No, it's not a snack. Nibbling is a gender-neutral term for either a niece or nephew.

"I'm going to visit my nibblings today."

Or, if you're going to be an aunt or uncle but don't know the sex of the baby:

"I'm buying gifts for my nibbling!"

3. Nurdle

That little blob of toothpaste has a name, and that name is nurdle.
