Gifts You Can Feel Good About

Here at THE NIBBLE, we are purveyors of all delicious food, but some of our friends need to keep an eye on what they eat for various health reasons. Fortunately, we have come across items that are both good tasting and good for you. Here are some of our favorites.

Shipping is additional unless indicated. Prices and product availability are verified at publication but are subject to change.


Dean’s Beans:
Custom-Blend Coffee


Dean’s Beans was one of our favorites in our recent review of the best organic coffees. In addition to sending any of their Certified Organic, Fair Trade Coffee to coffee-lovers you know, you can design your own blend and have it custom labeled. It’s a great gift for any time of the year, not to mention party and wedding favors. No minimum order required.

Your own custom label will be placed on a one-pound brown bag similar to the bag in the photo below.

Dean’s Beans:
Java Drops


Dean’s Beans has made the perfect tidbit to go with that cup of coffee: chocolate-covered coffee beans! They’re terrific by themselves, in a candy bowl, or decorating desserts like ice cream (it’s time to retire the maraschino cherry), cakes and cupcakes.

Lake Champlain:
Organic Chocolates


If your chocolate-lover eats organic, they’ve probably tried Dagoba. Now, introduce them to the new line from Lake Champlain. European-smooth and creamy, it’s a very different style from the more rustic Dagoba. Both are wonderful, but variety is the spice of life. This tasting box provides a sampling of all the organic flavors: plain Dark and Milk plus Dark Spicy Aztec and Milk Sea Salt & Almonds.

Lillie Belle Farms:
Lillie Rocks


Organic cocoa nibs coated in organic chocolate and spices provide a most delicious chocolate and antioxidant experience.  The 6-ounce metal tin is resealable to keep these little beauties crunchy and fresh for as long as it takes to eat them. The nibs make great munchies and also can be used to garnish ice cream and other desserts.

The Organic Master Tea Pouch Sampler is a terrific gift for the organic tea connoisseur, this assortment of 108 Tea Pouches™ includes 36 pouches each of 3 different blends: Organic Earl Grey, Organic Hojicha Green Tea and Organic Mint Mélange. That’s almost 4 months of a daily organic, antioxidant burst. Charming silken tea pouches allow the recipient to enjoy the beautiful, whole-leaf tea.
