It was by chance I stumbled on to this candy, thanks to a friend who chose an Italian Restaurant for us in Portland, Oregon today. (And a right fine restaurant it is too, I might add.) I did not think any of the wonder from Christmas as a girl could come rushing back so profoundly. But there was this candy. We Italians, of course, were Catholic. We were poor as my parents were first generation, and so only had this candy at Christmas. In its cute, well actually, very lovely artisticaly pleasing, boxes. Because we took Holy Communion and the wafers from the priest's hands to our tongues were the same egg white as what coated these candies, it was like the candy held so much more meaning. I would lift off the egg white and ponder the signifiance of Communion and how the candy was also a bit Holy. Little kids and their ideas. I had not seen it in fourty or more years (I am 61). By chance, a friend and I were talking about it with relish (pun intended) only a week ago. Where have we been? It's been here (in the universe) all along! I didn't remember the name but she and I both remembered the candy. I can't WAIT to give her some. YIPEE! My parents, and all of their generation are gone now, but thanks to this discovery and ability to gift my friends, they have been resurrected emotionally again.

Every year my Italian godmother gives me a box of these candies for Christmas and I have to work hard not to devour them within the day. Within the box, one third are lightly orange flavored torrone, one third vanilla, and one third mildly lemon flavored - all are excellent, soft nougat (that unfortunately leave you wanting another one!). Glad to know I can order them myself online, now, for the months in-between!

Hands down, this is the best of the Soft Torrone. Enjoying this nougat without fear of breaking your teeth is a definite plus-especially in the cold winter weather. Makes a very nice gift-very appreciated.

These individually wrapped pieces in nice little boxes are a special treat. Savor orange, lemon, & vanilla soft nougat. Especially like the portrait of Julio Verne. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, anyone?

These are exactly the candies I've been craving for so long. A million years ago when the earth was still cooler, once a week I'd walk with my dad to the delicatessen and he'd buy me some while he waited for those yummy cold cuts. My favorite part was the thin paper-like wafer that would stick to my gums then quickly melt. Then I'd bite into a thick nougat loaded with almonds and slowly chew every morsel. Probably why my parents let us have these since it kept us kids quiet while they shopped!

The La Florentine is close to what I remember though I was looking for the originals in the blue box. I found them -- Ferrara -- from the same vendor and ordered both.

They're both loaded with almonds and same-texture nougat; not too chewy but doesn't fall apart or crumble unless you force it to. Each square is 1" x 1.3/4" x .1/2(thick) Perfect size for a sweet pick-me-up. Each box comes with Vanilla, Orange, and Lemon flavors. I started with Vanilla and have to wait awhile for the next taste but expect them to be just as wonderful. Minute they arrived I ripped open the boxes and started remembering why I loved them so much.

The La Florentine's are the sweeter of the two but that doesn't mean the other brand isn't sweet or any good. The Ferrara is actually in the range I prefer, more the "touch of sweet" as I love nougat but only want sugary-sweet sometimes. Getting both was a great idea and covers all moods!

My next order to Fine Products will be the hard candies, especially the Anise, Liquore, Caffe, and the Gran Mix that I might share with others. I'll probably have to buy 2 of each so I can have my own :)

My father is a second generation Italian immigrant and he had torrones since childhood. In his opinion La Florrentine torrones are excellent. I'll be visiting in a few days and if he hasn't eaten them all I'll try one too. Believe me, if my dad doesn't like something he'll let me know therefore these must be good.

I have eaten this candy since I was a small child and my grandmother gave it as special treat at Christmas and I'd save the little boxes. I'm now retired and still love torrone, but it's hard to find locally except at Christmas. Bought this as a gift for my 90 yr old dad when he said he had a nostalgic yearning for some torrone- it was gone in one day!

My husband's family is Italian and these candies are an annual Christmas treat. They are very delicious and not overly sweet. The nougat is delightful and the flavors are very refreshing. The little bits of almond in each one makes an especially good contrast between the slightly chewy nougat and the crunch of the nuts. I love the lemon ones and as with the other reviewer have to stop myself from over indulging.

My mom has a thing for soft Italian nougat - or Torrone as it is called. Every holiday either me or the kids insist on picking her up a couple bars of Torrone from our local CP World Market store. Unfortunately, once January or early February hits, her nougat stock plummets and she's left with nougat withdrawal until December rolls around again since no one sells Italian nougat outside of the holidays. After a search on Amazon, I was happy to discover that there are several varieties of nougat available, including La Florentine, and I bought her a variety for Mother's Day.

The La Florentine Torrone was very well received by my mom. The nougat comes in three different flavors including vanilla, orange, and lemon. Each piece is individually wrapped and boxed within the larger gift box. My mom liked this for two reasons - one, because the nougat is portioned out, she's less likely to eat too much in one sitting, and two, she could share the nougat with everyone and everyone got their own little box. The nougat itself is pleasantly sweet, is full of crunchy almonds, and is nicely flavored of either vanilla, orange, or lemon. My favorite was the lemon, and I really enjoyed how the nougat was soft and chewy. Each nougat piece is sandwiched between a thin, flaky wafer - that wafer is edible, so don't try peeling it off!

Overall, this is a really lovely box of nougats to gift. The candy is delicious and beautifully boxed. I definitely would buy this again for my mom.
