Attention Marzipan Lovers!
« on: November 22, 2012, 10:47:36 pm »
There are some pretty nice marzipan bars of various types in Lidl at the moment, to be found with the Christmas chocs.  Particularly the pineapple one.

Unless you are concerned about your weight...

 :P

P.S. Beware of the very thin foil!

Marzipan is one of those Marmite type things. I absolutely hate the stuff and am sure that Niederegger is managed by Satan and staffed by demons!

What is it with yous? ;)

Don't tell me - you peel the marzipan off the Christmas cake and discard?

Me, I just love the Niederegger (especially the long thin rectangular one), plus the Ritter, plus the.....

It was good!!!  Suffice to say that a few people will be finding these in their Christmas stockings.  Thanks again.

I don't just discard the marzipan, I get rid of the whole cake. I can't stand Christmas Cake, it's too sweet and a waste of good fruit. Give me a proper Yule Log any day!

I actually tried one of these and it was good! Although I don't like marzipan, the pineapple flavour and textured featured well and toned down the marzipan to an acceptable level. I cut small slices of this bar off for consumption during Corrie. I only had a few slices and it went down very well. :)

I love xmas at Lidl, they do all kinds of scrummy things, but I think I love their pineapple marzipan the most.  :D
