I was recently sent a sample of nougats from Kettle Confections. They're a small business based out of New York. Their fresh almond and pistachio nougats are all natural - no artificial colorings, flavors, or preservatives. They have a lower amount of sugar than mass produced candies but you really can't tell the difference. I love nougat and and there's just something to be said about candy that is not mass produced. I enjoyed these straight of of the wrapper, but these would also be really good dipped in chocolate. I think my favorite flavor was the Pistachio-Cranberry French Nougats.
