The Mississippi Gift Company is your one stop destination for all things native to Mississippi. In the past 16 years, they have acquired a fabulous collection of food and gifts made by local families and businesses.
One of my favorite things to do is travel and explore new places. Along the way I like to stop at little shops and restaurants to sample local food and special treats. Since moving to Texas in 2009, we have driven our family of six, across country every six months to visit family and friends. My family, thankfully is patient. I'm constantly wanting to stop and explore shops along the way.
The Mississippi Gift Company is perfect example of a great place to explore! If you are in the,Greenwood, Mississippi area you can visit their retail store, if not ~ don't fret you can order online or through their catalog. I was impressed with their fantastic customer service and the option to create your own personalized gift basket or box.
I was sent one of The Mississippi Gift Companies, top selling gift baskets to sample. You already know I love baskets!! After I received it, I knew right away, why its a top seller. The basket was filled to the brim with several full size products!!
The Best of Mississippi Gift Basket includes:
Dix Fried Green Tomato Salsa 16oz.
Thames Foods Comeback Sauce 12oz.
Sarabella's Southern Sauces Sassy Raspberry Chutney 9.5oz
Flathau's Gourmet Cookies Butterscotch Snaps 4oz.
Wheeler's Roasted & Salted Pecans 3.75oz.
Mississippi Cheese Straw Factory Three Cheese Cheese Straws 3.5oz.
Everything in this basket is delicious! I was excited to try the cheese straws. I've heard of them but this was my first taste. The blend of white cheddar, parmesan, and blue cheese was a savory delight and was amazing with a glass of wine. The texture was crispy and light. The south is know for pecans, weather you say pecans or pe-cans, Wheeler's Roasted & Salted Pecans are right on the money! Sarabella's, Sassy Raspberry Chutney, is perfect drizzled over a brick of cream cheese and scooped with a cracker for an appetizer. I also warmed a little in a pan, then served it over a grilled chicken breast, very flavorful!! All of the products included in The Best of Mississippi Gift Basket are all natural great tasting items!! My consensus after reviewing this basket is ~ "I love Mississippi!" I'm excited for my next roadtrip and can't wait to visit The Mississippi Gift Company retail store!
