CRUNCHY SWEET PEANUT SPREAD WITH EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL –
Il Colle del Gusto Arachidella will bring out everyone’s inner child! This elevated peanut butter is smooth, creamy, and crunchy all at once. Crunchy pieces of candied peanuts punctuate a silken sweet peanut cream.
Extra virgin olive oil proves itself an ideal partner for the nuts, lending incredible smoothness while allowing the peanut’s nutty sweetness to shine.
Arachidella and sliced apples or bananas on a slice of rustic Italian bread is snack perfection. It is delicious swirled into vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Use as a filling for peanut butter cookie sandwiches.
GIRAUDI GIANDUIOTTI – ASSORTED MILK & DARK CHOCOLATES –
Gianduiotti (singular “gianduiotto“) are classic chocolates from the Piemonte region of Italy. Renowned chocolatier Giraudi makes their gianduiotti according to an old family recipe, and in doing so, they embrace their homeland and pays homage to their own traditions.
Carefully selected Tonda Gentile Trilobata Hazelnuts are roasted and puréed in-house before being blended with milk or dark chocolate to create this smooth, melt-in-your mouth confection. The high content of hazelnuts (40%) make Giraudi’s gianduiotti inimitable and they were awarded at the International Chocolate Awards 2017 and 2018.
The ingot-shaped chocolates are individually wrapped in silver or bronze foil and packaged in a clear acetate cube.
SICILIAN ORANGE BISCUITS (BUTTER COOKIES) –
Handmade butter cookies prepared according to family recipes by Marchesi di San Giuliano. These delicate, crisp biscotti (biscuits or cookies) are full of chunks of estate-grown candied orange peel. The sweet wafer-thin pastry is balanced by the slight bitterness of the orange.
Best enjoyed with tea or as a light treat at the end of a meal.
