This delicious new turrón captures the essence of creamy 'arroz con leche' rice pudding. A shell of white chocolate encases a rich creamy truffle flavored with natural vanilla and lemon. Crunchy little pieces of rice are blended in the truffle, adding a satisfying texture. Serve this special turrón with your favorite wine or a cup of good coffee.

Arroz con Leche is beloved in Spain. Famed chef Albert Adrià worked with Torrons Vicens to recreate the pleasure of this classic dessert in turrón form. They arrived at an elegant combination of flavors and textures. They started with a real cream truffle flavored with vanilla bean and lemon peel, and then added crunchy rice nuggets. This heavenly truffle is encased in a rich white chocolate shell.

Since 1775, the candy masters at Vicens have made excellent turrón candy in the village of Agramunt. They are also curious and enjoy playing with innovative combinations, improvising new candies while referencing the more traditional turrón styles.

In 2016, Angel Velasco, the master turrón maker at Vicens, was awarded the title of “Best Pastry Chef in the World” at the prestigious Madrid Fusion food show. He was joined on stage by famed pastry chef Albert Adrià, who collaborated with him to create a line of dynamic new turrón flavors, such as Gin Tonic and Arroz con Leche, which are available at La Tienda.

Turrón from Agramunt has protected status (PGI) to ensure the quality and the candy-making tradition are protected from imitations. Turrón with this status must follow strict methods and must be made in the village of Agramunt.
