Today I got my Gotham Box for this month! A little taste of New York with a lovely postcard of the city and a note.
I love subscription services, but, being a “foodie”, I have to admit that the Gotham Boxes rank at the top of my list. They are so much fun to open and so great for gifts. You get unique and delicious hand-curated picks from the city you choose, New York or San Francisco.
This box had one of my favorite things – chocolate – Antidote chocolate to be exact and how did they know I would simply adore Banana and Cayenne? Exotic and delicious, not to mention made from 77% raw and roased organic cacao.
Antidote chocolate is made from delicious “Arriba Nacional” cacao from farms in the Ecuadorian Amazon, embodying floral flavors and a nutty aroma. I loved the kick of the cayenne (not too hot) and the taste of the sweet bananas from Ecuador.
This box of treats also had Baked homemade Vanilla marshmallows. Baked is both a neighborhood spot, and a nationally recognized bakery in Brooklyn, NY. These are like biting into delicious fluffy clouds.
Next up, The Well Dressed Nut! These are honestly the best pecans I’ve ever tasted – Cinnamon Vanilla flavored. Not too sweet, dressed just perfectly! The Well Dressed Nut was founded by two women who select the best pecans fresh from the orchard, dress them elegantly with delicious spices and then slow roast them in small batches. Sophisticated and very special. Are you nuts about nuts? I am now.
Rounding out the box was an original chocolate bar from Economy Candy, an old-fashioned family-owned candy store in New York!
The best part for me is the excitement of seeing the box waiting on my doorstep and the excitement of having absolutely no idea what each month’s assortment will bring.
In the past I’ve found delicious coffees, teas, popcorn and hand made granola. It’s like a monthly Christmas gift.
When looking for a unique gift that is ever-changing and always high quality, I definitely suggest Gotham Box. It’s perfect for Father’s Day, for birthdays, for friendship gifts or I miss you gifts, well, just about any occasion really!
