Falling Star: Ronzoni will discontinue its beloved star-shaped pastina
Pasta maker Ronzoni has announced its tiny star-shaped pastina would be discontinued this month...and foodies on social media are outraged, saddened and disappointed over the news.
The pasta has been a fan favorite for a very long time... often making appearances in soups.
According to Ronzoni, the decision to discontinue pastina was made after its "long-term supplier" said it would no longer be able to make the pasta.
The company said it was unable to find an alternative solution.
The dismay is such that there are petitions for Ronzoni to keep pastina.
As of today, one petition had more than 2,800 signatures.
