Plush Puffs Marshmallows

To celebrate National Toasted Marshmallow Day (August 30), we toasted up a Chocolate Chipetta Marshmallow from Plush Puffs—that’s right, a chocolate marshmallow with mini chocolate chips—and made a deluxe S’more by sandwiching it between LU’s Little Schoolboy tea biscuits, the ones topped with chocolate bars. They’re so good, we’ll continue the celebration through Labor Day Weekend!

product of the week

Sizzling Salsa

So many salsas, so little time! That’s why we spend the time for you, tasting hundreds of salsas each year to recommend the ones that stand out. Here are three very different salsas, from El Gringo Logo (lots of chunky vegetables), Green Mountain Gringo (piquant with apple cider vinegar) and Mrs. Renfro’s (very smooth and sauce-like, great for cooking as well as dipping). Red salsa, while most familiar to Americans, is just one of dozens of different types of salsa. Check out the salsa universe in our Salsa Glossary.

In addition to this monthly online magazine, we e-mail our Top Food Pick Of The Week newsletter to opt-in subscribers. If you don’t already receive it, click here to have it delivered directly to your e-mailbox. Of the thousands of specialty foods we taste each year, these 52 weekly recommendations are our favorites for both home use and gift-giving. You won’t want to miss them!

THE NIBBLE does not sell the foods we review

Our recommendations are based purely on our opinion, after tasting thousands of products each year, that they represent the best in their respective categories.
