Jijona Soft Almond Nougat "Turron" by Pico
Jijona's Soft Almond Nougat, known as "turron blando," is a timeless and delightful Christmas indulgence that captivates the palate with its exquisite blend of cooked honey, generously enriched with a medley of luscious almonds.
This delectable confection finds its roots deeply intertwined with history, with well-documented records of Turrón de Jijona, or Jijona nougat, dating back to the 14th century. Its enduring presence within Spain's culinary heritage serves as a resounding testament to the irresistible allure of this sweet treasure, which has been cherished and savored for countless generations, especially during the joyous holiday season.
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.
Today, this Jijona-based company is led by its third-generation stewards and has expanded its presence to over 15 countries across Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Australia. Additionally, it proudly holds membership in the Regulatory Council of the Protected Geographical Indication for Jijona and Nougat of Alicante, assuring consumers that both the production process and ingredients adhere to stringent quality standards.
