Bitter and stodgy
Probably the worst stollen I've had. Very bitter (almost like they'd used bitter almonds, though I think the bitterness was mostly from the fruit). Damp on top, mushy marzipan, incredibly stodgy and seemed rather stale. My husband and I took a slice and a half each - he ate his, despite not liking it. I ate half of mine and chucked the rest and then, with his agreement, chucked the rest of the loaf. I had bought two of these stollen loaves(some weeks ago) so that one could go into the freezer for Christmas, but I doubt we'll be eating that one, either. You can do better, Tesco... please try!
Having been brought up in Germany, I know what Stollen tastes like, and this poor product doesn’t taste anything like it. Totally tasteless, heavy, sticky mush. Don’t buy it. It’s awful.
Good xmas treat.
I look forward to these being in stock every year. They freeze well. Have been a very tasty treat at christmas time when unexpected guests arrive for a coffee. Being a confessed marzipan addict one slice is never enough. I just hope not too many people find out how tasty they are so i can keep buying them ! So what if they're not authentic. We love them!
I must have got a fresh one because it was lovely and moist. Love stollen - why didn't I order two?
Poor, tasteless Stollen
Very poor Stollen. Not worth buying.
Nothing like real stollen
Looks like a stollen, has some rather inferior marzipan paste in it, but there the resemblance to authentic German stollen ends. It had the taste of a bath bun, and a slightly undercooked one at that. None of the spicy richness of real stollen. Would not recommend.
worst stollen ever - not worthy of stollen name
love stollens - look forward to every festering season to treat myself!!! Bought this garbage soft gooey paste-like marzipan and almost ZERO sugar coating just a dull overbaked pasty stodge that even my eat anything labrador refused
Really stale and hard inside. Completely unimpressed and was really looking forward to this. Do not buy!
This is the worst stollen I have ever eaten. Too stodgy, and there is no marzipan inside just gloopy sugar paste.
Although this is not the best, it is very good. If memory serves me correctly, it is one of the moistest stollen I have had, but this was actually a welcome change, as I could eat this without having to put any butter and jam on it - which has been the case with some in the past. There is a reasonable amount of marzipan and dried fruit. Although the photo seems to shows a an excessive amount of icing sugar there wasn't the thick coating, but just enough. I intend to purchase at least one more this year.
