The soft pistachio nougat dates back to ancient times but it is difficult to understand where it came from. In Sicily there are two different terminologies to indicate soft pistachio nougat: cubbaita and giuggiulena, precisely to indicate a sweet made with honey and sesame. These two terms would suggest that it was the Arabs who brought the nougat to the Mediterranean basin, Sicily, Spain and throughout the rest of Italy.


To date, the most traditional of nougats is the one made with honey and almonds, but in Sicily the most popular seems to be the soft pistachio nougat. A white and soft tablet of honey and egg whites, with Sicilian green pistachios that give character and taste to this traditional product.

The soft pistachio nougat is a typical sweet of the Sicilian translation. Whole pistachios are covered with a soft mixture of honey, egg white and sugar and then covered with thin wafer sheets. A joy for your palate.
