zingerman’s care packages!

A good friend of mine is from Ann Arbor, Michigan and for each special occasion, she loves to send me care packages from Zingerman’s®.  An establishment well known to all who been to Ann Arbor, their shops have everything from baked goods to cheeses to coffee.  They even do catering and international food tours!

When I first moved into my new home, my friend sent me a box of bread.  Being in California, the freshness didn’t last so long but it all made for good toast.  Recently, she sent me a box of their gelato:

Such a creative way to send something special to a friend.  And good advertsisement too – makes me want to go to Ann Arbor!
