If you’ve enjoyed rich almond marzipan before, then you’ll fall head over heels for yema, a lighter version made in Spain. Handmade by the widely acclaimed producer ‘1880,’ this confection is a mixture of Marcona almonds, egg yolks and sugar. Each bite of the silky treat is a delight: you may find yourself yearning for mornings at the seaside cafes of Valencia, with a slice of yema and a hot cup of coffee.
In the kitchens of 1880, ground Marcona almonds are mixed by hand with silky Spanish honey and rich egg yolks. The result is a soft nougat of the highest quality.
This confection is a wonderful sweet surprise at breakfast or brunch, especially with a rich cup of coffee. Sometimes, we bring it out with dessert, a treat that our friends who’ve visited Spain recognize immediately, and a surprising treat for those who haven't!
Almond, sugar, egg yolk (10.75%), glucose syrup, water, stabilizer (sorbitol), preserving agents (sorbic acid, potassium sorbate), aroma. Processed in a company that also uses tree nuts, milk and soy.

"bad this season!! dry . not like last years or before...what's up? hardly any flavor. was it leftover from other seasons?? La Tienda Team: Thanks for sharing your comments, Marisa. We get fresh shipments of turrón every fall as it is a seasonally produced item. We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee and always want to know when a product does not meet with expectations. Thanks!"
