Gourmet: of or characteristic of a gourmet, especially in involving or purporting to involve high-quality or exotic ingredients and skilled preparation:
I subscribe to a bargain web site email, today the email was all about Easter, the tag line on this exact basket said "Classic Easter Bunny Gourmet Gift Basket" What? Classic definitely, all my fav's Nerds, M&M's Dots, Peeps, gross not Twizzlers, hate Twizzlers, it's Red Vines all the way for me, Jelly Beans a hollow bunny, yay! Sign me up. But wait, none of this stuff is Gourmet, and for $35.00 I can make my own basket and still have money left over for a 5th of whisky. Is this crap what they're passing off as gourmet? All of this stuff is made my machines, there's nothing gourmet here. Where's the chocolate made by Swiss Chocolateers, the hand pulled taffy, the butter cream filled tarts made by children in baking sweat shops? It's just not right.
