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.

When I received my order within two days in perfect condition (due to amazing wrapping of tons of bubble wrap) I thought how great it is that they were right! Thanks so much!
