The one they prefer is the Nougat Chabert and Guillot! Real nougat from Montélimar.
A century and a half of tradition and nearly five generations to sublimate it. The ancestor Alexander, had opened his first confectionery there in 1848. In his nougat, he took only the best: a handful of beautiful almonds, a touch of honey and a hint of vanilla.
This requirement remained. Later, his grandson, Charles Chabert, became associated with his brother-in-law, Henri Guillot. Both are determined to give a new dimension to the small Montilian factory. Place therefore to audacity and ingenuity. They invest in the «Hive d'or» and its factory opposite the Montélimar station. The time is for paid holidays and the influx of holidaymakers. The small business prospered and gave them wings. As true pioneers, they and their descendants Pierre and Didier Chabert will invent new products such as the famous Crème de nougat; they will never cease to surprise our taste buds with happiness.
But also, they will travel the nougat around the world. Today, Chabert and Guillot products are the "reference" of nougat, and everywhere we love it. This delicious taste awakens the taste buds, awakens the memories, immerses us in the sweetness of the holidays...
