Cannoli Clash: DeFalco's Italian Deli vs. Something Sweet Bakery

Hey, where can you get a good cannoli (or a cannoli at all?!) in this town? Maybe it's the lack of a Little Italy enclave or perhaps cupcakes just took hold of the dessert market too quickly, but we absolutely love this classic Sicilian pastry and think it deserves more love than it gets in the Valley.

For this battle we compare a classic Italian preparation to a one with a seasonal twist: the regular (as opposed to their chocolate shelled) cannoli at DeFalco's and the eggnog cannoli at Something Sweet Bakery. Which "little tube" of creamy goodness will kick the competition?
