One of the most classic and timeless wedding favors on the market today is undoubtedly the Jordon almond. This sweet treat has been delighting not only wedding guests but guests at baby and bridal showers for years. If you're looking for a traditional, affordable and delicious gift for guests at your next event, you can't go wrong with this almond.
So where did this snack come from and how is it made? The Jordon almond
first became popular in Mediterranean weddings. Not only did the sugarcoating help preserve the snack for the wedding, but it holds an old meaning. Fresh almonds tend to have a bittersweet taste, which represents the hardships we face in life. Sugarcoating is added with the hope that the newlyweds' life will be much more sweet than bitter.
The actual process of making the Jordon almond is more complicated than you might expect. While it's easy enough to clean and prep the almonds, it takes an experienced cook to keep the consistency of the candy coating just right. Today, the coating is often made in large batches and drizzled over the almonds as they turn in a large tumbler. The coating slowly builds up and hardens into the familiar shape of the Jordon almond as we know it.
Today, the Jordon almond
is still a popular wedding favor, either on it's own or as part of a larger candy buffet display. It's also become the standard favor at bridal showers and baby showers. The sugar coating is dyed in a variety of colors like pink, blue and even lavender jordon almonds
. Their rich history and the message of hopes for a sweet life make them the perfect favor for any celebration in life. Their sweet, nutty flavor will add the perfect touch of class to your wedding and more.
