There is one thing you should not do when you walk in front of Gobino: keep walking. Their chocolate is so nice to look at and so delicious to taste that it always reminds me of the movie Chocolat.
The "Cremini al sale", a wonderful mix of sweet and salty are something you should try at least once in your life. Everything else is also very nice. Yes, nothing is for free at Gobino and sometimes the prices sound really awful...but you will immediately forget about the price as soon as you see the huge smile on the people that will receive your gift :)

I love these little chocolateries where you can discover various surprises instead of repeating always the same choices at the traditional places. There is nothing wrong with traditional houses like Baratti & Milano, Stratta, Peyrano etc., I shop there everytime I'm in Turin and I like the way they contribute to the antiquated atmosphere of the city, but I think Turin desperately needs some fresh air and Guido Gobino is exactly what you're looking for if you have already had enough of locali storici. His chocolates are different, technically very good, they have interesting flavours and the shop itself is charming. And the location is perfect, just two steps from the Egyptian Museum and Palazzo Carignano.
