Turron has been a sweet indulgence on the Iberian Peninsula for over a thousand years. By combining Spain's Marcona almonds with wildflower honey found in the mountains near Jijona, the Moors produced a delicious variation of their own halva candy, a nougat candy called turron. Turon is still proudly produced with the same natural ingredients in the town of Jijona, and has become a become a traditional favorite - especially around Christmas.

Turrón is a very old, traditional sweet of Moorish (Arabic) origin. Turrón has been a popular sweet for centuries, even outside Spainâ??s borders. It is said that the Moors invented turrón over 500 year ago in Jijona, a small town about 30 miles or so north of Alicante.
