La Florentine Torrone, a traditional nougat candy, is the soft torrone that you remember from your childhood! The little tan boxes with the portraits! Prepared with the finest pistachios and almonds, smooth golden honey, pure cane sugar, and fluffy egg whites according to an original old-world recipe.
I love torrones. I am 100% Italian and can remember having these around every year at Christmas. I knew Christmas was approaching whenever my parents made a trip to the Italian store and bought these. My mother had 8 brothers and sisters and every time we’d make our Christmas visits, we would find these treats at their homes too. Not only do I order them every year for Christmas but I find myself ordering them every few months just so I have them on hand as I love them so much. My parents and aunts and uncles are all gone now but every time I bite into a torrone, the memories of them come flooding back. Torrones are truly the ultimate comfort food for me. Thank you for continuing to make these and offer them to those of us who grew up with them.
