Do you have any grandparents in your family? While my own Grandma and Grandpa passed away, I am very fortunate that both of my parents are alive. Not just for my own sake, but also for the sake of my boys. My parents are the only grandparents that my boys have ever known, as my husband’s parents passed many years go. Grandparents are wonderful, and definitely deserve a celebration. Did you know that there’s n official Grandparent’s Day? Yes there is, it happens every year on September 7.
Grandparent’s Day has been around for more than 35 years. Even though it’s been around for a while, some people don’t know that there is a Grandparent’s Day. GourmetGiftBaskets.com knows. The company’s sales of gifts for Grandparent’s Day jumped about 51% from 2012 to 2013, and their gifting experts expect a significant increase this year.
The folks at GourmetGiftBaskets.com asked me to check out their service, bearing the fact that Grandparent’s Day s approaching. People in general enjoy yummy edible treats. Treats like cheesecake. I love cheesecake, so after browsing the site for about an hour I settled upon two cheesecakes. You can choose how fast you want your order delivered when checking out. If you need something delivered in a hurry you can choose to have your order delivered within 1, 2 or 3 business days. Delivery is available domestically, as well as to US Territories, APO/FPO and international locations. Cheesecakes and some other products require specialty insulated packaging and either gel-packs or dry ice to ensure the product arrives in perfect condition.
The 6″ Fruit Cheesecake Sampler retails for $34.99. It contains four types of cheesecake – Strawberry Swirl, Cherry, Lemon Blueberry, and New York. There are four pre-cut slices of each type of cheesecake. Plain cheesecake is something I rarely turn away and this one did not disappoint. The cheesecake was smooth, rich and creamy. My favorite of the three flavors was the strawberry. Hubby fell in love with the slightly tart Lemon Blueberry. This cheesecake is also available in a 9″ size.
The 6″ New York Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake retails for $29.99. The base of this delicious dessert is a classic plain New York cheesecake. There’s a thick layer of ooey, gooey chocolate fudge covering the top of the cheesecake. This cheesecake is also available in a 9″ size.
