German term or phrase: Mürbebrotstange
"Mit ihnen fängt Italien an: mit Grissini, Lingue und den typisch italienischen Mürbebrotstangen."

For a Switzerland-based importer of Italian foodstuffs. In a product catalogue, under the heading "Backwaren", to be translated into UK-EN. No pictures, unfortunately.

If I've understood the first part of the sentence correctly, these would all be breads that can be eaten before the main course. According to Langenscheidt: Mürbeteig = shortcrust pastry, Mürbeteiggebäck = pastry made with shortcrust pastry and mürbe (adj.) = crumbly or brittle. Mürbekuchen = shortbread (i.e. sweetened and probably not suitable as a starter).

I'm thinking "Italian crisp breadsticks" at the moment - but isn't that the same description as grissini?

Any help appreciated.

Asker: Thank you very much for all your research, Andres! I wouldn't have thought of using the term "rusk" - to me that's a baby food item or filler for sausages, but your references might change my mind.

neutral  ElliCom: No.. muerbe means tender, chewy and not at all crispy. So it's not Zwieback or biscotti at all! But great research.
