For a yummy treat with a unique and decadent flavor, the milk chocolate-covered fruit cake squares are a must! Trust me, even if you’re not a fruitcake fan (and I know there are many of you out there) these are very likely to convert you! Available for $38.95 for a tin of 18.
Their recipe dates back to 1917 and has been a beloved tradition ever since. The handmade goodness was first introduced by two German brothers, who discovered a family fruitcake recipe in their grandmother’s cookbook. The recipe took off, and the Lantz brothers soon found themselves searching for a bigger facility to produce their grandmother’s recipe. In 1964, their search took them to Beatrice, Nebraska, and the current facility.
The Nebraska bakery changed names and ownership several times before becoming nationally known as Beatrice Bakery Co in 2002. Despite the changes, the original fruitcake recipe remained the same.
But even if you don’t want to commit to the fruitcake, they have plenty of other yummy options, such as their premium Chocolate Rum Ring is packed with a premium blend of cocoa and dark rum. The additional injection process makes this liqueur cake a, for sure powerhouse! 6-ounce ring box Serving: 6-10 $18.36

Move over table salt. Spiceology’s Luxe Infused Salt Variety Pack transcends the usual, inviting you into a world of gourmet seasoning with flavors that are both distinct and memorable.
The Craft Behind Flavored Salts
Making homemade flavored salts isn’t just about combining ingredients; it’s an art. By using a combination of herbs, citrus zest, and other gourmet ingredients, Spiceology crafts a palette of infused salts that effortlessly elevate any dish.
Have you ever tried making flavored salts at home? Perhaps on a baking sheet, experimenting with various flavor combinations? It’s a delicious idea. Yet, it demands precision and patience. We’ve done the heavy lifting for you, ensuring each grain of salt is perfectly infused.
Why Our Luxe Infused Salts Stand Out
While many are familiar with coarse salt varieties like maldon salt or rosemary salt, Spiceology is bringing you six different and innovative flavor infusions. . Each salt in our variety pack offers a unique flavor profile. From the warmth of smoked paprika to the earthy notes of thyme, there’s a flavor for every culinary enthusiast.
And for those who seek the pop of peppers, our Jalapeño salt, made from the finest jalapeno powder, offers just the right amount of heat. Yet it’s not just about the spice. With our Luxe pack, you can experience the rich aroma of Black Truffle or the boldness of Ground Espresso.
Don’t settle for the monotony of regular table salt when the world of flavored salts is waiting. And while many are content with just citrus or herb infusions, Spiceology wants you to experiment with new flavors.
A Perfect Gift for the Culinary Enthusiast
Considering flavored salts as a gift? Whether you’re gifting it to a seasoned chef or a home cook eager to experiment, our Luxe Infused Salt Variety Pack offers an array of delicious flavor combinations. Every pinch from our Luxe Infused Salt pack promises an experience, whether you’re seasoning a steak, sprinkling over a salad, or experimenting with mixology. So, venture beyond the known and taste the magic of expertly crafted infused salts.
So if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the boujee foodie partner, look no further than Spiceology’s Luxe Infused Salt Variety Pack. With flavors from Jalapeno to Black Truffle, these salts will spice up any Valentine’s Day dinner or cocktails!
YI 2K Dome 360 Degree Smart Home Security Camera
This YI 2K Dome 360 degree security camera features 2304 x 1296 resolution, for clarity at every angle. 2K resolution makes a huge difference over HD in indoor use. Of particular note is the very good Enhanced Night Vision which, when activated, enables 8500-nm infrared lights, a high-sensitivity image sensor and an F1.9 large aperture lens. This excellent feature captures detailed images even in very low-light conditions.
This cool little camera also swivels to capture complete coverage of your home with 355° degree horizontal and 84° degree vertical rotation, resulting in virtually zero blind spots. When motion is detected the camera automatically tracks and follows the moving object recording most of the action in the room. With the built-in microphone and speaker, you can also hear the sound from the scene and speak with people on the camera side.
It is important to note that this product is sold in the anticipation you will sign up to their Kami Cloud subscription plan – full details here – which as well as storing your security footing off-site in the cloud, enables their Smart AI Detection system which can distinguish Person, Vehicle, or Animal accurately and reduce false alarms significantly. Kami Cloud offers loop recording with no storage limit, so even if your YI Home Camera is stolen or damaged, your footage will still be secure and accessible on the cloud. Download the YI Home App PC/Mac client and view up to 4 live camera feeds on one screen, wherever you are.
If you don’t want the subscription this is still a very usable device and you can store your data and recordings locally with an extra Micro SD card (not included). Please note, the Micro SD card must be formatted as FAT32. Accessing the SD card remotely via the Yi Home app on your iPhone or Android device is a cinch and the motion detection alerts work very well. You can also use the app to schedule the camera’s actions and set Home or Away presets.
Keep track of what’s happening in every room of your house or small business, and rest assured that you won’t miss anything. It is important to point out that the YI 2K Dome camera is only compatible with a 2.4GHz band network, 5GHz networks are not supported.
This camera is also compatible With Alexa and Google Assistant. You can use your voice to turn on YI camera for home security or view your camera live stream on Echo Show or any screen-based Alexa device or Google Chrome Cast. This is not a battery-powered camera so it can only be placed around the home within reach of a power socket but the included micro USB power cable is pretty long. If you don’t want to put a Micro SD in your camera you can try Kami Cloud on a one-month free trial accessed via the app once you set up a new Yi device.
Available at the time of publishing on Amazon.com for a reduced $28.99.
