## New Candy from Italy

Italy is known for its delicious gelato, espresso, and now - its unique holiday candies. This season, we have imported some special treats that originate from different regions across Italy.

The tartufi candies are a decadent combination of chocolate, nuts, and liqueurs. These truffle-shaped candies often contain hazelnuts or almonds on the inside with a chocolate shell. Traditional Italian tartufi get their kick from brandy or sambuca, but our shop offers kid-friendly versions too. These rich, melt-in-your-mouth candies are a popular gift and dessert across Italy.

Amaretti cookies are another Italian classic. These small rounds are made with sugar, egg whites, and almond flour, creating a texture that's crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Their natural almond flavor makes them the perfect accompaniment to coffee or dessert wines. While versions with liqueurs exist, our amaretti are kid-friendly with just a hint of almond extract.

Italians also love their hard candies, which we've imported in flavors like tangerine, lemon, and strawberry. These fruity candies deliver an intense hit of flavor in a portable, candy-jar friendly form. They continue to be a nostalgic treat for Italians young and old.

Be sure to stop by our shop this holiday season to try these authentic Italian candies and more imported confections. From tartufi to amaretti, you’ll find new sweet discoveries from across the Italian countryside.
