Too much rhyming?

When I think of New Year’s Eve, I think of all the goodies laid out on tables all over the world to satisfy hungry party-goers. Here are a few of my favorite spots to find those delicious morsels.

Cesibon, Naples, Florida

I’m currently in Naples, Florida, with my family for the holidays, and my favorite part of the whole city is the homemade gelato from this little stripmall shop. Let the owners (who are French but studied gelato-making in Italy for years) tell you which two flavors to mix. You may be surprised, but coconut and pinneapple is a heavenly combo!

Find Cesibon at 8807 Tamiami Trail N, Naples, Florida 34108; (239) 566-8363.

Caramelito, Buenos Aires

You can’t even walk inside this tiny store, it’s so packed with nuts, wrapped candies and dried fruits (with the pits still in!). Pick up a little of everything—I like the fig varieties the best—for a good party.

Glup’s, Paris

This French version of Candyland is packed wall to wall with pour-it-yourself sugary treats. You name it, you’ll find it: watermelon sours, licorice ropes and everything in between.

Find a list of Glup’s locations here.
