Our history

How it all began for our Ogre Founder...

After a visit to Les Eyzies-de-Tayac in Dordogne, where he opened his first store, our Ogre Founder,Florian Giraudreturned to Brittany in 2013 to settle in the beautiful town of Quistinic, in the heart of Morbihan.

He opened his own delicatessen confectionery store “Ambryzel” in Carnac in 2014. Curious, he is constantly looking for new sweets to share with his customers. This is how he meetsa beekeeper near Jonzac, in Charente – Maritime, whichhim presents a unique Nougat of its kind. This one stands out with a powerful taste of honey, a creamy texture and an intoxicating scent of dried fruits that leaves no one indifferent.


From this first bite a true passion for Nougat will be born.

In 2015, our Ogre sees his tribe grow and he changes priorities. He wants to be close to his family and a tempting idea arises in his mind...


“What if I became an Artisan Nougatier? »


Florian wants to share his passion by making the famous honey nougat, but not with just any honey! He wants ahoney from its territory, imbued with the magnificent landscapes of Brittany, its relaxing nature & the strong and authentic character of the Bretons.

The recipe for Honey Nougat was passed on to him by the Jonzac beekeeper and after a few batches of trials, he enjoyed revisiting this little wonder from every angle.Le Bonheur des Ogres was released on February 24, 2018., with todayseveral ranges of Nougat with a choice of 22 diverse and varied recipes for the pleasure of young and old gourmands. In 2022, Florian has created two new delicacies: Les Croquants des Ogres & The Wonders of the Ogres,that it declines today in 2 new ranges of delicacies,always so daring & Breton.

the History of
 Nougat with Brittany Honey

Nougat has been around for centuries, and this confectionery comes in different shapes and flavors all over the world.


The one imagined and manufactured by Bonheur des Ogres is halfway between the Montélimar classic and the Spanish Tourons. The latter was designed to respect the French Nougatiers charter while obtaining the taste of roasted hazelnuts specific to Touron. It is the quality of its honey that makes all the difference and distinguishes it from other nougats: a true and pure delight!


The Happiness of Ogres has chosen toa strong-tasting local honey, from theencounter of bramble, buckwheat and more particularly chestnut. Honey making up around 60% of the sweetening material,Ogre Happiness Nougat possessesa true identity which makes it recognizable from the first bite.


Le Bonheur des Ogres has opted for an ecological and human approach by sourcing directly fromlocal beekeepers, inorganic and conventional agriculture, activists and committed to the preservation of bees and biodiversity.

The other ingredients we use in the base of our Nougatare alsocertified organic farming and guaranteed without additives or colorings.
