Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Almond paste is a great ingredient for your everyday baking. Our paste contains 67% select grade almonds so you can be sure that you're getting a quality product.
The paste adds a delicate depth to any dessert you make. The subtle sweetness of the almonds coupled with the natural fruitiness makes it a pantry staple. From scrumptious almond cookies and fruit tarts to delectable almond croissants and wedding cakes, the possibilities are endless!
Almond Paste vs. Marzipan
Almond paste generally contains 2 parts almonds to 1 part sugar, whereas marzipan contains a higher ratio of sugar to almond. The high almond content of almond paste makes it a wonderful filling for cakes and baked goods, adding a rich almond taste. Marzipan is more pliable than almond paste; it is often molded into candy and eaten as is, or rolled out as a fondant for cakes. To make marzipan, you can combine equal parts confectioner's sugar and almond paste with a touch of light corn syrup.
Our almond paste is packed in steel cans to preserve freshness. Once opened, the paste will stay fresh for a month; we recommend covering the can of unused paste with a layer of plastic wrap and a layer of foil, and storing it in the fridge. And, yes, the paste can be frozen so it can last for up to a year (You're not the only one wondering this)! Just remove the remaining almond paste from the can, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and store the wrapped paste in a tightly sealed container in the freezer.
2. 64% of the fats found in almonds are monounsaturated fats and, according to the American Heart Association, these fats help lower harmful cholesterol levels as effectively as expensive pharmaceutical drugs.
3. 1 oz of almonds has 7.6 grams of protein, while a whole egg has just 5.5 grams of protein. The protein in almonds maintains healthy muscle growth in your body.
4. 1 oz of almonds contains as much calcium as ¼ cup of milk for strong bones.

“Thanks for your fresh and well-priced products. My family goes through poppy seeds relatively fast and yours is the price to beat. While they are the main reason we keep coming back, we also appreciate your larger-than-normal packages of nutmeg and porcini mushroom, your soft and flavorful dry fruit, and your hard-to-find almond paste. Oh, and the quality and variety of your nuts is great.”

“This is the second time I have ordered the cans of almond paste from you for my Kransaka, a Norwegian Ring Cake we bake for special occasions. I am super pleased with your prompt services, your attention to details, and your graciousness to include a little surprise gift for me each time. Never had Raw Buckwheat and will accept the challenge to try something new! You have my ongoing and loyal patronage! Thanks again. ”

“Simply amazing shipping time. I cannot believe that an order I placed yesterday, Fri, is here today.
As to the Almond Paste, I have used your product before and it makes the best pignolia cookies. My mom, who grew up in an old Italian neighborhood, could not be happier.
Thank you all so much for all you do. I will, no doubt, be ordering again very soon.

“quite impressed with the expediency in processing and shipping my order, but what is also really thrilling is your unique take on "nuts". the box is as exciting as the contents along with the follow up letter. nice to see a little humour in a less than humourous world we live in. thanks for brightening up my day. j”

“I've never used almond paste before but have two recipes I'm using at Christmas that call for its use. Can''t wait! While I'm at it, I just want to say thanks to nuts.com...great service, fast shipping and extremely clever packaging. I've already recommended nuts.com to all of my baking friends on Facebook!”
