On Carrubo and Sciuscella are tributes to a fruit which has been a symbol of the history of Ischia Island, almost forgotten for one century: the carob, or in Neapolitan dialect ‘Sciuscella’. Carob was defined as ‘the chocolate of the poor’, fed the inhabitants of Ischia, in the most difficult moments of our history. It has some healthy properties and a taste similar to chocolate. The illustrations on the labels of the two products take inspiration from the Italian cinema of the 1950s, a period to which Carob was still part of our lives, along with the beauty and simplicity of those times.
