#179 I miss Italian chocolate candies – 7

Cuneesi al Rhum

the eight wonder of the world.

Black chocolate filled with a cream made of chocolate and rhum,

created by Andrea Arione in Cuneo, in 1923. His café, Bar Arione, is still there

Ernest Hemingway visited Arione’s café in 1954 and purchased a box of Cuneesi al Rhum. Someone says that thanks to his appreciation cuneesi became popular all around the world.

For me cuneesi are part of Feste! I used to buy them at the mercatino di Natale in Pisa every year
