“Best Marzipan in the world!”

Jacinta & Maria Chocolates
Ranked #1 of 1 Bakeries in Toledo
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 3, 2014 via mobile

Toledo overflows with marzipan shops but we wanted the best - so following a tip from tripadvisor we found the little shop called Jacinta and Maria Chocolates along Calle de Sta Fe. And they truly have the best marzipans. Paco, the owner told us that his marzipans are made by hand with no artificial flavorings and preservatives. He gave us samples to taste -- they were really really good - we bought 10 packs!

I have to add that Paco is not only a very charming shopkeeper, he is also a very talented calligrapher.

This is not a restaurant but a sweet & marzipan shop (there are many in Toledo). What makes this place special is the owner. It is a pleasure to meet someone who obviously loves what he does and wants to share it with you. If you want to buy marzipan in Toledo (and you will) then go here.

A true gem in Toledo. Learned the history of marzipan from an owner whose talents extends to calligraphy. Come for a snack and leave with a smile and a new friend. Do not miss this special shop

Six of us were on a Grand Circle Tour and on our free time wandered into the shop because my husband wanted ice cream. We had a fun experience, great ice cream, and I have never liked marzipan, but liked the marzipan so much we bought some. I'm sure it is so good because of the third ingredient--love.

Didn't have time to check out all the other wonderful looking products as we had to get back to the tour. Don't miss this experience!

Thank you for a fun and tasty experience!

Wandering the streets of Toledo we discovered this marvellous little sweets shop near a Cervantes statue, and were introduced to the delights of hand made marzipan. Paco was a charming host, who displayed his calligraphy after we had selected our sweets to bring back to Australia. A most memorable visit!
