The Continental System -
"The Continental System - imposed by Napoleon in 1806 - prevented British goods from entering European harbours under French control and put a strain on cocoa supplies. A chocolatier in Turin named Michele Prochet extended the little chocolate he had by mixing it with hazelnuts from the Langhe hills south of Turin.Based on Gianduia, Turin-based chocolate manufacturer Caffarel invented Gianduiotto in 1852. 📸: @danielkrieger"
