As with other highly successful products, the birth of a deliciousness such as Gianduja Chocolate is due to chance, or to say better to the ability of Piedmontese people to make virtue out of necessity. Since the discovery of America the city of Turin has been specialized in the processing of quality chocolate. But the continental stop imposed by Napoleon in the early 1800s, raised the price of products imported from British colonies and therefore also of cocoa. So to remedy the shortage and the high cost of cocoa, Piedmontese confectioners thought of mixing the chocolate with hazelnuts, a precious local product available in large quantity. This improvised mix was the beginning of one of the most popular combinations of tastes that we work to make it irresistible. A big format for one of the most territory-linked tastes.
