Product Review: Sugar and Spice Nougat Candy from Taiwan CLOSED5/11/2013 11:57:00 pm
Just a quick post on a particular Taiwanese nougat candy called Sugar & Spice that I was sent for review by the distributor in Singapore. Thought I'll share it with you guys in case you're looking for a gift for a friend with a sweet tooth! I've also seen this when I visit Taipei recently in 2016 at a departmental store, and its still a huge hit especially among the Chinese tourists!
I'm not saying this just because they were sent to me for review, but honestly if I were to try it when I'm in Taiwan or in SG, I would have bought some myself.
Why? Because the nougat is different from the normal nougats you would expect. The milk is more similar to the White Rabbit candy type, though not as cloying or artificial. The nuts inside are fresh and crunchy, and the nougat itself chewy without being tough. It's so addictive I have to stop myself from eating all of it at once!
According to the distributor, it is made with:
Freshly handmade from French unsalted butter from Normandy, milk powder from France and crispy California almonds, a special preparation technique gives these flavourful milk nougats a creamy, soft and chewy texture that are very different from the nougats currently available. No preservatives, additive or coagulant is added during the production process.
To order some and get it delivered, visit their website at http://www.sugar.com.tw/en/tw - they send it to Singapore, Malaysia, China, Australia, Japan. For 500g it is currently only 350 TWD, which is about S$15!
