    Love your honesty Hannah. I might even opt to dive into the hoards of Halloween candy in our home before I tried this.

    This is not something I would ever consider buying, as I have yet to taste a marzipan that wasn’t disgusting. But you may have convinced me to give it another try, if I come across this chocolate bar.

    Ooooooh yum! That’s the ONE (and only, blush blush) Choceur block flavour I haven’t tried and I love marzipan.

    Note to self – RUSH OVER to nearest ALDI at earliest opportunity……

    Hmmm cant say I am the biggest fan of marzipan actually 🙁

    6 weeks til Christmas – I am trying to ignore that – though the shops make it harder and harder! Glad there was no orange lurking in this bar though the different sugars are a little disturbing

    Quite frankly I’m disappointed that they went with just 5 types of sugar. Come on! There must be dozens of different types of sugar! Get at least 10 of them in there or don’t bother at all. I’m writing a complain letter. “Dear Choceur, I have never bought one of your products but I would like to express disappointment…”

    Like a list of Santa’s reindeer… too cute 🙂 Only 6 weeks til Christmas Eve?!?! EEk, I’ve gotta start shopping already!

    Hehe so the Moser Roth might be considered a success if they were trying to achieve orange-flavoured arsenic flavoured chocolate huh? I don’t like faux almondy marzipan either but real marzipan is delicious!

    Marzipan is evil and gross and has a special place in hell with almond essence/extract and they should both stay down there and not terrorise the good people of non-Hell.

    That chocolate looks amazing!

    Heh, I was studying GRE flashcards and “cloying” came up. Of course, I thought of you.

    When I worked at Godiva, there were marzipan hearts for Valentine’s day that looked so cute — and tasted SO terribly marzipan-y. I always warned people not to buy them. Probably not good business sense, but I’m fairly sure these people did not know what marzipan was, and they were not expecting THAT after paying $2 for what appeared to be a single truffle. I was doing a public service!

    Butterfat, shmutterfat. I’d eat this stuff up!
    I want to point out that you used my favorite word of all time in this post (well, it has only been my favorite word of all time for the past year or two, and it’s subject to change, but you know what I mean): ostensible/ostensibly. 😀

    As soon as I read Aldi chocolate I thought….., Oh No…, but then apparently this one gets the thumbs up, maybe it was just the orange in it last time that got you going huh, nice to know a good old supermarket chocolate has some excellent points & passes muster.

    I just love that you bought 5 blocks of this untested chocolate right off the bat. Yes, they are tiny little 40gm morsels, but 5! Will have to get to Aldi sometime soon and check this out, since I don’t appear to be in New York and can’t buy all those other fabulous chocs you keep blogging on about.

  16. Agnes

    Oh, I also wondered how you ended up with five blocks of this chocolate!

    But wait, you purchased four more blocks of chocolate from Aldi? I hope they’re nice….

  17. kaitlin

    very special

    You’re so lucky to have Aldi in Canberra! I moved from Germany – The Aldi Country – to Perth and: no Aldi here! I’m addicted to Aldi chocolates, especially the marzipan and the white coconut chocolate… I have to get friends in Melbourne and Sydney to send me a parcel full of chocolates to Perth… *sigh*

    You should be working for Willy Wonka!

    As a descendant of the Rumland family, owners of the Schokoladenfabrik Rumland in Hamburg I loved Rumland marzipan since about 1945 when, unfortunately the firma was in decline and my contact with them was their courtesy of accepting in commission Dollhouses I made and to display and sell them from their store.
    The company recovered and, over the decades that followed, my mother would bring me Rumland Pralinen when she visited me in the Dominican Republic. During my infrequent visits to Germany I would try to get this treat and I taught my children to love it also…I wish all that I taught them would have gone down so easily.
    Aldi uses the name Rumland for some of their products in Germany: Aldi Rumland Nugat Kugeln can be found in the Internet.
    Bye for now.

  21. Vosges Marzipan Bar

    […] marzipan chocolate confection. In order to set itself apart from the likes of, for example, Choceur’s Marzipan Chocolate, Vosges uses specifically Sicilian** marzipan made from sweet and bitter almonds, adds in a healthy […]
