My box from Knoshy actually arrived a few days ago. This month’s theme is “Movie Night” and while I love the theme … some of the items in the box are curious choices for the theme. I can see the connection with two of the items … the other two have left me wondering!
The first item that makes sense to me: Parmesan & Rosemary flavored Microwave Popcorn from Quinn Popcorn. I mean, who doesn’t want popcorn when watching a movie? I’ve tried the Vermont Maple & Sea Salt Popcorn from this company, so I was really excited to try this flavor.
The second item that makes sense: Pop Corn Pop chocolate bar from Chuao Chocolate. Again … popcorn! And of course, a candy bar is always a welcome treat at the movies! I’ve tried at least one or two flavors from Chuao Chocolatier, and they are the producers of one of my very favorite chocolate bars (the firecracker bar!) so I’m thrilled to be able to try something else from them.
The next item in the box is a Basket o’ Marionberries from Willamette Valley Confectionery. Now, don’t get me wrong – I LOVE these things. I’ve tried them before, and I was thrilled to find them in my box this month, but, what do they have to do with Movie Night? I guess candy is something yummy to eat at the movies? I don’t really get a clear connection, but I’m happy to be have these yummy confections again, so I’m not complaining.
The last item in this month’s box is a “footlong” marshmallow from Quin Candy. The flavor of the marshmallow is Water Avenue Coffee – meh. OK. I’m not a fan of coffee, and I don’t get how a coffee flavored marshmallow has any connection with Movie Night at all. After perusing the Quin Candy website (I love that this company is LOCAL!) I found a couple of candies that would be more in keeping with the Movie Night Theme, like perhaps Cherry Cola Gumdrops (soft drink at the movies? Yes! Coffee at the movies? No!) or how about Popcorn Caramels? (Yeah, it would be probably really beating the popcorn thing into the ground.)
Oh well, I like hand crafted marshmallows, so I’ll give ’em a try. A coffee flavored marshmallow should be tasty in a hot chocolate, right? And I’m really excited about the other products in this month’s box!
