The company best known for their Adopt-An-Olive Tree program would like to make your Mother’s Day extra special. The new Mamma Mia Gift Box from Nudo is a beautifully designed gift that is filled with a variety of unique products that any mom would love to receive.
Perfect for Mother’s Day, or any special occasion, the Nudo’s Mamma Mia Gift Box has something to bring a bit of joy to each part of mom’s life. It includes:
- One 250ml tin of Nudo’s first cold press extra virgin olive oil
- One box of 12 handmade Italian olive oil chocolates, with ganache fillings in three delightful flavors – mandarin, lemon, and chili oil
- One bar of delicately-scented Honey & Lavender soap, handmade with organic extra-virgin olive oil to moisturize and soothe
Oh my goodness.
This gift box is gorgeous! When I first opened it, I was truly surprised by how beautiful each individual box was. The quality of the exterior peaked my curiosity and excitement about what would be inside each pretty little package!
First off, let me say that I love olive oil, I use it it my cooking quite a bit and up until now, I had thought that most olive oil was basically the same. Wrong! The Nudo 100% extra virgin olive oil is amazing! It really does taste like it is fresh from the tree, very different from the store varieties that I’m used to — it actually tastes like olives and truly is “straight from the grove!” Mmm!
The handmade organic olive oil soap smells wonderful! The scent of lavender is both light and very fragrant at the same time. I haven’t had the chance to try it yet, knowing it is made with organic olive oil and honey with no added chemicals I am sure that it will make my skin feel pampered! I just love the calming scent of lavender and cannot wait to try it!
Last but certainly not least is probably my favorite treat in this Mamma Mia gift box — the chocolates. To be more precise — the handmade Italian olive oil chocolates, Oh my!
You may think that chocolates made with olive oil sounds strange but believe me, it is a match made in Heaven! There are three different flavors in this small box of a dozen: lemon, mandarin and chilli oil. Each one is unique and has its own subtle flavor. Eating these chocolate truffles is like eating a piece of chocolate silk – they melt in your mouth and are so smooth and creamy that I almost can’t describe them! I love them!
Surprisingly, the chilli oil is my favorite. I love the contrast between the smooth truffle and the tiny bit of heat that follows — so good!
Nudo was created in 2005 after Jason Gibb and Cathy Rogers bought and restored 21 acres of abandoned olive grove in Italy’s Le Marche. Their love of the Italian countryside inspired their now famous Adopt an olive tree programme which allows people all over the world to adopt an Italian olive tree and receive its oil.
A love of simple natural food is the starting point for all Nudo products. They are all made from 100% natural, high quality, locally sourced ingredients.
Please take a minute to stop by the Nudo blog – The Dulce Vita Diaries. There you will find some amazing and delicious recipes with gorgeous photographs mixed in with stories from the olive grove in Italy and behind the scenes info. I want to try every. single. recipe. YUM! You may also find the Nudo Facebook and @NudoItalia Twitter page fun and informative places to stay up to date with Nudo’s products and posts.
