Praline & Nougat
Made with the Finest Hazelnuts & Almonds
The basic ingredients for German Nougat (or pralines) are either Hazelnuts or Almonds, Cocoa Butter and Sugar; some grades also have chocolate or full cream milk powder. Flavor is dependent on the roast of the nuts before they are ground and a light roast has a subtle flavor whereas a strong roast has a stronger flavor. Color is also dependent on the roast but can also be influenced by the addition of chocolate. Lubeca’s nougat has a great smooth melt in the mouth texture which delivers the fantastic roast flavors.
