Well, not from this food lover. If this cost 15 delivered, it might be an okay value. 20, meh. 25 or more, no way.
Here's why: the food is simply not that good. It's all snacks, and they come in that faux-fancy packaging favored by boutique hotels and first class airline hostesses, the kind of gilt-edged gold-embossed wrapper that says, "Hey, you've made it! You don't need to worry about price anymore, so just eat the half ounce of mediocre snack food herein and rest assured that it must be really good, even if it tastes barely above average."
The only exceptional flavor here was in the shortbread cookies, and even those are no better than Walker's, if that. Everything else had the fancy name and package and trendy ingredients (truffle oil on popcorn?) but none of the exceptional quality those things should signify. All they really signify is marketing, frankly.
And that's what this basket is: marketing. It's about marketing yourself to others by sending a very-likely-overpriced gift basket that looks great (it really is a nice little basket, with a "hand-wrapped bow"...come on, they really had to mention that? I don't know, sometimes a good robot-wrapped bow is what I really need) and signifies success and care, but is actually just a big piece of mid-level quality merchandizing.
But then this is exactly the sort of thing that mega-corporations send out a thousand of at Xmas and write off on those taxes they never pay, so who cares about actual content and quality? It's appearance that matters!Read more ›
Now on to the things I didn't like which is why I gave it three stars. I didn't really care for the variety of snacks that was in the basket. The only things that really stood out to me was the butter cookies, popcorn, and the cheese straws. All the other items were bland or didn't taste good. I also didn't care for the sizes of the packages. They were a little on the small side to be able to share with more than two people at most. I know that there is a weight on the snack attack basket of 10.2 ounces but when you open the packages of items and most are only half full it is disappointing.
If you are looking for a small variety of items in a lovely basket then you may really enjoy this. Buy one and try it for yourself.
I wouldn't pay more than $15 for this basket. The amount of snacks you get and the quality of them is not worth much more than that.
This basket (and maybe the basket is the best thing about it) is for a more upscale taster. Yes, it'll go good with wine, especially a dry red one, but don't get it just for snacks.
Unfortunately when I started opening the individual items, I found there was a disconnect between the packaging and the contents. Part of that is probably attributable to my taste. For example the popcorn is flavored with black truffle and white cheddar cheese. The taste is totally different than what I had expected or what I was used to. If you are accustomed to this taste, you might rate it much higher than I would. So the taste of some of the items was much different than I expected.
There are seven separate items in the gift basket: 479 Popcorn, Honey Mustard Sourdough nuggets (pretzel nuggets), Cranberry Harvest Medley (cranberries and almonds) Tavolare Savory Snack (Chex Mix), Cheese Straws, Cucina Chips and Sweet Butter Cookies (Danish Butter Cookies).
The serving portions are deceptively small. Based on the packaging, you would think the serving sizes are twice as large as they actually are. The entire contents only weighs 10.5 ounces. I felt like for such an elaborate basket and such wonderful packaging, there would be a bit more actual product.
The packaging makes you think you are dealing with some very unique products. But most of the products can be found in the grocery store. For example I believe most people would have a difficult time telling the difference between the Tavolare Savory Snack and Chex Mix. They look and taste the same.Read more ›

I paid 6.99 for this basket a few days before the price went up by $22; I'd say my price was right. I could have gotten almost every one of these items in some iteration from... Read morePublished on April 26, 2013 by Tamara Baran

The variety of snacks in this basket is lovely; I appreciate that there's a focus on savory rather than sweet since savory flavors tend to go better with many wines. Read morePublished on May 24, 2012 by SAlaska
