Old New Orleans Rum Caribbean FruitcakeOld New Orleans Rum Caribbean Fruitcake – $20
Think you know fruitcake? Think again. This freshly made tropical treat features shaved coconut and the sweet caramel-and-nutmeg flavor of Cajun Spice rum, provided by Old New Orleans Louisiana Rum.

Pecan Praline Biscotti – $15
This combination of sweet Southern praline and crunchy Italian biscotti is so spectacular, one of our volunteers tasted them and said, “They’re so good, I don’t even need coffee!” For a New Orleanian to turn down coffee…well, that’s saying something.

Perfect Pumpkin Pup TreatsPerfect Pumpkin Pup Treats – $10
The holidays are a time for family, including furry, four-legged friends. Our blend of pumpkin and cranberry will make them sit up and beg for more-just ask our handsome spokespup, Sebastian!

Marigny Movie Night Holiday Bark – $15
Packed with popcorn, dark chocolate, toffee, and peanuts, this isn’t your grandmother’s holiday bark. It’s like a whole movie theatre concession stand in every bite.

Wayne Jacob's Bacon and Onion JamWayne Jacob’s Bacon & Onion Jam – $10
Our friends at Wayne Jacob’s Smokehouse prepared the bacon for this jam just down the road in LaPlace. Rich and smooth, it goes great on toast, in sandwiches, or anywhere else you need a sweet/savory delight.

Classic Cranberry Preserves – $6
NOCCA students have been making this timeless holiday treat for years, and it remains a tried-and-true favorite. It’s perfect for giving to friends and neighbors, but be sure to keep a jar for yourself, too.
