This basket is impressive in many way - its looks, presentation and the taste of the goodies enclosed, which is not the case with so many of these packaged presentation products.
Why then do I feel it really only rates 3 1/2 stars (I did upgrade to 4)? The main reason is that I really do not like deceptive packaging and the majority of the boxes contained in this basket are much bigger than the product enclosed and not for protected packaging either - cookies rattle around in way oversized boxes. 1.The fudge is good, but more like a soft cookie than fudge, there are two pieces in a box that could hold 4. 2. Sweet butter cookies, again great taste, they are very small cookies, but they come in a plastic wrapped tray that only fills 3/4 of the box. 3.One chocolate biscotti, it does fill its box 4.Cream puffs, very, very small, but good in a foil bag that only fills half the box 5.Chocolate wafer cookies, again very good and small 6.Chocolate chip cookies, 9 small cookies, 4 with no chocolate chips, but all taste good - again only ½ the size of the box. 7.Wafer rolls very good, these do fill the box. 8.2 truffle cookies, that package is 6 1/2x2 1/2, the box is 8"x4x1/2" 9.Cashew Roca, not very good, almost tastes stale and its package is2 1/2x3x3/4 - its box is 3 ½ x6 x1 1/2. 10.Peppermint popcorn is good and filled its box
The basket looks very nice but is not sturdy at all; the handles wobble and seem very close to falling off. Prices always seem to change and at the time of this review, none is posted -you would have to decide if this is worth the price, but just know looks can be deceiving, even if the taste is good.
