Giandujotto - Italian chocolate-hazelnut candy

The NY Times did a feature on these candies this week. They are foil-wrapped, smooth chocolate-hazelnut nuggets. Does any place in Manhattan sell them? Thanks!

  1. Check Chelsea Market Baskets in Chelsea Markets. They sell Leonidas, which make those candies, and they are awesome!

      If Leonidas makes them, then they probably have them at the Leonidas shop at 485 Madison Avenue.

        I went to Chelsea Market and spotted Perugina brand candies in Buon Italia. (Didn't know about Leonidas). Ugh, they were horrible. I think they cut the chocolates with vegetable or butter fat.

      2. if you go to chocosphere.com, they have the candies in several brands, and even a sugar free version by venchi, which are excellent.

          I second Venchi chocolates. Sometimes, you can find them at Saks as well. I usually order them from Chefshop.com. And it's true that the sugar-free version is amazingly good.
