Is there anything better than a candy or snack that reminds you of your childhood?   When you give someone a treat that reminds them of their early days or their home it becomes more than just a gift.  It becomes a feeling of nostalgia.  What you are really giving them is the gift of a memory, of a feeling of being back at home or going back in time.  And you can’t put a price on that.

Our home and our food are intertwined in our memories.  There are scientific studies that show the same parts of the brain are responsible for encoding taste memory and the time and place we experience the tastes.  We associate these directly and when we re-experience these tastes we re-experience these memories.

This gives new meaning to the phrase ‘you are what you eat’.  We are a product of our past.  Our childhood, our upbringing, and our homes have a deep connection to who we are.  When we eat these snacks, they bring us back to an experience of where we came from and who we are.

As an Australian who has lived overseas, I was always so proud of my roots and whenever I could I always enjoyed connecting back to them.  Australian food does this for me.  And it is true that you can take the Australian out of Australia, but you can’t take Australia out of the Australian.  When I see a Tim Tam I am reminded of all the things that make me proud to be Australian.

For the Aussie Battler

If you know an Aussie battler who’s invited you around for a Barbie at their place, what better gift could there be than a Treats from Home Gift Box. 

If you want to make a big impression you could go with the 29 unit snack box.  This is a crowd pleasure and contains 29 different hand-picked Aussie Snacks.  You’ve got classic biscuits like Tim Tams and Tiny Teddies, as well as an assortment of crisps like Twisties.  You also get a bunch of great chocolates including Caramello’s & Freddo’s.  We’ve thrown in some vegemite as well!

If you’re looking for something slightly smaller, the 16 pack snack box is also a great option.  This pack has some different options to the 29 box and will still be a really great crowd-pleaser. 

For those of us who are Tim Tam lovers, you can’t look past our 4-pack Tim Tam box.  With this option, you get a selection of the 4 most popular Tim Tam flavors:  Original, Caramel, Dark Chocolate & White Chocolate. 

For the Boykie Back Home

If one of your Boykies from the Cape is firing up the braai for his birthday, don’t go empty-handed.  Take him a lekker South  African Snack box.

We have the best selling 26 unit box.  This contains South African favorites like Simba chips, Ouma rusks, Jelly Tots and Bar Ones:

We’d also recommend taking a look at the South African Cadbury Box.  Cadbury has a unique taste in South Africa and this box comes with 12 delicious Cadbury bars imported from South Africa: 

When a Snack is more than just a Snack

A gift can be more than just a gift when it provides the recipient with an experience that elevates them.  What could be better than reminding a friend or loved one of home and bringing back great memories.  

Our snacks are hand-packed overseas and imported fresh.  They are an excellent gift and will be loved as a treat.  Give your friends a Treat from Home.
