Edison, NJ (October 2013) — Perugina, the legendary Italian chocolatier known worldwide for its iconic Baci confection, and Lavazza, Italy’s favorite coffee, have teamed up to give chocolate lovers a chance to win an authentic Italian experience filled with extravagant memories that will last a lifetime. As a culture that sets the standard for excellence in food, fashion, art and design, Italians are known for their passionate pursuit of la dolce vita, the sweet life, and what could be sweeter than winning an all-expense paid trip to Italy during the annual Eurochocolate Festival? That’s why Perugina and Lavazza invite you to enter the “Chocolate Lover’s Dream” sweepstakes and the opportunity to visit one of the world’s most romantic destinations.
The Grand Prize trip for two to Italy will include:
- Roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations, and meals at selected restaurants

- A tour of the Perugina Chocolate Factory – one of the top five destinations for chocolate lovers

For almost 90 years, Baci, which means “kisses” in Italian, have been made in Italy near the historic hometown of St. Valentine. Still made from the original recipe, Baci’s essential ingredient is gianduia, an Italian blend of chocolate and hazelnut cream. The sensuous gianduia center is mixed with finely chopped hazelnuts and crowned with a whole hazelnut. The entire confection is enrobed in silky, dark chocolate. Each Baci is hugged by a special message of love, written in five languages, and tucked inside its silver and blue wrapper.
