PARSIPPANY, N.J., US – Kinder Bueno, the crispy creamy chocolate bar with a taste experience that defies expectation, is taking National Coffee Day (Sept. 29) to new heights by launching “Coffee Gets Bueno” with Chef and Content Creator Nick DiGiovanni, bringing to life the first-class experience of pairing your favorite coffee with Kinder Bueno.
When coffee gets Bueno, life gets Bueno and on National Coffee Day, Kinder Bueno and Chef Nick DiGiovanni show the world how to enhance their coffee rituals by paring coffee with Kinder Bueno, turning ordinary coffee moments into extraordinary ones. Kinder Bueno’s unique flavor and texture combination allows you to experience an elevated coffee moment like you haven’t ever before – whether it’s an afternoon pick-me-up or an after-dinner treat with friends.
“Kinder Bueno has the power to take our everyday coffee moments and spontaneously turn them into memorable ones,” explains Chef Nick DiGiovanni. “The smooth texture and rich, acidic notes in coffee pair wonderfully with a creamy, chocolatey, hazelnutty treat like Kinder Bueno, making your coffee experience more premium, leaving you with a heightened sense of positivity.”
Chef Nick DiGiovanni is explaining a Kinder Bueno Moment, when life gets Bueno by having a memorable moment you didn’t see coming. To create a Kinder Bueno moment out of your coffee ritual, Chef Nick DiGiovanni suggests these perfect pairing tips:
Uplevel Your Lattes: A traditional latte is 1/3 coffee and 2/3 milk but that’s the beauty of food, it’s meant to be fun and open to creative interpretation. One of the easiest, and frankly tastiest, ways to enhance your latte experience is by pairing it Kinder Bueno, because of its unique flavor- texture combination.
- Pairing Notes: Kinder Bueno’s crispy wafer is the perfect contrast to the light, frothy latte, while it’s milk chocolate flavor and creamy hazelnut filling pair nicely with espresso as well as popular seasonal flavors like pumpkin spice, nutmeg and allspice.
The Right Way to Rocks: For the perfect iced coffee, it’s all about the ice cubes for me. Two large, square cubes keep it nice and cold without watering it down —not to mention aesthetically pleasing. Add two Kinder Bueno bars alongside it and you’ve created the ideal afternoon pick-me-up.
- Pairing Notes: Kinder Bueno’s light texture and hazelnut filling enhance the bright notes and crispness of the iced coffee.
Kinder Bueno Measuring Tool: Last year, when we were all making whipped coffees in quarantine, I was always asked about how much milk, instant coffee, sugar and water, to use when making a classic Dalgona Whipped Coffee Drink. Kinder Bueno’s four separate quadrants acts as the perfect measuring system for an 8oz Dalgona Whipped Coffee.
- Pairing Notes: Kinder Bueno’s rich chocolate and hazelnut flavors stand up nicely to the bitter notes from the instant coffee, while the smooth filling is a great complement to the foam topping.
Go-To Night Cap: Nothing caps off a great meal with friends better than a cup of espresso and Kinder Bueno Mini.
- Pairing Notes: Kinder Bueno’s smooth milk chocolate complements the acidic notes in the espresso while leaving a sweet, chocolatey taste on the palate.
Bonus – Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans Twist: We’re used to chocolate covered espresso beans, but you can easily elevate this experience by chewing the actual beans (decaf or regular) followed by Kinder Bueno for a delicious pairing that doubles as a quick energy boost.
“Kinder Bueno continues to see unprecedented growth since hitting the US market in 2019 and we’re excited to bring the Kinder Bueno taste experience to coffee lovers on National Coffee Day,” explains Rosa Veliz, Sr. Brand Manager for Kinder Bueno US. “Chef Nick DiGiovanni elevates routine coffee moments with Kinder Bueno pairings that are sure to spark Bueno Moments anywhere and any way you take your coffee.”
