What are Taralli?

If you’ve visited Puglia, you’ll recognize Taralli—they’re eaten at every opportunity in southern Italy.  And after tasting a few, you’ll know why. 

Taralli aren’t biscuits, they’re not crackers and they’re not cookies.  They are a distinct old-world snack tracing back to the 8th century in Puglia, Italy.  Taralli were invented as a means to utilize leftover scraps of bread dough.  Flavored, then shaped, then boiled and baked, Taralli are smooth and shiny on the surface, with a satisfying crunch.  Warning:  they’re addictive!

Taralli come in flavors like Fennel, Olive Oil, Pepper, Cheese, Rosemary and more.
