The production of Maria Simona’s Turron de Guirlache follows the traditional recipe.
- Net weight :200 g
- Shelf life : 9 months minimum. Keep it fresh ! Once opened, store in a cool, dry, dark and odour-free place, either in its original packaging or wrapped in foil or film and then in an airtight container. It is a common mistake to keep nougat in the fridge, which only spoils its organoleptic properties as well as its aroma and texture.

This product does not contain gluten, so it is suitable for coeliacs.
The Turron of Guirlache, the Turron of Aragon:
There is the soft turron of Jijona, the hard turron of Alicante and the turron of Guirlarche or turron of Aragon.
Although the guirlache is mainly native to the regions of Aragon, Catalonia and Valencia, curiously, the name seems to be of French origin. Its name comes from the French word “grillage”, referring to the way the almonds are roasted. The name was probably spread by the French in Aragonese territory in the 19th century, during the Napoleonic invasion.
Although there are many variations of the recipe, one of the most influential is that of the Aragonese gastronome Teodoro Bardají, who promoted this region with his recipe for Guirlarche de Zaragoza.
