Steeped in history, this Italian confection - torrone is a fabled nougat traditionally made from honey, sugar, egg whites, and crunchy nuts. Loved internationally, there are a lot of theories regarding how, when, and where this delight was first created. Some people believe it's derived from traditional Roman sweet - Cuppedo. However, according to the most famous story, it was invented for a royal wedding in 1441. It's believed that Sicilian cooks shaped the special celebratory sweet after the Torrazzo tower, hence the name - torrone.
The history of Quaranta began in 1924 in Caravaggio, the birthplace of Caravaggio. Antonio Quaranta and his wife Alzira, founder of the company, dedicated their lives to creating the most luscious nougat and other sweets typical of the Cremonese and Bergamasca confectionery traditions - cotton candy, traditional torrone, crunchy nougat with carob honey, and many more delights. Quaranta quickly got its well-deserved spotlight by making non-GMO, gluten-free delights without compromising flavors.
