Rigoni di Asiago Review and Giveaway

I love Hazelnut and I love some rich chocolate. Rigoni di Asiago was nice enough to let me try their own spread called "Nocciolata" Organic Hazelnut and Chocolate Spread. It's made with top quality raw ingredients:
Italian Hazelnuts
Cocoa and Cocoa Butter
Cold pressed sunflower oil
Naturally flavored with Vanilla
Cane sugar and skimmed milk


The spread is Gluten Free, USDA Organic Certified, and Kosher-Dairy Certified.
It tastes good on bread, with pretzels, or if you're like me with a spoon! Every taste is some chocolately deliciousness.



The company has been around since the 1920's. Here's a little bit about their history: "The story goes back nearly 100 years ago with the Rigoni grandmother, Nonna Elisa, whose craftsmanship and love of nature so greatly influenced her family. After the ravages of the First World War, the young widowed mother of nine hungry children used her late husband’s beekeeping skills to start her own little activity with her eldest sons, Mario and Paolo. Mountain folk know their honey and word quickly spread that Elisa’s was by far the best in the area. By the 1930s Apicoltura Rigoni had already become an established household name all over Italy. Today, Nonna Elisa’s family run the company inherited from their grandmother with her same enthusiasm and love for nature.
The company really started to expand both in product range and on the map in 1979 when Rigoni were the first to introduce monofloral honey to the Italian market. A single floral honey has a distinct and easily identified flavour which was immediately appreciated by consumers. During the mid 90s, organic farming was increasingly spoken about and it was the Rigoni’s innate respect for nature which convinced them to be one of the first companies to go organic and merit the Certified Organic label. Encouraged, confident and ready to tackle new challenges, the family looked to another tradition to increase their product range. They created Fiordifrutta, made with 100% organic fruit and sweetened with apples rather than sugar. In 1997 the company took on the name it has today: Rigoni di Asiago. The same year saw the successful launch of Nocciolata spread and the natural sweetener made from apples used in Fiordifrutta was given its own brand name, DolceDì. Just 10 years later, market research figures testified that Fiordifrutta was the No.1 leading jam in Italy."
