“Giant is excited to invite our customers to bring a little part of Southern Italy to their homes and their plates with our exclusive Limoncello line,” said Dean Wilkinson, VP of sales and merchandising at Giant Food. “Many of our customers have bold, adventurous tastes, and this new line is just another example of Giant’s commitment to providing both exciting gourmet options and affordability when they shop for groceries.”
 
According to the company, the products range from Limoncello olive oil, marmalade, and pesto as well as such dessert items as cookies, cakes and ice creams. Non-edible products include Limoncello-scented candles, dish detergent, hand soap and sanitizers.
