I bet this is great when drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

This stuff is the bomb. Don't put anything on it. It is great just sliced, pealed and eaten (don't get wigged out by the intentional mold bloom on the skin). It is produced locally where I live and the guy who makes it is really cool.

Decent price too as these go for 13 bucks a pop in the store here.

Best salami I've ever had.

How do the truffles add to the taste of the salami? I just can't close my eyes and really nail down what it would taste like...

ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!

Is this deal better than 50% off? It seems like it is but I am too lazy to do the math and figure this out. Maybe 60% off even.

Shoot.

I might be in if this is as good a deal as I think it is. I like it when people think I got them really expensive gifts for not an expensive pricetags.

Edit: well shoot, Guess I was looking at the wrong stuff on the website... Still a great deal though... Might be in for one.

Adds a really rich flavor, kinda earthy but not unpleasantly so. The truffle flavor does not overpower the salami flavor.

My personal favorites of his are the Barolo and the Wild Boar if you happen to run across them.

Not the same flavors, but these were at a local store for, and I kid you not, $2 apiece.

This was also for sale on 5/21/10 with a slightly different selection, when I ordered it. I was unimpressed, mainly as it was too hard to remove the skin to get to the salami. It was also very hard to cut through the skin.
Gonna pass on this one.

We have bought this twice before - it tastes like heaven (my wife's words). In for 2 this time!
Seriously, we have been waiting through the last few Woot offs for this. We bought a meat slicer, primarily just for this salami. We finally found it at Whole Foods for $15 a piece, and bought it, but the Woot deal is so much better. Yes, it has a funky smell and you have to peel the white stuff off, but it is worth it. It is relatively challenging to cut thin with a knife, because it is not as soft and fatty as the stuff you get at the grocery store or Trader Joe's. If you enjoy good wine, a nice piece of Parmesan and some real food, get this!

Preservatively speaking, how effectual doth the wrappings be? If delivered to a heated PO Box (heated by room temperature-ness, that is), wilt there be wilting of the Blessed Fruits? (Can things from woot be delivered to a PO Box? Never tried it before, but with Christmas travels so nigh, one must plan whence the Blessed Fruits shall be lustfully accosted.)

Also, or alternatively, how long should delivery take?


Salami is cured and is basically made by leaving it outside for a long time. It was developed to keep meat in Italy before refrigeration.
It will be fine.
I love me some good salami, in for 1

Uncured generally just means it doesn't contain nitrates although there aren't great rules on this.

I'd refrigerate it once you slice part of it off, but before then it is okay not to.

See, my wife and I were the exact opposite. The boar and the red wine were blah, but we really enjoyed the truffle ones.

We haven't tried the "house blend" yet so I'm thinking about pulling the trigger here, going to wait for the wife's opinion once she wakes up tomorrow. :P

When you have a large package of prime meat has anyone found the best place to hide it?

$2 per slice, or $2 per log?

Good question... it is $15 per stick in my neighborhood... Which makes this a great deal!

I got this last year and WOW my friends, family, and I loved them!!!
The Truffle one was by far my favorite. There is a nice high end store nearby that has salami and I have not found one that I liked more than this Truffle salami. I only wish I could afford to by more then one...

Do you really need to get your wife's opinion before you buy some meat? Wow...

Ok, what are sugars? I know what sugar is but when they have to say sugars it makes me think they're doing something funny like saying salts makes me think MSG or something else. Is there something besides plain old sugar in these?

Well, the quality is very high. You won't find better salami in this country. However, you can get salami that's as good at less than half the price: Molinari.

I am all over this order. I missed the last opportunity and ended up saving their website on my favorites. Saw their factory on the Food Truck show (I forget the official name) and have been hooked since.

And arrives by Christmas? Great, all the salami will be in my tummy by Christmas....

The "sugars" are probably dextrose. It's used in fermented sausages (e.g. salami) to help feed the bacteria responsible for the fermentation.

I got this last year and was not as impressed as others - thought the skins were almost impossible to get off and the taste was not what I was expecting from all of the reviews. even had the local winery folks try it and the owners wife spit it out - my two cents since I am keeping my money this time.

I've bought Creminelli's fine charcuterie the last two times they were offered. Creminelli Salamis are *extremely* awesome, and totally worth the price.

Be warned:

1: They're hard to peel. Creminelli has a whole section on their website devoted to educating consumers on how to peel the skin off their damn salamis, but it's always a chore. (http://www.creminelli.com/faq/)

2: If you don't devour them right away, these salamis will harden into still-edible-but-nearly-impossible-to-chew salami-flavored concrete in a week or two. This can be a benefit or a liability, depending on whether you like salami-flavored hard candy.

Any idea when this will be shipped. I'm leaving for Christmas on the 23rd and will be gone the following week. Should I have it by then?

Well, the front page indicates "Arrives by Christmas".. but I'm in the same boat. If it arrives the 23rd it's going to sit for a while as I'll be leaving that morning.

How precise an answer can we get on arrival date?

Dude... wait, what?

This stuff in incredible. Very delicious! The package will come with directions on removing the skin and storage. Read The Directions!
To remove the skin before slicing, I used a paper towel (to grab it) and it just pulls right off. Slice very thin and just let the flavors melt in your mouth! Mmmmmmm!

Oh, and buy the Cremenelli. It's delish and keeps forever.

Bought these last time when the wild boar and truffle varieties were offered, and they were excellent. As for storage and eating, during the last Woot, someone counseled "patience," said the salami was too soft and should cure a little longer. I, on the other hand recommend instant gratification. Last time I kept one of these too long (and not in a plastic bag) wanting make it last and it got too hard to slice. So throw caution to the wind, live for the day, and indulge yourself. Definitely in for one!
