A Guide to Italy’s Favorite Cookies
If there is one universal language that everyone speaks and understands, it’s the language of food. The love of food has brought people together for centuries – in fact, it was the search for Indian spices that led Columbus on his journey to discover America. Among food items, desserts have always held a special place in our hearts. Desserts are one of those food items that have a homely feel and love attached to them, making you feel warm and cozy on the inside. This inexplicable love of desserts can be enjoyed with Mulino Bianco cookies and biscuits which promise to bring “Sweet Moments the Italian Way”. Founded in 1974, Mulino Bianco is Italy’s favorite brand, as their products are a stable for Italian homes.
