True Avola Dragées are very hard to find. Dragée Pécou is the premier manufacturer of dragée confections in France. Dragée Pécou works directly with Sicilian farmers to ensure only the finest quality Avola almonds are used in their Avola Dragées. Still a family run business, Dragée Pécou relies upon tradition-bound artisanal techniques; using slower treatments with pauses between steps, resulting in a far superior texture and evenness in coating. The impossibly thin coating of pure cane sugar and Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla does not overpower the natural flavor and crispness of the Avola almond.
Perfection comes at a price. In the United States, where "Jordan Almond" confections are the rule, true Avola Dragées may seem prohibitively expensive. But once you taste a true Avola Dragée, you may never want anything else!
