Niederegger is one of many brands stocked by the online retailer Chocolates Direct. They’ve got marzipan for all occasions, proving that this almond-sticky delight is not just for Easter or Christmas. It’s no secret that quality chocolate comes from quality ingredients, and the Niederegger brand uses 100% marzipan paste.
Marzipan is traditionally a balance of almonds, sugar and egg. Most consumer marzipan consists of 50% marzipan paste and an additional 50% sugar.
The company is in Lubeck in Germany. And, if you fancy visiting the town hailed the ‘Venice of the Baltic’ you’ll find the brand’s cafe there too, and you can eat cake like this marzipan slice.
The generous people at the online retailer sent me a lovely ‘care package’ including products from the new range.
‘Loaves’ are essentially marzipan bars, covered in chocolate. Here’s the Rum & Raisin loaf, sliced.
The Mini Bakery Desserts Pralines Selection (112g, £8) takes its inspiration from the New York coffee shop. Flavours include Blueberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Cupcake, Toffee and Tiramisu.
The Black and White Loaf (125g/£4.50) was such a success in 2019 it’s now a more permanent feature. The box of 16 mini-loaves is a combination of white and dark chocolate.
If you ever get stuck for a present Chocolates Direct make hampers too. The company is an official retailer for Bendicks, Niederegger Marzipan and Elizabeth Shaw.
