Anyone here remember old/discontinued Stella d'Oro products?

Sorry...searched and wrote to Lance (the company who bought the Stella d'Oro product line) and couldn't get any information on them. I am tempted to recreate them. I need to try and find an ingredient list somehow, if only to see the stuff used to make them. I suspect it was flour, eggs, sugar, some kind of leavening agent...and I'm suspecting they were boiled, baked, and then went through some type of drying process. The outer texture is almost soft-pretzel like...the way your tongue would stick to the glazed coating...
I'm very tempted to try to recreate them!

Abalone

Im definitely thinking bubbly white...nothing sweet to drown out the mango, but the bubbles will help cut the richness of the butter. Do you have access to their wine list?

The Swiss fudge cookies are still made. A company called Lance produces them under the Stella d'Oro brand name.

Abalone

Depending on the preparation...and the type of abalone. If you are using dried abalone and braising it in a rich sauce then I would go for something like a New Zealand pinot noir. If you are using fresh abalone and cooking it quickly and topping it with a lighter sauce I would go with something effervescent but crisp - not very sweet, like an Argentinian sparkling chardonnay.

Bob, I was raised speaking Yiddish, and we also had eier kichel, but ours were like bow ties and had large sugar crystals on them. They also came in large flat rounds the size of a large pita bread and those had smaller sugar crystals on them. Oddly enough, though, I liked the ones that were plain - without the sugar coating. Those were airy and simple and great with pickled herring :) I believe they call them "nothings" in English.

I don't ever remember seeing them with icing.
Taralli are much harder and crunchier.
These didn't actually have much crunch factor, though they were dense. They did have an odd softness to them and when you dipped them in hot coffee or cocoa they disintegrated in your mouth.

Nope - see response above.

Come on foodies - someone's got to remember these!

Nope - those are actual cookies. These were about 5 times thicker and 2 times wider and not half as sweet and came in a cellophane bag...no box. They had no icing...just a shiny glaze, and almost like a cross between a hard and soft pretzel - but not as dark and not savory and, though on the light side, not airy - very dense. There was a definite sweetness to it but it was very light...barely sweet.

I remember a product that (I believe) used to be produced by Stella d"Oro.
It was a dense hard flower shaped "cookie" with a hole in the center. It had a shiny exterior and was very dry, but practically melted in your mouth after you started chewing.
It tasted a bit eggy, not very sweet at all.
My grandmother used to buy them and I am dying for that little bit of nostalgia.
Is anyone here familiar with them? What were they called? Is there possibly another company that makes them?
Thanks!
