This bar of pure German Marzipan is the perfect way to taste Niederegger's exceptional marzipan on its own. Or if you're looking for the best quality marzipan for stuffing dates or dried figs, look no further. Marzipan originated in the Orient and made its way to Europe during the Crusades. Luebeck, a port city on the Baltic Sea in northern Germany, became the capital of marzipan production in Germany. It is now over 200 years, that Niederegger has been producing world-famous marzipan delicacies. The quality of marzipan is judged by the amount of sugar in the product. Niederegger uses 100% marzipan paste, with no added sugar. A secret ingredient similar to rose water is added to the marzipan paste to give the Niederegger marzipan a note of distinction.
