The origins of Gianduja (pronounced jan-DOO-yah) go back to 1861 when after rationing of Cocoa during the turbulent years following the Napoleonic wars, a cash-strapped Italian government increased import taxes on certain goods including cocoa beans, threatening the livelihoods of many Italian chocolatiers. Ever resourceful, artisans from the Piemonte region, led by Pier Paul Caffarel, began to try recipes with a higher proportion of local ingredients, including the famous Piemontese hazelnuts IGP and, realizing it was the perfect match, Gianduia was born!
The Gianduia Hazelnut Chocolate 1865 Astuccio from Caffarel contains individually wrapped Classic Gianduia 1865 chocolates, made by combining high-quality cocoa from Ecuador and Ghana and Piemontese hazelnuts.
