If you’re anything like me, the notion of hampers immediately conjures up images of sugar. Chocolate, sugar-coated nuts, shortbread cookies, jams and other condiments…the list is endless. Enough to give you diabetes, really. But not everyone is a sweet tooth! We know, it’s hard to believe. The savour tooths among us may be as rare as a unicorn sighting, but they’re out there. So what do you do if you need to gift someone something that is entirely devoid of chocolate? You consult our savoury collection, that’s what you do! We’ve got as many options as there are grains of salt in a salt shaker. Ok, that might be a stretch..

When the word ‘salt’ is in the name, you know you are on to a savoury classic! Salty Simon delivers on all accounts. With contents that include L’Abruzzese Squid Ink Spaghetti, Bomb Ass Chilli Oil and Olsson’s X Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin Salt, there will be no sodium deficiencies for the recipient of this hamper!
Foodie Frank has got all bases covered; a guaranteed heart attack and diabetes diagnosis in one! Here’s the breakdown: Mount Zero Olive Oil, Olsson’s X Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin Salt, L’Abruzzese Squid Ink Spaghetti, Good Day Chocolate, Misty’s Salted Caramel, and Bomb Ass Chilli Oil. Worth the health repercussions, we say.
Hunky Hank gets all his gains through salt consumption. That’s probably not how that works, but who’s arguing with us? However the gains are acquired, we reckon our savoury food hampers probably have something to do with it. His contents include two Taylor & Smith cocktails, Wondaree Macadamias, and Fleurieu Olives.
Bellissimo Belinda is as good as sitting cliff-side at Posetano, plate of burrata in front of you and aperol spritz accompanying it. Will only cost you a fraction of the price too, we checked (it wasn’t hard). She is every carb-lovers’ dream, with a bottle of Prosecco or red wine, L’Abruzesse Squid Ink Spaghetti, Bippi Italian Chilli, Mount Zero Olives, and Messina Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (cause you’ve gotta counter-balance all that salt).
For those who enjoy a more well-rounded assortment of food, we’ve got a selection of hampers to appeal to their pallets too!
Here are a few:
Gourmet Greg is gonna hit the spot with contents that include Minimum wine (red or white of your choosing), Drunken Sailor Beetroot and Gin Relish, Olsson’s X Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin Salt, Bramble & Hedge Chai, Wild Fig and Raspberry Nougat, and Maya Sunny Honey: Macadamia Crunch.
Dependable Dave also comes to the table for all palettes (he’s dependable like that). His contents include a coupl’a tinnies (four to be exact), Bahen & Co Guatemala Chocolate, Fleurieu Olives, Nuts-About Garlic and Rosemary Cashews, and Falwasser Natural Charcoal Crispbread. No need to pick a team - he covers both!
Yankee Frankie has gone super-sized in all sweet and savoury options! His contents include Kings County Distillery Straight Bourbon Whisky, Tiger Buck Beef Jerky, Jerk-style Roasted Nut Mix, Fluffe Fairy Floss, Good Day Chocolate, and Huff & Puff Pork Crackle.
