El Almendro was founded in Jijona (now known as Alicante), Spain in 1883 by Antonio Monerris Planelles. The first factory was opened in Jijona and he created his first batch of turron by 1885. The first two years were spent gaining experience and creating recipes. Over the next 100 years, the company expanded into what it is today, focusing on the purity of almonds and allowing this delicious nut to steal the show in all their creations.
The Cubits from El Almendro are an interesting innovation. They have created a snack that is predominantly almond, allowing their expertise at growing, harvesting, and using this delicious nut to shine through. The same can be said for their Salted Caramel Almond Cubits. The sweet, smooth, velvety flavors of the salted caramel mixed with the soft, subtle flavors of the almond do more to compliment each other than hinder. These snacks are perfect on their own or consumed over a cup of coffee. They also work well as a dessert for a picnic or a light meal.
