Golosi di Salute
Hailing from Monticello d’Alba, Piemonte, Chef Luca Montersino created “Golosi di Salute” (literally translating to “gluttons for health”), as a way to offer healthier pastry and confection experiences to consumers. While his passion for the selection of such alternative ingredients as olive oil, and cold-pressed sunflower oil in lieu of butter, agave, honey and brown sugar, instead of refined white sugar, results in “healthier” sweets, flavor is never compromised when creating these delectable treats.

In 1922, Luisa Spagnoli invented the perfect little chocolate with a message of love hidden inside for her secret lover, Giovanni Buitoni. The little chocolate was fittingly named Baci, Italian for "kisses."

Today, like long ago, each loving phrase is different like the shape of each Bacio.
