Producer Information: Centuries ago, young chocolatier Luisa Spagnoli fell deeply in love with Giovanni Buitoni, founder of the Perugina Chocolate Company, and vice versa. The only problem? Luisa's husband was the other founder. Luisa supposedly wrapped romantic notes on the chocolate packaging that she sent to Giovanni.
Inspired by their secret love, she began to make her bite-sized chocolates as delectable as her messages: a silky interior, dark-chocolate exterior enveloping gianduja, a whipped chocolate filling blended with finely chopped hazelnuts, and finished with a whole hazelnut crown. Almost 100 years later, Perugina continues the tradition of Luisa's Baci (Italian for "kisses"), love notes and all.
