At Satisfine Foods we’re big believers in supporting our local retailers who bring customer satisfaction to the community and beyond. That’s why for this Valentine’s Day, we’re sharing the love and giving a shout out to three top retailers of ours who are supplying wonderful Valentine’s Day hampers and gift baskets for the day of love.
A Gift Worth Giving have been working with Satisfine Foods for many years. And, with over 20 years of experience in gift giving and personalising loving gestures, they’re an amazing company to work side by side with.
We love their Moet Regency gift basket because it’s perfect for those who enjoy just a little bit of sweet with their savoury. The basket features Moet Chandon, along with Satisfine ordered Brookfarm Walkabout mix and Kez’s gluten-free chocolate chip cookies. The mix - boxed beautifully in a modern black and white packaging - is perfect for a picnic at the end of a quick hike.

For the classic romantic Valentine’s day gift, we’re in love (pardon the pun) with Urban Flower’s long-stemmed roses sets. Urban Flowers have been satisfying Valentine’s since 2001 and are now one of the most respected and established online florists in Australia.
We heart their 1 Dozen Classic Roses package featuring Chocolatier’s chocolates and beautiful, classic reds in a box.

Gourmet Basket know the feeling of having something couriered to you and try to channel that heartwarming experience as much as possible each time they deliver. That’s why we love the Utterly Smitten package for those Valentine’s who want to be spoiled with chocolate and sweetheart candy this year.
Featuring ‘Love Tea’, red Confetti almonds and Byron Bay Cookie’s Signature Luxe Tins with macadamia and white choc cookie bites, this is for the sweet tooth to be opened in a romantic setting.

January is one of the busiest times of the year for Satisfine Foods and the food industry in general. Not only are people stocking up on healthy protein shakes and energy balls in a bid to lose the Holiday weight, they’re also getting ready for Australia day, Valentine’s Day and even Easter on April 1st. In light of the upcoming business ahead we’ve assembled a quick list of our bestsellers you might want to consider for all the different holidays approaching.
The day of beer and meat pies, Australia Day is all about quick, easily grabbable food you can take down to the beach with you or serve at a backyard BBQ. That’s why for Australia day we love to stock up on The Pastry Lounge’s Beef and Guinness pies. It’s a classic, finger food meat pie we can't get enough of.
For the day of love Chocolatiers have outdone themselves. Featuring wrapped bulk heart assortments in all number of colour, they’re the perfect stop and grab treat on the way home for many. For gift box assortments, they’ve created fantastic new packaging for their Pure Indulgence range that’s high end and visually spectacular.
It may seem far off but you can never prepare too early for this beloved holiday. Chocolatier’s have some new delights we’re sure will sell like hot cross buns. The Bikin Bunny rabbit is the perfect option for a little one - not too big or small.
For the adults, Chocolatiers has broadened their range of dark chocolate options which proved popular last year. Choose from the Decadent Dark Egg Selection or the Dark Chocolate Mini Eggs. They’ve also returned the highly popular Fair Trade ‘No Added Sugar’ Egg to the mix, along with fun combinations such as a ‘hatched’ Egg With Freckles. There are so many amazing options to choose from this year.
As hard as it to believe, the festive season has rolled around again. That means it's time to start thinking about the Christmas day and particularly Christmas lunch. Although every family is different, if you want to deliver a simple table spread that’s tried and true, we suggest the following top five table toppers for a meal that's sure to impress.
Every Christmas lunch needs a meat cut and/or a seafood dish as its centrepiece. The good news is, you don't have to get too fancy. Your best bet is to invest in a premium quality ham or turkey and slice it up at the table. On top of that, you can never go wrong with a bucketful of fresh prawns.
Keeping your meat dish simple allows creativity with condiments. Leg ham goes brilliantly with honey mustard — or mayonnaise, which you can make more interesting by adding chilli and lime.
If you’ve got a turkey in the oven, it’s easy. Cranberry and applesauce are the perfect staples. Yarra Valley jams makes a delicious version of both. 100% natural, without any additives, preservatives or artificial colours and flavours, it’s a quality condiment that won’t serve you wrong.
Given that Christmas Day is usually a scorcher in Australia, steer away from hot dishes. Instead, put your time into preparing delicious salads. Everyone loves classics, such as potato salad and coleslaw, but, if you'd like to go for something different, think about fennel and orange or watermelon and mint, which are both refreshing, summertime options.
Once the savoury courses are over, your guests will be ready for dessert. It's Christmas, after all! Mince pies should be on every menu and, to keep everyone happy by meeting their dietary requirements, Kez's Signature Mince Pies are great for gluten, dairy and egg intolerances. For another gluten free option we love Gran's creamy, melt-in-your-mouth gluten-free Chocolate Fudge.
Christmas isn't Christmas without bon bons. There's nothing quite like the fun of competing with a friend or family member, hearing the crack and finding out who won. To make sure every winner scores a tasty prize, grab a packet of Chocolatier Christmas Milk Bauble Bon Bons, which come in festive red, green and gold colours.

Christmas is just around the corner it seems, with tinsel decorations going up, candy canes in window displays, and carols on the radio.

Nutritious and sweet treats available include Brookfarm hampers, Chocolatier’s assortment boxes, and gluten free Silly Yaks mince pies. However, for this blog, we’re focussing on our two stand out favourites for this year: Gran’s Fudge boxes and the Byron Bay Cookie Luxe range. Here’s a little on why we love them both.

Not to mention inside are the delicious, crunchy/soft premium cookies Byron Bay Cookies are known for. All with gluten free options available, these tins are the perfect sophisticated shoppers who’s wanting to celebrate Christmas and the end of 2017 in style.
What’s our favourite of the Luxe range you ask? We’re in love with the gluten free Luxe Assortment Gift Box with White Choc Macadamia and Triple Chocolate (300g). With a magnetic closure and beautiful gold packaging that holds gluten free bites, we think this box is a winner.
What’s more Christmassy than Christmas fudge? Gran’s Fudge has been a consistent bestseller for Satisfine Foods since we welcomed them to our humble little family. With classic flavours such as Peanut Brittle, Choc Fudge, and Irish Cream, these smooth, luxurious bites are from a hand made, gluten free recipe that’s been perfected over 30 years. An Australian owned and operated company, the sheer silky goodness of Gran’s Fudge means these treats are surefire favourites for the holiday period. And their cute, retro-style packaging is just the icing on the cake (or should we say fudge?). Try some today and be blown away with tried and true fudgy deliciousness.
