Traditional nougat, or as it’s called in some parts of Europe, turron, is a confectionary made from sugar or honey, roasted nuts, egg whites and sometimes dried fruit. Traditionally a Christmas time treat, the name turron is derived from the Latin word torrere, which is “to toast”, an expression of honor and goodwill, a fitting Christmas time sentiment.
Today, here in Edmonton at The Newget Kompany, the nougat we make is a little different from its European ancestor. Though we’re still traditional in encouraging the spirit of toasting and sharing, our nougat is a little nutty, a little sweet, and certainly a highly delectable chocolate confectionary. We start with a base of rich chocolate – white, milk, or dark – and then we add a little panache with different flavour pairings. The result is rich and decadent, simple, yet one of a kind, and best of all, won’t overpower your sweet tooth so you’ll always be ready for more. Our roster of flavours boasts several combinations made up from dried cranberries and blueberries, cocoa nibs and espresso beans, and marshmallows and cinnamon. And we’ve always got our taste buds on the lookout for new flavour ideas and pairings.
Unlike the traditional turron, we don’t think you need to wait till Christmas to enjoy nougat. At The Newget Kompany, our nougat is perfect for any holiday or social event with friends or family or both. Whether we pair it with coffee, share it over wine, or enjoy it on its own, what could possibly express more goodwill than sharing chocolate with good friends? So, we encourage you to indulge year round.
It was an honour to have Newget chosen in 2012 for Avenue Magazine’s “25 Best Things to Eat” and we're very excited to be voted #52 in The Tomato Food & Drink's Top 100 Best Things to eat and drink in Edmonton in 2016.
Every great story has an exciting beginning and a conclusion that leaves you wondering, “How is this going to end?!” The story of The Newget Kompany is no different.
You always think you might meet your life’s love at a friend’s wedding. Well, I did. It was a grand Italian affair. That is when I first laid eyes on Newget. Newget was there to delight all of the guests. The taste - heavenly chocolate, creamy, a little nutty. Newget was pure decadence. Everything you could have ever wanted. But a casual meeting was not enough. I needed more.
Every strong relationship needs the guidance and support of close family. My mom encouraged me to get to know Newget a little bit more. I tasted, teased, tested, and tried until I found a way to make Newget all my own.
Once I had my Newget, I shared its pleasure with family and friends. But it still wasn’t enough. Newget’s fans wanted more Newget.
After careful thought, I agreed that it was time for Newget to make its grand debut. Newget for everyone, at anytime, anywhere.
So how does the story end? Just like a choose-your-own-adventure-novel, Newget and I are still charting our path. I created The Newget Kompany to give this chocolaty wonder the proper start. Our start was destiny. Our next steps can only lead to greatness. Stay tuned”¦.or take a bite and be a part of our next chapter.
