Blue Confetti or sugared almonds originated in Sulmona, Italy 250 years ago. The best Confetti are made with Avola almonds from Avola (Siracusa) in Sicily. The almonds are coated with an extra fine sugar coating. Avola almonds are flat, fragrant and are naturally sweet. These almonds are considered the best in the world. For this reason, confetti made with Avola almonds are finer quality and are more expensive.
A kilo of Avola almond confetti contains approximately 300 pieces.
