The Brittle Box Candy Co. review and giveaway! US 12/18

Ah the holiday season! Like anything else, different folks like different aspects of this special time of year. Some like the weather, others simply love visiting family. A lot of people can't wait for the holiday gift exchanges while others start humming Christmas songs early in October. Me? Well I love love love all the special holiday goodies I allow myself once a year! I remember my gramma's busy kitchen during December. She baked and dipped and whipped up gobs of delicious candies...but my favorite day was brittle day. It was magical to me....Gramma would put sugar and a couple other ingredients in her old saucepan, cook it for a while and when a tiny bit changed to the right consistency when dropped into a glass of cold water, she'd stir in the nuts and quickly spread it onto a buttered pan to cool. I loved tapping the hardened brittle with the back of a butter knife to crack it into edible sized bits...but even more than that, I LOVED eating it!

 Recently, we were blessed with a selection of delectable brittles from Amedeos Bakery, aka The Brittle Box Candy Co. Move over Gramma! I'm sorry to say it, but, these guys have you beat!

With family roots in Tuscany and Calabria Italy, candy maker extraordinaire, Robert Roberti is a third generation Italian Baker.. He hand makes Italian Breads, Biscotti, Cookies, Gelato, and much more. He loves FOOD! Making it, baking it.... and oh yes, eating it!

 Now don't get me wrong, Gramma's peanut, cashew and almond brittles were awesome, but with luscious gourmet offerings like Blueberry White Chocolate Almond, Cranberry Edamame, Toasted Sesame and Brazil Nut Blueberry Caramel, Amedeos Bakery wins hands down!

It doesn't end with brittle, though. No Siree! There is a delightful selection of cookies, scones, barks, bundt cakes and more to be found at Amedeos Bakery. Go ahead and indulge. Put some lovely brittle or delicious truffles on your holiday table. Both your tummy and your guests will thank you!

Are you tempted to pop on over to Amedeos Bakery and order some of their delectible goodies for yourself? Want to be entered for a chance to WIN some? Well, today is your lucky day because I just so happen to have a $25 Gift Certificate up for grabs.
