Fruit and nuts from the holidays

Many times people get holiday gifts that they feel compelled to share. We could be cynical and conclude maybe they didn't like the gift but we won't go there.  Well just consider it a re-gift!
Fruit and nuts regifted from the holidays!
Today we had a nice big jar of Wellsley Farm cashews to start with.  Anyone with a BJs Wholesale Club membership knows that Wellsley Farms is their signature line so in truth we had big jar of cashews from BJs.....but that's okay.  They tasted pretty much as you would expect - typical salted cashews.
Good size jar of cashews!
Fancy cashews by Wellsley Farms...aka BJs Wholesale Club
In addition we had a chocolate covered fruit medley from "Dilettante Chocolates".  The definition of dilettante is a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge.  So are these chocolates from a company with an interest in chocolate but not real commitment to or knowledge thereof?  Who's to say?
Dilettante (?) chocolates!
The selection included dried Bing cherries, Strawberries, Blueberries, Royal cherries with acai, and apricots in premium chocolate.  The interesting thing is that you can tell pretty much what each is by the color which begs the questions what kind of chocolate is blue or orange?  
The white are the strawberries the rest you can probably figure out.
The strawberries were covered in white which may have been white chocolate but we are not sure.  For the most part everything tasted fine - though the strawberries may have been the best - but nobody seemed interested in having a real large amount.   It may take awhile for this to go away especially since we have other things lines up.

After two days there will still quite a bit was left.
