Caledonian, you are most welcome to as much marzipan as you can eat - you can even have my share! Grin

Marzipan filler on my 21st birthday cake is still a horrible memory, even after so many years - I never got to eat a piece of it because of that stuff! Grin

b-but why would one use marzipan as cake filling? I mean, I understand it's used as decoration and such, but filling? that ruins both the cake AND the marzipan.

Simnel cake is a fruit cake with a layer of marzipan in the middle and another on the top traditionally eaten at Easter and dating from the middle ages.
It tastes quite good but, speaking personally, no marzipan has ever survived long enough to get in or onto a cake if I am around - I'll eat it straight out of the packet .... (but I do feel guilty afterwards).

Those middle-ageians loved their sugar as it was so scarce and valuable as a result.

Anyhow, let us get back to the Victorian, steampunkiness of this food brand thread.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
In Madrid, we have the Casa Miro, purveyors of marchpane and turrón (turrón could be defined as marchpane taken to a higher, more splendid level) and peladillas since 1855.

The queues to enter the shop during the holiday season are most impressive.

I remain yours,
Prof. Cecily




Available at my supermarket as an import from Spain: El Almendro brand turrón (hard type) .  The marking on the box claims the brand dates to 1883. Any information on that?

PS
They're charging for it like it was made of gold,  though...

Yes, the El Almendro brand is a famous one for quality turrón in Spain.
And by no means the most expensive!

My information states the firm was founded in 1905.
http://www.levante-emv.com/portada/2011/09/14/turron-almendro-volvera-casas-navidad/839480.html

1883 is a type of turrón, odd as that may seem. It's the premium quality the firm offers in their line of turrones.

As we get close to Christmas, the supermarkets are carrying a few unheard of brands just for a few weeks. Avaliable too is Gluwien and various nut shortcake biscuits /cookies from Northern Europe, so it lets me take a peek at European brands.

I doubt if Keiller's marmalade would be allowed? (but, they are credited with producing the first "Dundee Cake").

Damn!  I thought they were confined to buying American brands.  They're buying British too?  They're the largest baking conglomerate globally already.  

http://www.grupobimbo.com/en/our-group/in-the-world.html

http://www.grupobimbo.com/en/our-group/heritage/time-line.html

And speaking of acquisitions by Grupo Bimbo, two of its brands may be of interest to this thread. The first one is Entenmann's,  and the second is Sarah Lee.   While Sarah Lee is questionable because the company changed names in the 20th C.,  Entenmann's is traceable to 1898, and I don't remember if I added it to the list:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entenmann%27s

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Lee_Corporation

I'm at my local supermarket now,  but when I get back I'll review the heritage if Bimbo's acquisitions.

That little white bear mascot looks kind of evil to me...

Fisherman's Friend Throat Sweets first made in 1865.  Apparently they still make 5 billion of them a year, which amazes me as they taste disgusting.

Well not quite a food, initially medicinal, now a sweet but they can be eaten I suppose.

I had a packet of them yesterday, aniseed flavour and they were lovely. Gave them to my children just to be cruel.

Van houten cacao, origionally a dutch brand now property of a swissman. Since 1815.
Became popular in the UK for a while and contributed to the popularity of dutch styled interiors.
Their slogan was something about chocolate being better than tea but I do mot quite recall.
