Let’s Get Tasting!
We reviewed a box from beautiful Seattle but Canadian Hole in Wall’ers can get in on this month’s box from our own, very delicious, Quebec City!

Orange Honey Hazelnuts
The After Eight of nuts, Holmquist Orange Honey Hazelnuts are fresh, sweet and don’t overpower you with orange. Made entirely with ingredients I recognize and can pronounce these are real food. I’m not usually a fan of hazelnuts not in chocolate-spread form, but their sweetness and light sugary vanilla coating enhanced with orange and honey make these a snack time winner.
Dried Organic Bosc Pears
Do they look like dry branches? Yes. But put these out on your desk and you’ll be wondering where all your twigs went.
I love pears. I wait for pear season all year and slow dried Tiny’s Organic Bosc Pears are as delicious as the juicy fresh ones. Chewy soft texture and sweet flavour, they have become a go to afternoon snack to hit the sweet spot. Feel free to lord your healthy choices over your vending machine cookie eating colleagues!
Healing Hemp Lotion
It’s not all snacks and treats at Hole In Wall. Healing Hemp Lotion from The Fay Farm, LLC smells of the very natural organic ingredients it’s made with. A light and fresh blend of real lemon, chamomile, lavender and of course hemp, this cream nourishes skin right away. The natural oils like apricot kernel and essential oils are absorbed in the skin without leaving a big pharma oil slick on your skin.
Salty and floral this humble mix of home grown organic lavender, sage, thyme, kosher salt and garlic has quickly become my spice rack favourite. So far I’ve dashed it on to scrambled eggs, sprinkled it on cooked shrimp and rubbed it into a large roasted chicken. The taste is distinct, unique and ups your cooking game.
Whiskey-Smoked Salt Caramels
Do you really need any more incentive than the words whiskey smoked salt caramels? Made with local ingredients and headlined by Samish Bay Whiskey, these caramels from Jonboy are made velvety rich with Skagit Valley Cream. Jonboy chocolates has infused these little guys with Yakima applewood smoked salt, and used only pronounceable organic ingredients like organic brown rice, organic cane sugar and butter. JonBoy Caramels is a proud Seattle-based artisan confectionery that uses only ingredients grown and produced nearby. Not super sweet or too boozy these have smooth unexpected flavour with a glorious salty-smooth finish. Good luck controlling yourself.
Pinot Noir Cherries
“That one’s my favourite!” I shared this box with my spouse and this is how he responded to eating these dark chocolate candies from the Chukar Cherry Farm. No preservatives or artificial ingredients, these are gluten free and infused with chocolate friendly pinot noir. He also wants you to know that, “The cherry is dry in the middle, not all saucy. That makes it good”
Boehms Chocolate Bars
Attention Chocolate lovers! Call your sponsor cause you’re about to have a relapse.
I’ve always thought that like pizza, chocolate was good even when it was bad but this chocolate beyond. Smooth in texture, rich in flavour with zero sour or flat notes, Boehms Milk chocolate bars are thick, satisfying, and send rich anti-anxiety flavour rushing around your mouth. Wrapped by hand and finely moulded, break off a square or two for an after dinner treat.
Vanilla Lemon Lip Balm
Certified Organic and lightly infused with deliciously fragrant vanilla and lemon essential oil, Moon Valley Organics Herbal Lip Balm goes on utterly smooth. Velvety and soft this stuff is made entirely with organic natural ingredients including beeswax. It smells delicious enough to eat and won’t leave a waxy taste in your mouth. It is immediately soothing and left my lips feeling soft and dare I say, youthful-ish. The tube is recyclable the product is GMO free and not tested on animals. Guilt free soft lips!
