Chocolate-lovers, put cremino on your radar - here's why.
It's no secret that the north of Italy has perfected the art of chocolate-making. From gianduja to truffles, Italians have put their distinctive mark on the world of chocolate. One variety of Italian chocolate that deserves its moment in the spotlight is cremino. This is a type of chocolate that is praised for its rich and creamy texture, and literal layers of flavor.
What is cremino? One of Turin’s most iconic chocolates, the cremino is a gorgeously geometric sweet with two layers of soft hazelnut-chocolate gianduja sandwiching a delicate filling. This unique layering can be filled with white chocolate, dark chocolate, among others - all to create a combination that gives the confection depth of flavor, with a velvety texture that melts in your mouth.
Like most of Italy's chocolate confections, cremini (plural of cremino!) originated in Turin, the northern Italian city that is well-known for its rich chocolate-making traditions. The history of cremini dates back to the early 20th century when Italian chocolatiers started experimenting with different combinations of chocolate and nuts. Over time, cremino gained popularity and became a favorite among Italians and visitors alike. These chocolatiers use only the finest ingredients, such as locally-sourced Piedmont I.G.P. hazelnuts, to create these delicious confections.
