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!

PAIR­INGS

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.

Come Back Home for Christmas
