****GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED... Congrats to Brittney K. for winning****
Last night I read a vintage blog post from Dr Weil describing a few healthy holiday gifts. The items on the list were so simple, yet so perfect. They included a gift card for a massage, music, long-lasting flowers, a certificate for a personal training session, and chocolate. Dark chocolate. High in quality. He advises that it be at least 70% cacao. (I would be thrilled to receive any of these gifts!)
And that is why I am happy to offer this Allison's Gourmet review + giveaway to you guys. Any of Allison's vegan treats would make a superb holiday, hostess, work or "just because" gift for the holidays and into the new year.

Review. I have tasted a few of Allison's treats in the past and they are always AMAZING. But this past week I tried the toffee, peanut butter cups and truffles for the first time. I have to say, the peanut butter cups may have been the best I have ever had. My reasoning is because they were not "too sweet" and you could really taste the pure peanut flavor mingling with the creamy vegan chocolate. Sometimes all you taste in peanut butter cups is the sugar, but the creamy peanut butter, silky and nutty, was the star of this confection show.
The vegan toffee was super buttery, sweet, crisp and air-y. I loved it.
And the truffles were such a treat. Super high quality and gourmet. They had very rich chocolate centers, but the distinct flavors of each truffle still came out in each bite. From raspberry to mocha and salted caramel - each truffle was uniquely heavenly. This cute purple box would make a very elegant gift.
So if you love delicious treats (or just want to try some vegan treats to wow your guests!) give Allison's a try.
