Anna Shea Chocolates:
Pretty As A Picture


These may be the best-looking chocolates Mom has ever seen. Each jewel-like piece is handcrafted and designed to evoke the flavor of the ganache inside.

Cakes Suzette:

Cake O’s Mini Cakes

These adorable 1-1/2" diameter miniature cakes are like round petit-fours. Layers of cake are paired with delectable frostings and then covered with rich Belgian chocolate and hand-decorated with colorful icings. A range of flavors, including classic red velvet, fresh lemon cake and rich chocolate peanut butter, is sure to please any mom with a sweet tooth—and the small size allows her to indulge with overindulging. A big favorite with THE NIBBLE editors.

Sucre Assortis

Chambre De Sucre means “The Sugar Room.” A gorgeous collection of handmade sugar cubes and sugar balls, plain and decorated, white, brown, crystalline and more, these are a “wow” gift, almost too pretty to use. The sugar is the highest quality, and the methods reflect 270 years of artisanship. Anyone who entertains—or who likes beautiful things—will be enchanted by this gift.

Enstrom Candies:
The Best Toffee In America

This is the ultimate buttery toffee—our favorite of the many scores of toffees we’ve tasted. There’s so much butter in Enstrom toffee that the company recommends refrigerating it! We taste a lot of toffee each year, and to us, this is perfection: a magical combination of sweet butter, pure cane sugar and almonds, covered in a generous layer of rich chocolate and sprinkled with crushed almonds. It’s also kosher and available in a sugar-free version that’s just as good as the original. Read our full review of Enstrom’s Toffee, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.

Fancypants Bakery:
Happy Mother’s Day Cookies

Send sweet “Happy Mother’s Day” wishes with this collection of hearts and flowers cookies. Why are Fancypants cookies different from other decorated cookies? These are top-quality shortbread. You can taste the buttery goodness that comes from all natural ingredients, including enriched wheat flour, butter, pure cane sugar, eggs, vanilla and cream of tartar. Coloring is used only in the decorator’s icing, which is also superb—neither cloying nor cement but just right. Read the full review of Fancypants Bakery.

A Honey Of A Selection

These superior flavored honeys from Honey Ridge Farms are blended with fruits or spices. Luscious, yet light on the palate, these honey crèmes are delicious on just about anything: toast, scones, waffles ice cream, or as a cheese condiment. Add some to grilling sauces or marinades, and by all means, sweeten tea or other beverages. Flavors include Apricot, Blackberry, Cranberry, Raspberry and Spiced. Check out the History of Honey.

SerendipiTea:

Chocolate Tea Gift Box

A perfect Mother’s Day gift for a Mom who wants a calorie-free or sugar-free gift, these teas and tisanes really do taste like chocolate. They contain nibs of real chocolate, which don’t add to what is virtually a no-calorie brew. The loose teas are packaged in attractive clear-lid tins and presented in a handsome, wooden display box (both pieces of packaging are reusable). Each tin yields approximately 10 cups of memorably good tea.
