Do you like marzipan? I sure do. For me, just one bite of this sweet, almost exotically delicious treat says “It’s Christmastime!” more than any other holiday food. Made with a base of ground almonds, sugar and egg whites, it’s one of those polarizing things that people either love madly or just do not ‘get.’ If you don’t even know what Marzipan is, this post will tell you all you need to know about a marvelous thing that you should familiarize yourself with sooner rather than later. Tis the season, after all.
I happen to be in the pro-marzipan camp, so I fell hard for Marzipops marzipan candy lollipops and treats at the Summer Fancy Food Show here in NYC. Marzipops marzipan is so creamy and delicious, it literally melts in your mouth. Because it comes in all sorts of adorable shapes (almost too cute to eat) it is a fantastic idea for gifts and seasonal promotions! After reading my review of SFFS, the folks at Marzipops sent me a lovely sampling of their candies. Let’s check it out.
This assortment of tiny marzipan figures of Cute Animals would make ideal party favors for a child’s Birthday celebration. Each one comes individually wrapped, so they stay fresh and there is no mess. Marzipop’s goal is to provide exceptionally delicious and playful marzipan treats, and, as you will see, they do an excellent job.
There is so much going on with all of their unique designs, bright colors and hand-crafted excellence. Wouldn’t these little Donuts make a great gift for a co-worker?

OK, I this you know that these Pink Piggies are my favorite. In Germany pigs are a sign of good luck, and marzipan piglets are often shared amongst friends and family over the New Year to bring good luck over the next 12 months. Click that link to find out what the little emblems on the pigs mean.
