I've sent food as gifts (gift baskets, cheese assortments, candy, etc) but only twice have I ever received them. Once was actually a company sending me the winnings from a context I won (Wisconsin Cheeseman). which was a 5lb of Cheddar. I figured they'd send me this little sampler, but this was great.
Today was the best. Been stressed and opened my front door around 7pm after spending the day inside and there was a small package by the door. It was from a friend and when I opened it there were three large cookies in a trick or treat bag. White Chocoloate Blueberry. I can't lie. I expected them to be stale, but they were perfect. Not only that, as someone who doesn't like sweets, they are arguably the best cookies I've ever tasted. I had experienced this persons cooking and baking before, so I know he had talent, but these were sinful.
Gotta say, I look forward to more surprises like this. totally unexpected
