Special occasions demand special, seasonal foods no matter what the celebration.

From figs and pomegranates to clementines and sweet limes, grocery stores and specialty food shops in Waterloo region are now stocked with unique treats.

At this time of the year, Vincenzo’s in Waterloo sources special olive oil — a larder item many people already stock — for the holiday season, vice-president Carmine Caccioppoli said.

“For the last 15 years or so, we’ve brought over a Spanish olive oil. It’s beautiful. Very fruity and almost a buttery type of oil,” Caccioppoli said.

They also stock the crisp “pyramid” of pastry showered with icing sugar, Cristoli, along with the traditional crown-like, dome-shaped “big bread,” panettone.
