We may be sour, but we know our sweets.

I have never quite had anything like it. The nougat really is great, crispy, crunchy, sweet with a touch of honey flavor. There is almost no tooth stick unlike what I was expecting and the fantastic almonds are muey plentiful and somehow sweet – I think – could be the nougat. They boast a 63% almond content. There is a weird paper on both sides of the bar – something like rice paper – but it didn’t really bother me.
