What: Baci chocolate – cherished not only for its premium Italian quality and irresistible taste, but also for the joy it gives those who receive it – is a messenger of emotions that brings people together. With its perfect blend of decadent dark chocolate, layered over a crunchy, chocolaty-hazelnut filling topped with a whole hazelnut, each part of the Baci is created to give people an experience of total affection, indulgence and charm. Every confection is embraced by the brand’s signature “love note”, or sentimental message, now available in English, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Chinese.
About: Baci Perugina’s delightful love story began in 1922 in the medieval Italian city of Perugia, where the chocolate was first formed in the hands of Luisa Spagnoli, the creative genius of Perugina chocolate. With her entrepreneurial spirit, Luisa came up with the innovative idea to create a special new recipe for what is now known across the world as the Baci. The confection was later wrapped in its trademark “love note”, which continues to embrace the chocolate to this day. Legend has it that Luisa Spagnoli used the romantic messages as a way to communicate with her beloved Giovanni Buitoni, the Co-Founder of Perugina.
