Handmade Multigrain Taralli Crackers
Giannetti Artisans’s Handmade Multigrain Taralli Crackers from Puglia (Apulia) are a remarkable handmade product.
In case you don’t know what taralli are, here is a bit of a background: Taralli are toroidal Italian snack food, common all over the southern half of the Italian Peninsula. They are tasty crackers similar in texture to a breadstick or pretzel. In fact, taralli are both sweet and sugar-glazed or savory. With this being said, savory ones are usually flavored with onion, garlic, poppy seeds, fennel, pepper, chili or just salt.
In fact Giannetti Artisans sourced a small family run business in Bari who makes our crackers with a secret family recipe. To this day, they have never revealed their recipe! Furthermore, the Extra Virgin Olive Oil used in the taralli crackers is from an area called Bitonto, known as the Olive Oil capital of Puglia (Apulia). Not to mention the fact that the producer uses flour that comes from the Apulia area called “Tavoniere delle Puglie”. It is the second largest wheat producer in Italy right after Padania.
The Apulia region is well-known for their baking abilities and high quality wheat products. If you take a close look at the shape of the crackers, you can tell they are truly handmade. By all means, crunch in and try for yourself! – (300 gr) 10.58 oz bag

We just received our first shipment of these multigrain taralli. They are clearly handmade. Their flavor is more hearty than the typical taralli from Puglia and the various grains really shine. While we don’t know whether we could have found this kind in Puglia, they are nonetheless DELICIOUS! These only list EVOO among the ingredients while some of the others also list olive oil before EVOO. We have grown to love taralli on our various trips to Puglia (including Bari, Lecce, Altamura, etc.) these rank right up there with the best tasting and freshest we have had. Highly recommended.
