Great Gifts For Foodies


Foodies will love our 2010 selection of gourmet food gifts because there’s something for everyone. Sweet or savory products, they’re all special. While some items on this gift list get a bit pricey, others—including caviar!— are as low as $15.00! Need even more suggestions? Check out our other 2010 Holiday Gift Lists or use our gift finder.

Products are listed in alphabetical order. Prices and product availability are verified at publication but are subject to change. These items are offered by a third party and THE NIBBLE has no relationship with them.




Black Truffle Pop It Yourself Kit

One of our Top Picks Of The Week, 479° Popcorn has had a ready-to-eat White Cheddar Truffle Popcorn since we first made its acquaintance. It’s a great flavor, but we were even more thrilled when the company launched its pop-your-own truffle popcorn kit so we could make pure truffle popcorn. Any truffle lover will cherish it. In addition to heirloom organic popcorn, it includes truffled sea salt and a 16.5-ounce can of black truffle oil from another Top Pick Of The Week, La Tourangelle. Read our review of truffle popcorn and our full review of the 479° Popcorn line. Learn all about truffles.
