Torrone, also known as honey nougat, is an ancient confection. Its roots go back thousands of years. In fact, it is older than chocolate. Italy’s Emilia Romagna region is one of two places famous for Torrone (the other being Campania). In its early days, Torrone was a food for the elite and was often included when making an offering for the gods. Over the years, Torrone became included in important Italian traditions. Still today, Torrone is given at Christmas and eaten as a special treat.
