Nabisco’s seasonal Gotham-targeted cookie, a non-urchin chimney sweeper, Chromalux daylight-simulating lightbulbs, and more hot buys for the winter months.


A Not-So-Tough Cookie
Virtually alone among processed foods, Nabisco’s greatest cookie has an actual season, vanishing in April and reappearing in stores each October. (Transport from the factory in Toronto during summer’s heat poses too much of a threat to the Mallomar’s fragile dark-chocolate shell.) They’re also a very regional taste: 70 percent of the cookies are sold in the greater metropolitan area, with the other 30 in expat-dense places like Miami. Eat seasonal, eat local ($4.59 for eighteen at D’Agostino, 633 Columbus Ave., at 91st St.; 212-362-2692).
