Nutella Imported from Italy

Nutella has become a staple among American families, who can find the hazelnut spread at their local grocery stores, chain stores, even warehouse clubs. The version that is widely available in the US though, comes in a plastic jar and is made in Canada. For your Nutella aficionado, the one who eats it by the spoonful, treat them to the real thing. The authentic Italian recipe, bottled in a glass jar, is available at Italian specialty stores around the county such as A&S Fine Foods in Port Chester and Croton-on-Hudson.

Olive Oil and Vinegar

The Twisted Branch in Valhalla is an excellent spot to taste and buy fine olive oils and vinegars from around the world. The olive oils are infused offsite, until the flavor is just right, and then are bottled at the Valhalla location. The selection seems endless and a variety of sizes are offered so the pricing ranges from $6.95 to $49.95 per bottle. For the indecisive, an adorable gift box is available for $35 with three small olive oils and three vinegars.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Move over, Nestle Cut-and-Bake cookies. Beascakes in Armonk makes the biggest chocolate chip cookie in Westchester and lucky for us, the bakery sells the dough frozen so that customers could enjoy their warm cookies from the comfort of their own kitchen. For the cookie lover who doesn’t like to bake, this seems like the best of all worlds.
