Baci Perugina are still exclusively produced in Perugia, and the recipe remains unchanged: a perfect combination of a fine coating of delicious dark chocolate and a creamy gianduja and chopped hazelnut filling, crowded with a crunchy whole hazelnut. Since its inception, Baci Perugina has captured the imaginative, romantic spirit of the chocolates themselves; and since the 1930s each Baci Perugina is wrapped with a Love Note. It’s no wonder to give a Baci Perugina is to say “I love you” the Italian way.
About the Brand
Baci Perugina has a delightful love story that starts in 1922 in Perugia, a medieval city in the heart of Italy. Baci Perugina, hazelnuts wed to chocolate, let millions of people express their love. It all began when a young chocolate maker created a special bonbon for his beloved. The confection, originally called cazzotto (punch) because its shape evokes a fist, was wrapped in a billet-doux, the Love Note that still today makes Baci Perugina unique. Everything about it was perfect but the name. It was as exquisite and sweet as a kiss, a bacio, in Italian. And so Bacio Perugina became its name. This romantic and very Italian story is the origin of Baci Perugina, icon of quality and symbol of excellence and passion.
