Confectionery Product Review - Marks and Spencer Dark Chocolate Marzipan Candy Bar

Updated on October 8, 2012

Maybe you love chocolate. In fact I’m pretty damn willing to bet that you do! There is, it’s true, the odd freak out there who can claim to be able to take or leave the stuff – or even to actually dislike it. But not very many, not at all!

Marzipan, on the other hand, is an entirely different matter. According to who you ask, you may be told that it’s one of those ‘Marmite’ kind of things – i.e. you either really really love, or alternatively passionately hate it. The whole marzipan Christmas cake issue highlights the choice you have to make. Are you one of the people who carefully peels the marzipan and icing off your fruitcake, eats the icing, eats the cake, licks off the apricot jam and bins the marzipan candy? Then this probably isn’t the candy bar for you!

On the other hand, if you’re a lover of crunchy, delicious almonds, of almond syrups and coffee flavourings, almond cookies and liqueurs, then almost certainly you’re also a lover of marzipan. And if you like marzipan, then you usually love it! You should definitely try Marks and Spencer Dark Chocolate Individual Marzipan Bar in that case. The flavour of the marzipan itself is light, delicate and not too sweet (which is very important for those of us with more adult taste preferences). The chocolate, dark and quite chunky, is thick enough to nibble off, which is great for those of us with juvenile confectionery-eating habits! And we all know that dark chocolate goes just great with marzipan: although the milk chocolate decoration is pretty good too.

At thirty-six grams, and one hundred and sixty-five kilocalories per bar, this isn't a snack that's likely to wreck your weight-loss diet. And for the vegetarians, yes, it's suitable for your dietary preferences too. Are you looking for a delicious almondy snack today? Try out Marks and Spencer Dark Chocolate Marzipan Bar: I can personally recommend it!
