These crunchy little rounds of turrón are a great gift, and fun to share with coffee or tea. Each one is packed with whole roasted almonds coated in honey nougat.
For over two hundred years the master confectioners at Vicens have made turrón candy by hand in the village of Agramunt. Historically a Christmas candy, it is now enjoyed across Spain any time of year.
Freshly roasted whole almonds are the centerpiece of this healthy treat. Honey, egg whites and sugar are heated in a kettle, then blended with the almonds. While still warm, the mixture is formed by hand into small rounds, then packaged in a beautiful cloth bag for you to enjoy or share as a gift.
Torrons Vicens began in 1775 in the town of Agramunt in Catalonia. This traditional candy has protected status (PGI) to ensure that the quality and the candy-making tradition are protected from inferior imitations. Turrón with this status must follow strict traditional methods and has to come from the town of Agramunt.
In 2016, the master turrón maker at Vicens, Angel Velasco, was awarded the title of “Best Pastry Chef in the World” at the prestigious Madrid Fusion food show. He was joined on stage by famed pastry chef Albert Adrià, who collaborated with him to create a line of dynamic new turrón flavors, such as Gin Tonic and Arroz con Leche, which are available at La Tienda.
