Kenan: What do little children yearn for this time of year? The sweet treats they ask Santa for more than any ever. The confection they dream up most of all, is it candy canes? Hershey Kisses? No! It’s…
Kids: Marzipan. Yayy.
Kenan: That’s right. Marzipan, the mostly almond almost candy from Boubakeur, Germany with the flavor of nuts, but the texture of nuts. And what is its name?
Bowen: Ah! [just shouts out in happiness]
Kenan: it comes in any shape you can think of as long as you mostly think of banana.
Chloe: Mine’s a little apple.
Marcello: And mine’s a pear.
Sarah: Mine’s a little unshaped log.
Austin: Me too. He-he-he.
Bowen: Mine’s… Ah! [just shouts out in happiness]
Kenan: That’s right. The child’s choice. The candy with as much protein as a bite of steak. But don’t take it from me. Take it from these strange British children.
Chloe: I love Marzipan. You can almost taste the taste.
Marcello: I used to think that the best candy was Circus peanuts. But now I know it’s Marzipan.
Austin: If a stranger said to me “Come in my car, I’ve got candy,” I’d say, “No.” But if they said “I have Marzipan,” I’d say “Abduct me, baby.”
Kenan: As soon as you finish one, you’ll want another and that’s probably enough. Just remember, don’t eat it within 12 hours of going to sleep or after 12 hours of waking up. Now children, would you like to see our expert chef making a fresh batch?
Austin: Me? I’ll go. I’m oldest.
Michael: Hello, there. I’m making Marzipan.
Austin: Is the recipe a secret?
Austin: Is it just almonds?
Austin: Do you mush them up?
Austin: And then it’s Marzipan?
Michael: Yes. Oh, wait, let’s see if the batch is ready. [Michael tastes a little bit] Yuck, it’s perfect. And remember, it must be refrigerated and consumed within 50 years.
Sarah: Oh, it will never last that long.
Kenan: Now look what I have, children.
Chloe: Is that what I think it is?
Kenan: That’s right. A brand new pack of M.
Chloe: Mine’s a little pig.
Sarah: Mine’s baby’s ass.
Marcello: I think that’s a pear.
Bowen: Mine’s a little me. Oh, oh, oh.
Austin: Oh no. One is missing. Someone has stolen a Marzipan.
Kenan: Oh, silly me. All right, children time for the big number. The Marzipan reel.
And now the song.
Kids: [singing] Marzipan, Marzipan
chocolate can’t do what Marzi-can
children love a special treat
how bout one that’s almost sweet
I’d like a bite, if I could
flavor is almost good
if my Marzipan could talk
It would say I taste like chalk
Male voice: Marzipan, you’ll believe your mouth. In the German aisle of CVS.
