The Gianduiotti

The Gianduiotto stems from the imagination and substance inspired by the native chocolate masters of Turin, forced to come to terms with the Napoleonic blockade restrictions and lack of cocoa circulating in Europe. They simply tried out a product in their mixture found in abundance in the area: the Tonda Gentile Hazelnut of the Langhe. The new chocolate was ready for the Carnival of 1865 and was distributed on the city’s streets by Gianduja, the Turin mask that gave it its name. Today, the Gianduiotto is a typical, identifiable and protected product of Turin and is known all over the world. Galup offers it in its original recipe and in the dark chocolate variations as well as mini format.
