The magazine about specialty foods And
the gourmet life

january 2007 Table of contents
Prior issues
Most frequently read articles


January is “healthy food month” at THE NIBBLE. We’ve enjoyed our holiday excesses, and we’re being good until the Valentine candy arrives. Fortunately, there are plenty of specialty foods that are low-calorie and delicious, as you’ll see in the Table of Contents below. (Of if you want to indulge, head over to Main Nibbles and browse your favorite food categories.)

If you need something healthy to celebrate, January is National Egg Month, National Hot Tea Month, National Meat Month, National Oatmeal Month, National Soup Month and National Wheat Bread Month. Sounds pretty nutritious so we’ll ignore that it’s also National Candy 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.
