Little has changed over the years. Following a time-honoured tradition, the product is still handmade and contains only the freshest ingredients. Toasted almonds which form up to half of the product’s weight, are combined with honey, sugar, corn syrup and egg whites at high temperatures in traditional confectioner’s copper bowls.
Using a unique cooking process, no artificial flavouring, colouring or preservatives are used. The craftsman's touch is still required when preparing each individual batch, as cooking times can vary according to ingredients and weather conditions, ranging from eight to nine hours. Our patience is a guarantee of tradition and refinement.
Almonds are key to the quality of our nougat. We select only the best and freshest almonds, inspect every single batch and roast them in-house to our specifications. Almonds account for at least 50% of the product, a much higher percentage than what is commonly used in more mass produced nougat. The result is a product that is not overly sweet and very fragrant.
Golden Bonbon Almond Nougat is a natural product. Our nougat is cholesterol-free, gluten free, trans fat free, Kosher and Halal designated.
Golden Bonbon products are made to order and guaranteed fresh when delivered.
