Alicante Nougat "Turron" by Pico
Alicante Nougat, also known as 'turrón duro', is a hard nougat made of honey, sugar, egg white and almonds, sandwiched between wafer paper sheets. One of Spain's most popular Christmas treats.
Pico boasts a rich history in its industry, with its roots dating all the way back to the 1920s when Antonio Picó Mira opened his first workshop on the present-day Alcoi street, nestled in the heart of the municipality. It was here that Antonio first wielded his mace to craft nougat, a delicacy predominantly sold at local markets during that early era.
