El Almendro Turrón Duro (Hard Almond) Sugar-Free 200g
A Sweet Treat without the Sugar
Not to be confused with the Philippine Turon, Spanish Turrónes is a sweet nougat confection popular across Southern Europe. The quintessential Christmas treat, there are 2 main traditions of turrónes. 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 Duro (Crunchy Almond Nougat Candy) is a delectable spanish nougat confection that’s crunchy, nutty and sweet without the added sugars.
A premium almond nougat treat that satisfies even the most discerning gourmet, El Almendro Crunchy Almond Turrón is made of 60% whole roasted almonds (earning it the highest quality label of “Supreme” Quality), folded in to a sweet egg white mixture, nestled in between 2 paper-thin wafers.
A Christmas classic that will transport you to the flavours of a Spanish Noche Buena. Feliz Navidad!
Perfectly decadent on its own, you may also serve this with your afternoon coffee. We personally enjoy pairing this sweet almond nougat with a Tawny Port Wine which usually comes in dry and semi-dry varieties. It is known to be a dessert wine and would make a perfect partner to this sweet decadent turrón.
