    I’ve been eating your sausage for years I mean years I used to live in New Jersey and your sausage were readily available in the surrounding stores. I now live n Cleveland Ohio and can’t find them anywhere, so I was wondering if I could order them and have them shipped, the ones in question are (RICHARD”S country prize brand – HOT – SAGE MADE IN HAWTHORNE New Jersey- H.C.

    Everyone in my family would like to purchase your sausage. We are located all over the US. Can you purchase your sausage online? It would really be great if we could purchase it online with Walmart or Amazon. Is there any plan to re-instate the ability to order online with Amazon?

  4. I’ve been buying PREMIO ITALIAN HOT SAUSAGE for a few years. It was always pretty good. Last month I bought two packages and fried them up to put into the big pot of sauce I’d just made. I’m
    so glad I tasted one before putting them into the sauce = TERRIBLE !!! It wasn’t an “off” taste; it was just NOT “ITALIAN” ! I tasted all, cut them up to see NO Fennel & no hot pepper flakes or color. Even my husband (who eats anything) said they were awful. There was a weird flavor in them, a spice or something we couldn’t identify. My sauce would’ve been ruined. We threw them out. I’m not looking for money; I just want YOU to know about this. And I won’t be buying them anymore. I’m old now, but I guess I’ll have to go back to making my own REAL Italian sausage with FENNEL in them — even though it is difficult for me physically.DO NOT SHOW MY EMAIL OR MY LOCATION !!! Please ?!?!

    Since you purchased Appetito Sausage Company in Union City , New Jersey do you still make the Pork Braccoli that Appetito was so well know for. If so where can I purchase it.

    • Harrisburg, PA
      We do still make the pork bracciole, however, it is only available in limited areas. Most Shop Rite locations still carry it, so if you have a Shop Rite located near you, you can check for it there! Otherwise, you can speak to the meat manager at your local store and request that they order it. We hope that helps!
