Pinocchio’s cookies




Pinocchio’s cookies, in reality, only saw the light a couple of years ago. The idea began with the observation that although the city of Pescia can boast the paternity of the most famous puppet in the world, it does not exploit its infinite potentials to the full. Right from here Rita Berti took the steps to inaugurate a whole line of cookies (the first official) dedicated to the most translated story in the world.

This is how the “Zecchini di Pinocchio”, the “Promesse del gatto e la fox”, the “Wedges of mastro Geppetto”, the “Baci della fata Turchina”, the “Bocconcini di Mangiafuoco” were born.

“Cookies do not evoke episodes and characters of Pinocchio at random,” he explained

Mrs. Berti – but they represent their salient characteristics. For example, the “Promises of the cat and the fox” appear great, but once in the mouth you realize how in reality they are light, almost inconsistent exactly like the promises of the false friends of Pinocchio
