Gifts & Favors

gifts and favors on the East End A few greenbacks in a plain envelope is always appreciated, but a truly meaningful, and memorable, item specially selected for the guest of honor is much more elegant gift to bring to the wedding, or other special occasion.

And, don't forget the people who have helped you plan your special day. Show your appreciation with a trinket selected especially for them. Their labor of love will be that much sweeter when they can remember you by your special present.

It'll Be Brittle peanut, cashew and pecan brittlesWhen you want to send your guests home with a little something sweet, a gourmet nut brittle from It’ll Be Brittle is a delightful choice. These small batch artisan peanut, cashew and pecan brittles are a salty-sweet taste of heaven, and your guests will love you for thinking of it. In a sea of specialty chocolates, honeypots, monogrammed candle tins, paper fans and other cute, but tired, party favors, peanut brittle is fresh taste that everyone will enjoy. And it won’t break the bank, no matter how large your guest list.

Make no mistake, the brittles produced by Diane and her It’ll Be Brittle team are far superior to the mass-produced candies found at your local supermarket. The gourmet confections from It’ll Be Brittle are made in small batches, with tried and true home style recipes made from your choice of peanuts, cashews or pecans. Creating nut brittle as melt-in-your-mouth delicious as those from this kitchen is not easy, but when you see the just-right amber color and taste the crunchy salty goodness, you know you have found the work of not only an expert candy maker, but an artist as well.

So, be it a gift for someone special, or a parting favor that stands apart from the crowd, make it a sweet treat from It’ll Be Brittle—and plan to get some extra so you can treat yourself too.

North Fork Potato Chips

Mattituck, New York
(631) 298-8631
www.northforkchips.com

Before there were grapevines in the fields of the North Fork, there were potatoes as far as the eye could see, so if you really want to share a taste of the North Fork with your guests and family and friends, then include a sample of North Fork Potato Chips with your favors and gift bags for your out of town guests.

What we love about North Fork Potato Chips is that not only are they made from locally grown North Fork potatoes, they are simply delish! In fact they are so good that even foodie icon Rachael Ray has helped spread the love.

North Fork Potato Chips are kettle chips, making them a bit thicker and crispier than standard supermarket snack aisle fare. And their flavors are extra special too. Of course you will find the original flavor, salt and vinegar and barbeque with a bit of a sweet kick, but then the selections take the road less traveled on the North Fork--sweet potato, cheddar & onion, sour cream & onion, and by special request of the wineries, rosemary and garlic, which makes a delicious pairing with North Fork wines. Regardless of your selected flavor—you will want to try them all and be warned they are quite addictive! Believe us when we say that even your sweets fans will find themselves craving North Fork Potato Chips.

The Sidor family has generations of potato farming experience behind them, and now they bring their special recipe to us all--especially brides. Carol Sidor and daughter Cheryl profess to love working with brides, and are delighted for the chance to make your wedding celebration special and unique with a true North Fork specialty.

If you haven't tried North Fork Potato Chips, you are missing a real treat, and so are your guests. So give them a try and make plans to include them in your celebration. Call or email today and reserve a few cases.
