2010 Panettone tips - store bought or mail order

Surprisingly th Bimbo panettone I bought at the supermarket was actually very good. It had the texture of King's Hawaiian bread. High on the ingredient list was egg yolks and the richness came through. The candied fruit looked like the usual red, green, yellow citrus peels, but looking at the ingredient list it was colored papaya. It was made with sugar and not HFCS.

I can't say if this is the same recipe in the US. This was made in Peru and distributed thru Central America. It was good enough that I'll probably buy one in the US next year to see how it compares. Seriously, this is the only product I've ever bought with the Bimbo name package that was any good.

So, what pannetone are you buying this year?

Here's some posts from previous years and a few suggestions from them

Bauli pandoro
Panbriacone, a Tuscan artisan panettone-style bread made by Pasticceria Bonci

Emporio Rulli (available mail order outside of California. I highly recommend)
Panera
