Benvenuto a (Welcome to) Day #1 of Italian Holiday Chocolate Series; and happy holidays to all.
When I think of Italian chocolates, I think about creamy milk chocolates with hazelnuts.
Today's Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts from Perugina* (Italy) honors that tradition. The bar's packaging displayed a gold (Perugina Product of Italy) seal over a green, white and red ribbon—colors from the Italian flag that also seem holiday appropriate.
The relatively thin, smooth milk chocolate bar (no cacao percent listed) contained a tiny sea of roasted and sugared hazelnut bits. While the chocolate was fairly sweet, a faint taste of hazelnut came through.
This gluten free bar was also made without artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
*Perugina, established in 1907, is now part of Nestle (Switzerland). Perugina bars are made in Italy by Nestle Italiana S.P.A.
