Have you ever been to the Caribbean? I haven't, but I sure have dreamed about being there while sitting on the Florida beaches. Growing up in Florida, I have experienced a lot of Caribbean type things or so I thought. I have seen the lovely gold boxes of Tortuga products in shops in Florida, but I guess my mom thought I was too young for anything with rum.

I’ve just tried Tortuga Caribbean rum cakes, and I am so shocked by how different and utterly fantastic it is compared to other rum cakes that I remember. The first I sampled was the original flavor which had a distinct rum flavor that was so delightful. The cake is moist and absolutely delicious. You can tell it is made with the best ingredients like Tortuga gold rum. I think it is awesome that each cake is hand glazed and then vacuum sealed to lock in the love and flavor!

I also tried the banana flavor rum cake, which is made with the same great care and superb ingredients as their other cakes. I can’t express how unique and delicious this was. The banana added a nice subtle change to the original flavor, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the other flavor varieties.

Tortuga 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee goes perfectly with their rum cakes. It has a unique aroma  and a beautiful smooth rich flavor. I can easily see why it is one of the most sought after coffees in the world. I can slowly sip on a cup and be taken away from this cold Kansas winter right back to my youth and the beach days.
In addition to the wonderful products I’ve been telling about they also offer rum fudge, truffles, cooking sauces, pepper jelly, and a marvelous selection of gift baskets perfect for all occasions. Please take some time and browse their site to see how you can bring the taste of the Caribbean home!
