Favuzzi chocolate and hazelnuts cream
A rich, velvety spread with an intense hazelnut taste, enhanced with the bittersweet notes of dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla.
Start your day on the right foot by spreading our chocolate-hazelnut cream on toasted bread, pancakes or a piece of Favuzzi panettone. It is delicious as a topping for a banana or strawberries, yogurt or ice cream, or to add a luxurious touch to various desserts. You can also enjoy it by itself, right out of the jar!
We created this cream as an homage to the chocolate spread that indulged the sweet tooth of generations of children around the world! Our chocolate-hazelnut cream is even richer and contains only healthy ingredients: Sicilian hazelnuts, low-fat cocoa powder and extra virgin olive oil (unlike the palm oil used by our competitors).
Nino Marino and Vincenzo Longhitano were only 20 years old when they founded their confectionery business in the Sicilian town of Bronte. Fifteen years later, their sweets and spreads are still made by hand, with local ingredients such as a hazelnut variety from the Nebrodi Mountains, following traditional methods.
Bronte, Sicily, Italy.
History and anecdotes
Chocolate-hazelnut spreads are believed to have been inspired by gianduia, a chocolate and hazelnut paste invented in Turin, Italy, in the 19th century. Since the blockade ordered by Napoleon I against the United Kingdom led to an increase in the price of cocoa, Turin confectioners had the idea to blend it with finely ground hazelnuts.
Sugar, low-fat cocoa powder 25%, hazelnuts 15%, milk powder, non-hydrogenated vegetable fat (sunflower oil, cocoa butter), extra virgin olive oil, emulsifier: soy lecithin, natural vanilla flavours.
Keep away from heat and humidity.
Bronte pistachio specialists Vincente owe their success to this tiny nut growing on the steep volcanic rock slopes of the Etna, in Sicily, since ancient times. It was the first Arab colonizers who progressively perfected and refined its cultivation. Vincente’s products owe their exceptional quality to carefully selected raw ingredients, to carefully crafted details and to jealously guarded secret recipes!
