Cannoli, Sauce Italian Market, Calgary

I was pleasantly surprised to see flavored cannoli at this Italian market (located in the SW area of Calgary).

Flavours included: peanut butter, cookies and cream, skor, pistachio etc.

These had a huge American twist. The shells were tasty and crunchy but unfortunately the fillings disappointed me. Cannoli’s are normally filled with a light ricotta cheese filling but these had a heavier sweetened cream filling. Since I was disappointed with the quality of the cream, I was not impressed with the cannoli’s here. The side flavours however (e.g. Raspberry and white chocolate) made it appealing.

I personally prefer simple, authentic items rather than fancier versions. So for this reason, I wouldn’t be tempted to buy these again. However, it’s certainly worth the try, but don’t expect these to be anywhere good as the ones as in Italy.
