A Guide to Italian Candy

Slideshow SLIDESHOW: A Guide to Italian Candy

Italy's known for its food, of course—pizza, pasta, prosciutto; ciabatta, cannoli, cappellini; you get the idea. But what about candy? No matter what country we end up in, we can't resist browsing the candy aisle at the local grocery stores. So I hit up a Milan supermarket and, besides the expected Kinder Bueno, came away with pocket coffee, instant gelato, a Nutella-breadstick-tea hybrid, and an awful lot more.
