I'll watch more carefully when buying sweets. For me the city of marzipan was Lubeck and I was partially wrong.

What a learning day we are all having. I didn't know this - and it sounds just delicious.

Then the people of Pilisvörösvár must be known for their sweetness. :)

Marzipan! how do I love thee :) Unfortunately, I hardly ever stop in Pilisvorosvar (maybe the bakery) as I drive to and from my cousin's house in Nyergesujfalu.

I bought some for my family before I went back to France for Christmas, and forgot them in Pilisvörösvár. I came back only five days later but didn't have the chance to taste it : it was not lost for everyone... I buy some from time to time, I happen to love it ;)

Yum!

I had not thought of a product only made in one place ... I once heard that all the Pepto-Bismol was made in a neighboring town from where I live. Not as appealing to highlight has your Marzipan.

Elise said...

Of course marzipan is made in many places, but Szamos is made in Pilisvörösvár. And if the brand name is very well known in Hungary and around, it's not the same in the entire world...
