Italian Christmas Basket
A Christmas basket full of Italian products
My boss gave all the collaborators small Christmas gifts. They are all quality Italian products, so I thought I'd show them to you.
The first package contains an infusion: a true speciality of Viropa, a company from Trentino Alto Adige. The mixture does not contain theine but contains selected ingredients including black currant, blackberry leaves, apple and hibiscus flowers.
The other item is a deluxe coffee produced by Pascucci, a company from the province of Pesaro Urbino. Very tasty!
The first sweet is an artisanal turron with almonds, the second is a gianduia chocolate bar Caffarel, a company of the city of Torino. Perhaps not everyone knows, it but Piedmont (a region of which Torino is the main town) is famous for its chocolate and its hazelnuts. The third product is some Lindt chocolates, little ball full of chocolate cream.
This time OMG doesn't mean "oh my god", but "oh my glycemia"!
Rossana, from the Perugina confectionery company, was born as candy in 1926 in honour of Roxanne, the lady loved by Cyrano de Bergerac.
All Italian Grandma had Rossanas in their pockets to distribute to children.
For some time, Perugina has transformed Rossana into this spreadable cream.
An old divine candy treat, the Perugina Rossana is the perfect balance between flavours that include almonds and hazelnut and a creamy milk centre. But it's the sweetest thing I've ever tasted. Indeed I'm not afraid to say that I think it's the sweetest thing ever created in the whole universe.
Taste it and then let me know!
