she is too busy being a teenager; she hardly hangout with her mommy anymore, but we both agree this snowman hot cocoa is cute and fun to have for our Christmas hot cocoa bar. This snowman hot cocoa is super cute, stylish enough to be the center of attention of our Hot cocoa bar. All you need to do is to put it in hot water then, voila! You got your snowman hot cocoa.
