Marzipan candy descends from a centuries' old tradition, the combination of almonds and sugar. The resulting 'dough' is quite pliable, and confectioners use this attribute to create whimsical figures before toasting them in an oven. The result is these marzipan 'figuritas'. There are about 12 per box.

At the battle of Navas de Tolosa in the year 1212, it is said that the nuns of the San Clemente convent took care of the wounded soldiers. According to tradition, they ground up their stores of almonds in mortars and pestles, and then kneaded them together with sugar to create emergency rations. This type of bread (pan) produced with a pestle (maza) is supposed to have given rise to the name mazapán in Spanish - marzipan in English.

Ingredients

Almonds (50%), sugar, water, stabilizer (sorbitol), and preserving agent (sorbic acid). Produced in a facility that uses wheat.

    "I love the flavor and texture of this marzipan, but it's a little too sweet for my taste. I'll probably continue to get it anyway but would love to find an alternative."

  • Roberto  
    "The 1880 figuritas are terrible when compared to the Delvida figuritas LaTienda used to sell - these are too sweet, seem to have less % almond, and get stale (turn hard instead of staying soft) after a few weeks. The former Figuritas were excellent."
