Hello friend, another Friday and today I present the last pleasures of these Christmas parties.
They are not suitable for diabetics sorry for what you are.
I am very sweet, I love sweets and our streets are filled with them.
The windows show the nougat that although they are not from my region if they are universal.
Rich nougat of almond, sugar and honey.

There are different formats from the rectangular tablet to the cake much finer and better not to break the teeth.

We only taste them in winter when the holidays appear on the horizon and last until they run out in mid-January, then disappear until another year.
They are normally made in jijona Alicante and are experts of many centuries.
A delight for the palate.

He comes with a small figurine inside and we have a tradition that touches the figurine pays the roscón, no matter what it touches you, protests between laughs and complaints but it is a great pleasure to touch you since it is a familiar moment and happy.

If you visit Spain on these dates, surely in the place you are, you have special sweets from the area for these last Christmas days, do not miss them and pamper your palate.
