Marzipan - not for us thanks, not sure why as I love almonds (the basis of marzipan) but just cannot enoy marzipan.

I think it may be to do with the sweet version used in cakes such as battenburg, or traditional wedding cakes. Mum used to love battenburg, and I had a real dislike for it, so cannot bring myself to eat it in any form now.
Katrina has no real reason other that "yuck!" not sure that helps

As Snoozeman said, it is really big in Northern Germany, and if you ever see a product by Niederegger you are looking at one of the top names.

Guess you will have to try it now, and let us know what you think
