Welcome to Day #4 of European Chocolate Vacation Theme Week.
Today's Sicilian Pistachio - Milk Chocolate (36%) and Whole Toasted Sicilian Pistachio (bar) produced by Giraudi S.r.l. (Castellazzo Bormida (AL), Italy) was made in Italy and imported into the U.S. by Manicaretti (Oakland, CA).
This chocolate was part of a family of Giraudi milk chocolate (36% cocoa) and dark chocolate (61% cocoa) bars with nuts. (Other flavors include hazelnut and almond versions of these bars.)
Today's thick, sweet and creamy milk chocolate bar was studded with whole, toasted Sicilian pistachio nuts. Rich sweet chocolate flavor was nicely balanced by a healthy serving (20% of bar content) of these softly crunchy green nuts; and an upbeat touch of vanilla added sweet baked goods-style warmth.
