The sweet nougat delicacy known as Turrónes is popular throughout Southern Europe. It is not to be confused with the Philippine Turon. They are a classic Moorish sweet delicacy that is popular throughout the Christmas season, and El Almendro, a Spanish turrónes firm founded in 1883, has become associated with this Christmas tradition.
The El Almendro Torta Imperial Round Crunchy Almond Turron is a crunchy almond snack in the shape of a circle, bursting with delicious honey-sweet flavors. It uses a traditional recipe that includes premium quality ingredients. A traditional Spanish dessert, it has crunchy almonds combined with a honey-and-sugar caramel, and egg white to give it its distinctive white hue. It has a chewy texture that is accented by the almonds. It’s sweet but not cloying, and is great as snack or dessert.
The Torta Imperial Round Crunchy Almond Turron by El Almendro goes well with coffee or coquito, as well as Cava (Spanish sparkling wine), or a Tawny Port Wine.
