Fannie May Berries Review & Giveaway (ends 11/22/12)

Turkey? Check!

Stuffing? Check!

Cranberry Sauce? Check!

If you are like me  you are most likely going through your holiday shopping list making sure you have all you need for your holiday dinner. Can you believe Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK? Wasn’t it just the 4th of July yesterday? Sigh…

What are you going to serve your guests and/or family for dessert? Are you going to bake a pie or a cake? Are you hoping someone else bakes one for you? After all, you need an amazing dessert to follow up an amazing dinner, right?

Why not skip the pie this year and offer your guests something different this year? Why not offer them chocolate covered strawberries from Fannie May?

If your family or guests like strawberries, and chocolate, then they will certainly love the chocolate covered strawberries that Fannie May offers.

My kids love chocolate covered strawberries. My husband was a bit of a “hard sell”. He loves strawberries, and he loves chocolate, but he thought the combination would be gross. I can certainly respect that, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying them. The chocolate is hard enough that you can break it off and eat it separately. It’s like two treats in one! Eat the chocolate, then enjoy the strawberry (or vice versa). As corny as that sounds my husband tried the strawberries that way and love it. Of course he’s missing out on just how delicious chocolate and strawberries taste together. Mmmm… YUMMY!

Fannie May Berries includes hand crafted indulgent flavor combinations including Sea Salt Milk Chocolate Caramel, Pink & White Champagne, Toasted Coconut & White Chocolate (Trinidad), Milk Chocolate Caramel & Nuts (Pixies) and Holiday flavors—Dark Chocolate Gingerbread, Candy Cane and Eggnog.

These are just some of the varieties available at Fannie May.

Fannie May Berries can be ordered and in the customers’ home within 24 hours!

I was sent a box of chocolate covered strawberries from Fannie May to review. I could not wait for them to arrive! I LOVE chocolate covered strawberries (or chocolate covered anything for that matter :-)).

I received the Full Dozen Holiday Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. The box included;

  • (3) Enticing, caramel-infused milk chocolate & crunchy pecans
  • (3) Tasty eggnog white chocolate
  • (3) Deluxe dark chocolate & spicy-sweet gingerbread
  • (3) Decadent white chocolate with candy cane bits

The box retails for $59.9. You can visit the product page for more information.

Heavenly! Simply heavenly!

The first strawberry I tried was the caramel infused milk chocolate strawberry with crunch pecans. I love the added crunch of the pecans. Who knew that pecans and strawberries would go so well together.

I was surprised by the gingerbread chocolate dipped strawberry. I love gingerbread but it didn’t sound like something that would go well with strawberries. I was so wrong! Gingerbread and strawberry (don’t forget the dark chocolate) is a perfect combination. It really did taste like ginger too! Just like a gingerbread cookie.

I wasn’t sure if I would like the white chocolate with candy cane bits, mixed with strawberry. I’m also not a big fan of white chocolate. There was just a little bit of crushed peppermint pieces on top so it gave you just a hint of mint without it being overwhelming. It was just the right amount.

I love eggnog and I was delighted with the eggnog dipped strawberry (also in white chocolate). My kids didn’t seem to fond of the flavor. That’s OK. More for me.

All of the strawberries were huge, rip and juicy. They all arrived in perfect condition.

Chocolate dipped strawberries would make a wonderful dessert option for your holiday meals. They would also make a great gift or hostess gift.

They are fresh, so they won’t keep too long and they must be kept refrigerated. However I challenge you to keep them too long. Ours were gone in three days.

Fannie May offers more than just chocolate covered strawberries. They also carry gourmet boxed chocolates, chocolate covered pretzels, Artisan Petits Gâteaux Chocolate and even a chocolate of the month club.

For more information, or to check out the dipped strawberries (warning – you might drool!) visit www.FannieMay.com. You can also find them on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/FannieMayChocolates).
