Tortuga Rum Company is a family-owned business that has been around for over 25 years. I received three of their 4 oz rum cakes: Original Golden, Chocolate, and Coconut, plus a bag of Tortuga Rum Cream Gourmet Coffee. The 4 oz cakes are single servings but I decided to share them with my husband. While I've been a member of the Sweet Tooth Club my whole life, hubby is not a dessert person. He would be hard pressed to eat a bite of cake even at special occasions, so I figured offering to share some rum cake was a safe bet for me. Actually, the only thing that convinced him to try some was the word "rum".
Well, it turned out I should not have been so generous because my husband loved the rum cakes! He made me open all three to "try". They were gone within minutes! The rum cakes are delicious, moist and flavorful. There are walnuts in the Original Golden cake that add just the right amount of nuttiness. The Coconut Rum Cake has yummy coconut, and the Chocolate is heaven for the chocolate addict - that would be me. The rum cakes are vacuum-packed and can last up to 9 months - or longer if frozen. Hmmm, there is no way these will ever see the inside of my freezer!
These cakes would make much appreciated gifts, and you'd better put them on your Christmas shopping list right now. The cakes come in 3 sizes and 9 flavors, and while I have not tried them all, I bet they are as tasty as the ones I sampled.
The Tortuga Rum Cream Gourmet Coffee fills my house with delectable aromas first thing in the morning. I like my coffee with tons of milk but no sugar, and this coffee tastes oh so good! The coffee is ground, comes in an 8 oz bag, and you can choose among 7 flavors. But why choose? Get the Tortuga Gourmet Coffee Assorted 7 Pack, and try them all!
In addition to these amazing cakes and coffee, Tortuga Rum Company has a wonderful selection of gifts and rum treats - Tortuga Chocolate Hazelnut Rum Truffles, anyone? Rum fudge? Gourmet gift baskets? Write these down because I just gave you some awesome gift ideas. And they ship worldwide.
