As the Holidays draw near, national supermarkets know that it’s not always easy to find the right item to bring along to a party or pitch into that Secret Santa office pool. That’s why Whole Foods has rolled out a line of treats that fit the bill, all for less $10.
First there’s the Panettone, weighing in at 2 pounds and selling for $9.99. The sweet, round loaf studded with dried fruit is popular in Italy, and makes for a good dessert (especially bread pudding) or French toast the next day.
Their Caramels Fleur de Sel (5.3 ounces, $3.99) are blended with a sprinkle of hand-harvested sea salt to add some mellow saltiness to the dense sweetness of the caramel. Pairs well with after-dinner coffee.
Organic Truffles (8.8 ounces, $5.99) are available in chocolate, caramel, cappuccino, and cookie crumble varieties, and could make for a serious chocolate platter.
Truffled Roasted Walnuts ($7.99) are made in France, and are crunchy, roasty, nutty, and covered in chocolate. ‘Nuff said.
Assorted Belgium Chocolates (4-piece $2.99; 14-piece $9.99) come already packed up in a gift box, and make for a quick and easy gift.
Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Sandwich Crèmes & Chocolate Candy Cane Sandwich Crèmes ($3.99): Picture Oreos, but in peppermint and pumpkin flavors. You might just have to keep these all to yourself.
Milk & Dark Chocolate Marshmallows ($4.99) are light, squishy marshmallows covered in chocolate. Eat as-is or melt between graham crackers for some impromptu holiday s’mores.
