One of the best snacks any Italian can have around the house are taralli, a crispy bread stick. At the store you& usually find them in small circles flavoured with hot peppers, sun-dried tomatoes or fennel. My Calabrese side makes them
One thing that I've been bought up on is taralli. Hint of fennel in every piece, can be eaten stand alone or with extras, e. prosciutto and bocconcini, various dips, melenzane. brb salivating too much.
