    Great gift at a great value

    I sent this gift to a family friend as a housewarming gift. She had mentioned that they were so busy, I thought they might appreciate some snacks around the house.

    I sent this gift to a family friend as a housewarming gift. She had mentioned that they were so busy, I thought they might appreciate some snacks around the house.

    She was so thrilled and delighted. She even took the time to send a picture of the gift basket.

    We received this basket this year as a gift. And have received three other gift baskets over the past three years. All were the same.
    The boxes make the basket look like it is worth the price. It's not. It appears WCGB markets to older people. The photos and write-ups are very misleading. Even with shipping included (they are still not worth the price.

          This is my "Go-To" gift basket. I have sent this basket several times over the years for birthdays, sympathy, retirement, Christmas, and get well gifts. The assortment has changed slightly over the years and so has the container… but it is consistently well received. No mystery items that get shoved to the back of the pantry to expire! HIGHLY recommended by this loyal customer.

          Comments about The Connoisseur:

          Delivery was wonderful, just on time and the recipient was pleased at the gift, however, $59 for less than 2.5 lbs. of goods.... Some items had only 1 or 2 pcs in a box. The basket looks huge on the picture but in reality is very undersized. For $59 I could have gone to gourmet grocery store and made up my own basket with individual items. It would have been 10+ lbs., not this lightweight, pretty but skimpy, full of items, that are not so good for you and with rather bad ingredients. I did not expect health food, but these things were like something you would buy in a movie theater but in better boxes. Just as expensive and just as bad for you. I will not be ordering from this company again, that is for sure.

            I did get to see this and was not impressed. It was on sale and shipped free so with that in mind I guess it was OK. I don't feel that it is worth the $50.00 price tag.

              I have always received rave reviews from recipients.
              The only thing wrong with this gift was that there was no gift card attached. I made specific remarks and there were names added to the card which did not get recognition. I was extremely disappointed.
