Chocolate Al Latte Caramel Filling Bar: Made with exquisite care by a second-generation master chocolatier, this chocolate al latte chocolate bar from Guido Gobino is the essence of Piedmont. With a new original and delicious recipe mixing Milk Chocolate, soft Caramel filling, and crunchy Hazelnut grains covered with Dark Chocolate, showcasing the nationally recognized, IGP-certified nocciola Piemontese (Piedmont hazelnut) in all its glory.
Baci di Dama Cookies: Baci Di Dama is a traditional type of filled cookie that means "Lady's kisses" in Italian. The name was given due to its confection, two cookies together with a filled chocolate layer in between - like a sandwich or a kiss. Although there are many variations of Baci Di Dama, the traditional recipe is made with hazelnut filled with chocolate.
Gianduja Assorted Chocolate Box: Made with care by a second-generation master chocolatier, this assortment of Guido Gobino’s signature soft gianduja chocolates known as Tourinot is an exquisite taste of Piedmont. Known as the chocolate capital of Italy, the Piedmont region is home to a number of the country’s top artisans—and Guido Gobino is considered one of the best.
Amaretto Truffles: Sweet truffles are known in Italian as tartufi.
This delicious version mixes milk chocolate and hazelnut pieces with Amaretti cookies - it takes more than 24 hours of careful craftsmanship to make them. Since 1885, this shop in the northwestern Piedmont region has been perfecting the art of candy making, inspired by the nationally renowned hazelnuts that grow there. From roasting and grinding the nuts by hand to letting the truffles rest overnight to ensure just the right smooth texture, every step of the process is guided by tradition and time-honored techniques.
Chocolate-Coated Classic Torrone Bar: Enjoy a sweet taste of Italian tradition with this torrone from Antica Torroneria Piemontese. Since 1885, this shop in the northwestern Piedmont region has been perfecting the art of candy making, and this sweet nougat is the recipe that started it all. Delightfully soft and crumbly, it’s fragrant with honey and roasted hazelnuts, and rolled in dark chocolate for an extra layer of decadence.
Hazelnut & Cocoa Spread: Move over, Nutella—this decadent chocolate-hazelnut spread from Pariani is made with exquisite nocciola Piemonte from the mountainous northern Piedmont region of Italy. Piedmontese hazelnuts are so precious that they are IGP-certified (the official Italian designation for products that are best in a specific region); their orchards are a UNESCO heritage site! More flavorful than your average hazelnut, nocciola Piemonte has a rich, complex flavor that stands up to the dark cocoa in this creamy spread. You’ll find a million and one uses for this spread, or just eat it with a spoon—we'll never tell.
Dolcetto Wine Jelly: This dolcetto wine jelly from Prunotto Mariangela is a unique way to boost your next wine and cheese night! While the Piedmont region is best known internationally for wine heavy hitters such as barolo and barbaresco, it’s also home to a wide variety of native grapes and styles that rarely make it out of the country. Dolcetto is one of the most beloved of these wines, a well-balanced, medium-bodied red that is adored by locals for its easy drinking quality.
Marrons Glaces Cream: Silky, smooth, and deliciously nutty, this chestnut cream from Agrimontana is the pinnacle of the pastry maker’s art. Its simplicity is brilliant, made only with the prized chestnuts that grow in the northwestern Piedmont region, Madagascar vanilla, and cane sugar, pureed on specially calibrated machines until it reaches the perfect luscious texture. The result is an old-fashioned sweet with a delicate, round taste that’s perfect for sweets of all kinds.
