    March 26 - National Nougat Day


    Nougat is a general term that describes an easy desserts class of sweets made with sugar or honey and some type of nut — usually almonds, pistachios, or hazelnuts. It can range from soft and chewy, like caramel, to hard and brittle, but it’s always sticky. The first documentation of nougat goes back to ninth-century Greece, but the confection didn’t gain popularity until it was introduced to France during the seventeenth century. In Spain, nougat is referred to as turrón, and in Italy, it is called torrone. Persians refer to it as gaz, and the Germans call it schmelz-schokolade.
