Italian cookies (Ringos)

mipiace Jul 1, 2008 12:40 PM

I've just returned from a trip to Italy and among the many food items I tasted, loved, and swoon for now that I'm home are RINGOS! These were a delightful treat to take on the train rides around the country, and m y fiance was absolutely addicted. I'd love to get some for him as a surprise.. and some for myself, too, I suppose! Any ideas or tips on where to find obscure Italian imports such as these cookies?

    John Accardia & Sons in Medford looks like they distribute them: http://accardifoods.com/contact.htm

      It's amazing what you can do with Google:

      They have the kind with chocolate filling as well:

        Allstonian, you've just made me nostalgic...the links you posted are for Pennsylvania Macaroni in Pittsburgh, which is one of my all-time favorite Italian stores. I grew up in Pittsburgh, and make a special trip there every time I'm in town visiting my folks.

          Thanks for the help! Sadly, several stores around Somerville have stopped carrying the cookies after problems with sell-by dates a few months ago- customers complained about the confusion so Pavesi is no longer exporting here (or so the kind folk at Bob's of Medford told me). I'll try this Pittsburgh link, though.. perhaps I just caught a disgruntled employee anxious to get rid of me?
