This fantastic soft nougat from Montélimar comes in a beautiful prestigious box from Angelina Paris!
The success of Montélimar nougat is mainly due to Montélimar’s mayor, Emile Loubet, who was later elected President of France (1899–1906). Thanks to all of the nougat he offered to royalty in France, and to foreign Presidents coming to the Élysée Palace, this delight gained an international reputation!
In 1993, the federation for the Nougatiers applied for Nougat de Montélimar to be designated a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI). The application was granted in February 2003.
