One star has dropped....
I have been buying these breadsticks, which appear to come directly from Italy, for ages. They come fairly priced and, until recently, I thought they were the best breadsticks (grissini in italian) available in all UK. In these days they are still good, but for some reasons they are no longer light and crispy and they do not taste of e.v. olive oil any more. They are now more breadlike and some of the taste has now been lost. The recipe has mysteriously changed. That's a pity. The only reason for this change I can think of is that they are now less prone to break during handling. That said, be it clear, I still recommend this product. Good as antipasto or aperitif accompaniment with olives, italian hams, salami and with dips. That's the reason for which I have awarded 4 stars instead of 5.
Best breadsticks I have ever bought ,will definitely not be buying any other brand from now on. They have a wonderful crunch to them they are light and both filling and tasty.
Not worth the money.
Wouldn't buy again. They're crispy but not very tasty. Also very sad to see a product calling itself 'Artisan' uses palm oil :-(
A bit too rustic
These were too 'rustic' a lot harder than the ones I'm used to. LG
