Food/Chow as NYC Souvenir

Any suggestions for items unique to NY that is non-perishable or at least will travel well (not spoil, go stale, or fall apart within a couple of days) for out of town guests to bring back to CA as gifts?

I'm drawing a blank. Thanks.

      I don't know that I'd bring Long Island wine back to California, especially as a gift from New York City.

      How about Jacques Torres chocolates?

      Actually, I'd probably contrive to get a pound or two of their pastrami into my luggage.

      And of course while you are down there, Russ and Daughters has plenty of wonderful stuff to be taking home.

      1. I often give people Zabar's chocolate babka, and it's always a hit!
