No none knows what came first, the chicken or the egg, and just as mysterious is whether the Hershey’s kiss or the Perugina bacio was first. Original or copy, the bacio tastes just as good on the lips, and to celebrate that product the Perugina (originally a Perugian-owned company, now part of Nestlé) is sponsoring a kissing contest.
Pucker up, kids, and have your friends ready to say “formaggio” (actually, Italians in front of a camera say “Cheez!”). Send in your best pictures and, if you happen to be in Perugia, drop by for a tour as well. And remember not to eat too much free candy ahead of time!
