More than a simple morning ritual, that of coffee and croissant is a business worth over 6 billion euros per year. 49.3% of Italians take coffee in the morning, while two out of ten do not deny themselves a good accompanying croissant. A fortune for our local bars, which see almost a third of their turnover in breakfast.

Although often confused due to the shape, cornetto and croissant are two products with different characteristics and history. Typical of the Italian tradition, cornetto involves the use of eggs and tends to be sweet and flavored; on the contrary, the croissant has no eggs and has a fairly neutral taste, except for the characteristic hint of butter.
