Eat with your Eyes: Queens Nougat

This is a little review, but mostly photos today. My husband was in China late last year and brought back some candy for me. One of the products is called Queen’s Nougat. There is no analogue product, as far as I know, in the United States. The candy comes in a simple bag.

Queens Nougat

The little pieces are about two bites and are an interesting construction of different confectionery items. The center is a mix of crisped rice and chocolate cream. It was firm and crispy. The top and bottom layers were firm and chewy nougat and then those were skimmed with a glaze of chocolate.

The whole candy was then wrapped in edible rice paper. The effect was excellent. The crunchy center was offset very well by the smooth and chewy nougat strips. Sometimes I would peel off the rice paper and eat it separately, because it does get a bit pasty, but sometimes I’d eat it all together because it became creamy with the combination of the sugars and chocolate.

If you ever see a hometown candy maker doing something like this, grab a few. It’s a great combo, rather like a decadent all-chocolate Whatchamacallit.

  1. wow, this is really something different!  and the rice paper makes it sound even better because that is my favorite thing about botan rice candy and torrone (well, i guess the torrone wafer isnt exactly rice paper, but same concept).
