San Gennaro NYC!- Stop by the stand at 117 Mulberry Street in Little Italy, NYC, September 16-26! There's taralli, nuts, novelties, and of course, torrone!
We hope to have a lot of our inventory back in stock by the end of September. Sign up on the product page to be notified when your favorite snack is back in stock!
If you understand that, your family probably speaks Neapolitan or you’ve spent some time at a Giglio feast!
When someone says, “I’m going to an Italian feast or festival this weekend”, what comes to mind? Sausage and peppers, zeppole, torrone, andrite, an Italian band, dancing, fireworks, maybe even fried oreos and crowds…but a 70 foot tower that holds a band and is carried by 80-100 people?
This weekend, the East Harlem Giglio Society and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Shrine will have their annual feast culminating with Giglio Lift Sunday. On that day, at 1:30, the band will climb onto the platform, the paranza (lifters) will take their places under the Giglio di Sant’Antonio, the #1 Capo will grab his cane and get ready to direct the music and dancing of the Giglio through the streets! So come on down to East Harlem, visit the torrone stand for nuts, biscotti, torrone, un malocchio keychain, and see the 2,000 pound Giglio dance in the streets of NYC!
Watch a from the Giglio Society of East Harlem’s You Tube page. Learn more about the Giglio Feast rituals and the feast schedule on their website. Pleasant Avenue, 114-116 Street East Harlem, NY, August 10th-13th
*Guagliu’! (Boys) Aizate ‘e Spalle! (Lift your shoulders!) Cuonci Cuonci! (Nice and Easy!) Aghiett! (Drop it!)

While this holiday season may have been quite different from past holidays, I do hope that you found time to connect, in some way, with loved ones. We had a blast making zeppole over FaceTime with family!
This morning I finally got around to answering just some of the wonderful notes that were sent to us. As I poured through the emails, one theme kept popping up, memories. Memories of past holidays, of hard candies in bowls at nonnas, of torrone in stockings, but all of the memories had something in common, joy. A smile on a mother's face as they remembered the taste from childhood, watching grandkids steal another torroncini from the bowl, reliving a trip to Italy where they had their first bite of torrone. And you know what, that brings a smile to my face. This is why we keep going, why we keep at it, working as hard as we can to get all the orders out the door, packing up those baskets with love.
We're trying to provide a little bit joy, especially when joy may not be in abundance. If we can deliver joy, then we've done our job. But we couldn't do it without you. That's why we want to take this time to express our sincere thanks. Thanks for your patience during this crazy shipping season and for supporting small businesses. Your support allows us to continue to offer you the Italian products that help keep the tradition of torrone and our memories alive.
We look forward to serving you in 2021!

The 2020 holiday season is like no other. Our small team is dedicated to processing your orders within one business day, however the demand on shipping carriers is unprecedented and shipping times are much longer than usual.
As you've probably heard by now, packages delivered by USPS and UPS are delayed almost everywhere across the U.S.
Priority Mail, which usually takes about three business days to arrive, is taking much longer. Packages seem to be sitting at USPS, or sometimes are "in transit" between facilities for a longer period of time than usual, or are not being scanned until final delivery. While we are seeing tremendous delays, orders are being delivered.
You can always reach out to us if you have questions about your order but unfortunately, like any other business, we have no control over your package once we hand it over to the carrier. The majority of the time, the only information that we have is the same tracking information that you're looking at. We wish we had a back door number to the post office, but we don't!
We're frustrated about the shipping delays. We strive to process our orders within one business day and are accustomed to quick shipping times. Our goal is to provide a seamless and happy shopping experience from start to finish. We wish we could do something to speed up the shipping process, but it is out of our control.
We are here, email@example.com, to answer any questions, concerns, or hear your suggestions.
Thank you for your patience.
