That Chewy Nougat Center
We felines don't have much call for nougats. As a rule, we don't eat candy bars. But people do, and so we pass along that today (March 26) is National Nougat Day.
Candy Bar Nougat
For starters, let's define our terms. The Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines nougat as "a confection of nuts or fruit pieces in a sugar paste." That goes beyond candy bars, I'll admit. Here's a web site that has a few nougat recipes. Food Network.com also has some recipes.
This stuff all looks way too chewy for moi. But my human readers may like it. If so, tuck in! (as my British friends would say). Don't break a tooth, though.

P.S. We already did many of the candy songs in another blog posting. But we didn't include George Harrison's classic Beatles tune, "Savoy Truffle," from the "white album" (1968). Now we have.
