The Négus: The Négus is a soft caramel chocolate coated with a sugar syrup. It was created in 1902 by the Maison Grelier following the official visit to Nevers of the ruler of Ethiopia: the Négus. Indeed it was customary at the end of each year to create a new sweet which was named after an event or something notable that had taken place during the year.

It is on sale at: Confiserie Au Négus 

Nougatine: Nougatine was invented more than a century ago by Jean-Louis Bourumeau. It was the Empress Eugenie who was responsible for its success. Having discovered the sweet during an official visit to Nevers with her husband, the Emperor Napoleon III, she ordered large quantities on her return and introduced Nougatine to all of Paris.
