Traditionally, Jordan almonds grew out of the tradition of serving almonds at celebrations in ancient Rome. During the Renaissance, almonds were garnished with honey for enjoying during special occasions. Then, in 15th century Italy, it is believed that the first sugared almonds made their appearance. Since that time, Jordan almonds have evolved into a classic celebratory treat that's present at weddings, christenings, baby showers, and many other special occasions.
Weddings are particularly significant when it comes to Jordan almonds. In fact, there's a traditional poem that goes along with Jordan almonds when they're served at a wedding reception:
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!
