THE NIBBLE Gourmet Food Magazine
Launches Gourmet Giveaway Contest
A Weekly Opportunity To Take A Trivia Quiz
And Win Specialty Food



October 22, 2007, New York — THE NIBBLE, the online magazine about specialty food ( and Delightful Deliveries (, one of the premier Internet gift retailers, are about to make lovers of gourmet food very happy.

Beginning today, visitors to will have the opportunity to win a weekly scrumptious food prize in THE NIBBLE’s Gourmet Giveaway™. Depending on the week’s prize—gourmet chocolate, pasta or smoked salmon, for example—entrants simply take a brief, fun trivia quiz about the food category. (For example, Who is credited with introducing pasta to the United States?) Participants don’t even have to answer correctly: Everyone who submits an entry will be eligible for the prize-drawing. The bonus is that everyone will have new-found food knowledge, since the quiz supplies the correct answers.

“Our readers love fine food and can read thousands of articles and reviews in more than 70 food categories on But who wouldn’t like to win gourmet food?” said Karen Hochman, founder of THE NIBBLE. “Delightful Deliveries is the perfect partner for our Gourmet Giveaway: THE NIBBLE reviews products, and they are a retail service that sells many of the types of products we have reviewed.”

The Gourmet Giveaway will give away gourmet cheesecakes, cookies, brownies and chocolates. But it’s not all sweets and snacks: Winners might also snag a hearty dinner-for-two, of, say, filet mignon; or win a succulent smoked ham; a mouth-watering side of smoked salmon; gourmet salsa and barbecue sauce samplers; and other delightful deliveries. The first week’s prize is a pasta gift box: gourmet pastas and sauces for four delicious dinners.

Mark your calendars and head to every week. There may be a Gourmet Giveaway prize in your future…and certainly, there will always be lots of delectable information about fine food. By the way, it was Thomas Jefferson who brought the first pasta—and pasta-making machine—to the U.S. More details are available in the quiz answers, and in the Pasta Section of
