One of Spain’s many contributions to world cuisine is the rich and irresistibly delicious turrón. Traditionally, a turrón is a sweet bar made of honey, egg whites and almonds that are either chopped and baked into a hard block (Alicante style) or blended with almond oil into a soft nougat (Jijona style). Today many countries in Latin America carry on the tradition of turrón with some creative additions and variations. Here at the Latin Coffee Warehouse we carry the most popular turrones made by El Quijote of Spain:
