Blanched Marcona Almonds
Blanched Marcona Almonds, the Queen of Almonds, are imported from Spain. They are shorter, rounder, softer, and sweeter than the California variety. These marcona almonds are raw with no skins, and make an excellent snack on their own. They can also be roasted or used in baking.
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.

Nice, but I will have to roast these and crunch them up and add some seasonings. YummmmmRobin, Boca Grande, FL
These are the perfect nuts for recipes that require the use of almonds. They are softly chewable.Linda, Waukegan, IL
A 5 lb bag of these almonds can disappear in no time! I roast them in olive oil, fresh homegrown rosemary and sea salt. No better snack anywhere!Vivian, Richmond, VA
