We’re opening samples of Neilson-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Powder, Coffee & Chocolate Extracts, plus the Putt A Round for perfecting your putt at home or in the office and Mr. Cheese O’s, a protein rich snack with crunch from Sonoma Creamery.
Nielsen-Massey’s intense, premium pure vanilla products have been around since 1907. We’re unboxing it in this video, but you can read about how we’ve been incorporating it into recipes, too. We’ve used the extraordinary vanilla powder in our Sweet Potato Ice Cream Recipe and experimented with adding the coffee and chocolate extracts in unexpected ways to vegetable sides and main course dishes with chicken. We also just received some of their Vanilla sugar. The texture is perfection and the flavor is so delicious, I’m not sure it will make it into the sugar scrub as originally intended. You can find Nielson-Massey products at fine retailers, online and at your local Williams-Sonoma store.
Mr. Cheese O’s from Sonoma Creamery (since 1931) are such a tasty snack! They are full of flavor and are more like fried cheese than those bright orange snacks that leave your fingers the color of a hunter’s safety vest. The ingredient list is short and familiar, the taste is addictive and Mr. Cheese O himself, well, he’s a doll! While we all enjoyed all four flavors, Original was our favorite. We shared these with the crew. Out of the 5 of us, everyone rated Original in first or second place. So we recommend you start there, but you’ll want to try them all. Mr. Cheese O’s are available at grocery stores. Locally, we’ve seen them at Gelson’s, Ralph’s, Smart & Final and BevMo.
Okay, I guess this it the Sonoma Unboxing episode! Sonoma, California, known for its wonderful wines is also home to some beautiful golf courses. The Putt A Round putting aid is the perfect gift for your favorite golfer, whether they’re practicing for a trip to Sonoma or wanting a great way to remember that magical round near the vineyard. The fact that the flag is customizable, makes this putting aid unique. It would make a great business gift, trophy, tournament prize or highly personal and thoughtful present for your favorite golfer. I especially appreciate the nice packaging and the way you can putt to it from anywhere in the room. Note, of course this does not include balls, fake grass or a putter! I don’t see this as a detriment. It gives you the opportunity to add a sleeve or box of balls, possibly monogrammed, to a golf themed basket with a new towel and some sunscreen.
