Great value and even better value now. I saw plenty of these in the Anerley branch.

brilliant, saved me a fortune and a long journey in to the nearest City. I can stay in my leafy part of the world, nip in to town and still get her that charm she's been after for her bracelet. just have to hope they are doing the one she wants.

No one not even the Italians like eating Pandoros and Panettone, it's like having a cake made of sandpaper and cardboard with a sprinkle of icing sugar. What's the point of these? If some one bought me one for Christmas I'd disown them for being thick.

Sadly can’t agree with that being italian, it’s a major part of Christmas and Easter, however we won’t eat these types of Pandoro or Panettone - I’ve been given a few from the discount stores over the years and they have all been awful - just as you describe sandpaper and cardboard. A few good ones in Sainsbury’s and mostly good from Waitrose - but then they become over priced.

If you want good ones at the right price, find a decent Italian deli, and get them from there.

I will investigate this further, I am skeptical, however I have eaten pizza from Dominos then a real Italian pizza and the skeptic in me was converted so there's hope.

I'm checking in as another (semi) italian that can confirm this. That side of my family love it, as do I.
Even more so when I commit the sin of microwaving it a little, so it's nice, warm and squidgy.

Domino's, Pizza Hut etc.... are not real pizza's, just the name given to a dough based product that has a topping....try a good Panettone / Pandoro and you will not go back!

Indeed there is no comparison to the real thing.

If you can tell me where I could get a panettone Genovese in London, I would be SO grateful!!!
