White, black truffle butters available in valley

In the case of some ingredients, it takes just a smidgen to add flavor to a dish, and truffle butter is one of them. Reader Stephen Najmowski, who’s looking for truffle butter, can get both white and black truffle butters locally. Jackie Raim emailed that Whole Foods Market carries both versions, and the Jensens at Village Meat and Wine, 5025 S. Eastern Ave., and Ron Lutz of The Butcher Block, 7625 S. Rainbow Blvd., said they do as well. …

For Vivian Beaugrand, who’s looking for a local source for Hoffy natural-casing hot dogs, Allyn Markert reported finding them at Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market. …

For John Bisci, who’s looking for Atkins frozen meals, Laurie Brenner and an Atkins representative said they’re available at Wal-Mart, Sue Augustyn found them at Smith’s at 2211 N. Rampart Blvd. and Colleen Sams found them at Albertsons at 2650 W. Horizon Ridge Parkway in Henderson. …

For Liz Hahn, who’s looking for Clearman’s cheese spread, Tara Klimek reported finding it at Albertsons at 7271 S. Eastern Ave., in the rear of the store, near the cream cheese. …

For Paula Carnes, who’s looking for a local source for Philly soft pretzels, Rich Kohut, who said his wife is a “Philly soft pretzel freak,” recommended www.FederalPretzel.biz (215-467-0505), which ships the pretzels with the salt separate and directions on how to put it on the pretzels. …

And for Ken Wolt, who’s looking for reader recommendations for restaurants that serve fried chicken, Michelle Knoll of Treasure Island, 3300 Las Vegas Blvd. South, said the resort’s Gilley’s BBQ serves a good version, “and we sell tons of it.” …

Here are more reader requests:

Markert: Hoffy’s Extra-Lean all-beef hot dogs, which he used to get at Albertsons;
