Hello! This is such a great small gift idea! I was looking for a small gift idea for the college kids in my family and I think they would really enjoy this. I just want to point out that under the description of cocoa powder, it talks about pears and under the description of sugar it talks about baby arugula. Thank you for the gift idea!
