Small Hatbox 316 - Small Hatbox with Prato Biscuits assorted Biscuits, Deseo pure butter Shortbread and Antinori Santa Cristina Vin Santo
The hatboxes have been used by the Biscuits Factory since the 1920s to ship our products.
A common object in homes, up until the 1960s, for the non-accessory use of hats in menswear and womenswear up until that time; Ernesto Pandolfini thought of reusing hatboxes as shipping boxes.
The Small Hatbox 316 contains a 500g pack of Prato Biscuits, two 250g packs, one of dark chocolate Biscuits and one of Piedmont IGP hazelnuts, a box (130g) of delicious shortbread with Pine nuts, Raisins and Hot Pepper di Deseo, and a 375ml bottle of Antinori Vin Santo Santa Cristina.
Since 1858, Biscuits from Prato have been baked daily and packaged by hand one by one, in the classic Blu Mattei bag.
Prepared with flour, sugar, free range eggs, almonds and pine nuts, they do not contain preservatives, animal fats or vegetable fats.
The Dark Chocolate Cookies come out of our oven for the first time in 2013, and the Pistachio and Almond in 2017; these too are hand-wrapped one by one, originally the first in the red bag and the second in the green bag. From 2019 the Dark Chocolate version is packaged in the Blue Mattei bag with the Red label, and the version with Pistachio and Almond in the Blue Mattei bag with the Green label.
In 2019 born the version with IGP Piedmont Hazelnuts, carefully selected for their caliber and their particular and fragrant roasting, packaged in the Blu Mattei bag with a Beige label.
In fact, in June 2019, the Biscottificio Mattei obtained the registration for Brand of 'Colore Unico' of its Blu bags; an important and rare award that definitively gives this historic packaging its uniqueness and belonging to the ancient Biscottificio.
Now all our Biscuits are packaged with the Blu Mattei package, with elements of different colors that distinguish the different tastes.
The dough is the same as Prato Biscuits (flour, sugar, eggs raised outdoors), and instead of almonds and pine nuts, fine drops of dark chocolate are added (85% Cocoa), or Pistachios and Almonds.
