Our Albany-Schenectady-Troy food gift baskets pay tribute to the area’s reputation for being the birthplace of several adored American foods. Potato chips were invented by Chef George Crum at the local Moon Lake Lodges restaurant. And pie à la mode was first made fashionable at the Cambridge Hotel in Washington County in the 1890s. For a special birthday surprise, send your local loved ones an Albany-Schenectady-Troy birthday gift basket with some of our popular chocolate flavored potato chips, or our dipped strawberries that can decorate any pie!
Our Albany gift basket delivery service is also a great choice during the winter season. The Capital District is famous for its cold-weather activities such as skiing, snowboarding, ice fishing, tubing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice climbing. For downhill skiers, the Hickory Ski Center in Warren County has the sixth highest vertical drop in the state. And, of course, there’s the popular Maple Ski Ridge in Schenectady County.
You can celebrate the sweetness of maple with our Albany-Schenectady-Troy gift baskets full of Chipotle Maple Sauce, great for seasoning grilled meat. Or, celebrate the softness of powder-white snow with our Handmade Chocolate-Covered Snowman Hats, or Santa Cookie Jar, full of pecan “meltaway” cookie balls that are coated in white powdered sugar. Christmas, after all, owes thanks to the region. The Capital District is where the first written U.S. reference to Santa (“Sinterclaas”) took place in 1675. It is also where ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas was first published in 1823. You can munch on our baked goodies while watching this Christmas classic!
A number of world-wide corporations were founded in the Capital District including American Express, General Electric, American Locomotive Company and International Paper. If you are searching for the perfect present for a boss or coworker at any of these prestigious companies, our gift baskets shipped to Albany, Schenectady, or Troy are sure to satisfy anyone’s snack cravings. For healthy bites, choose our fresh dipped berries or mixed nuts and dried fruit platters. Our gourmet, Executive Decision gift baskets are a great “decision” for celebrating your supervisor or CEO. They come complete with a variety of office treats including cookies, candies, truffles, nuts, crackers, cheeses, smoked salmon, sausage, and even English tea!
