The almond is the first tree to flower in the spring in the Middle East and Mediterranean. For that reason, it has been a symbol of good beginnings for thousands of years, including in the Bible. Sugar coated almonds have been among the favorites and still appear at weddings, Easter baskets, and other events welcoming a good beginning. These finely made Dragees are all-natural with a crisp, panned exterior and a smooth, compelling flavor. 4 oz. in a recyclable heat-sealed bag with the history on the label.
