The gift of Jordan almonds at weddings is a Western Europe tradition dating back centuries. In fact, at many Italian-American weddings it’s still the go-to favor for guests. Typically given in groups of five, these sugar-coated almonds traditionally represented the five wishes of health, happiness, wealth, longevity and fertility.

Les Cinq Amandes is a one stop place for gifts from small favors up to large, custom corporate gifts. Lina is full of creativity, helping customers create truly one of a kind gifts. Her attention to detail across the brand makes every item feel special whether it’s a hand-painted lacquer box filled with an array of sweets or a single flavor in a basic box. “Everything needs to be perfect, look amazing, and taste delicious,” Lina explained.

They are tender and dare I say effervescent. The incredibly delicate sugar coating does not detract from the almond flavor. They are in a word – addictive. It is easy to see why the Les Cinq Amandes client base is growing exponentially due to word of mouth alone.

The Les Cinq Amandes collection also includes hand-wrapped chocolates and other unique bite-sized confections. Among them are 70% cacao Belgian chocolate pieces covered in the same light sugar coating as the almonds. Think of them as a high-end M & M. Lina says they are always trying to add something new whether it’s exotic flavors of chocolate and nuts or discovering new packaging and display ideas.
