Pan dell'Orso (Bear bread)
Dedicated to the bear, the great mammal becomes the symbol of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park, Pan dell'orso is a soft sweet made with almond paste, barley, butter and "mountain taste" honey.
The sweet is covered with chocolate, making it even more delicious and yummy.
Traditionally prepared by women before their husbands left for the winter transhumance, its name comes from the embroidered version of an old story about a group of shepherds attacked by a bear. It seems that the mammal was attracted by the sweet scent of the Pan dell'orso and assaulted the sacks with the sweets, not the shepherds or the sheep.
Since then, this sweet is called Pan dell'orso (Bear bread) and can be found in two versions: classic and with chocolate drops. A genuine flavor and a long lasting fragrance that make it an excellent food for a snack or for breakfast.
