    #NationalCannoliDay 2021


    Holy Cannoli, the day is finally here!

    Happy #NationalCannoliDay! While we celebrate cannoli every day, we’re thrilled to have some fun and spread some cannoli awareness and facts with you. Plus, we’ve partnered with social media gurus to give away prizes that are sure to excite.

    Cannoli come from Italy and have been served as a delicious treat since somewhere between 827 and 1091. While the Golden Cannoli Shells Company was started much more recently than that, we’ve got our signature, high-quality taste and golden finish down to a science. For more than 50 years, our product line has grown to include not only our original cannoli shells, but also chocolate covered shells, a range of cannoli fillings and dips and our very own creation: the cannoli chip.

    Some fun facts about cannoli:

    • The word cannoli is plural! When you only want one (and really, who only wants one?), it’s called a cannolo!
    • One of the most famous cannoli references of all time was made up on the spot! In one of the more memorable lines of The Godfather, Clemenza says “Leave the gun – take the cannoli.” It turns out that the line in both the script and the novel only read: “Leave the gun.” We prefer the version with cannoli.
    • The world record for the largest cannolo is a whopping 119.069 kg (or 262.5 lb). Who could create such a masterpiece? Actually, it was us! Our team at Golden Cannoli paired up with Lactalis American Group, Inc. in 2014, and no one has beaten us yet!

    Our #NationalCannoliDay giveaway has been brought to you through a partnership with the brand Rustic Marlin and social media influencers Savvy Saving Couple, DomestiKateBlog and Making Marinos. The prize? We’re giving away the ultimate Cannoli Starter Pack to three (3) lucky winners! The pack includes: delicious treats from Golden Cannoli, a custom Rustic Marlin serving tray and a Nespresso Vertuo Next (pods included)!

    Golden Cannoli Continues SQF Level III Certification

    We are excited to announce that Golden Cannoli continues to be rated at a SQF Level III Certification. The Safe Quality Food standard is renowned by foodservice providers and retailers who require rigorous and dependable food safety management systems. They are the only GFSI recognized standard that incorporates a food quality component in addition to standards for food and employee safety. Level III is the SQF’s highest standard that can be met, and Golden Cannoli continues to excel in this area every year.

    Golden Cannoli has had a long-standing commitment to excellence. Since their fathers started the business in 1970, quality, safety and family values have been at the heart of it all. After achieving Level II Certification in 2016, they knew achieving Level III was their next step. To attain Level III certification, certified SQF auditors assessed the company’s Food Safety Quality Management System (FSQMS), including vendor management, allergen control, food security, crisis management, Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points (HACCP), and their food quality and control.

    “As a family business, we’re very aware that our family name is represented by every product that leaves our factory” says Valerie Bono, owner and chief sales and marketing officer. “Achieving this certification ensures that everything that leaves our facility is made to the highest food quality and safety standards.” The Golden Cannoli team worked tirelessly to achieve this certification. When asked what’s next after this exciting achievement, Valerie said, “We are interested in continuously improving internally so our external relationships can continue to thrive post COVID. We are proud of what we have accomplished and earning a near perfect score is amazing, but the work and commitment remains our top priority so we can sustain excellence in the industry in 2021 and beyond.”

    Filling Cannoli Cupcakes with Chocolate chip cannoli cream


    Let cupcakes cool completely and mix your cannoli cream.  Put cannoli cream in a gallon ziploc bag, or a pastry bag fitted with a star tip.  

    Once the cupcakes have cooled, use a spoon or a small biscut cutter to cut out a 1" x 1" circle in the center of the cupcake.  Fill this with chocolate chip cannoli cream. Finish the cupcake with even more sweetened cannoli cream, or the buttercream frosting of your choice.

    Top with additional chocolate chips andOriginal Cannoli Chips, refrigerate, and serve.  

    Cupcakes can be made in advance, we don't recommend filling them more than a 12 hours in advance.  

    PS. For a perfect cut in half cannoli cupcake, freeze for 30 minutes, then cut with a clean hot knife (we ran ours under hot water for 30 seconds).
