Insta-holiday extract-real taste you can actually taste-a drop-or a tsp- go a long way! 



It's appropriate we drink-wise,  inhaled the delicious limited MINT COCOA Califia Farms Almondmilk Creamer -with real coconut cream in an Ellen Degeneres LOVE Mug- as this plant based half n' half slayer...is such a morning java treat. Rich and and surprisingly creamy-with just the right amount of real deal cocoa powder and peppermint oil sweetness yet only 15 calories per serving.

The Republic Of Tea-has a not so cult-y cult following-their tea leaves that are USDA Organic, Rainforest Alliance sourced, Non-GMO certified fresh, and available in handy,  natural unbleached tea bags  Trust us -we feel that too makes a better difference in taste.
For the 'nip in the air' season...the caffeine-free Peppermint Bark tea-is a soothing at any time blend of naturally sweetish Green Rooibus left, with refreshing organic peppermint-enhanced with warmth of organic vanilla flavor and organic cocoa extract plus sweet stevia leaf.  Bonus points-rooibos teas-in particular-the green kind- boast anti-inflammatory-anti-oxidants, good for you health benefits.
These tins (the one pictured-$12) are festive enough-just tie on a bow=gift-able---but to one-up the offering-Republic of Tea has many kinds of tea gift sets -(like the stackable holiday tin sets $14 including 12 bags of the aforementioned -with 2 others )-ready to ship that NOW. 
Ho ho ho-SHEILA G's Brownie Brittles-(for the novice-these brilliant products are like having the BEST PART crispy, melt in your mouth topping- of a batch of fudge brownies...all sliced up in a re-sealable bag)...ties on a festive holiday bow with these limited edition 'drizzle' bits of heaven.

Even people who revel in their baking abilities don't even bother trying to replicate these widely available, enormously popular sweets...cause they cannot do 'it' better, Really.
But fyi-customize the experience-layer with ice cream or custard for festive parfait treats-of mouth-watering tastes + textures, or sprinkle atop hot chocolate. Our indulgent 'appertizer' version-spritz a massive amount of whipped cream in a dish-and use either as the crunchy dipper-popular  :-)
