Creative Holiday Gifts with Nielsen-Massey Vanillas & McCrea's Candies - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
This holiday season let Nielsen-Massey Vanillas and McCrea's Candies be a part of your gifts.  The two company’s flavors pair perfectly together, creating an outstanding, original present that will stand out from the crowd.  Some ideas include:

·         Hostess Gift – For the hostess who has it all, these luxurious products are the perfect, scrumptious way to say thank you.

·         Infused Holiday Drinks – Make a homemade, infused Salted Caramel & Coffee Vodka for a unique signature drink that’ll be the hit of the holiday party.

·         Caramel + Sugar + Herb – Create a sweet and savory gift for the foodie by pairing the products with a planted herb—it’s a beautiful and useful present that’s sure to delight!

Whether gifted individually or included in a gift basket, these delicious items will surely be a hit:

·         McCrea's Black Lava Sea Salt Caramels (5.5 oz tube, $14.95) — Rich, creamy caramel with crystals of Hawaiian black sea salt. A moment in paradise.

·         McCrea's Classic Vanilla Caramels (5.5 oz tube, $14.95) — McCrea's original caramel generously infused with sweet, aromatic vanilla. For the purist

·         Nielsen- Massey's Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar (7.5 oz jar, $23) — A flavorful blend of gourmet baker's sugar and the pinnacle of all vanillas, Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract. Use it in any recipe where vanilla and the sweetness of sugar are desired.

·         Nielsen-Massey's Pure Coffee Extract (2 oz bottle, $9) — The rich, freshly brewed flavor is achieved through our careful distillation of premium coffee beans. This concentrated extract is easy to keep on hand, unlike ground coffee or beans, which rapidly lose their flavor.

I made a batch of cookies using Nielsen- Massey's Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar and Nielsen-Massey's Pure Coffee Extract.  I added the extract into the mixture, then sprinkled the sugar on top once the cookies were done.  I won't even discuss how quickly we devoured them!  I plan on making a batch again to share for Thanksgiving.

McCrea's Classic Vanilla Caramels and McCrea's Black Lave Sea Salt Caramels are amazingly delicious.  The 5.5 oz. tubes are made of heavy cardboard and have a lid, which make the packaging quite nice.  The Classic Vanilla Caramels are made with fresh milk, fresh cream, and other ingredients to make them oh-so-good.  The Black Lava Sea Salt Caramels are just as creamy and taste like heaven to my tastebuds.  Each caramel is individually wrapped and there are approximately 20 caramels per tube.

Win It!

One person will win a Nielsen-Massey Vanillas & McCrea's Candies gift box that includes:
