HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE…By JackieBelle
The best boss I ever had was one who went away a lot. It wasn’t that his absence made his employees’ hearts grow fonder- it was that whenever he came back from Grand Cayman or whichever gorgeous place he and his gorgeous wife visited over the holidays, he always brought back Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cakes. For those of you who have not experienced the pleasure of having a boss who travels often and returns bearing tropical treats, let me fill you in on what you’ve been missing: Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cakes are decadent little desserts that are baked in the Caribbean from a generations-old family recipe and hand glazed with five-year-old, oak-barrel aged Tortuga gold rum. Their classic flavor is the Original Gold with walnuts, and there are seven other irresistible varieties, like coconut, chocolate, banana, key lime, Blue Mountain coffee, pineapple, and cinnamon rum raisin. Stick with the classic style and serve them alone or get creative and dress them up with toppings like fruit, chocolate shavings, or even ice cream. (This would also be a really good time to drag out that well-loved but underused fondue pot!)
Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cakes are baked fresh daily in the Caribbean and then specially vacuum sealed to lock in freshness so they can be shipped anywhere in the world. You used to have travel to tropical locales or find a really unique gourmet shop to get these, but now they are available www.tortugarums.com. While you’re there, check out their savory Caribbean sauces, gourmet coffees, fudge, gift baskets and more. You can also order by calling 1-877-486-7884 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 1-877-486-7884 end_of_the_skype_highlighting, and they can be shipped anywhere in the United States for only $32.95 each, including shipping. Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cakes are known worldwide and are always a welcome gift – especially in a fuzzy red stocking hanging by the fireplace. And they’re perfect for any occasion, so don’t feel like you have to wait for your boss to go away to celebrate!
