The super-sized gelato version of the hazelnut-heavy Italian chocolate ticks all the Valentine’s Day boxes. There’s even a vintage Bacio love note from Frank Sinatra’s 1962 collaboration with Baci, hidden inside!
An Italian story since 1922 the original Baci (which means “kisses” in Italian) was and is still created by Italian chocolate company Perugina and is made using gianduja chocolate layered with chopped hazelnuts, topped with a whole roasted hazelnut, and coated in dark chocolate.
Our limited-edition ode to the classic chocolate – a giant frozen “Baciami” (a passionate way to say “kiss me” in Italian) – is available for pre order just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The dessert includes hazelnut gelato, Frangelico hazelnut croccante, ‘Better than Nutella’ gelato, gianduja ganache, hazelnut dacquoise and just like the original, it’s coated with dark chocolate and wrapped in silver foil with a love note hidden inside.
The gelato cake is available for pre order while stocks last for $28 each.
