Marcona almonds, the "Queen of Almonds," are imported from Spain. They are shorter, rounder, softer, and sweeter than the California variety. These blanched Marcona almonds are roasted in olive oil and then sprinkled with sea salt, offering a delicious taste.Marcona Almonds vs. Regular Almonds
Marcona almonds are prized for being more tender, sweet, and delicate than regular almonds, with a nice buttery flavor that is due to their high oil and moisture content. California almonds have been described as tasting more “woody” in comparison. Long used in Spanish cuisine, Marcona almonds are now gaining popularity among Americans. Marcona almonds contain the same excellent health benefits as all almonds, including cholesterol-lowering monounsaturated fats. They are also an equally rich source of protein, antioxidants, iron, and calcium.
Use Marcona almonds in salads, with cheeses, alongside fruit, and in desserts. The Spanish use marcona almonds in tapas and treats like turron, a traditional nougat candy. The enjoyable flavor, and smooth, delicate texture of these unique almonds creates a wonderful snack in itself. For more options, see our entire selection of almonds.

“Your shipment arrived right on time for gifting, as promised! Carefully packaged and even included an extra "treater" for me. Cool!
I applaud you for using peanuts (the biodegradable kind) for packaging too! ”

“Wow, what quality products! Used to buy my roasted salted hazel nuts from William Sonoma but they quit carrying them. The Marcona almonds are simply fantastic also. Your website is in my favorites list.”

“What a surprise to find that my order arrived today, Wednesday, when it was due on Thursday! And I LOVE the dried strawberries. Marcona almonds are wonderful. You will be hearing from me again very soon. I am telling all my friends, also.”

“What a pleasant surprise! After savoring again in the USA what my family and I had relished in various European trips, we attempted to somehow replicate those gustatory pleasures. We did find various places with a 40 minute drive where we could obtain various delicacies, but since we were no longer vacationing, the scurrying about was not the optimal solution. I then looked online, and very quickly came to the nutsonline.com website. The first thing that I noticed was that the site was very well designed (I am a programmer and designer). Encouraged, I then looked at the offering, and compiled a list, very close to the sum of the various other destination lists, to order from nutsonline.com. As I entered my order I was again impressed by the quality of the web work, and figured (correctly, it turns out) that such attention to detail would presage good things too for the quality of the products. I ordered on Monday and received my order on Tuesday, which is sooner than what I would have been able to receive my goodies, since many gourmet stores are closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
As soon as I received my (rather large) package, I opened all the bags, and started tasting my treats. What a delight! The Marcona almonds were fresh and sweet, the chocolate covered ginger and orange peel were fresh and succulent, the other treats were equally succulent. I have become a customer of nutsonline.com. Thank you all at nutsonline.com,

“The only thing that surpasses the excellence of your service is the fantastic taste of your nuts!”
Susan, Bridgewater, NJ May 4, 2010
“Placed my first order thursday evening and received the shipment Saturday morning. Impressive! Haven't had a chance to try everything yet, but the marcona almonds are SO good - buttery, crunchy and with just a kiss of salt, I can't stop eating them. And the Spanish roast coffee is delicious, bold but smooth, just as described on the website. I'm a fan!”

“Oh boy...my nuts arrived this afternoon and have already broken into them. I am SOOOOOOO happy with my Spanish almonds...I can NOT tell you. I have been to Spain many times and always love those nuts. They had them at my grocery store...for a while...but not anymore. So...found that you guys carry them...and...I will have to say...yours are just as good if not better than the markets in Spain. I don't know where you get them...but they are EXCELLENT. And while getting the nuts...one can not only get 2 things..but more. So..I ordered the dried strawberries. Who knew how good those could be. Have not broken into the other items...but they sure look and feel good. AND...I love you box and your packaging. If I lived close to you...I think I would have to work there...just seems like great products with great fun.
Thank you and I will be ordering more in the future...count on it!!!
Your Squirrel Bait new customer...Rebecca Fonner”
