Today I saw, on one of my favorite foodie bloggers' blogs, a plug for Petite Amuse. Check them out: Petite Amuse! Seriously. I am enamoured.
They offer gourmet and specialty food sample boxes to introduce consumers to small food producers, helping them compete with the larger, mass-producing companies. The sample boxes seem a wonderful way to try new products without spending a lot. And, judging from Kristin's sample box just received, I am going to love this subscription.
This month she received - ice wine jelly from Caramoomel; salted rosemary shortbread and Cha-Chas from Lark Fine Foods; sundried tomato and parmesan popcorn from Oogie's Gourmet Popcorn; and something from Garuka Bars.
After reading her post, it took me all of two minutes to sign up for my very own sample box. So, when I get that, you'll hear back from me. Until then, I'll just peruse their website and drool.
