The birth of gianduia among the Piedmontese is well known, but perhaps not everyone knows that the idea of replacing cocoa beans with Tonda Gentile delle Langhe hazelnuts was not exactly a creative idea of some Turin confectioner who wanted to try new flavours, but rather a response to the difficult availability of cocoa due to Napoleon's economic blockades against the British colonies, the first suppliers of the precious seed.

The name "gianduja" is a tribute to the Turin mask that first distributed the new chocolate during Carnival in 1865, also "disguised" by the paper covering it, an absolute novelty in traditional confectionery.

The queen of this dessert is therefore the Tonda Gentile hazelnut, which replaces wheat flour, for a gluten-free product.
