Marzipan. Yes or No?

My sister sent this photo of some marzipan pigs.

Almond paste confections taste good to me,  but I know a lot of people who pass, no matter what shape or color the marzipan takes.

I’m sure you’ve seen fruits and vegetables, animals, or marzipan incorporated into a pastry at a bakery.  Some people find it gross.

Marzipan, yes or no?

Good luck for the New Year.

  1. A big YES from me, too!! Especially in Christmas Stollen from Trader Joes or
    Medi-Terra Bakehouse. The latter was sent in a “brown paper package, tied up with string!!!!”
    Marzipan is definitely a “favorite thing!!!!” 🙂 XOXO

  2. Anything almond for me! Marzipan in small amounts. Cute pig and “good luck” to you too!

  3. Maybe. I’m not opposed and I will try them but they always look better then they taste.

  4. I’m a no on marzipan. I’ve tried it, and to me it tastes like wax. That said, I read an article that said, “Don’t yuck my yum” – so if you find it yummy, that’s all that matters. 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
