Combining 30% Nelson grown hazelnuts with cacao, Hogarth create a rich semi-sweet Gianduia bar.
Gianduia is a soft hazelnut chocolate, smooth and velvety due to the hazelnut oil lowering the melting temperature of the chocolate. The resulting experience is a silken mouth feel and lingering roasted hazelnut flavour.
The original Gianduia came from northern Italy. Legend tells us that cocoa supplies were limited during the Napoleonic Wars so a chocolate maker in the Piedmonte region added roasted hazelnuts to supplement the cocoa, and Gianduia was born.
