Prep Praises: Petit Amuse Curated Artisan Treats

I am not to be trusted around delicious, artisan goodies. Why? Because I will justify spending our monthly food budget on a single basket of things like handcrafted artisan Rosemary & Sea Salt crackers, small batch jams & jellies, and unique craft brews. Just too much temptation.

In a world of mass-produced foods, there is something extremely alluring about being able to buy food that has only a handful of {real!} ingredients and was produced by real people as opposed to a factory of monsterous machinery.

You know, like the stuff you {wished you could} make at home.

But honestly, who has time to scout out shops & farmer's markets across the country every month to find the best of best? {If you do, can I please come live with you? Ok, thanks.}

Enter Petit Amuse.

Remember the "care packages" you got in camp or college? The ones that were filled with your favorite homemade treats because your Mom, Grandma, or other kind soul cared enough to rescue your taste buds from Ramen Noodles or cafeteria slop?

Well, I'm convinced that Petit Amuse only hires Moms & Grannies because these little boxes are pure packages of foodie love.

For $10 a month {not your entire food budget!}, Petit Amuse will select a handful of thoughtfully made foods, and send you a sample box to explore and enjoy. It's a seriously good deal considering the fact that you probably spend way over $10 on a couple of things that were cranked out on an assembly line and contain enough preservatives to mummify a small animal.

I received my Petit Amuse sample box and tore into it with as much enthusiasm as a 5 year old ripping into her birthday gifts. And this is what awaited me on the inside:

1. Ice Wine Jelly by Caramoomel
2. Garuka Bars by Garuka Bars
3. Cha-Chas by Lark Fine Foods
4. Salted Rosemary Shortbread by Lark Fine Foods
5. Sundried Tomato & Parmesan Popcorn by Oogies Gourmet Popcorn

Such fun, tasty treats!

One of the coolest things about Petit Amuse is that they hand pick exceptional products from small batch artisan food producers, who might not have the chance to get their fabulous goods out there otherwise. And if that isn't "do-gooder" enough, they don't even mark up the price and make a profit.

Their mission is simple: To expose people who love good food {you & me} to people who make good food.

If you'd like to learn more about Petit Amuse, subscribe for a monthly delivery {or gift it to someone... how thoughtful are you!?}, or take a peek at all the yummy things they have going on, hop over to their website and check it out!

*Dislosure: I received a Petit Amuse sample box to review, but I was not compensated for this post. The opinions I share with you are all my own. :)
