Hungry for an Italian Snack?

I just came back from almost three weeks in Italy: Sicily, the far south of the country into the heel of the boot, and ending with a few days in glorious Rome. The entire trip was magnificent and the food was incomparable: every single meal. Therefore, I had no urge to try any of the snacks I found in a highway espresso stop. BTW, I didn’t see one Starbucks during the entire trip; I think the company must realize that Italian coffee is far superior and a fraction of the price.

As far as language goes, to my ear Italian is the most beautiful and expressive language I am familiar with. So musical! If you want a pinch of salt you use a pizzica. Isn’t that adorable?

    We don’t have Starbucks in Italy (yet), but rumors has it that they will be opening one in Milan in 2016. The population is divided on the topic: some love it, some hate it.


    • A chain like Starbucks (with inferior coffee, in my opinion) is so unnecessary in Italy. You can hardly go anyplace there without a multitude of places selling inexpensive, excellent cups of espresso, latte, macchiato, etc. I wish I were there right now!
