This product consisting mainly of almonds and icing sugar is manufactured in Estonia already since the Middle Ages. The old Hanseatic cities Reval (now Tallinn) and Lübeck are both still fully convinced that the right of discovery of marzipan belongs to their city. Most probably nobody remembers the absolute truth about the origin of this sweet, which does not decrease the value of marzipan in the eyes of sweettooths. Also in Estonia, the first marzipan was made in a pharmacy – in the oldest constantly operating pharmacy in Europe, the Tallinn Town Hall Pharmacy, which was first mentioned in written sources already in 1422. The marzipan-making traditions of Kalev date back to the first half of the 19th century. Thanks to the soft consistency of the marzipan of Kalev, it is excellent for cakes, handmade candies and other delicacies. The marzipan of Kalev can be easily moulded and rolled; it can be used for making a delicious cover for cakes, making decorations and as a filling in handmade candies etc. Marzipan is very good for eating as it is – it is a pure and natural product with no added preservatives. Everyone who love the real almond taste will love it.
