Baci Chocolates by Perugina “Say I love You The Italian Way”

Baci Chocolates

Baci Perugina Chocolates

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”

Story

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.

Packaging

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.”

Taste

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.

Review of Birthday Meal at Prezzo

February 28, 2016

Had a lovely meal last night in the Italian restaurant Prezzo. Prezzo  has many restaurants across the UK.  I ordered the Calzone il Carltoni which contains pepperoni, seasoned chicken, pancetta, peppers, pomodoro sauce and a blend of cheese. It was really tasty and so filling. I especially like the tomato sauce it comes with as calzone has a lot of dough so the crust can sometimes be a bit dry but with the sauce it was perfect. I also received a free bottle of prosecco as it’s my birtday soon. I love a good freebie and if you or a friend has a birthday soon just sign up here and Prezzo’s will email you a voucher.
