NOUGAT NIRVANA

Favarger's (see link) chocolate line is already wonderful and of good quality but, as if it would not be enough, with their new line of products, not only do they widen their palet of delicacies, but they also have once again been able to create a perfect product that will rejoice the most demanding sweet tooths around!

This 180 years old Geneva-based cho
colate company never fails to release products that have a immense impact on the consumer, as all their creations are sumptuous and highly emjoyable...

It is one of the best manufacturers around, alongside Lindt,
Villars, Camille Bloch (who also produce Kosher chocolates sold worldwide) and Frey and they deserve a very special mention for their inventiveness, know-how, their simple, yet luxurious packaging as well as their capacity to go forwards, develop their potential and bring some of the best treats/chocolates on the market.

Favarger's latest product to date (see link) has been put on the market only a few months ago and it makes them one of the only Swiss producers of nougat.

Different in texture to the Montélimar and Italian "Torrone" nougats, their recipe is original and unique. Those nougats can be found in three variations: Bourbon-Vanilla Nougat (
Nougat Vanille Bourbon)", "Honey Nougat (Nougat Miel)" and finally "Orange Nougat (Nougat Orange)" with crystallized orange peel...

Until now, I have only tasted one kind, the "Honey Nougats (Nougat Miel)". Let me tell you that those bite-sized nougats are incredibly soft, fluffy, chewy and flavorful. The almonds are crunchy and add a pleasant contrast to the smoothness of this delicate candy. But, what really blew me off my feet was that powerful, fragrant and yummy taste of honey. Wow, it is ever so gorgeous and heavenly!!!

All in all, I warmly recommend you to test their nougats (as well as their delicious chocolates such as "Nougalines" or "Avelines") as I'm sure that, like me, you'll not be able to stop eating them! It is a beautiful discovery that will be on my list of favorites for a very long while. An uncomparable experience!
