Stop the Presses!

Purely by accident, have discovered a wonderful new snack!  I happened upon it at our local Giuliano's, but they are said to be available at Publix, Wal-Mart,  Whole Foods, Winn-Dixie, Bristol Farms and Gelson's.   I'm not tormenting you by describing something wonderful and making you want it -- and it's only available at a specialty store in the mountains of Italy,  reachable only by mule trains during the month of March.

FocacciBites are sold in a 4.23 oz. sack for $3 (Giuliano's).  Six  crackers = 155 calories or 25.8 calories per cracker. 

Why Olive Oil and Sea Salt FocacciBites?  They are silky-looking pillows of  toasted bread with a delicate coat of olive oil.  The sea salt taste is apparently dissolved in the olive oil and then both are painted on to the "bread."  The texture is crisp, but soft, very airy...

Other flavors are:  Tomato and Oregano or Garlic and Parsley.  abracogroup.com is located in Doral, FL  These snacks are a product of Spain.
