Sugar Coated Taralli Cookies 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. Taralli 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 taralli 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 taralli 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 region 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.
