Fill up your mouth with uncountable nougat to make this celebration more enjoyable. Let it be white or black or brown, and it’s the perfect time to treat your sweet tooth with the ever loved confection called Nougat.
National Nougat Day is observed each year on March 26th. This food holiday is in celebration of soft and chewy or sometimes hard and crunchy candy. A chewy confection made with sugar or honey, roasted nuts, whipped egg whites and sometimes chopped candied fruit, used in a variety of candy bars.
Some say nougat has been a sweet treat since ancient Rome. Enjoyed both as candy all on its own or paired with chocolate or other flavorings.
Recipes range from the more traditional nougat made with almonds and honey to those with hints of citrus.
In Italy, they call it torrone. In Spain, a nougat is called turrón. The United States has a version made with corn syrup called divinity.
