It’s November 20th – time for your first 2016 holiday Candy German subscription box! Time goes by so quickly – it’s the third year of Candy German and the third time we send you all the best Christmas candies from Germany. We hope, everyone has a great pre-Christmas season and is looking forward to the festive time – so we do. The best way to look forward to Christmas is to indulge in delicious holiday treats. Today we tell you all about your November Candy German subscription box.
Stollen is a very popular German fruit cake. Last year we sent a marzipan stollen in your German candy subscription box. This year we decided to send a butter stollen by the German pastry company Kuchenmeister. Beside the butter it contains raisins, orange and lemon peel, and spices and flavors that spread Christmas atmosphere. The stollen is sprinkled with powder sugar which makes it a rather sweet treat. The whole combination is extraordinarily good, the butter flavor is awesome. I don’t want to spend even one Christmas without stollen. Enjoy!
Domino Stars, better known as Domino Steine (Domino Stones) must not be left out in a holiday German candy subscription box. As well as stollen, domino stones are a must-have for Christmas. They can be considered as a mixture of flavors and textures. From the inside they have three layers. On the bottom there is a spicy gingerbread layer, the second is a fruity jelly one and the third is marzipan. From the outside the Domino Stars are covered by thin chocolate. Sounds good, doesn't it? Yes, the Domino Stars taste phenomenal, we love to eat them in Germany. Domino Steine were invented in 1936 in Dresden, Germany – the Kinkartz Domino Stars come from the German city of Aachen that is located near the Dutch border. Aachen is one of the most traditional cities when it comes to German holiday treats. That’s why the company Lambertz, that is the producer of the brand Kinkartz, is located there. I love all Kinkartz products. On the wrapping of the Domino Stars you can read "unverwechselbar im Geschmack". This means distinctive in taste – I agree!
If you like German Lebkuchen (gingerbread), I’m sure that you like these gingerbread hearts. Either you got the hearts with apricot jelly filling or with dark chocolate. The gingerbread is very soft and spicy. The dark chocolate icing is a perfect fit to the gingerbread. Weiss is, as well as Kinkartz, a brand by Lambertz. It stands for quality and indulgence – the proof are their gingerbread hearts.
On the 6th of December we celebrate St. Nicholas’ Day in Germany – and in many other countries too. As your November Candy German box will reach you around the end of the month, we thought why not put a chocolate St. Nicholas in your box, so you can indulge in it on St. Nicholas’ Day. Moser Roth is a very well known quality chocolate brand – especially I love their dark chocolate products. So we decided to send a dark chocolate St. Nicholas. It consists of 70% cocoa which is UTZ certified. The intense dark chocolate flavor is delicious and the St. Nicholas looks so pretty!
No Christmas without cinnamon stars! I don't know how many cinnamon stars I have eaten until today – we always bake Christmas cookies, and cinnamon stars are always on the top list. It's quite difficult to make them, because the dough can be a bit sticky what is tricky while cutting the stars – nevertheless, it is more than worthwhile all the work. I can't stop eating them after I have tasted the first. You don't have to worry about making cinnamon stars by yourself, because we found some really exquisite ones for you that we put in your German candy subscription box. The texture is soft, and the fine cinnamon taste is phenomenal. The sugar icing complements the cinnamon stars perfectly.
The last German candy we put in your monthly candy subscription box is Blätterkrokant. In my family we always put a huge candy bowl on the living room table for Christmas time, I'm sure lots of you do the same. Blätterkrokant, which is brittle of nut crunch, is always in this bowl. From the outside it is covered in very creamy and rich milk chocolate, the inside hazelnut brittle is extremely crunchy and deliciously sweet. I love it!
