3 fabulous reasons why marzipan is good for you

Marzipan is a sweet treat that is a great alternative to chocolate. Not only is it tasty but it’s good for you too!

We all know chocolate is good for us but what about other sweet treats like marzipan? Marzipan can come in many forms – some examples include an alternative to icing or those cute little fruits you see around Christmas time. There’s a lot more to marzipan then you might think – this German originated treat has a number of health benefits that makes it taste even better to eat. Here’s some of the top reasons you’ll want to put marzipan on the top of your shopping list.

The top ingredient is almonds

Who would have thought this sweet treat is comprised mostly of almonds. Almonds are a lot softer than most traditional nuts and are a great source of protein and healthy monounsaturated fat.

Top up your Vitamin E

We all need a good amount of vitamins in our diet and whilst you could opt for supplements, it’s is also a great way to get your daily dose of Vitamin E (it tastes better too!). The vitamin E comes from the almonds and is essential for a healthy immune system.

It’s full of lots of other goodies too

Good quality marzipan also contains calcium, potassium, magnesium and Vitamin B. How many other sweet treats can you say are that good for you!?

A great way to enjoy marzipan – especially for a newbie – is with a delicate coating of chocolate like the Niederegger Marzipan Christmas hamper I was recently gifted with by Chocolates Direct. The perfect Christmas present for someone with a sweet tooth who wants to try something a little different. It does contain quite a lot of fat and sugar though so try to enjoy them in moderation!

If you like the look you can buy the hamper for just £25.00!
