Love your new design, Angelo!

I didn't realize other Trappist monasteries offered goods such as these. Lucky you! I hope they do mail-order one day.

oh, they have other food products as well like cashew wine, dried mangoes etc.
i have heard that they are getting a lot of proposals from the business sector offering to export and widely retail their produce. they are afraid they couldn't meet the demand. they do everything by hand which is what makes their products unique.
