Product Description

Size: 1 pk

Panforte, simply translated, is "strong-bread". Panforte is traditionally a dense mix of almonds, candied fruit sweetened with honey and spices. In many parts of the world, you can find panforte year round but it was traditionally a Christmas sweetbread and that is rooted deep into our traditions here at Ditalia as well.

Panforte is round and dense with several styles available, the most popular being the sweet Panforte Margherita.

This typical and traditional recipe of Panforte Margherita from Siena is still prepared according to the old, original recipe with candied fruits and almonds and an exclusive mixture of spices.

What can I say? I'm a fruitcake lover! This product is awesome. Although it's publicly cool to express your disdain for fruitcake, I know that there are lots of closeted fruitcake lovers out there. If this describes you, order one of these bad boys. You won't be sorry! Oh, and they keep indefinitely in the refrigerator as well!

This was the second time I have ordered this DEE-LISH treat since I got back from Italy. It is a regular offering in sweet shops and restaurants there, and I ate it last year and got hooked. It is very difficult to find here so I was VERY happy to be able to buy in bulk....this awesome dessert is addictive!!!!
The best way to describe it is as a VERY VERY dense spicy (as in cinnamon, cloves, etc.) fruitcake type dessert dusted with powdered sugar. It dates back to medieval times apparently.....I LOVE it!!!!!!!

Not what I had expected....but my bar was set very high since my last Panforte was purchased and eaten in Florence, Italy, where it was made. I was really disappointed because what I had purchased on Amazon was imported from Italy. I will not be buying this product again for myself or as a gift.

I have been to Tuscany and Siena many times. I also make Panforte at home around the holidays. Panforte is something I know well. This particular style is Panforte Margharita, a blonde form of Panforte often called Panforte Bianco. It is absence of chocolate or cocoa which gives it a lighter and brighter flavor. This is a very good value Panforte. The price is excellent for the size. It is covered with a large amount of powered sugar. The bottom is edible paper and the disc is surrounded by paper which has to be peeled off. It is completely sealed so you will have to use a pair of scissors to open it. The flavor and texture are both completely right and delicious. It is very much authentic like you would have in Siena, the home of Panforte. This is the best deal I know for Panforte in the U.S.

I ordered four, the first one unfortunately had lots of shells from the
nuts in it. Four of us ate it and all four got shells stuck in our teeth.
I have been going to contact the company I bought them from but so far
have neglected to do that. Two others were consumed and they were fine,
no shells encountered. Fourth one is a Christmas present, hope that one
will be fine also.

Tried it for the first time and wasnt much impressed. There are many other products locally which are much better.

This had too much of white powder on the top of it and it fell on the floor/carpet each time I took it out to eat...

I kept the last one in a drawer for several years (long story) and it was just a perfect when I ate it as when I bought it. This confection will last and stay fresh for a very long time if unopened. It reminds me of sitting in Italy and savoring a sweet delicacy.

A fine example of a panforte. Good, but for the price, great. Can be used as gifts. I have seen many people try it for the first time and love it.
