Premium Dark Chocolate Nougat With Almonds
This dark chocolate and almond nougat from the Premium line features packaging made in wooden boxes, giving it an exclusive and unique character.
Alicante nougat has a classic texture, so it is crisp and crumbly, which maximizes the quality of the Marcona almond. The Consejo Regulador de Jijona y Turrón de Alicante is in charge of verifying that all requirements are met for nougat to receive this designation.
Nougat is a typical Christmas holiday dessert, but the Spanish company has given it a new identity, transforming it into an everyday dessert that can be enjoyed at any time of day throughout the year.
How is Alicante nougat produced?
According to the specifications for Alicante Nougat, almonds must be at least 46% (this one by Pablo Garrigòs Ibànez goes as high as 68%) and are lightly toasted in rotating drums, called boixets: once the desired toasting point is reached, diluted egg white and rosemary honey are added until a fluid and compact amalgam is created. Then the resulting mass is poured into circular molds and covered with wafers: delicacy and crunchiness for a unique and incomparable product.
