Let's move on to the Nut Butters for Grown-Ups courtesy of Marilyn's Nut Butters which I discovered at Cook, Eat, Drink in New York. They got started a few months ago and are based in Seattle, Washington.

Nut butters  

Marilyn says:

"The sweet and/or savory blends of roasted, high-quality organic nuts and seasonings combine to make perfect  spreads, dips, and marinades for any occasion. Choose from combinations like Cinnamon Walnut Pecan, Spicy-hot Pecan, Hazelnut Walnut Chai, Walnut Cashew, and Hazelnut Almond."

Retail Value $40, Prize Code: UE22

First is Last with Oliver Kita or rather A Box of his Studio Collection.


Call it 16 Creative Sweets in an array of colors and flavors from spicy to sweet and salty and back. 

Don't believe everything David Lebovitz says. I am not "going to come by and feed them to you, one-by-done." As David notes "there's enough chocolates in there so that you shouldn't have trouble finding someone to come over, French or otherwise, and share them with."

It retails for $40, Prize Code is UE17
