Baci!

My iGoogle art of the day was The Kiss By Francesco Hayez today! Something about this painting looked familiar, so I was amazed when I found the connection was BACI!  [source] When I was traveling abroad my junior year of college, I lived in Perguia, Italy for 6 weeks. I visited the Perugina chocolate factory and it was amazing. I stood next to the largest Baci every made! 
I love that Perugina Baci chocolates took the Kiss painting for their label in the 1920s. I just found a website that sells these Italian treats, called the Wild Cocoa Bean! If you've never had Baci chocolates, you are in for a chocolate hazelnut treat![source]  Each chocolate comes with a sweet love note too!
