Jordan almonds, also known as sugared almonds or confetti, are a type of confectionery consisting of almonds covered with a candy coating in various colors, originating from Italy and particularly typical of the town of Sulmona

The term 'Jordan Almonds' is a corrupted version of the French word 'jardin,' meaning 'garden,' hence, a cultivated almond. Thus they do not come from Jordan; they are thought to come from Malaga, Spain Another source of information has it that at one time the term referred to a variety of almonds originally grown along the Jordan River characterized by long, thin, slender, rather smooth kernels in thick, heavy shells.

A classic form of dragee, they are often used as wedding favors due to the "bitter" almonds and the "sweet" sugar representing bittersweet married life. The treats are often packaged in groups of five per guest, accompanied by a traditional poem:

  • Five sugared almonds for each guest to eat
  • To remind us that life is both bitter and sweet.
  • Five wishes for the new husband and wife --
  • Health, wealth, happiness, children, and a long life!

Jordan almonds commonly come in pastel, spring-themed colors such as lilac, pale yellow, light blue, light green, and white. The colors are traditionally associated with certain life events, such as white Jordan almonds for weddings, red Jordan almonds for graduations and yellow, pink or blue Jordan almonds for baby showers or baptisms.
