Newget - 3 flavors

A Brief History of Newget

Well, we thought we’d give you a brief history of nougat!  Basically, the history of nougat is rich, old and European.

Traditional nougat, or as it’s called in some parts of Europe, turron, is a confectionary made from sugar or honey, roasted nuts, egg whites and sometimes dried fruit.   Traditionally a Christmas time treat, the name turron is derived from the Latin word torrere, which is “to toast”, an expression of honor and goodwill, a fitting Christmas time sentiment.

Today, here in Edmonton at The Newget Kompany, the nougat we make is a little different from its European ancestor.  Though we’re still traditional in encouraging the spirit of toasting and sharing, our nougat is a little nutty, a little sweet, and certainly a highly delectable chocolate confectionary.  We start with a base of rich chocolate – white, milk, or dark – and then we add a little panache with different flavour pairings.  The result is rich and decadent, simple, yet one of a kind, and best of all, won’t over power your sweet tooth so you’ll always be ready for more.   Our roster of flavours boasts several combinations made up from dried cranberries and blueberries, cocoa nibs and espresso beans, and marshmallows and cinnamon.   And we’ve always got our taste buds on the lookout for new flavour ideas and pairings.

Unlike the traditional turron, we don’t think you need to wait till Christmas to enjoy nougat.  At the Newget Kompany, our nougat is perfect for any holiday or social event with friends or family or both.  Whether we pair it with coffee, share it over wine, or enjoy it on its own, what could possibly express more goodwill than sharing chocolate with good friends?

Indulge year round.
