There is almost no doubt that the holiday season this year will be much different than those of years past due to the topsy-turvy events of 2020. Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese is shaking things up to meet the changing needs of its shoppers this season by unveiling new farm fresh cheese and gift boxes. With gatherings limited and travel less frequent, the demand for online ordering and remote gifting are more popular than ever, and Crave is meeting that demand.
“These gift boxes make wonderful holiday gifts for family and friends,” said Debbie Crave, Vice President. “Shoppers can choose our Sampler Box with all our favorite cheeses or a fun option is the Chocolate Mascarpone pie kit which gives them everything they need to make our luscious dessert. The mascarpone caramel sauce gift box is perfect for apples or an ice cream topping dessert. We can mail the gifts so it’s a no fuss option for consumers.”
As family members and friends may not be able to make holiday events this year, Crave Brothers’ Chocolate Mascarpone Pie Kit is the perfect gift to send to those who are missing out on the gathering. Retailing for less than $20, the kit includes key ingredients like fresh mascarpone cheese and a chocolate cookie pie crust so that virtual attendees or those missing the celebration can feel as though they are there.
For both party hosts and holiday snackers, the Crave Cheese Sampler gift box retails for under $25 and provides a plethora of Wisconsin cheese classics to make charcuterie boards and snack platters a breeze. With cheddar curds and coils of Farmer’s Rope string cheese, along with two containers of the award winning Crave Brothers’ signature mascarpone as well as fresh marinated mozzarella balls, consumers can’t go wrong with this appetizing option.
Last, but most certainly not least, Crave Brothers is offering a Mascarpone Caramel Sauce with Candied Pecans gift box also priced below $20, and a great option for consumers with a sweet tooth. The box features a recipe card, two containers of Crave’s mascarpone, and one jar of pecans from a retail partner in Madison, Wisconsin. With shoppers switching to at-home cooking and baking, this box will allow all levels of bakers to expand their expertise.
In addition to its new variety of gift boxes, Crave is unveiling an online campaign that features Crave family recipes to inspire the aforementioned chefs and bakers. The recipes, along with the main cheese ingredients, can be found on the company’s website.
The family recipes it will be sharing include:
