For 93 years, in our factory in Zakynthos, we create the traditional nougat that we have been taught by Italians, our neighbors. From the granddfather Ioannis Aktypis, to Dionysios Manesis and now to Ioannis Manesis, the company uses only pure materials and the original honey comb, in order to create the handmade delicious nougat. Take a try and you shall be thrilled…

Nougat is a kind of candy containing almonds, classic sweet of the Venetians. During the venetian domination, the nougat was the favourite sweet of the highest class. Nougat contains also honey, sugar and egg whites. Its name comes from the italian word “mandorla” (almond) and today is very famous at the Ionian islands and the Cyclades. In Italy its full name is “mandorlato” (full of almonds) and you can find it in many local variations.
