Pealized white confetti has a light satiny shimmer candy coating over the avola almond.
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 pearlized white sugar coating. Avola almonds are very 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.
The tradition of confetti giving to the guests at weddings is done in a group of 5 candies, each of which signifies Health, Wealth, Happiness, Longevity and Fertility. The bitterness of the almond and the sweetness of the candy signifies the union of life and what future matrimonial life may offer.
1 kilo of Avola almond confetti contains approximately 300 pieces.
