Looking for Alicante Almond Turron Candy
It's been a year and a half since I moved from Spain to Austin. I'm jonesin' for the kind of turron they make in Mallorca which is flat, has the consistancy of styrofoam and is surprisingly delicious. I suspect this is impossible to find in Austin. Alicante turron would be an nice alternative. Has anyone spotted it around town? Central Market South has a ton of foreign Christmas food but no turron. 1880 is one of the major brands of turron.
I ended up going to both Phoenicia Bakery and Fiesta. Phonenicia Bakery smelled wonderful and was very interesting. I plan on going back for their chicken sandwich. However, I ended up getting the turron at Fiesta because it was a little cheaper. Thanks for your help. Muchas Gracias.
I saw turron (Spanish, not Italian torrone) several months ago in Fiesta off 38th & I-35. I'm not sure which style it was, but I noticed it because hazelnut torrone is one of my favorite holiday candies. I have absolutely no idea if Fiesta still sells it as I only go there once every few months to restock on international items and lard, but if you're ever up in North Austin, it might be worth a stop to take a look.
