El Almendro Turrón Blando (Soft Almond)
A Spanish Christmas Classic
Not to be confused with the Philippine Turon, Spanish Turrónnes is a sweet nougat confection popular across Southern Europe. The quintessential Christmas treat, there are 2 main traditions of turrones. Turrón Duro, made of whole almonds, with a crunchy and sweet texture and Turrón blando, made with ground almonds with a rich, chewy texture.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
El Almendfro Turrón Blando (Soft Almond Nougat Candy) is a soft, spanish nougat made of carefully selected almonds ground into a paste.
