Swiss Colony #HGG2014 #Giveaway

Reviewz & Newz is helping promote this WONDERFUL giveaway from Swiss Colony!!


Winner will Receive their own Andes Mint Cheesecake, and the 26 Holiday Favorites Gift Box.  Good luck!


I like cheese cake, and I like Andes Mints.. combined.. it's out of this world to me.  Every time I literally go to the Swiss Colony online to browse I stop to drool at the Cheese cakes.  The Andes Mint Cheese cake is a good 2 lbs+, and a layer of thin chocolate over top, so it gave it that chocolate crunch when biting into. Also, there were Andes Mints pieces there too.  


The Cheese cake inside was minty with chocolate chips, I love minty!  The crumbly crust is a chocolate too. It really is rich in flavor, I ate some straight out the box and then some later after it chilling in the fridge.  Both ways I loved. My mini me is a very picky eater but he snuck into the fridge to eat some.  That's how I know it's good.  



I'm like a little kid when the delivery man comes with the classic Swiss Colony Boxes.  I know what is it just by the writing, and boxes.  It always puts me in such a great mood, and I sing a little Swiss Colony song.



Now my son does a Happy Dance for the 25 Favorite Things Gift Box.  There is no hiding how happy this Gift Box makes him.  (His happy dance he bends to the side, and sways a little. It's the cutest thing ever.)


Who needs a fancy, expensive toy when you can just buy Sy a Cheese/Meat/Cake/Chocolate Box.  There are also mustards, petit fours, mini tortes and jams in the box as well.


My overall impression? Between the meat, and the cheese, the cheesecake, the sweets.. even the sweet spicy mustard (btw I could dip anything into that, and eat it. the mustards just amazing. I wish they sold that by bigger jars!) this was a great combo to snack on, and enjoy for desert.. to me, the perfect Holiday Gift.

  12. Christmas in my parents home was always wonderful! The meal was delicious! I remember that, for some reason, I was always more excited about my Christmas stocking than my gifts. As an adult, I like to attend a TSO show and a performance of Handel's "Messiah" - always a great memory for me!

  22. Waking up and rushing to the tree only to freeze because the floor was vinyl and the heat had been turned down low so you had to choose to freeze & be close to the packages or lose your spot at the tree and go warm yourself by the radiator. As the youngest of 6 it was a very tough decision! LOL!

Everyone love that they are homemade and the kids are proud of their creations!! Having fun building memories AND not so rushed right before Christmas!!

    My favorite Christmas memories are trips to the tree farm with my children, riding the tractor-drawn carriage, waiting by the wood stove for the ride back to the parking lot, and having cookies and hot wassail, while the tree is being prepped for the ride home...

  66. My favorite memory most recently was 2 years ago my brother told us he wouldn't be making it home for Thanksgiving. I arranged for his children to be at my house so we could spend the holiday, even if he wasn't going to be around. They are family, after all! Then about 10 minutes before dinner was served there was a ding dong at the door! My sneaky brother was standing there with a pumpkin pie. It was the best surprise!
