This traditional French sweet from the South of France is nothing short of amazing. The name "nougat" comes from "nux gatum", meaning nuts cake in Latin, which became "nougo" in the Provencal dialect, and gave its current name in French: "nougat".
Nougat is a soft candy made with almonds, honey and sugar. This nougat de Montélimar is from Chabert & Guillot, a company that started making nougat in 1848. Since 1996, the term “Nougat de Montélimar” is even a regulated term by the French government! Each manufacturer must respect the traditional proportions (at least 30% almonds & 20% honey) to be able to call their treats a “Nougat de Montélimar”, or they may have to pay a very hefty fine. With our nougat, you can rest assured that you’ll be enjoying one of the most traditional French sweets.
