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.

“These guys Know how to run a business the honest old fashion way (of course with updated technology). From the minute you click on their website to after delivery, they are behind the product. I ordered some almond paste which was excellent (I am a professional pastry chef and theirs is an excellent brand of almond paste), the price was great, the communication very courteous and the follow up seals you for a long term relationship. Way to go Nutty Guys, Thanks.
Oh, did I forget to mention the free munchies that came with the package! Sincerely, I have not seen great service like this in a very long time.

You have won a new customer. Thanks again”

“This is first class high quality Almond Paste.
I like the perfect balance of Almonds and Sugar in your product. In most cases you receive high amounts of sugar and less almonds in todays markets. I learned my trade as a pastry chef in Europe and worked with a lot of Marzipan and are happy to find your company with this great Almond Paste.”

“I bought the poppy seed filling to make poppy seed rolls for the holidays and it was here quickly and the rolls turned out great-your almond paste is also the best priced I have seen-I use it for pine nut cookies. I will definitely be ordering from you again!”
Kathaleen, Santa Clarita, California December 11, 2011
“For years I was ordering Almond Paste from another company but they no longer offered it. Sooo happy and thankful I discovered you "nutty" guys in 2006. Ordered my 3rd can today. I can get three years of baking out of one can. Yep, it keeps very well in the frig. Thank you for a great product and less expensive than what I used to pay. Happy Holidays to all of you. ”

“My almond paste arrived in record time (3 days) via UPS. I am excited to be baking my "pignoli" cookies this holiday season for the first time. I have always adored getting them from Italian bakeries in NYC and now want to re-create that fabulous taste. Can't wait!”
