Sweet Gourmet Gifts

 

Bentley’s Popcorn:
Butter Pecan, Cinnamon Almond
& Toffee Caramel

 

This excellent toffee-covered popcorn makes any day a holiday, and is a most wonderful gift for anyone. Packaged in individual 1.5-ounce bags for crispness, the serving also helps with portion control—although after that first bite of seductive goodness, one portion may seem like three bags (which is how many we ate). The bags are sent in reusable gold tins. The toffee coating has such finesse and is so satisfying, even to adults, that it can double as dessert—especially on top of ice cream. Toffee Caramel is the Butter Pecan without the nuts.

  • Gift Tins
    12 To 66 Bags
    $29.95 To $99.95

Chocolate Inspirations:
Cinnamon Toast Toffee


This Chicago chocolatier makes Cinnamon Toast Toffee by infusing their regular toffee with cinnamon, coating it with milk chocolate and adding sparkly cinnamon sugar to the top. A visual treat as well as a treat for the palate. The milk chocolate is from Felchlin of Switzerland, one of the finest chocolates in the world.

Gilda's Biscotti:
Biscotti In Seven Flavors


Biscotti are popular as a dipper with coffee, as a cruncher along with a soft spoon of ice cream and as an anytime snack. Gilda’s Biscotti makes a harder, traditional style of biscotti, using only wholesome ingredients, hand cutting each one and baking it in small batches. The flavor combinations are classic too—Chocolate Espresso, Cherry Pistachio, Candied Orange and Almond, Chocolate Hazelnut, Almond Anise, Vanilla Bean and Lemon Fig. There’s even a special Dad’s Midnight Stash, an assortment of everything, preferred by Gilda’s dad. Give yours this history of biscotti along with a few bags.

Paumanok Preserves:
Onion Conserve & More

 

On the North Shore of Long Island, down the road apiece from the tony Hamptons crowd, Paumanok Preserves makes small-batch jams, jellies and relishes from seasonal fruits and vegetables in a certified farm kitchen. The offering is so large and tempting, you may not know where to begin. Here’s a suggestion: Get the Incredible Onion Conserve, caramelized sweet onions with caraway seeds, along with the Gracious Garlic Gelée. Dad will flip over them, and you’ll know exactly what he wants for birthdays and other holidays.  What to do with them? Biscuits, meat, fish and cheese condiment and oh yes—spoon it from the jar because they are both incredible. The Farmhouse Salsa is also a must-try: yellow tomatoes and fresh garlic that bypass the chip and go straight to chicken and fish. Superb!

  • 12-Ounce Jar
    $8.50
  • Case Of 12 Jars
    $96.00
