- Sweet and delicate flavor
- Delightfully crunchy
- Oven roasted, sprinkled with sea salt
- A healthy, cholesterol-lowering snack!
- Size - 2.2 lb/1 kilo
Rare Marcona almonds are smooth and juicy with an incomparably sweet delicate taste -- quite a different flavor than their American cousins.
This version of Marconas is oven roasted, producing a less oily texture. The almonds are then sprinkled with sea salt and vacuum-sealed in plastic for a fresh flavor. The 1 kilo bag is a handy size for entertaining - or for providing a family treat. Either way they will be devoured with delight!
Almonds are one of the healthiest snacks. The nutrient density is so high that a small portion provides substantial nutrients. They also have a high content of cholesterol fighting mono unsaturated oil. A recent study showed that when people eat roughly a handful of almonds a day, they lowered their LDL cholesterol by 3%!
There is a very limited supply of Marcona almonds, since Spain is the only source of this variety in the world. In addition, the trees are early bloomers, which make them vulnerable to late spring frosts. The groves are found along the Mediterranean coasts of Spain -- from the southern coast of Málaga, proceeding east up the coast to Tarragona.
Unlike the familiar American almonds with their light brown porous shells, Spanish Marcona almonds have a protective hard shell that resists insects, so that they may be grown naturally with no need for herbicides.

"These almonds are so much better than the ones we can get in our local stores. The local products are generally too oily (and the oil is not olive oil.)"

"My husband and little boy love these. With getting these marconas through La Tienda we don't have to worry about bitter almonds (used to by them from a different company...and they had tons of the rancid tasting bitter almonds). I would highly recommend these marcona almonds!!!"

jose - weston, Florida September 2015
"These are so good there should be a warning on the label. They're highly addictive! I always keep a few bags in the freezer (they keep almost forever) so I never run out. I buy several bags whenever they're on sale. Even after the bag is opened, store them in the freezer for best freshness."

"Lovely mild flavor. Very little salt therefore you can add your own delicious seasonings if you wish. Great with Sherry."
Kimberly - Germantown Hills, Illinois January 2013
"Perfectly balanced recipe--not too oily or salty. Everybody's favorite stocking stuffer. A great value, too."
Mary - November 2011
"These almonds are great! They are plump and salted just right (moderately to lightly) and the roasting process leaves them "buttery" in flavor and not oily. I keep reordering them. This may be initially hard to understand but I use them for weight loss: sure, they are nuts but the salty, savory flavor works for me as a light lunch. A dozen pieces substitutes for a meat sandwich or that leftover plate of pasta I hope my wife will get to first!"
