Don't you love it when you find a Christmas Present?

I ran across one of Christmas gift that Pelé gave us.  Pelé is my oldest son.  We don't see him much, partially because he is a private kind of person and is living his own life, partially because he is working third shift.

Pelé makes five different kinds of trail mix.  This is one of the versions.  Somehow this box got misplaced in the shuffle.

What sets Pelé's trailmix apart is the quality of the ingredients.  For example, the version he gave me had little chunks of peanut brittle in it.  The notable thing about those little chunks of peanut brittle is that they dissolved beneath your molars like ripe watermelon.  They really were peanut brittle...and buttery...and delicious.

The same level of attention was lavished on each ingredient.  The nuts were large, plump and FRESH.  The dried fruits were tender and had the perfect balance of sweet and tart.  The chocolates were flavorful; no brown wax here!

And there are little surprises.  The coarseness of the mix means that each handful will be different.  Those small "peanut butter cup" looking things on the left side of the box;  yeah, those.  Butterscotch!  Who would have expected?  Some of the chocolate had dried cherries inside of them.

Now I just have to figure out where to hide this box so nobody else can find it.
