La Florentine Traditional Italian Confections
A Cento Foods brand, La Florentine shares the magic of traditional Italian desserts with customers around the world. The Renaissance-inspired packaging design creates a delightful air of nostalgia surrounding classic Italian sweets like torrone candy, panforte, and panettone cake. La Florentine products are beloved as Italian Christmas desserts, but can of course be enjoyed any time of year!
Torrone are Italian nougat candy bars made with whipped egg whites, sugar, and honey. They can be hard or soft nougat, and typically also contain nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, and pistachios. La Florentine also produces chocolate covered torrone candy bars. Find them in singles (the perfect size for stocking stuffers!) or in large boxes.
Panettone & Panforte
Two other traditional Italian Christmas desserts produced by La Florentine are panettone (a soft, sweet, airy bread with raisins and candied fruit) and panforte (a flat, chewy cake made of fruit and nuts). These two pillars of Italian sweets are must-haves for the holiday season, but are also wonderful traditional Italian desserts to enjoy with a cup of coffee after a lovely meal. La Florentine is also known for candied chestnuts — another Christmas favorite!
