What a special package that was! Bacon Marmalade~sounds too good to be true! And, of course the chocolate.....with pistachios! You will be eating well this holiday! Happy Holidays to you and your hubby! Have you been back to IT recently? Thanks for keeping in touch!


Nooo ! i pistacchi ricoperti di cioccolato noooo! adoro i pistacchi e anche il cioccolato!! ecco lo sapevo: la mia dieta è finita in questo post! DELIZIOSI! Bacioni e tanti auguri di Buon Natale e felice anno nuovo!

These sound really good, my kind of treat - I would say :)

Simona, I have some awards for you - I hope you will accept them:


Oh! Yum! Now, I'm salavating. ;-)

Simona Carini

Hi Jann. Truly special, indeed. I was in Perugia for a week in October. Happy Holidays to you!

Ciao Francy. Mi rendo conto che non e' un'offerta ipocalorica, ma e' vero che un assaggio e' molto soddisfacente e sapore e ricordo durano a lungo. E poi, sai, io non ho a disposizione tutte le leccornie che avrei se fossi in Italia ;) Augurissimi anche a te.

Thank you so much, Paolo! That is very kind of you. I certainly will.

I understand why, Paz.


A beautiful post! The chocolate-covered pistachios look amazing! In Atlanta at Empire State South, Hugh Acheson makes an appetizer of pimento cheese topped with bacon marmalade which is spread on bread or crackers. It's delicious even if you don't think you like pimento cheese.


Wow! Chocolate AND bacon? I never thought of chocolate and pistachios - but I have a bar of chocolate left from the cookies (shame, I bought too much) and found some wonderful pistachios yesterday.... Look forward to hearing about the bacon marmalade - sounds wonderful.

Simona Carini

Hi Lynne. I have never had pimento cheese. The pairing with bacon marmalade sounds interesting.

Hi Katie. I am sure you can put that chocolate to good use. I hope you'll like the pairing with pistachios.


Glad that your package arrived - we mailed it from the outlet mall in Grove City, PA when we were south of the border for a shopping trip and I wasn't too confident in the mall postal outlet! I'll be interested to hear to what good use you put the bacon marmalade!

Your chocolate covered pistachios look brilliant - I could eat some right now.

Happy New year!

Simona Carini

Hi Jerry and thanks again for the thoughtful gift. I'll let you know how I will use the bacon marmalade. I am glad that serendipity brought together chocolate and pistachios under my eyes, because the pairing is really nice. Happy New Year to you too!
