Wikipedia: Ferrero Rocher
Ferrero Rocher is a spherical chocolate produced by the Italian chocolatier Ferrero SpA.

History
The Ferrero Rocher was introduced in 1982 in Europe. Shortly after release production was halted due to a problem with label printing. Michele Ferrero, the credited inventor, named the chocolate after a grotto in the Roman Catholic shrine of Lourdes. Rocher comes from the French and means rock or boulder; the main grotto at the Lourdes shrine is in the rock of Massabielle.
