Candy

I'm 12 and I love this I remember back in Spain and Puerto Rico I would always eat these and I loved them now I'm a lot of stuff but I just say Hispanic cause I'm all the stuff Cuban Latina Spanish Puerto Rican Portuguese and some black from my father now that I live in Las Vegas I haven't had these in years but me and my Abuela were in the store and I saw them and I immediately grabbed a bag of ten and I showed her and she bought it for me and here I am now getting them every year ( I was 8 when I saw them in the store) for my birthday and I still love them overall the best Mexican candy I have ever had 😊👍I had my childhood in California and remembered mazapan from the old days. I've lived elsewhere for many years, and I don't know where to find this candy in New England. I'm sure someone has it, but I couldn't tell you where. Naturally, I was pleased to find it. My box of De La Rosa mazapan arrived promptly and safely from MexGrocer, and it's fresh and delicious. I got a chance to introduce friends to something they hadn't seen before. Surprise: they liked it too.I lived in Mexico City during my early childhood and grew up eating these candies. We then moved to Texas where I was able to attain them. I now live in West Virgina where they are not available so I am really glad to have found this website. The Mazapan's came in as ordered and well packaged. They are fresh and I am glad I can expose my son to my culture. Mazapan's are a wonderful peanut confection that melts in your mouth!

Sugar

Marzipan is more of a sweet paste (similar to fondant), made with ground almonds, powdered sugar, almond extract and egg white. The predominant flavor is almond. Mazapan on the other hand, is made with grounded peanuts & powdered sugar only. It tastes more like Reese's peanut butter cup and used as a candy and not as a paste.marzipan (maçapão) is used to make fruit-shaped sweets; in the Algarve region in particular it is a very common sweet. There are other regions, as Toledo in Spain in which marzipan (mazapán) is shaped into simple animal shapes, and sometimes filled in with egg yolk (yema) and sugar. In Greece and Cyprus, marzipan is made in a variety of shapes and sizes and is almost always left white.In the United Kingdom, celebratory fruitcakes are decorated with a layer of marzipan- particularly Christmas cake which is covered with white sugar icing, and at Easter the Simnel cake contains a layer of marzipan, a further layer decorates the top and 12 spheres symbolise the apostles of Christ- the marzipan is lightly grilled or toasted to colour it. Battenberg cake, which originates in England, is covered in a layer of marzipan.

Marzipan originates in Asia and the Middle East. Mazapán is distinctly Mexican in that it replaces the almonds with peanuts, which are of Latin American origin. We add corn, which is, of course, native to Mexico. The origin of the peanut is likely Brazil, and it had already travelled to Mexico by the time the Europeans arrived. The Mexican name is “cacahuate” which comes from the Nahuatl word, ““cacáhuatl.” (Source: adanmedrano.com)
