Niederegger Marzipan Torte

I don't even like marzipan. Mostly because so much of it is not chocolate. But a co-worker brought this Niederegger torte back to the office from Germany, so the least I could do was eat it.

Oh my lord. It was great. It wasn't like American marzipan. It was just better. Inexplicably, magically better.

BOTTOM LINE: Go to Germany. Eat some chocolate-covered marzipan. Rethink all your previously held dessert opinions.


  1. Hi, so glad you enjoyed the Niederegger Marzipan Torte.
    Although Luebeck, Germany (where Niederegger Marzipan is produced)is a beautiful place to visit, Niederegger Marzipan is available right here in New York City and other fine food stores across the nation.
    Please contact:

  2. They also have them in bodegas and Economy Candy (of course), though I've never seen the full tort!
