New England Pride - Gift Foods? [moved from Boston board]

Cambridge7 | Feb 9, 2007 02:39 PM

I'm always scrambling for gifts to take when I travel, or for guests who come to visit. I find that regional foods are often great gifts. Can you share any ideas you have?

Just to give you an idea, some things which I've done in the past:
Lobsters on ice from Legals and others (great for really $pecial occasion$)
Bag of chowder from Legals (not the prettiest, but very effective)
My Grandma's Coffee Cake (I'm taking a dozen with me this weekend to Los Angeles)
Hood light cream (for amateur coffee drinkers like myself, there's nothing like light cream, which is really hard or impossible to find in many parts of America)

Some of the kinds of food I'm trying to find:
Great blueberry pie or Boston cream pie that can travel
Anything tasty with cranberries
Olde-fashioned chocolates/candies
