Gourmet Marcona Almonds by Peregrino (2.2 Pounds)$48.95
- Fresh Marconas sprinkled with sea salt
- Just a handful a day can lower bad cholesterol
- Plenty for a party!
- Size - 2.2 lb/1 kilo
These are my favorite Marcona almonds -- lightly sautéed in oil, sprinkled with sea salt and sealed in a plastic bag for freshness.
Don't confuse them with their American cousins which have quite a different flavor. Crunchy Marcona almonds are smooth and juicy with an incomparably sweet delicate taste. The 2.2 pound bag is the perfect size for almond lovers - and their guests.
Spain is the only source of Marcona almonds in the world. Since Spaniards covet them for many of their traditional gourmet treats, there remains a very limited supply of Marcona almonds for the rest of the world.
What makes Marconas even more precious is that the trees are early bloomers, making them especially vulnerable to late spring frosts. The small groves are found along the Mediterranean coasts of Spain -- from the southern coast of Málaga, proceeding east up the Mediterranean coast to Tarragona.
Unlike the California almonds with which you may be familiar, with their light brown porous shells, Marcona almonds have a protective hard shell that resists insects. For this reason they may be grown naturally with no need for herbicides.
Almonds are one of the healthiest snacks. The nutrient density is so high that a small portion provides substantial nutrients. They also have a high content of cholesterol fighting mono unsaturated oil. A recent study showed that when people eat roughly a handful of almonds a day, they lowered their LDL cholesterol by 3%!

"I'm so happy that I discovered LaTienda's marcona almonds!!! They are delicious and we have never had bitter almonds. I had previously been ordering marconas from another company, and almost every order had several "bitter" almonds (they tasted rancid). So we love these marcona almonds and highly recommend LaTienda as a company to order from!"

"Wonderful product! My husband and I are addicted. Great that they're healthy as well as delicious. I would rather they were sautéed in olive oil rather than sunflower oil, though. I think it does make a difference. "
