· Original Cheese Biscuits by Salem Baking Company - 1.5 oz. - These bite-sized biscuits are made with extra-sharp aged cheddar cheese and a hint of cayenne and paprika seasoning.


My Take:
First off I want to say how impressed I was when I first opened the package, look just how carefully packaged the basket was.  So when I pulled it all out everything was still in perfect place, well at least until I started pulling it all apart and reading about all the yummies I was about to devour (I mean share).  I didn't want to post this review until I had had the chance to actually open each package and try them out for myself.
I've officially made it through trying everything in the entire basket, and the only thing I wasn't completely in love with was the Original Cheese Biscuits.  I thought they were a little too salty. However, my kids seemed to love them so maybe I just have a more sensitive pallet than they do.
I was very impressed at the large nuts that were in the Chocolate Nut Medley and the Cranberry Orange Tango.  The Cranberry Orange Tango was actually surprisingly good. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the cranberry and orange flavor but apparently I really liked it because somehow the bag ended up empty on my desk. : )
I really don't like coconut so I gave the Bountiful Harvest Granola to my hubby, and well the same thing happened to him as did me with the Cranberry Orange Tango - all I found was an empty bag on the table a little later.
The Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Melt-a-Ways were very good and creamy.
And another snack I was surprised was so good was the Key Lime White Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were awesome, not at all what I had in my mind when I bit into the first cookie.  This time however I was smart and took just a few cookies to my desk leaving the package down in the kitchen to share.  Otherwise I think they too may have ended up mysteriously disappearing which would not have been good for my struggling with trying to diet and exercise!
