Swiss Colony Makes Holiday Entertaining Easy

Disclaimer:  I received the following product from Swiss Colony to facilitate my review.  As always all opinions are 100% my own.  Thanks to the #sponsor for providing this package. 

It's that special time of year when celebrating abounds, and Swiss Colony just made my life a whole lot less hectic.
I haven't even gotten to Christmas and I'm pooped out.  The kitchen should have a closed sign on it, but that's no where near happening.  I know y'all know what I'm talking about. That means we have to find short cuts where we can.  Well, I'm all for short cuts but I'm not going to sacrifice taste. Thanks to Swiss Colony I won't have to do that.

Just take a look at the HUGANTIC box of goodies that was waiting for me at my door!! The package even makes a pretty holiday presentation to ship to a friend or loved one as a gift.
I have to admit, I was excited to open this bad boy!  I mean really, it took up most of my dining room table.
Here's a little background info on Swiss Colony I bet you didn't know:
Even though I was familiar with them, I had no idea that Swiss Colony has been around for 86 years! That's right they started their company in 1926.   No wonder they're so good at what they do.  Swiss Colony is the WORLDS LARGEST handcrafting bakery.  That's no small feat and takes dedication to customer satisfaction to stay in business for that many years.

Swiss Colony is no longer a company that just provides edible products, they also have all sorts of personal and home gift assortments.  In-other-words, there is something for everyone on your shopping list.  Who wouldn't be happy to have this arrive at their door.

Look at this feast for the eyes.  Yeah, now that's what I'm talking about.

This assortment has 65 different treats in it.  I have to tell you it not only made a beautiful display but there wasn't one thing in the box that wasn't absolutely delicious.

The petits fours are tempting little cakes that beg you to eat one.  With sweet aromas and creamy taste, they are just the right tidbit of yumminess.  With assorted flavors of almond, orange, lemon, strawberry and vanilla flavors, you find more than one that you'll love.  Swiss Colony's Master Bakers, create these delicate little cakes with the richest butter creams and a exclusive blend of chocolate and Swiss creme.
My gift box came with 6 incredible spreads, but they actually have 14 different spreads you can enjoy.  The Cheddar, Swiss and Cream Cheese are blended with seasonings and vegetables, or meats to create these mouth-watering spreads. They're so creamy and easy to spread you'll be wishing you had a whole crock full.  By adding crackers, pretzels, bagels and vegetables to a tray with these spreads you'll have a platter of appetizers to enjoy.  Easy-peasy!
I added mine to a cutting board with the meats, cheeses and crackers.  Ummm...so good.  *Tip - dress the cups of spread up by sitting them in paper cupcake liner.
Pull out all your holidays trays and add the cheese blocks and wedges for pretty displays.  Once again - pure deliciousness. I didn't even put everything in the box on the table. This box is loaded!!
There was more spreadable goodness with the cheese wedges and links.
I love the pretty tortes and cakes in the flavors of the season.
The seasoned nuts are addictive.  You can't just eat one.  I used mini cup cake papers for individual servings.
A wheel of spreadable wedges even makes a pretty sight.
Of course they added coffee samplers to wash it all down with.  I received the Holiday Blend and the Morning Blend. Both are rich and pleasant.  They have other delectable flavors that I weren't a part of this gift pack but I can't wait to order, like Chocolate Raspberry, I'm wanting that one so much!!  Doesn't Cinnamon Streusel sounds wonderful too?  I can almost smell it.
I used to believe this was a luxury that I could only enjoy if someone was considerate enough to send one to me.  Now, I'm thinking that I deserve a little help during the busy holidays and it's much more affordable than you think, saving you time, money and a lot of work.

There were also goodies like the Santa and Christmas tree shaped mello cream candies - which are so good, jelly candies and strawberry hard candies. Oh' and I can't forget the cookies covered in dark and white chocolate with holiday swirls.  So pretty!
Why didn't I think of this years before?  I didn't even have to leave the house.  It's like a party in a box.  I saved all that time and stress of shopping, not to mention gas!!  I love that with just a simple click of the button, I can be done and just wait for it to show up.  Swiss Colony will be showing up at my house for many holidays to come.
This is only the first part of the Swiss Colony fun.  You know I don't like to be selfish, so come back tomorrow to see how you can win one for yourself or for someone special.  Until then, why not stop by Swiss Colony and check out all the unique and delicious items they have.  Like these adorable Santa Melties here: Swiss Colony Santa Melties
