Eat with your Eyes: Caffarel Milk Hearts

Anyone who has visited this blog regularly knows my fondness for Caffarel, the Italian chocolate maker that invented gianduia. What’s even more remarkable about them is that they don’t just make little nuggets of the stuff, they fashion it into beautiful morsels in clever shapes & wrappers to look at before you gobble them up.

While at the Fancy Food Show I was happy to see the Caffarel booth. Caffarel is devilishly hard to find in the United States, but if they’re planning to distribute directly, maybe things will improve - wider distribution and perhaps the prices will be a little better.

These were simple little milk chocolate hearts, barely larger in diameter than a penny, the chocolate is silky smooth, sweet and milky with a cool melt on the tongue. As far as I’m concerned, the script Caffarel on any candy says I Love You.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Did you get chocolate or candy from your sweetie?

  1. No candy, but I did get a tiny sip of hazelnut coffee.  And then I sniffed a jelly doughnut. 

    My husband spent the entire weekend regrouting and painting my sister’s bathroom.  Which is an act of love greater than candy. 

    I am really looking forward to trying that chocolate raspberry bar and a scotchmallow!  Four more weeks!

  2. I made my girlfriend some truffles.

    It was my first time and they didn’t turn out, to be honest. But she pretended to like them anyway; I suppose that’s love.
