More and more businesses are hosting holiday parties after the traditional Christmas season and the holiday season is now going well beyond the New Year.  G.B. Russo has the perfect gift for your upcoming holiday gathering whether it’s for work or play.

Sweet (and Salty) Treats

G.B. Russo has a variety of sweets from Grand Rapids all the way to Italy. Whether you’re shopping for someone who loves chocolate and sugared candies, or prefers salty snacks; we have you covered. Check out our display of G.B. Russo packaged snacks for a wide variety of chocolate covered nuts or pretzels, sugared and dried fruits, mixed nuts, and our unique array of specialty items. You’ll be sure to find the perfect indulgence!

Looking for something fresh and homemade? Pick up some of our famous homemade cannoli. While we can’t share the recipe for the cannoli filing – it’s a family secret – we love to share the finished product! For a fun and festive treat, you can purchase all the fixings for our special babbo natale cookies as well.

Dipping Delight

A go-to gift is an olive oil and balsamic vinegar pairing. We have a great selection of olive oils to dip or use in your favorite recipe. Some of our favorite olive oils include Bella Famiglia Grapeseed Oil, Mantova Golden Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or G. B. Russo’s Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It’s buttery with a slightly peppery taste and is unfiltered from the Abruzzo region of Italy. Not to mention, it’s our best seller! Be sure to try Blis 9 Sherry Vinegar (we also recommend their soy sauce for an Asian-style meal or maple syrup to with your pancakes in the morning), Romantica Balsamic Vinegar or the Acetum Balsamic Glaze. Perfect with a fresh Italian loaf from our bakery!

Visit our deli section for mouth-watering dips, including spinach dip, beet hummus, and caviar for a special treat. One of our customer favorites are G.B. Russo’s  Dipping Herbs. You can add these to any dip or top your favorite pizza, salad, or pasta. You can also try G.B. Russo Sizzling Peach Salsa and Spicy Guacamole Starter to kick your holiday fiesta up a notch!
