Spring water in an award-winning Art Deco bottle, Aquadeco comes from a Canadian aquifer. The water was created 18,000 years ago during the last Ice Age. The water itself has a low minerality and just a hint of sweetness. The glass bottles are blown by a company in Slovenia that has been producing clear glass for more than 600 years. But the real reason to buy this water is that the large size looks like an award or trophy, and has an optional stand that lights up the bottle from beneath (special order). When you’re dieting and drinking lots of water, you need some razzle-dazzle.

Ethically sourced from mines in the foothills of the Himalayas, this salt comes with many claims, including anti-aging, mental clarity, better moods, purification and detoxification. But the reason we’re suggesting it here, is because people on calorie-reduced diets deserve the best seasonings they can get. Once you taste this, you’ll never go back to supermarket salt. (By the way, iodized salt is no longer necessary in our modern diets.) Certified kosher.

Sugar-Free Almond Bark
This bark is made with top-quality sugar-free chocolate and crunchy whole almonds and sweetened with maltitol, the costliest and most natural of the sugar substitutes. Not a low-calorie food, but for those who must restrict their sugar intake.
Each can of sweet, jumbo lump crabmeat makes one delicious meal—in a crab cocktail, on a bed of salad greens or in a crab “wrap” with lettuce or blanched bok choy. The crab is so delicious, it needs no dressing. Almost pure protein, a 6.5-ounce can, a satisfying portion, has just 120 calories per can, 10 calories from fat. Read our full review.

One of the favorite foods we have ever reviewed for THE NIBBLE, we can never get enough of Willapa oysters, harvested to order from a small grower in the cleanest estuary in America. If you like oysters, the meatiness and flavor of these will be an eye-opening experience. If we could only have them every day, we’d be skinny in no time (six medium oysters have 47 calories, and these are so good, they need no cocktail sauce). Read our full review of this NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.
