TURRON looks set to stay strong as a Christmas favourite in Spain, with sales equalling those of last year.

Over 32 tonnes of the famous nougat, first introduced to Spain by the Moors, was produced in 2011 alone.

“From what we are seeing, people are spending in much the same way as last year,” said a spokesman from turron makers association Produlce.

Spain exports the sweet snack mainly to France, Portugal and Andorra with a small demand in the US.
