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.

“Talk about "exceeding expectations!" The Marcona almonds are extraordinary. I could not believe how excellent they are: delicious, fresh, the best I have ever had.”

“I am so glad my friend introduced me to Nuts Online! I received my order today (after ordering yesterday afternoon) and once again I am thrilled with the quality and variety of the products. Now I'm completely hooked!”

“I have been buying delicious Marcona Almonds from NutsOnline for the last few months after visiting Spain and learning about how great this variety of almond is. Initially, the NutsOnline Marcona Almonds were great...although I had to request them to be slightly less oily than normal. However, recently, I have learned that NutsOnline has changed its supplier for Marcona Almonds, and WOW are they great...much better than ever before. The nuts are not at all oily in the least (they are now roasted in a very light olive oil), and are perfect. Delicious and very amazing is how I describe them. And, NutsOnline has outstanding customer service to boot. Thanks!”

“They have arrived. I am so addicted to Marcona almonds that I might have to find a 12-step program. Love the package, too. Thanks.”

“Hooray! Everything came in on time as planned. The nuts are great especially the Marcona Almonds. I plan to make Marcona Almond Mayo, a recipe from ElanasPantry.com. The peanuts are big and beautiful, really tasty. I will definitely be ordering again. I like searching your site just to look at all of the interesting items you have. You guys rock.”

“Hip Hip Hooray is right!!!, Just about knock the UPS driver off his feet trying to get to my package. These almonds are the BEST in the world.”
Yvonne, Sanford, ME December 4, 2009
“I just received my nut order today, I'm impressed with the the manner in which the items were packaged and the speed in which my order arrived. Now with that being said I must tell you that the nuts arrived sealed to retain their freshness and quality. The taste of these nuts are truly fresh and exactly what I wanted. I have tried other nut companies on line in the past much to my horror and dissatisfaction, so much so that I was afraid to try again but, I can assure you that I will be reordering from you again and again and will tell my friends about you.
This is one of my best finds of the year, Thanks again

“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!!!
