Welcome to Magyar Living!

Isten Hozott! Welcome!

We are a family owned small business celebrating Hungarian heritage and have been in operation since 1988.

Many of you knew and loved my mom, Elizabeth A. Szabo. Magyar Marketing was her vision for helping families discover, celebrate, and share Hungarian heritage! Even though my mom passed away in 2008, we continue this important work she started and we continue to gather a variety of resources to encourage you to share your Hungarian heritage! If you are looking for our online store look for Magyar Marketing Store (towards the top right hand side of this page) and click on the box. Or CLICK HERE to shop. If there is something you are looking for but you can’t find, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-786-7851 or send an email to

Are you interested in visiting Hungary with Magyar Living Tours? We have three trips planned for 2018. Click here for more information and please call me to ask any questions!

Our family appreciates your support of our business. It is our hope that we can learn from one another how to better discover, celebrate, and share our Hungarian heritage with those we love!


Magyar Marketing Special #136




Mid-November 2017

As you gather with family and friends over the upcoming months, be sure to share photos and listen to the important stories shared by all generations! We were so blessed to meet so many extended family members on a trip to Hungary in 2012 and while it was just 5 years ago, so much has changed in that time, including the passing of some members of our family in Hungary. Now is a great time to make that special Hungarian meal or dessert or use the Herend porcelain you have to make some new memories. Record some stories on your video camera or smart phone, take pictures, break out some new and old recipes, and enjoy your time together!

Our flavors this year are rum-raisin, coconut, chocolate-cherry, caramel, jellied, cottage cheese-lemon, or a mixed bag that has just a few different flavors in it. CLICK HERE TO ORDER!

Szaloncukor is Hungarian Christmas candy! It is a tradition in Hungarian homes to hang these beautifully wrapped candies on the Christmas tree. When the tree is lit the foil wrapping on these candies adds a special sparkle to the tree! Sneakily, young and old alike carefully unwrap the candies hanging on the tree, eat them, and then stuff and re-wrap the empty candy wrap and hang it back on the tree! When it is time to take down the tree, there are usually no candies left!

We love when customers send us photos of our products being a catalyst for important conversations within a family. Here is the story on this photo: “We received the 1910 Hungarian map the other day.  I wanted to share this picture of my dad and son.  My dad was pointing out the towns where his parents were born. Both came to the U.S. when they were teens/young adults. In the picture, my son is pointing out Budapest.  We had eaten lunch in an amazing Hungarian restaurant in Ewing, NJ earlier that day.  I showed my son a picture of the city they had on the wall and explained how Buda is on one side of the river and Pest is on the other.  So my son felt the need to explain to his Poppop how the river goes through the city.”

Call Liz at 1-800-786-7851 to order this map. The $35 price includes shipping to the lower 48 states!
