I am using the spanish name for an almond-based hard sweet... candy? I'm not sure quite how to classify it. It's crunchy. I've had it in rectangular block form.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure there is an italian version. If anyone knows what the heck I'm talking about, and is familiar with good examples available in the North End, please share! Thanks.
