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.

“Hello to the Nut Family,
You all seem like a fun group of people. My friend in the UK was wanting the almond paste, I sent her the recipe to make home made and then I found your site and ordered it. It arrived as it was told to be. It arrived in good condition, thank for the freebie of walnuts, I enjoyed them. I am saving one can for me and will mail the other to the UK. I know she will be as excited as I am. I am ready to use mine and see what I can cook delicious with the almond paste. Thanks again. Patsy”

“I am thrilled!! I have ordered almond paste at Christmas and was very pleased with what came, but this order beats all. I ordered poppy seeds and vanilla beans. The vanilla beans were so fresh and so many for the price. I cannot believe it, I will order from here again and again!!”

“Ordered the Almond paste for our dutch pastry, banket. This is wonderful stuff! For those of you in the know, it's NOT kernel paste, but the real thing at a great price. Shipping is so fast! Great product, great company. ”

“Wow. I'm seriously impressed.
Not wanting to drive to Brooklyn to get a good deal on pignoli nuts and almond paste, I went searching online.
Finding the almond paste in the 7 lb can was a thrill but at such a great price it was even better.
Wait, I'm not done raving. Comparing prices for pine nuts, the cost was comparable to other sites, but I loved how they described each variety in such detail. So I figured I'd order everything from here.
Well, I swear it wasn't 14 hours from when I ordered it, that it was at my door! When the doorbell rang, I was floored to see the FedEx guy standing there holding my Nuts Online box.
I think the FedEx guy thought I was nuts cause I just stared at him in disbelief at how fast I got my shipment.
I had heard of you guys because a dear friend of my daughter works for you, but I didn't figure out it was the same company until after I ordered.
He was right, you guys are awesome.
Not only the incredibly friendly and fun emails confirming my order and informing me it was delivered, but the speed of receiving it, the quality of the pine nuts blew me away for the price.
No more unnecessary trips to Brooklyn paying all those tolls, I found my special spot for nuts!
I've been shopping off the internet for more than 12 years (yup 12 years) and you guys absolutely own the experience.
If this is any indication of my holiday experience this year, yippee for me!
Thanks again for an incredible experience. My pignoli cookies are going to be awesome this year!”

“Thanks so much for your super-quick delivery...I ordered Monday and received Wednesday....wow! Can't wait to make my Dutch Strudel over the weekend for Thanksgiving!!! I will gladly order from you again!
Olivia, Cumming, GA November 19, 2009
“Absolutely divine, delivered as promised, super fast, superior quality, yummmmmmy, decadent and worth every penny. Service is outstanding and will definitely refer my friends to your website. My holiday season will be the nuttiest this year and as for my Christmas cake, finally it will be bathed in almond paste as any good Brit knows it should be.
Kind regards, thank you and nuts to 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!”
