Despana Foods on Nothern Blvd..mini report

Thanks for the rec guys. I finally got there.

Since we are before the holidays they had a variety of turrons and sweets. I picked up amendras rellenas (soft turron in almond shaped soft shells), hard turron, sugar free soft turron (as a gift), and some chocolate covered cherries that contain sherry. They won't have the sweets after the Holidays since they are traditional for New Years.

They had samples of various products out Saturday morning and gave us red wine to drink. My fav sample was the herring (assuming thats what they were.)

They have a nice selection of Spanish cheeses....but I didn't really want 2 lbs (a quarter wheel) of cheese.

What else is good there?
