A heartfelt thank you goes out to our employees after one of our busiest weekends…
Gianduja, one of our most beloved flavors of Mora Ice Cream, is also one of the least well known. Gianduja (pronounced jhe-yan doo yah) is a smooth spread made of chocolate and ground hazelnuts.
Wikipedia elaborates: Gianduja is a sweet chocolate containing about 30% hazelnut paste, invented in Turin by Caffarel in 1852. It takes its name from Gianduja, a Carnival and marionette character who represents the archetypal Piedmontese, a native of the Italian region where hazelnut confectionery is common.
We tell Mora Iced Creamery customers this sweet chocolate ice cream is made with roasted hazelnuts and has a Nutella-like flavor. They tell us, “Yum!”
