The holiday season is here! It’s one of our favorite seasons here at Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket because it means indulging in culinary delights is not only encouraged but expected.
This month, we chose a few crowd-pleasing treats from our store that are perfect for giving as gifts, bringing to holiday parties, or serving to friends and family. Discover unique holiday flavors in Ovation Break-A-Parts by Frey, Roka: The Original Cheese Biscuits, and Small Batch Organics Peppermint Bark.
Like most products we carry, these aren’t your ordinary grocery store snacks. Read on to learn more about these specialty holiday picks, and then visit us at our market in Covington, LA, to buy the ones that tempt your tastebuds.
Creme d’Orange Break-A-Parts
The creative presentation of Ovation Break-A-Parts by Frey makes them a great holiday gift or a fun party treat. Each box contains 20 individual chocolates shaped like fruit slices that come packaged as one colorful, foil-wrapped ball resembling an orange or another similar piece of fruit. When you tap the ball on a hard surface, the individual slices break apart so you can easily eat them.
At Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket, we have a special Ovation Break-A-Parts flavor for the holidays: Crème d’ Orange. Each slice has an outer shell of silky milk chocolate with a rich, creamy orange flavor.
These sweet treats are a holiday hit with kids and adults alike, and they’re even Certified Kosher Dairy under the strict supervision of the Orthodox Union. You’ll probably want to pick up more than one of them next time you stop by our store.
Roka: The Original Cheese Biscuits
Dutch patissier Jo Roodenrijs founded Roka in the Netherlands in 1949 to sell his unique cheese crispies. The name “Roka” comes from the combination of the first two letters of his last name (Roodenrijs) and the first two letters of the Dutch word for cheese crispies (Kaastabletten).
Today, the company’s products include original and mini Cheese Crispies, long and mini Cheese Sticks, and Cheese Puffs. These confections are all made from layers of delicate pastry and high-quality cheese, including cheddar, gouda, Emmental, and Parmigiano-Reggiano. The result is a crispy, flaky, cheesy treat that melts on your tongue.
We proudly carry several Roka products at Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket, and any of them would make an elegant and unique holiday treat or gift. If you’re looking for a savory holiday snack or a new way of serving cheese, then Roka products are the way to go. You can eat them alone or pair them with a dip or spread.
Small Batch Organics Peppermint Bark
Small Batch Organics Peppermint Bark is a holiday favorite that’s great for snacking around the tree at home, gifting, or sharing at gatherings. The combination of decadent dark chocolate and all-natural peppermint is the perfect pairing of rich and refreshing.
Chef Lindsay Martin founded Small Batch Organics after she began selling her granola at a small farm stand in Peru, Vermont. Now, the company still organically makes its treats in Vermont with simple, high-quality ingredients sourced from small, organic farms and artisan food producers.
The company is transparent about everything that goes into its products and where it comes from, so you can feel good about putting this holiday treat in your basket next time you’re at Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket. The Peppermint Bark ingredients include:
- 60% dark chocolate from Guittard Fairtrade
- Almonds from Burroughs Family Farm
- Brown Rice Flour from Firebird Artisan Mills
- Gluten-free oats from La Crosse Milling
- Vermont Maple Syrup from Beebe Family Sugarbush
- All-natural peppermint chips from Wholesome Organic
Next time you’re out holiday shopping, consider adding Small Batch Organics Peppermint Bark, Ovation Break-A-Parts by Frey, or Roka to your list.
