ULTIMATE TASTE TEST 2.0 RATING: 3.4 out of 5.0
"I love the Pesto Sundried Tomatoes, that was just awesome!"
There are numerous dips, spreads, and sauces out there, but Tin Gonzalez' Gourmet Spreads is ahead with 7 variants already, namely, Boursin (creamy garlic cheese), Three-Cheese Pesto, Pesto with Sundried Tomatoes, Creamy Spinach, Chicken Liver Pate, Spicy Sardine Pate, and Spicy Gourmet Tuyo Flakes. My favorite is the Three-Cheese Pesto, while other foodies liked the Pesto with Sundried Tomatoes. Some people argued that we already have a lot of these kinds of dips in the market with almost the same variants.
The Gourmet Spreads are good, though. You should try them if you are looking for one...
I've always had the passion for food—experimenting and cooking up favorites for family and friends, discovering dining spots and trying out new dishes. So finally, in November 2007, I decided to quit my job at a PR & Events agency and started Gourmet Stuffers. It is a home-based business that whips up a variety of gourmet dips, spreads, sauces and desserts.
Back in college, to earn extra cash, I just sold "Boursin" (garlic cheese)--an old family recipe--so now my friends would often tag this as my signature dip. When I decided to quit my job and go into the food business, I had to concoct/experiment on different variants so I came up with a few. I also made the rounds of taste-tests and sampling among friends and former officemates. Fortunately, the feedback was very encouraging, so I decided to continue with the business. I also joined bazaars to help introduce my products to the public.
To date, I have seven variants (Boursin - creamy garlic cheese, Three-Cheese Pesto, Pesto with Sundried Tomatoes, Creamy Spinach, Chicken Liver Pate, Spicy Sardine Pate & Spicy gourmet tuyo flakes). I also have desserts--Chocolate truffles (Champagne, Almond & Oreo-Mint), Choco peanut butter cups, Mint-Choco Mallows and Turtle Chocolate candies.
