Slitti Gianera

Award winning!

My level of anticipation to open this jar of chocolate hazelnut spread is a little surprising to me. We get a lot of new food, almost every day, here. Sometimes we request them, and sometimes they shows up on their own.

When we order anything un-tasted, based on our trust in the “maker”, in this case Andrea Slitti, the excitement is based on our memory-of-palate, and so naturally it makes you salivate.

Being a believer that Slitti Noccialata is the be all and end all of all of chocolate sauces in a jar, we were slow on the uptake for Slitti’s Gianera. After first “taste”, we now find them both essential to our “lunch box” for the dessert island.

Upon opening the jar of dark hazelnut spread, you smell the hazelnuts entwined with cocoa. You press your popsicle stick in expecting resistance and instead the smooth, creaminess of the Gianera is not only surprising, it is absolutely delightful! It’s immediately obvious why this hazelnut cocoa spread has won a Gold Bar twice for Best Spreading Cream. 

So many dessert chocolate sauces achieve a cream feel with an addition of fructose syrups and the like. Gianera dark hazelnut spread, on the other hand, is nothing but round and mild Piedmontese hazelnuts from the “Langhe” area, sugar and cocoa! 

It’s not only the spreadable part that makes it a winner, though, it’s the chocolate, hazelnut creaminess that finishes with a nice, dry, dark cocoa finish. If you swirl it delicately against the roof of your mouth, your tongue can feel that the super smoothness of the crema and the flavor of the hazelnuts are so perfectly melded in a harmonious balance of a smile. It's like his Nocciolata, but smoother in texture, and no milk.

Chocolate hazelnut spread has this unusual crave for more desire, yet has the completely satisfying satisfaction for a dessert craving! Slitti Gianera, like Slitti Nocciolata means perfection!

Hazelnut Cocoa Spread Ingredients: Mild and Round Piedmontese Hazelnuts from the "Langhe" area, sugar, cocoa mass, skimmed cocoa powder 10-12%,  (Hazelnuts 52% - min cocoa min. 20% ). Emulsifying agent: sunflower lecithin.
