Baci are chocolates with an irregular and rounded shape, stuffed with praline, and hazelnut chips and covered with dark chocolate. They a produced by Perugina in Perugia.
It all started in 1922 when Luisa Spagnoli created a special chocolate: she kneaded the chopped hazelnuts, added a whole hazelnut and covered it with the unmistakable Luisa Dark chocolate. Given the shape similar to the knuckle of a hand, she decided to call it “Cazzotto”. Everything in this chocolate was perfect, except the name.
For this reason, at the suggestion of her beloved, she renamed it with a name that was equally sweet and irresistible: Baci Perugina.
