Between the post about Macaroni & Cheese pizza and this, I feel a little like I've had too much lunch. If somebody runs across some Chicken Tetrazzini flavored lube .. don't write about it today, 'k?

Now that it's here, it seems like a really obvious flavor for them. I bet they all said "why haven't we thought of this before?" at that meeting.

This is Ben and Jerry's. They really couldn't have riffed on "Leave the gun; take the cannoli" for the name? Cannoli is descriptive, but not not very fun.

Speaking of this...cannolis...the actual thing.

Go into 99 out of 100 "Italian" restaurants in Seattle and ask for a cannoli and you'll get a blank stare.

You're more likely to find "herbed butter" than an Italian pastry around here. And you know what...cannoli isn't the only Italian pastry in the world.

Yes, hard to believe, all you folk, there is more than one Italian pastry. I should know, since every Sunday growing up we'd go to Stallone's (and we said it Sta-Lone-EE) in South Ozone and get a dozen to take to my grandma's railroad room style row house in Brooklyn.

This should come with cannoli shells.

@10 You should go back there. NOW! If you can't find cannoli in Seattle you don't deserve cannoli.

This might make up for losing the limited batch Rocky Road-ish.

The pastry shell would be too much of a chewathon from being frozen.

Oh, boo hoo hoo.

The weety beety Seattilite who proclaims his "global urbism" whines and cries like a bitty betty when someone calls him on it.

Go dry your eyes on the hem of JP Patches' sport coast, you provincialist.

@14 you seem to be the one with the blind eye for Italian pastries. It's like you're not even trying.
