What makes BBB’s stand out? It’s flavor, It’s Size, It’s Quality
Bellicchi’s Best Biscotti is smaller than many Biscotti – it’s crunchy, making it perfect for snacking and dunking.
Because of its size, you may get a different taste with each bite. When you bite into an Almond Fennel Orange Biscotti – you’ll get a crunch of almond, a blast of fennel, a back note of orange; a bite of Johnnycake offers the light crunch of Johnnycake meal and the sweetness of Ne England cranberries...
We bake six flavors of Biscotti – Almond Fennel Orange; Cocoa Nibs; White Chocolate Macadamia Lemon; Johnnycake Cranberry - The Rhode Island Biscotti (also packaged as Johnny Cranberry - The New England Biscotti); Almond Fennel Orange - gluten free; Cocoa Nibs - gluten free
During the Winter months we add to our baking:
Biscotti Bark - Biscotti crumbles embedded in dark chocolate
Panettone - more cake-like than other Panettone studded with NE Cranberries and Golden Raisins
