Pigs are a traditional German marzipan shape, typically given at New Year's as a sign of good luck. This lucky pig is made from finely ground almonds combined with a binding sweetener. The delightfully sweet and mildly bitter taste of the almonds will have you coming back for more!
In the German language, "Schwein gehabt" or "having a pig" means being lucky. It's an expression that comes from medieval times, when a farmer who had bred a lot of pigs would be having a banner year.
