About our Spanish Sweets and Desserts
With countless unique desserts to choose from, including rich and decadent chocolate confections, crisp Marcona almond nougat, and traditional quince-filled cookies, we’re pleased to offer a large and varied selection of authentic Spanish desserts. Spanish desserts are some of the most varied and interesting in the world, thanks to Spain’s rather tumultuous history. First influenced by the Romans during their occupation of the country, then by the Moors. Spain benefited from the advancements of both great empires. Learning to use wine syrups and sugar to make their sweets long before other countries. Spanish conquistadors (being some of the first to reach the New World) made Spain the first nation in Europe introduced to the Mayan and Aztec favorite: chocolate. You can still plainly see the impact these ancient advancements made, as the continued use of sweet syrups, chocolate, and of course, sugar still feature prominently in Spanish desserts.
From the height of indulgence to slightly more moderate sweets, you’ll find a wide variety of options on our site. Local fruits and nuts feature prominently in Spanish desserts. Like the famous Spanish Turron, where Marcona almonds are suspended in crunchy amber caramel to create this tempting nougat. Whether you look for sweets that reflect the height of luxury or simple natural desserts perfect for your next hike or picnic, Spain has the sweet answer to every occasion. Choose your favorite today for an authentic taste of the sweet side of the Mediterranean!
