Sweetbox Food Porn!

OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! O.M.G.!!!
Okay, I got my sweetbox today! I got my sweetbox! I got my sweetbox!!!! Jealous yet? Well, you should be. I have been stuffing my face with these dellectable delicacies ALL DAY! Jin sent me this sweetbox two weeks ago, and we've been waiting ever since. I was honestly starting to think that some fink at customs might have swiped it, but it finally arrived!

I picked the box up on my way to work, and since I had to wait until I was done teaching my belly dance class to open it, I just stashed it in my locker. LOL! It BARELY FIT!!!!! LOL! And those are large lockers. It dawns on me that I should have taken a photograph of that, but heck, I had better things to do. Like slicing through the box man! Little pink foam packing peanuts flew all over the place. Another member of the club was right there watching me as she was preparing for her own workout. I dug in, and found a beautiful card from Jin to me, which I'm not going to post, because she filled it with lovely sentiments meant for me. Suffice it to say, that I aggree with her wholehartedly in the fact that I am one lucky person to have found a friend in her.
This is the business card from Uniquely Yours:

And the philosophy behind each of Jin's creations is this:

These "Petits Fours" were the first items to fall into my mouth, er, hands... Shall I describe them for you? Here goes: "A layer of shortbread, seedless raspberry preserves, almond sponge & Belgian chocolate ganache"... Well, the only way I can describe these is like, well, a lapdance for your tastebuds! I felt generous, and guilty after being witnessed popping one of these in my mouth, right there in a fitness facility, where women go to lose weight, and would prefer not to fall off the diet wagon.... So, being the generous soul I am, I shared. I shared 5 pieces, and you know what happenned? Every single woman who had one of these, sounded as if she'd just had an orgasm when they ate one! I kid you not! It was that instant "Eyes-rolling-in-the-back-of-your-head-slow-deep-throated-moan".... OMG! Where did you get THESE!!!! Of course I told them: Uniquely Yours Pastry Shoppe in Wisconsin!

Oh dear, are these what I think they are? Yes! Yes! Yes! They're those lemon-laced Jasmine tea glazed shortbread cookies! Oh, that's gonna be good.......

Oh, gosh, two of the cookies got broken... I suppose I should eat them then....
Mmmmmmmmmmm!!!! Wow, these are even better than I'd imagined!

Well, since I'll have to eat them, I might as well make myself a nice spot 'o tea. Meethinks these will go really well with my organic Fennel tea...

Oh, I was right. Just a light dunk to soften them up ever so slightly, mmmmmmmmmmmm....


I couldn't wait for Jaimee to get home, Jin is so thoughtful, she even sent something special for her: Buttery cutout Bumble Bee cookies, decorated with white and dark chocolates. Look at her face! I mean, just look at it! She's never seen suck cookies. As a matter of fact, neither have I!

Oh Mommy, look! They're little yummy Bees!!!!

Oooh, mommy, these are soooo good!!!! Then she looked up at me and said: "Mommy, I'm eating a bee! A yummy sweet bee!!" LOL!

Of course, there were a million-calories worth more of goodies involved here. Sorry, no food porn as of yet, but I did taste these, and also regaled Jin with my oralgasm noises over the phone... Try this on for size, MINT BROWNIES: A layer of dense brownie, topped with whipped mint flavoured butter filling & covered with Belgian chocolate glaze... elwkuo sh qhpepy Oops! Sorry! I was just trying to wipe some of my drool that just spilled all over the keyboard! Um, I've had two of these already... Here's how they feel in your mouth: Like light chocolate-minty clouds. You take a bit of the moist browny, and just let it sit on your tongue. Then, gently press your tongue to the roof of your mouth, nice and slow... yeah, just like that. And enjoy the wild cool titillating minty burst! Hooh! I think I need some alone time, with a few of those brownies....


But how could I forget, there was also a generous offrand of biscotti for my darling hubby, since he's the biscotti afficionado. Jin sent him two kinds: the "Phenomenal", which is crystallized ginger & Belgian white chocolate, topped with Pearl Sugar. And the "Celestial" Melted chocolate, Dutch cocoa, mini chocolate chips, topped with chocolate... Chocolate anyone? The latter prompted an immediate text message from my husband while I was teaching my evening class, of "These are the best fucking biscotti I've ever had!!!", end quote! LOL! ('scuse his language!)



Well, here you have it folks. The best part of the delivery for the little one must have been this box filled with packing peanuts. She's been playing with them all night, and even brought a few to school with her this morning. Sad isn't it? That all this yummy goodness will probably spoil her for the rest of her life from any other storebought, mass-produced, yucky perservative-filled cookies....

The fact that my friend took such painstaking efforts to ensure that this sweetbox made its way to me undammaged is beyond words. And you know me, I'm pretty verbose... Too bad about those two cookies, but I'm pretty sure they didn't mind being sacrificed to the Jewellery Goddess, in the name of Jintrinsique! ;) And the irony of my receiving the package on Jin's birthday isn't lost on me... LOL!

Thank you so much Jennifer, for your thoughtfulness and generosity. You are a gem, and not many people in my life deserve that title. Only a handful, I assure you. I'm very happy that my other gem-like friend, Camille, turned me onto blogging, and hence, allowed me to find a friend like you. Tonight, I will try my darndest to share some of these delicacies with another gem, Maria. She's had a tough couple of weeks, and I think she and I need to hang out for some Kwawfy Twawk, and some goodies.

P.S.: Like my new haircut? ;)

Love. Peace. Harmony.

Woo Hoo!!!
A biscotti account!
COOL! LOL!
Normally I have 6 varieties on hand, too. I've been WAY behind in keeping stocked up on them. Takes me an entire day of full ovens to make 2 or 3 kinds. (Cos they bake so long!)
