|“||It's not really a sting. It's more of a mild, wet slap.||”|
— One brave child, The Grim Grotto
Tagliatelle is a type of Italian noodle and grande means 'big' in Italian. One of the Caligari Carnival workers created it. It is a long noodle that is used for whipping people, including children and freaks. It is unknown if it is edible.
It is later used by Esmé Squalor to whip the children who are working on the Carmelita, particularly when she forces them to listen to Carmelita Spats' song; though this is threatening, a brave child mentions that it doesn't hurt murch, just feels strange. Fernald borrows the noodle as a cover for him, Fiona, and the Baudelaire orphans to escape.
In the Netflix adaptation, Esmé uses it during "The Carnivorous Carnival". Sunny steals it so that Violet can use it as a replacement fan belt to repair the roller coaster.
