Paradise For Your Taste Buds - Holiday Gift Guide

I received the below mentioned products free for the purpose of review, all views and opinions are my own honest evaluations. 
Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. See Disclosure. Happy Holidays! 
The next stop on our Holiday Gift Guide will take our taste buds on a trip to the Caribbean. If your pallet seeks out the finer tastes in desserts then you're in luck we've shipwrecked onto a taste adventure for your tongue. I was delighted to have the opportunity to try two of the Carribean Rum Cakes from Tortuga. I remembered the first time I ever tasted a rum cake was on my twenty-first birthday with my husband's family. At first I remember being a bit disgusted taking my first bite and I wondered why someone would want wet cake, but now as my taste buds have evolved I seem to crave the richer flavors.

Rich delicious moist cake yes - Tortuga does it right. I tried the original as soon as our package arrived I couldn't wait to try it. It was vacuum sealed inside the package in a hexagon box and sealed on the outside locking in the moisture. My fork sunk in and I could feel my mouth watering for that first bite, it was delicious!
Positively rating among the top three or perhaps the best cake I've ever tasted. There's very few times I would rave on and one about how good a cake tastes but this cake really deserves it. The rich flavor of the imported walnuts compliment the smooth sweetness of the five year old aged Tortuga Gold Rum. 

We were also able to try the Tortuga Jamaican Blue Mountain roasted coffee in whole bean. My husband enjoys grinding the whole beans in our electric grinder and the freshly ground coffee really has no comparison to pre-packaged coffees in my opinion. We found this roast to be smooth and mild a perfect match for their delicious cake. There are many nights where my husband and I brew coffee as a dessert so Tortuga gives us that sweet rich flavor on the plate or in our cup!
