Thumbs Up for Casa Italia Christmas Gelati Flavors

Casa Italia Christmas Gelati Flavors

Just in time for the holiday season, you can now indulge on new Casa Italia Christmas gelati flavors. There’s the Salted Egg , Toffee Nut, and Peppermint Mocha. I gave them two thumbs up! Folks at home enjoyed these great treats too! The Salted Egg gelato was quite intriguing. I love it paired with tomatoes as side dish to Filipino dishes, but an Italian gelato? Well, I loved it too! I was surprised how balanced the sweet and salty yolk custard. There’s definitely that Salted Egg flavor alright, but then there’s that creamy flavor that warms the heart. Gelato lovers will also enjoy the Toffee Nut flavor – brown butter and caramelized sugar with toasted almond slivers. It’s a tad sweet for me though, but the bite of almonds gave the ice cream a different character. Experience winter wonderland with Peppermint Mocha gelato. It’s dark chocolate mixed with espresso made ...

​Special Corporate Giveaways for your Christmas Party

Midea Home Appliances are perfect special gifts for your Christmas Party

One of the things that I miss when the yuletide season comes along is the Christmas Party at the office.  Haven’t had that since I started freelancing some 7 years ago. I get to attend parties as a blogger, but somehow I still miss office parties and gatherings. I guess having fun with the people I work with is different. Add to that the gifts that I receive, from my bosses, colleagues, office friends and of course, the corporate giveaways. Well, it’s that time of the year again and the streets are starting to twinkle with Christmas lights and decors. It’s getting colder as well, especially in the evening. I’m already seeing pictures of friends on social media all put together and partying. I’m sure they already received their Christmas bonuses and are looking forward to the holidays. I don’t know about the Christmas bonus and holidays, I won’t have ...
