Turin Sweet & Chocolate Tour possible tastings
Explore a world of deliciously sweet treats! The food choice depends on season and availability. Be ready for an immersive food experience in a relaxing atmosphere! Here is a list of our Turin Sweet & Chocolate Food Tour possible tastings:
- Gianduiotti: the gianduiotto was born in 1852 in Turin. It is a chocolate shaped as a gold ingot, so by tradition each gianduiotto is individually wrapped in a gold tinfoil. Gianduiotti are incredibly creamy thanks to their unique mixture of Piedmont hazelnuts, cocoa and sugar.
- Bicerin: it is a layered drink made with espresso, drinking chocolate and whole milk or heavy cream. It is served in a large glass. This beverage has been known since the 18th century and was also praised by Alexandre Dumas in his letters.
- Marron glacé: this is a precious confection, originating in Piedmont, where the chestnuts are a very available ingredient in the woods. In fact, a marron glacé consists of a chestnut candied in sugar syrup and glazed. The marrons glacées were invented shortly after the crusaders returned to Europe and they were the favourite dessert of the royal Italian family!
- Pinguino ice cream (“Gelato Pinguino”): in the warm season, you can taste the actual artisan gelato covered in crunchy dark chocolate. The confectionery we chose is the one where the Pinguino was first invented as a local contribution to the Italian tradition in gelato-making.
- Cremino: this is another chocolate originally from Piedmont. It is composed by three layers of chocolate: the outer ones are made with gianduia chocolate, while the inner one can be made with coffee, hazelnut paste, lemon and so much more. Its typical shape is a cube and it’s wrapped in tinfoil with a band which indicates the flavour.
- Artisanal sliced chocolate: directly from a giant chocolate bar, you can choose your favourite taste among sooo many…
- Artisanal gelato: in a family-run gelato laboratory, you will have a look at the equipment used for the preparation of the most loved gelato by Turin people. Of course, you’ll taste it!
- Caffè espresso: an excellent espresso is the best way to end our journey into Turinese patisserie ancient tradition. You’ll have an espresso in one of the oldest and most beautiful cafes in town.
