About Caffarel
Caffarel, a 200-year old company located in Turin, Italy, enjoys the undisputed reputation of creating Italy's finest chocolate, and has become world-renowned as the very first company to create the indulgence gourmands call Gianduia. Way back in 1856, Gianduia was born out of necessity, since cocoa was rationed during the turbulent years that followed the Napoleonic wars. Craftsman from the Piedmont region where the world's best variety of hazelnuts are grown circumvented the problem by blending precious, exotic cocoa with hazelnuts.

Gianduia, an intense mélange of milk chocolate and hazelnuts, is now a classic form of European chocolate, made by only the finest chocolate producers. By using 28% - 30% Piedmont Hazelnuts, Caffarel achieves a unique melting temperature and a velvety texture to complement the gianduia flavor. Produced by extrusion (dropped onto plates), without the limitations imposed by moulds, Caffarel's Gianduia has a special consistency that is not too soft and not too hard, and a rich flavor that simply cannot be duplicated.

The exclusive recipes created by the artisans at Caffarel's factory are, to this day, one of the secrets that sets Caffarel apart. Its continued appeal is based on the important emphasis they place on combining the handpicked, select ingredients from all over the world and hand-made craftsmanship with the latest technologies. Today, Gianduia has become quite useful in the kitchen. It is used to flavor a host of desserts, confections, pastries, and even ice cream.

So cute and wonderful chocolates April 6, 2016
Reviewer: Carol Thompson from Fort Worth, TX United States  
Amazing little Easter egg treats--chocolates in different flavors--all milk confection--wish there were some dark chocolates mixed in there too--but, overall what a wonderful treat.

Festive Easter Eggs March 30, 2016
Reviewer: Claire VanCott from middle island, NY United States  
Very festive with its colored tissue paper wrapping. The chocolate egg is good.  Just thought it was expensive for the size and amount of eggs in the pkg.

caffarel papillon easter eggs March 28, 2015
Reviewer: mary aiello from oakland, CA United States  
the caffarel papillon eggs are lovely - a decorative addition to any basket or table setting.  Most people would label the chocolate excellent, but I'm extremely particular when it comes to chocolate, so I've called "good".  However, I'd buy them again just for the novelty (and the chocolate, because it is good).
