Almonds have been known to the Mediterranean peoples since ancient times. The Valencia variety is recognized by chocolatiers and pastry chefs as one of the tastiest and crunchiest. It gives Visan almond cake (plain, chocolate or lemon) its soft texture and delicate flavour. Particular care is taken to ensure the almonds are whole and uniform in size.
Known for their powerful yet slightly bitter taste, these shelled Valencia almonds are perfect for baking or as a gourmet snack.
