Celebrate Father's Day with 1-800-FLOWERS.COM (Review - Giveaway Closed)

How fun is this Cool Golf Bag Cooler full of snacks?  I can't think of a dad who wouldn't be happy to receive this reusable cooler that's packed with snacks as well as golf balls and tees.  Even dads who aren't golfers would probably enjoy the snacks and the cooler!

This is just one of many Father's Day gifts from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM.  The choices include plants, flowers, gift baskets, and other fun items.

When I had a chance to review one of these items, I chose the Cool Golf Bag Cooler because I knew my husband would enjoy it.  I gave it to him as an early Father's Day gift, and we all had fun as he unpacked the contents of the bag.

We haven't tried all of the snacks yet, but this is what I can tell you now:
  • The Pecan Shortbread Cookies are very delicious, with a tender, melt-in-your-mouth consistency.
  • The Peanut Bar is similar to peanut brittle, but with a higher density of peanuts.  My husband, who doesn't especially care for peanut brittle, really enjoyed this.
  • The Praline Pecan Caramels are very chewy.
The cooler seems very durable to me, and I like that it has both a loop strap and a longer shoulder strap.  According to the description, it holds up to six cold drinks.  We'll definitely be using it for day trips.

Thanks to 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, I have the opportunity to give away a $40 gift card to one lucky reader!
