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.

“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

“Wow, ordered on Monday and had in hand by Wednesday afternoon. Prices are great. I've found a new way to satisfy my addiction to Marcona Almonds. I got twice the amount for 2/3 the price charged by the specialty grocery store around the corner. I'll be reordering soon. ”
