Pumpkin Figs

Fragile calabacita figs from Spain are filled with a delectable whiskey clove ganache, then dipped them in a thin layer of white chocolate tinted a perfect shade of pumpkin. Made by JohnAndKiras.com, these Fig “Pumpkin" Bonbons are sure to delight.

Food tip of the day

Truffle Peelings

If you’re jonesing for the heady aroma and taste of black truffles but going out for a plate of truffled pasta isn’t an affordable fix, look for a jar of truffle peelings and make your own special dinner entrée or first course. Toss angel hair pasta with unsalted butter and the peelings—and use one of your nicest plates. A substantive red wine is a perfect companion. You also can use the peelings in sauces, scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes and as garnishes. Be careful—it could really become a habit!

The magazine about specialty foods And
the gourmet life

Prior issues
Most frequently read articles


October is a “restful” month between the “back-to-school” and holiday rush periods. But it’s also Fall Harvest season ... and an opportunity to eat a lot of gourmet Halloween Candy (see the Table of Contents below).

For a special treat, to celebrate National Popcorn Month, Dale and Thomas is offering two bags of their delicious chocolate- or cinnamon-coated popcorn FREE. It’s no trick—just pay $2.95 per bag for shipping and handling. Enjoy it yourself, or share with a friend (including kosher friends). Available at DaleAndThomas.com through the end of the month.

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
or receive fees from manufacturers for recommending them.

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