Brandy Christmas Pudding & Gingerbread Nougat
Origin: Adelaide, Australia
Type: novelty; truffles
Yum yum! I really don’t understand why I was so surprised that the gingerbread nougat had the consistency of nougat. The brandy pud was a bit like mousse, but not too airy. And I am obviously unable discern the difference between brandy and whiskey.
I bought these two truffles at Haigh’s Swanston St store in town for just under $6. The freckles were a freebie.
