What’s this?

Oh my gosh, Montargis has got "dog’s droppings" (crottes du chien)?

In fact, it’s just the name of a chocolate speciality created in 1968: a chocolate with sugared almonds coated with nougatine and soaked in dark chocolate.

Well, this "dog’s droppings" are those of the famous Montargis' dog!

His dog took revenge on him, by defeating the murderer during a duel...
