Turrones 1880 is a legendary turrón maker from the town of Jijona, family owned and operated since 1725. They are known to make the highest quality turrón candy in Spain.
At the battle of Navas de Tolosa in the year 1212, it is said that the nuns of the San Clemente convent took care of the wounded soldiers. According to tradition, they ground up their stores of almonds in mortars and pestles, then kneaded them together with sugar to create emergency rations. This type of bread (pan) produced with a pestle (maza) is supposed to have given rise to the name mazapán in Spanish - marzipan in English.
Almonds (50%), sugar, glucose syrup, water, stabilizer (sorbitol), and preservatives (sorbic acid, potassium sorbate). May contain traces of other tree nuts, milk and egg.
