Pralus – Barre Infernale Nougat
The latest flavour in French maker François Pralus’ irresistible range of Barres Infernales.
A heavenly combination of nougat, French honey, and whole chunks of almonds and pistachios are coated in a thick layer of smooth milk chocolate. The honey in this Barre is extra special, and comes from the little village of Mars near the Loire.
Sweet and rich with a satisfying crunch, this bar was surely made for sharing… if you resist it all yourself…
ABOUT THE MAKER
Pralus has been making patisserie and baked treats in Roanne, France, since 1948. Auguste Pralus quickly became famous for his Praluline, a gorgeous brioche packed with rose-sugar-coated pieces of almonds and hazelnuts. Auguste’s son François is now at the helm, and Pralus has become famous the world over for its fabulous chocolate. François is a master chocolate maker – he’s always on the lookout for new cocoa beans and has recently bought his own farm on the Madagascan island of Nosy Be.

A little bit of fine French patisserie in your own home. This bar is sweet but is designed to be enjoyed in small amounts. The star of this bar is the filling. The almonds and pistachios are packed full of flavour and the nougat; a sticky, sweet and subtly honey flavoured goo that binds it all together. The sweetness of the filling is balanced by the wonderful milk chocolate enveloping it. In this instance a 45% milk. Approach this bar as a fine example of nougat and you won't be dissapointed.

I love nougat but can't be doing with the really soft and over sweet stuff, the morbido. I much prefer the Torrone friabile which is very hard. In this bar the nougat is very chewy - that'll do - very tasty and very morish.

Absolutely adored this bar. The chocolate was perfectly pitched, a savoury counterpoint against the gooey sweetness of the melting middle. Dangerously moreish, it's hard to resist emptying my bank account to stock up on as many of these bars as my funds allow!

I bought this as it was reviewed in The Times. It sounded delicious, and, suffering from dry January blues and a recent divorce, I decided I deserved nice chocolate. So it arrived promptly, and it looked pretty, and it didn’t taste BAD - but the chocolate coating wasn’t very chocolaty and the nougat inside was identical to the nougat in Double Deckers with a small amount of added fruit and nut. For £20 (price plus postage) I was expecting it to be - I don’t know - more dense? More edgy? Just more INTERESTING. Also, I kill for sugar but this was too sweet. I’m not saying I didn’t swiftly enjoy it, but honestly? I’d have preferred fifteen Double Deckers.
