    Promising review: "I needed a way to see the time in the dark without moving, without fussing with the phone, without it taking up space on my small nightstand, and without being fully awake. Several tries later, after trying old-fashioned windup clocks and clocks that cast a light on the ceiling, I found this perfect little gem. Its numbers are large enough to see from the bed; it's small enough to be tucked into the bookcase at a perfect height, and the light of the numbers is adjustable at three levels. It not only looks beautiful; when I find myself searching for a book, I take it out to just feel the smooth wooden surface and wonder, how did they do that? The numbers are sharp, yet seem to just glow out of the wood surface. I would recommend this clock to anyone who wants a simple clock with an unexpected element of joy." —Nelle D'Arlen

    Promising review: "Without a doubt, these are the most delicious biscottis I’ve EVER HAD! Truly the perfect combination of flavor, elegance, texture, etc. What I loved was that it was not so sweet it made you feel horrible afterward. I can’t describe how perfectly balanced it was in flavor and in texture. Usually, biscottis make you feel you are breaking your tooth. What I also loved was there’s a variety of flavor profiles!!! It also falls into categories of cookies, chocolate, etc. So I felt as if I was eating a cookie and a chocolate in a perfect biscotti. Truly amazing! I can’t say enough. I’m only buying the Barnett brand product moving forward for anyone’s birthday, anniversary, or any occasion. Wow, amazing job!!!" —Amazon Customer
