Gourmet du Village New Arrivals

As August marches on new items seem to be arriving every day. Several different taste combinations have come in from Gourmet du Village including a host of hot chocolates. New flavours for 2014 include peppermint and pumpkin pie. Each packet is $1.29, or buy any 10 for $11.50 to stock up.

In addition to hot chocolate Gourmet du Village also produces an apple cider mix. This year they have added a different twist – cranberry cider. At $1.29 per individual serving packet they make another warm alternative to coffee or tea.

Dessert sauces are one of the exciting products now available. Gourmet du Village has released both a chocolate dessert topping along with a salted caramel one at $8.95 per jar. Yum. A great addition to ice cream.

In the savoury line pumpkin pie spice mix in recipe card format ($3.50) and mulling spices in a glass jar ($10.50) complement an already extensive selection.

With so many great choices it’s even easier – or harder depending on your point of view – to make up a great gift basket or bag as a wedding present, shower gift, hostess gift, thank you gift, or any other occasion.
