California Delicious Gift basket Review. Plus, $50 #Giveaway!

This post was inspired by California Delicious. I received one free for consideration. All opinions are my own. 
California Delicious is a company that sells very nicely put together gift baskets for every occasion imaginable. What I love about this place is that they don't leave anything out and the majority of the baskets are tailored to specific likes of many different facets of personalities. I chose the "California Gourmet Cutting Board Gift Deluxe"which is filled to the brim with everything I as a foodie lover could have wanted. I am picky about what I eat and I was very pleased with everything that came in this basket. I chose this one because it had many different things. I wanted a mixture of sweet and savory, but didn't want to go overboard on the sweets so I picked this one. It has a great variety and just the right sized portions. It's perfect for those picky eaters who only want the best meat cheese and chocolate.

The basket consisted of the following:

Wooden Cheese Board
Cheddar cheese
Sourdough Bites
Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies
Napa Valley mustard
Columbus Salami
Monterey Jack Cheese
California Fruit Candies
Cheese Knife
Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares
Santa Barbara Olives

( Things are sometimes switched out if specific products aren't available.)

All very fair and decent sized portions for the money. This is perfect for two people. Pair it with some nice wine and go on a gourmet picnic! 

Everything that I tried was absolutely delicious. The meat was very fresh and tasty. Not too salty or too anything. You get two big hunks of it. The cheese was superb, as was the hot honey mustard I paired the meat and crackers with. The sourdough bites were so incredible and i'd never tasted them before. I love olives and these were really good as well. The dried apricots were very fresh and made a great contrast to the cheese and meat. All the chocolate and biscotti was delightful and made a perfect ending to a yummy savory brunch. The almonds and the fruit candies made great snacks throughout the day. The cheese board and cheese spreader were very nicely made and durable. I'm getting good use out of them.

 I was so impressed with this basket and I know that you or the loved one you gift it to will be just as impressed too! 

This Company is definitely Gift Guide Approved!
