Everybody knows the famous Nougatine, the bonbon by Venchi with the face of a young turbaned Indian man on the wrapping, but just a few know the fascinating story of this sweet. The unforgettable covered candies saw first light in the early ' 900 , in the period in which the Literary Café was the meeting point of the society and culture of the time. Those were the years in which was famous a writer who has made entire generations of young people dream, inspiring them with the spirit of adventure: Emilio Salgari. The passion for his work was such that in the literary cafes work Salgari were extremely popular. We wanted a product suitable to accompany the reading of the adventures of Sandokan, the Tigers of Mompracem, the pirates of Malaysia and the dreams of the fans of the genre. A product that is trendy, a little glamor, that the face of the little Indian with a turban on the wrapping still evokes the idea of exotic representing the birth of this recipe, with the lure of distant lands and amazing adventures. A few years later , in the late 20s, once forgotten the salgarian glories, the Nougatine was identified by the regime as perfect " gadgets " of military propaganda to the Italian colonization of North Africa, and his fame was then tied to imperialism. Since then the recipe has not changed , but remained faithful to the original : a heart of Piedmont hazelnuts IGP chopped and tied with caramel, coated with dark chocolate. Over the years the wrapping has gradually simplified to get to what we use today, centered on a design that dates back to the 60s. Nougatine is one of the best known products of the brand Venchi, those upon which the history of our company , and still continues to enjoy the success of an evergreen.
