These are right in there with Candy Basket salted caramels and Beehive cheese, just a touch down from the Balsamic that had better make an appearance soon!
Yup, got mine already, just finished up my wild boar last week.

I'd be in if it weren't for the "natural flavors." I value transparency and am not a fan of such vague information.

Yeah I would have preferred that it say "Artifical Flavors" instead, too.

$40 for 24 oz of salami? Steer clear folks... I've had these before and they were nearly half of this price. They were incredibly hard... You could bend nails with them. I sliced them paper thin and they were still incredibly hard and tough to chew. And the flavor was not great either... Basically petrified pork with very little else... No spices to speak of. Maybe the first time I got them they were old desiccated stock... The supposed 7 oz versions I bought checked in at all less than that... The worst was 4.8 oz. That was the wild boar truffle version... I was extremely disappointed. Do yourself a huge favor and buy anything from molinari over these... I've had countless better salamis in the past so I'm by no means a novice salume buyer... Even delallo makes a better product at 1/4 the price... These rank among my worst woot purchases of all time. I rarely voice my opinion on discussion boards but these were so exceptionally poor I hope that anyone who is on the fence about spending $45 for a pound and a half of salami will steer clear... Go get yourself 3 lobsters or two big thick USDA prime steaks... If you want to treat yourself to something special, this is not the buy for you. I fed half to the dogs with their dry food... Guess what was still there in the morning? "Award winning" salami.

Just bought one of these from Whole foods for $7.99. They had all the versions in this pack for <$10. Not a deal.

Writing in from Creminelli here. This is an understandable concern - here's why we do it. The listing of spices and natural flavors (typically extracts or reductions of spices, fruits or vegetables) are what allow Cristiano Creminelli to keep confidential his prized family treasure of recipes. What I can tell you is that these things are used for flavor and have no nutritional value or allergens. That said, if you want the recipe you're going to have to go through Grandma Creminelli and that's going to be tough, rest her soul.

Thanks for picking us up at Whole Foods and Happy Thanksgiving! The deal is you get the Wild Boar salami which is typically $17.99 and up per piece at retail at a discount by buying it direct. The Sopressata is typically $11.99 at retail including Whole Foods. It's a little larger than what you purchased.

We take great care in handcrafting each salami. The product has been favorably recognized by a list of people that makes us, well, proud. However, what happens once it leaves our hands is something we don't always successfully control. The product gets too hot, too cold, too humid, etc. When these anomalous circumstances occur that affect the quality of the product we happily replace it...which is something else we're very proud of.

Sounds like you had a bad experience and it's still bothering you a little. You know, bad things can happen to a good salami. Why don't you let us replace it? Info@Creminelli.com

That's a great offer and should alleviate any concerns people have. You are obviously willing to stand behind your product.

What I really want to know though, what is on the Creminelli Thanksgiving table, and can I come over next year?

.. and that is not at all congruent with the Creminelli I've purchased and enjoyed in the past, especially the Wild Boar.
As a hunter in CA, bow and black-powder, we enjoy the taste of products that haven't been 'raised' over that of those that are feed-lot specials.

With only a few states not lit up, clearly many do appreciate your salami.

I had a similar experience to that above poster. I ordered a similar pack of these salami a few months ago. All of them were hard as rocks and difficult to chew. I was not happy at all. I have never commented on a woot post until now, but I felt so strongly about this that I felt the need to.

I can attest to how incredibly delicious this salami is. I get it at Whole Foods usually, and stocked up on the sale they had this month. I have not had the pleasure of trying the Wild Boar and this is tempting me. My favorites are the Sopressata and the Cacciatore.

I know this has posted on previous offerings, but any comments on general storage techniques; before opening, after opening, etc, as well as how long this is good before opening, after opening, etc..

I've been on the fence for this stuff for awhile now and might finally pull the trigger. My go-to 'artisan' salami recently made some changes, increasing the size of their sticks, for about the same price, and drop in quality is noticeable.

I guess this video answers most of my questions, but any additional insight would be helpful.

Yes. You beat me to it. The most common issues come from salamis getting too hot or frozen so keep them in the deli drawer of your fridge. Also, once open store in a zip lock bag with as little extra air as possible. They don't spoil but they can get too dry over time so don't wait too long to enjoy or share! I try to eat within 60 days of brining them home.

The Creminelli household is doing risotto with Mortadella and terrine of prosciutto cotto. Salt Lake Magazine shared the recipes and you can find them on WWW.Facebook.com/Creminelli. Oh, and like most meals it will start with a small salami.

Since a rep from Creminelli is here, what's the best way to store your product? Would keeping it with my wines (~60-70 degrees year round) be okay?

The best way to store the salami is keep it in plastic and in the refrigerator. It's shelf stable (the Creminelli Team takes it camping all the time and it's delicious a few days out on the trail), but keeping it chilled keeps it at its optimum eating for the longest period of time. If you have questions after the Woot is over, email us info@creminelli.com

This stuff is delicious, got it in a previous woot and loved it. However, if you just store it in your cupboard like I did, it will go hard after a few months. So take the fridge advice. Don't try peeling it cold though, you'll cry.

The price is decent, these go for $13 each at Fairway.

I've got one salami left from a previous wooting, but this is missing the tartufo! That would have had us.

Just finished with my day and got a chance to look at this. Entertainingly, the wild boar made an appearance with dinner today - I put pieces of it in the salad along with candied pecans and apple pieces, and tossed with a cider vinaigrette dressing. Was delicious. Perhaps I should restock in the last half hour this is available...
