Where to find Niederegger Marzipan in bay area?

SerenaE Jul 18, 2012 09:58 PM

We picked up a few bars of Niederegger chocolate covered marzipan by chance a few weeks ago in Germany. They are soooo good! Now we are very sad that our stash is running out. Has anyone seen them in local stores? Thanks a lot!

    Cost Plus, although they may only have it seasonally (around Xmas). I believe Fog City News has it, but it will be $$$.

      We found them in Cost Plus indeed, I would never have thought checking out there! They say they carry them all the time. Now we are very happy we can have a constant supply of the Marzipan :) Thank you!

        You're welcome! I have to say, though, that I prefer See's -- it's moister.

      You might call Lehr's German Specialties in SF.

        This is not the time of year to ship but Ingeborg's Chocolates in Solvang has some of the best chocolate covered marzipan I've ever had outside of Germany. Google the name or type in Solvang Chocolates.

          I too am a fan of cc marzipan. My go to brand is Schluckwerder also found at Cost Plus market but next time I will pick up your Niederegger and do a comparison. BTW marzipan is excellent paired with Port wine.

            You can also get high quality marchpane at ordinary supermarkets, then dip it in tempered chocolate yourself. I like the brand Odense, from the eponymous city in Denmark. It's found easily in the baking-supply section of Safeway. The importer is in Connecticut; the almonds come - like almost all almonds - from the Central Valley. A little hand-formed loaf of Odense marchpane dipped in a bit of Michael Recchiuti chocolate: you're tasting the deliciousness of globalization.

              Walgreen's on 18th and Castro always used to have the red foil-wrapped chocolate-coated bars. Go figure! Haven't been there in a while so am not sure if they do at the moment.

                If you want to try a locally made product, G. L. Alfieri, which has a hallway shop in the Ferry Building and also sells at the farmer's market, makes milk or dark chocolate covered marzipan that they call "Almond Nuggets." Bet you can't eat just one!
