Sweets

At Eataly, we work with the best brands that Italy has to offer for our selection of candies, cookies, and chocolates. Our artisanal producers are rich in history and incorporate the highest quality regional ingredients, such as IGP hazelnuts from Le Langhe, Piemonte.

GOLOSI DI SALUTE

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

VENCHI

In 1878, Silvano Venchi developed the same recipes for artisanal chocolates that his company continues to use today. He aimed to create an extraordinary experience using only the finest natural ingredients, such as criollo cocoa (the world's rarest and most expensive cocoa), natural vanilla, and the famous Piemontese IGP hazelnut. As a result, their facility earned the rare distinction of “atelier of confectionery art.”

BARATTI & MILANO

Founded in 1858 by Ferdinando and Eduardo Baratti, this renowned sweets company continues to operate in Torino today. Using the best cacao from the Americas and Africa, all products offer equal tastes of the world and Italy. The chocolatiers are official confectioners of the Royal House of Savoy.

NOVI

Since 1903, Novi has been producing choice chocolate in the northwestern region of Piemonte. Their popular ad campaign of the 1980s, “‘Svizzero? No, Novi!,’” put Italian chocolate on the map as an equal to the quality chocolates of Switzerland.

MULINO BIANCO

Founded in Emilia-Romagna in 1974, Mulino Bianco is the voice of Italian tradition shared across the world with their iconic line of sweet products. The bakery’s recipes honor the past in the present, represented by its namesake white windmill. The wholesome symbol represents the Italian countryside, stories passed on from the nonna, and the importance of simple, natural ingredients.

BISTEFANI

Bistefani is an Italian brand synonymous with quality. Their classic Krumiri cookies originated in Alessandria, Piemonte; today, Bistefani preserves their authenticity by using the same recipe and finest ingredients. Made with simple ingredients like butter, eggs, and vanilla, these cookies are perfect for breakfast, especially when dunked in coffee or tea.

CAFFAREL

Caffarel has been making chocolate since 1826 in a small town in the foothills of Torino called Luserna San Giovanni, also the birthplace of Pier Paul Caffarel, founder of this acclaimed confectionery and the first person to prepare gianduja. The origins of gianduja can be traced back to 1861, when, after the turbulent years following the Napoleonic wars, a cash-strapped Italian government increased import taxes on certain goods, including cocoa beans, and threatened the livelihoods of many Italian chocolatiers. Ever resourceful, artisans from the Piemonte region, led by Pier Paul, began to try recipes with a higher proportion of local ingredients, including the famous Piemontese hazelnuts IGP.

STREGA

Strega, Italian for "witch," has been crafting artisanal liqueur in Benevento, Campania, for 150 years. This family-run company also has a passion for chocolate, and their confections filled with Strega liqueur are a special regional treat.

PERUGINA

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." Baci Perugina are still considered the praline of lovers, made with dark chocolate, gianduja, and hazelnuts. Today, like long ago, each loving phrase is different like the shape of each Bacio.
