I am a huge chocolate fan so enjoyed trying these Italian chocolates. Baci is a dark chocolate filled with whole and chopped hazelnuts. In Italian Baci means kisses and a kiss if the heart of every love story. Making Baci the perfect gift for saying “I love you the Italian way” Also how pretty is the packaging, I love the combination of blue and silver!
Baci Perugina was created in 1922 in Perugia, a medieval city in the heart of Italy. It all began when a young chocolate maker created a special bonbon for his loved one. It was as exquisite and sweet as a kiss, a bacio, in Italian. This romantic Italian story is the origin of Baci Perugina, icon of quality and symbol of excellence and passion.
I adore the packaging with the dark blue sky filled with stars. Each chocolate is wrapped in silver foil with dark blue stars. Inside each chocolate there is a cute love note which is such a great addition. Here are some of the notes I got:
“Love me for the sake of loving always and forever.”
“Grow old along with me; the best is yet to be.”
Coated in a dark velvety rich chocolate. Each chocolate contains a whole hazelnut at the top. Filled with luxurious milk chocolate and chopped hazelnuts.
They remind me a bit of Ferrero Rocher except the inside is thicker and less creamy. They also come in milk and white chocolate. I really want to try the white chocolates next.
