A world of Chocolate ♥

Last Saturday, a wonderful event took place in a town near our living zone. Actually they organised it once a year. Chocolate lovers absolutely cannot miss this appointment because I'm talking about "Chocolandia", a huge market where you can find so many fabulous forms of sweets made of chocolate! The vendors come from different places in Italy and they offer you particular home-made sweets.

I, hubby and our son arrived there in late afternoon, the busiest time perhaps, and we slipped into the crowd. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to take more pictures because I didn't want to obstruct the path. Below are some pictures of those delights.

The highlight of the event was the 215-metre long "Salame di Cioccolato", the special recipe of chocolate in salame shape to be sliced, produced by the local community. I didn't know how to capture the lenght and the clear image of the salame at the same time, also because it was well covered for the hygiene. What I got is just below.

And what you're going to see is the favorite one of my son. "Frittella" with nutella: a kind of hot and fried pastry, covered with white sugar and stuffed with nutella! What more would he want?

Not only it was the best chance to try numerous styles of chocolate and to see rare sweets and items , it was also the best occasion to buy beautiful, creative and yummy Christmas presents for your friends and family ◕‿◕


  1. Whoa! the chocolate salami looks epic. There was a similar festival in Bologna this week, but they were missing out on the 215-metre salami : )


    1. It seems chocolate salami is always the protagonist in this gender of festival ;) I love this period a lot, can't wait to see other markets and fairs!
