Candied Valencia Almonds - 1 lb- Spain

Sugar coated almonds!
Valencian almonds from Spain

Handful ready, almonds from Spain are some of the sweetest almonds in the world, and when you top them with a sweet sugary coating you have one of the best treats to eat, by one or by the handful!

As you know, wild almonds are bitter, even toxic, and when consumed in even small quantities can be fatal! “Domesticated” almonds however are not. Even before “grafting”, domesticated almonds may be as old as the Early Bronze Age (3000-2000 BC,) and even King Tut had a few in his tomb. The natural process of selection of trees by man unintentionally, and then intentionally, in the orchards brings us the sweet almond of today.

Valencia almonds Valencia almonds, with its flatter, more pointy tip, make it one of the distinct shapes in the almond world. And when specifically from Spain, these are one of the sweetest grown. Out of the top ten largest producers of almonds in the world, second behind California, Spain produces about 9% of the world’s total.

These lightly sugary coated almonds have crunch from the sugar and bite from the almond to blend perfectly in the mouth. Not too sweet at all, the sugar instead complements the almond slight bitterness and the “milky” almond flavor, blending into the perfect bite. And the best part is that the sugar is not “heavy” or “hard” like some sugared almonds.

Instead it breaks away cleanly without any fear of tooth fragmentation. In fact, if you place just one almond in your mouth, the sugar melts away in a wonderful dissolution leaving the almond to be minced up and swallowed.

Combined variables of almonds and sugar, make each nut crazy good and not just good tasting, but fun to eat.
