Turron and Spanish SweetsDiscover the sweetest treats from Spain, all in one place! In many countries around the world, turron is a treat that’s served traditionally around the Christmas holidays, the crunchy, sweet delicacy broken apart and shared between families after dinner – or a snack. This nutty, chewy-crunchy treat is made from honey, eggs, and toasted nuts (usually almonds). There are many different varieties to discover, so make sure to taste them all. Plus, we also carry a selection of Spanish sweets like cookies and biscuits, figs and more.
Spain is a culinary gem, with so many foods and ingredients to delight in – cheese, iberico hams and more are always present in foodie’s kitchens, but what about the sweets? Spanish sweets are also a delicious addition to your pantry, especially around the Holiday season when droves of Spaniards turn to their markets to stock up on turron. What is turron? Turron is made by heating up honey and mixing it with egg whites and sugar, until it all caramelizes, then adding toasted nuts and folding it all together. Once it cools and sets, the result is a crunchy and chewy bar that’s sweet and delicious. Although we know turron today as that Christmastime treat from Spain, it’s actually a delicacy that originated in the Arabic peninsula and was brought over to Spain by the invading Moors. And it’s not only Spaniards who love to enjoy this treat, as it is also wildly popular in Italy, Germany and deeply rooted in South American holiday traditions as well.
Besides the popular turron, you can also discover other Spanish sweets like coveted chocolate covered figs, which we know as Rabitos. Sweet and juicy figs enrobed in rich premium chocolate are the ideal partner for your mid-morning coffee or to serve after dinner with espresso or a cup of tea. Plus, we carry boxes and pretty tins of Spanish biscuits, made using traditional recipes and the highest quality ingredients from Spain.
