Nonni's Biscotti Review and Giveaway

There's nothing more delicious than a crunchy biscotti filled with almonds and
chocolate. Take a moment out of your day to indulge in a sweet treat and have a moment for yourself.



Nonni's Biscotti grew out of true Italian tradition. In the little town of Lucca, Italy along narrow cobbled lanes surrounded by elegant piazzas, our Nonni (an endearing term for Grandma) made biscotti to share with family and friends. When Nonni came to America, almost a century ago, she brought the family recipe with her.

To this day, the same family recipe using real eggs, butter and gourmet bittersweet chocolate is still used to give our biscotti a light, crunchy texture that is delicately sweet. Our devotion to quality ingredients has been the foundation for the growth and continued success of the company, and the key reason Nonni’s Biscotti is the number one selling biscotti in the country.

Nonni's recently emerged with a new product, Biscotti Bites. These bites come in the delectable flavors of almond dark chocolate, caramel milk chocolate, and classic almond. The bites are a great mini version of the real thing. Toss the bag in your car for a treat on the go, or have it ready in your office drawer for a midday pick-me-up. These are a great companion to a glass of milk, your favorite coffee beverage, or even a nice glass of wine. They are perfect for enjoying by themselves too.

The regular full sized Nonni's biscotti are available in the flavors of caramel latte, ciccolati (classic original biscotti dipped in gourmet bittersweet chocolate), decadence (dark brown chocolate almond biscotti dipped in gourmet bittersweet chocolate), limone, orginali, toffee almond, triple milke chocolate, and turtle pecan. These biscotti's are individually wrapped for easy snacking on the go.

I received an assortment of Nonni's products to try. I'm in biscotti bliss!


I haven't tried all of the flavors yet, but of course I had to try the chocolate ones for my signature sweet tooth. I tried the decadence full-sized biscotti and the caramel milk chocolate biscotti bites.

The biscotti bites are adorable mini versions of the real thing. They are mini pieces of chocolate heaven. You can have 3 bites for 120 calories. That is actually really good because you are satisfied after the 3 cookies and don't feel guilty about indulging. Any other sweet treat would be a lot more than 120 calories. The biscotti was extremely fresh and tasted like it was just baked and purchased at a coffee shop! The biscotti was surely a little piece of heaven. The milk chocolate was sweet and had a wonderful flavor. The biscotti had a very satisfying crunch to it and the caramel made it slightly chewy. The flavors did not mask each other at all like some biscotti's do. When I tasted the crunchy treat, I could taste all of the flavors at once, but there was a balance between them all. All of the flavors combined together to make it a simply delicious treat. This would be great dunked into your favorite cup of coffee or paired with a nice glass of white wine for an evening treat.

The full sized biscotti was simply fantastic and seriously the best biscotti I've ever had. This biscotti was a dark brown chocolate almond biscotti dipped in gourmet bittersweet chocolate. The entire decadence biscotti was 100 calories which I was really impressed by because it's quite large for 100 calories. The sweet treat looks fanastic. It is a beautiful dark chocolate color and you can see the bits of almonds inside. Upon first bite it is simply fantastic. It is crunchy, light, airy, and everything you could want in a biscotti. The chocolate is sweet and very wonderful and the crunch of the biscotti along with the crunch of the almonds will rock your world! The texture of the biscotti is awesome and it is the perfect shape for dunking in a nice caramel latte or espresso. Each bite was better than the first and this biscotti was truly decadent. :)
