Kathy Wakile Cannoli Kit Overpriced!

December 9, 2012 |By Continue Reading


While I love me some Cannoli’s, I thought I’d go check out Kathy Wakile’s Cannoli Kit online and quite possibly order me some to try it out! I googled “Cannoli Kit” and came across some cannoli kit’s from Costco! But before I get to that, I went to Kathy’s official site and saw that I could get a 24-piece gourmet Cannoli kit for 45 dollars! On top of that, it’s on sale and the regular price is $54.25!

So I went back to the cannoli kit from Costco that looks exactly the same and is 24-pieces as well and it was 8 dollars! Just 8 bucks! And they have killer ratings! I hate when housewives come up with something and over price it so I thought I’d point this one out!

Will you be purchasing Kathy’s Cannoli Kit?!

I shelled out the 50 bucks. Got nothing…no product, no shipping. Sent a dozen emails with only one “we will look into it” reply! Had to track them down on FB to finally get a call back. Made up email excuses, offered to get me a new order. Got again no more call backs. Weeks later I got my paypal money refunded but, didnt have the product for my daughters party. Waste of time ! Hands down one of the worst in customer service. Ill just make my own damn cannolis. More reliable

Very nicely put. I can’t stand bashers. It’s not easy keeping things in perspective when you’re on a show like that. Her and Caroline both have represented their families well. Very proud. Would love to have friends like them here in AR. . 🙂

I love Kathy but would not pay that when I can get the most amazing Cannolis from Calandras. Everyone in north Jersey knows that.

I was at a Christmas party last week- end and they had the Costco $8.00 cannolis there. I will say they were pretty good! Of course not as good as homemade but good. I agree with you Roxy why pay $45 to $54 for Kathy’s when you can get them for $8 bucks. You’d be foolish townsite your money on a kit!

I’m no Kathy fan, but I think the fish jokes are ridiculous. Many of you are disgusted by the comment but you continue to repeat it. It’s disrepectful to all women.

It’s disrespectful to KATHY, not all women. That is quite a leap.

Personally I think it gets repeated, because it is her own husband who disrespected her, at a business meeting (!!). Every time the comment gets made it’s a reminder of how vile and disrespectful her husband is. This comment is on Richie, not us. Well that’s how I feel anyway.

Also it is such a repulsive thought that when I read a comment about her, um, katfish, I lose my appetite and it helps me stick to a healthy diet! So I love it!!

This should be directed to Rich Wakile.. Joe Gi already got hit up for his words on the show, by Andy Cohen, twitter, blogs, etc… While I agree some things are disrespectful, its out of my hands. And some them are fitting and funny.

Thats the thing- her Hubby is the one who created this mess! He really opened the door to this.. whether its right or wrong for us to continue it is irrelevant . Her husband should have watched his mouth.. but why would he do that when he was able to degrade Teresa with his so called jokes and the lesbians? PFFFT…

I bought a big bag of cannoli filling at the bakery in Shoprite of Oakland (NJ) for $4.95 yesterday. It was fresh and delicious. They also have the homemade shells there too. The baker said I could even freeze the filling.

I wish her luck, but $50 is really expensive for 24 MINI cannolis.

She would have been better off selling her desserts locally first and not nationally.

Maybe her shells and filling are awesome and they are worth the price but she doesn’t have the following/fans/viewers to care enough about her – which she brought upon herself.

I don’t think anyone locally was interested.. remember they went to old neighborhood baker where she grew up in Patterson? I think the local bakeries may be offended to have a cannoli kit, when they make all of their cannoli fresh daily.

I honestly feel bad for Kathy. I think pre-Melissa she was likely a mostly good person. I also think she did not fit in to the rhonj world and is doing the best she can although her behavior at the reuion was awful. I truly wish Kathy and Teresa could reconcile and kick Melissa to the curb like the garbage she will always be. That woman, Mego has destroyed a family in more than a couple directions and decade long friendships. They all need to see Melissa for the coniving witch she is.

Unfortunately, another blog implies that Teresa will have another bad edit this season and Kathy Is not in T’s court. My take on this, if the gossip stands as true – and if Teresa does not see the writing on the wall (Bravo edits) I will find it difficult to support her. We all know Bravo producers play an active part in what the viewer sees – and if Teresa allows another season like we just witnessed – then there is something rotten in Denmark – my source is Fame…

I’m sorry but Kathy’s cannoli kit has star power, something that genetic kit does not have!

On a serious note, I congratulate Kathy for maintaing her storyline while the cameras are NOT rolling. Maybe Melissa should take a cue from her with her fictitious singing career which she only mentions when the cameras are there and even then barely.

For me the choice is simple. Ignore the insultingly overpriced (talk about naked/unbridled greed) “kit” and get to the same end by way of a much more economical and fun way.

To paraphrase the immortal Clemenza, “…leave the “kit”; take the cannoli.”

The cost is so high bc you’re really just paying for a fancy sounding name. Look at the name, now look at the QVC picture, look at the name, look at the picture. The 2 don’t go together. Fancy to plain. Glitter to dull. Perrier to blk. Just stuck some cannolis on a plate with no presentation at all.

She and her husband are poor. That’s what poor people do. They try and rip people off! Cannolis aren’t even an every person thing like chocolate covered strawberries or something universal like that. And when have you ever heard of someone spending $50 for a BAKING item? Ridiculous.

Well, I live in the UK so I’m not really sure how the dollar compares to the English pound. If the dollar is the exact same as a pound then I think that is a ridiculous amount of money to spend. I doubt anyone would buy it over here for that price…

I have purchased two of Teresa’s cookbook and I have made her Holy Cannoli Cupcakes – they are amazing!!!

I just looked on the QVC website. This product is packed in DRY ICE, which explains the cost. When I order fresh croissants or other food from Williams Sonoma, Dean and Delucca or Sur la Table, a lot of the cost is for fresh food packaging. For a fact, if you did want fresh cannoli, you cannot get them in Califonia wine country- so mail order it is.

Hey guys be fair. Kpasta is what we call a foodie. Everyone likes something and apparently her thing is very fine food. If she’s in wine country I can see how she spends that cash on great food fresh from another coast (or as fresh as it can be). From you guys reactions I would die before I told you how much I’ve spent on some food. It wasn’t cheap but it was DIVINE!!!

Indigo

I consider myself a foodie as well, and spend good $ on good food. Foodies would never buy cannolis off of QVC. They would spend the money to travel to a place known for their fresh, homemade cannolis and eat them there, and then order from that place and have it shipped to them from then on afterwards. Just sayin’.

socalsoccer

I don’t really care how much anyone spends on food or anything else. I was just an observation. Dry ice has nothing to do with the QVC price.

The only thing I order that requires dry ice is the cheese chunks my hubby uses for his homemade summer sausage. The shipping is nuts (though that is included in Kathy’s, but the dry ice might not be there anymore) and we only order in the winter as I live in Phoenix.

kpasta would NEVER EAT cannoli. Northern Italians, do not consider that Italian food. Further, as I do make my own pasta, sausage, wine, prociutto, pesto, have a garden etc., I know all about food. What I do not know is how you women think you are experts, when clearly, there is a market for this kind of food, AND Kathy has found her spot- which all of you do not like, because it is her. So go ahead, and stick to Teresa’s prosecco and fake juice, and those famous cook books. I find it transparent that you buy things and… Read more »

Fake Cookbooks> ? Exactly how do you Fake a cookbook. The recipies are either great! Or they’re not! And all of hers are great, and obviously made the OLD ITALIAN way. I’m northern italian as well, and I recognize a lot of things in her cooking from the way my grandmother and mother cooked. Sure, in the north we don’t use as much Oregano, we use Thyme and Rosemary, Italian Parsley and Garlic… other than that, her recipies are completely authentic, and since we see her mother, mother in law and herself making these things for years on the show… Read more »

Obviously, she had marketing people and the company who backs her determine the price point. QVC, the retail giant, felt there was a need as well. Just as Teresa’s books were paperback, again marketing, and the money behind them didn’t think a hardback would be as profitable. Costco buys in bulk, and can sell the same thing under another name at a discount. The point is, I don’t want Teresa’s tacky cookbooks, or Kathy’s southern italian cannolis, but a lot of people do, and these things sell. So, just because you don’t care for Kathy, and I think all the… Read more »

To be quite honest, more than 95% of the Housewives products and books have bombed big time, with Teresa and Bethany both the very big exception. Jac and Caroline’s products, purses, teeth whitening have bombed and that is one of the reasons they were so jealous of Tre’s success. Just because Kathy launched the product does not make it successful as of yet. It is TBD at this point.

The Housewives who are successful in business are popular with the fans. Kathy is a minor part of the show, and she’s boring. STRIKE ONE.

Her product can be found in Costco for 8 dollars instead of 54 dollars. STRIKE TWO

Whenever you see her, you think of rotten fish. STRIKE THREE SHE’S OUT!
