Awhile back La Fuji Mama sent me a dark chocolate covered marzipan loaf because as she wrote in her note, "I just couldn't stand the thought of you never having tried marzipan before", she is so sweet!
Apparently the Japanese customs must have thought it was some kind of weapon though because they opened the package.
I enjoyed the marzipan, the ground almond and sugar paste had a hint of cherry flavor and sort of reminded me a little of coconut too. It was covered with dark chocolate, balancing everything out.
Thanks again for being so kind La Fuji Mama!
