Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week.

I enjoyed this "curvy" Nocciolotto bar from Caffarel (Luserna San Giovanni, Italy) with
"whole crunchy hazelnuts covered with... Gianduia chocolate."

Gianduia or gianduja is a creamy chocolate and hazelnut blend that evolved into spreads and fillings for chocolates and confections.

Caffarel ("Eccellenza Piemontese") was founded in the 1800s in Turin -- in the piedmont (foot of the mountains) region of northern Italy. This is the area where great gianduja* was born. And Caffarel helped make it so. More recently Caffarel became a subsidiary of Lindt and Sprungli (Switzerland).
