Background: The Napoleonic Wars made chocolate scarce in Turin, Italy. Local Piedmont hazelnuts were added to stretch the chocolate. During the 2006 Winter Olympics, The New York Times on February 8, 2006 headlined: “Why Settle for Gold in Turin? The Real Prize is a Darker Delight” – BICERIN. The July 1, 2012 New York Times Travel Section a36-Hours-in-Turin urges breakfast at CafèAl Bicerin to experience the chocolate experience.
