- The Awesome Italian Almonds -
Our almonds will give you a whole new definition of almonds.
The family farm is located in Gargano National Park, Puglia Province, southern Italy. It covers an area of one square kilometer and produces almonds and olive oil. The owner of the farm is now the fourth generation of the land.
Italian almonds are known for their quality, but they are rarely seen in the Hong Kong local market. The main reason is that the most popular American almonds and Korean almonds are industrial products. Therefore, their production is very large and monopolizes Hong Kong's imports. Italian almonds are have limited production. It is especially rare to find home-grown Italian almonds in Hong Kong.
ITALY vs. other almonds
The biggest differences between Rizzy Italia almonds and the popular California / Korean almonds are:
- Strong Almond fragrance :
Rizzy Italia almonds have a good texture, crispy but not hard. Upon biting, it will release a mouthful of strong almond flavor, resembling the fragrance as strong as almond milk. The California / Korea almonds are relatively weak. Being too hard will hurt our teeth, and they are much more lacking in the athentic almond flavor.
- No additives :
Rizzy Italia almonds are itself very tasty, so there is no need to use any artificial seasonings: such as chocolate, wasabi. Additives are mainly used to cover the fact of poor quality of the product. ( At the same time, they usually have a high content of artificial sugar!). The best way to eat Italian almonds is to simply taste the original almonds, or mix it with coffee and red wine.
- Rare & Organic :
Over 80% of the almonds produced in the world come from California, and most of them are industrial products. Italy's production is only 3% of the world. Of the 3%, it is very rare to be able to reach Hong Kong, be organically grown, and be craft-based.
