TURRÓN DE JIJONA (SOFT) AND TURRÓN DE ALICANTE (HARD). EL ALMENDRO
El Almendro was founded on 1883 with its first factory at Jijona, where the turrón is originally from (Valencia, East Coast of Spain). Since then, they’ve been developing new products and formats as they know how to make happy both traditional people and new generations who are looking for new flavors and shapes, like small size turrones or sugar free. They also showcase a variety of sophisticated turrones, such as coconut, fruits, cream and nuts, chocolate and almonds, toasted egg yolk, dry red fruits, orange… We will stay tight to the first turrón of all times:
Turrón de Jijona and Alicante, the originals. A sweet treat traditionally made of with almonds and honey that has been keeping the traditional flavors:
Hard (Alicante turrón: with whole, crunchy almonds) and Soft (Jijona turrón: soft, because the almonds have been pounded into a paste).
El Almendro has this, come- on- handy tray, with a scrumptious assortment of small pieces, individually wrapped, ideal to taste the different Varieties: Crunchy, Creamy, Egg Yolk, Chocolate turrón with Almonds, Crunchy Chocolate and “minibits” pralines.
