Taralli

TARALLI

While Taralli are now synonymous with the Puglia region, Neapolitans might argue that the origins of this snack lie in the heart of Campagnia, where they were eaten like we eat peanuts and pretzels with beer and wine. But, that's just so Italian! Wherever they originated, taralli went on to become one of Italy's most ubiquitous snacks. In fact, it is said that they gave rise to the saying tutto finisce a taralluccio e vino, which means that any argument or dispute is ended in a friendly manner. Through history, taralli, composed mainly of Italian soft wheat, was eaten as an alternative to bread; today it is a classic snack item as the result of the many varieties in which it is made.
