Koufeta, Sugar Dragges (Jordan Almonds)
$64.90 per box (1 kilo | 2.2 lbs | about ~ 175 almonds)
In traditional Greek Weddings and Baptisms the Sugar Covered Almonds are called “Koufeta” and placed in small Organza bags referred to as Favors or Bobonieres. Each guest gets a Favor.
Traditionally the Bobonieres are filled with 5 Almonds but can be any indivisible number (3, 5, or 7 but not 9 because it is divisible by 3). They are indivisible, symbolizing how the newlyweds will share everything and remain undivided. Fresh almonds have a bittersweet taste, which represents life. The sugarcoating is added with the hope that the newlyweds life will be more sweet than bitter. The 5 almonds have a significant meaning wishing the new Bride & Groom happiness, health, wealth, children and a long life. One Wedding Favor is given to each guest at the wedding. Tradition holds that if an unmarried woman puts the almonds under her pillow, she’ll dream of her future husband.
From Traditional to More Modern Enhancements Theo Doro can assist in hand selecting Matching Items for your Big Day! Consider adding a delicious Sweet Pebble in addition to Koufeta to your Bobonieres for a Sweet Modern Twist on an Ancient Tradition!
