One of the Boston gifts I often give California friends is torrone (Italian nougat) freshly made at North End Italian bakeries. They love it! While I like it, I tend to prefer hard nougat, which, until recently, I could rarely find. One lucky day, I bought some at a local gourmet market, loved it and when I went back to buy more, there wasn’t any left.
Since I had taken a photograph of the nougat in its packaging, I decided to look for it on the internet. While I couldn’t find the same brand of candy, I learned a bit about nougat. Here goes-while torrone is soft, turron (Spanish nougat) is crunchy, just the way I like it. The best news is that this website (click here to visit it) sells many different brands of turron. I definitely plan to order some when my candy stash is a little smaller!
