“Best Turrones in Barcelona!”
Review of Turrones Vicens

This cute little shop offers a huge selection of artisanal sweets and confections from Spain. I preferred buying my turron here, it was a little cheaper than the other shops, and boy was it delicious!! I bought some as souvenirs for friends and family, but because I ended up trying some, I had to go back and buy more, because it was so good!
I think the quality of the product here is a lot better than buying the regular, 'industrial' turron that is available for tourists everywhere. It's the difference between something of handmade/good quality ingredients vs. standard/factory quality. Take a side trip here when you are walking through the Gothic neighbourhood and you'll be glad you did! In fact, because they turron is soo good, make sure you buy extra!!! They have different sizes, so if you want to try different ones, you don't have to buy a huge package.
The shop workers were very friendly as well..

We were introduced via a food tour we were on and loved it. The history of the store and the tradition of the agramunt, this is not nougat, was very interesting too. People line up and wait for hours at the holidays, as this is like fruit cake or rum cake is to some Americans. We bought two large bars and can't wait to savor them when we get home. A must stop if Noy to taste the samples, but I am sure you will leave with some thing.

We were in Madrid right before Christmas and we loaded up on turrones here! They are absolutely wonderful artisan turrones. The marzipan covered in dark chocolate is the best:-)

A small, but well-stocked shop with a delicious array of traditional Turron and a good range of products and flavours. Tasters are provided!! There are also bags of caramelised nuts, fruit sweets and other local delicacies.

Staff are welcoming and friendly - they offer advice, but also give you the opportunity to browse without feeling pressured.

I have been very satisfied with everything I bought...And only wish I'd tried to fit more in my suitcase.
