Did it already snow where you live? Here in Germany the first snow did already arrive – and that is quite unusual for December. Normally, it snows around January or February, or it does not snow at all. Because of this year’s early snow, we are so much getting into the Christmas spirit. We stroll a lot through the festive decorated city, visit the Christmas markets, and of course eat a lot of Christmas treats. It’s only 4 days until Christmas – in Germany we start to celebrate on the 24th – and we are in joyful anticipation. We hope that you feel the same and that we can increase your joyful anticipation with your December Candy German subscription box. It comes with a lot of different German chocolate treats and more. Some of you might already have received the box, we sent it on December 10th, some days earlier as usual. If you did not get it yet, I’m pretty sure it will arrive until Christmas.
Stollen is a very popular German fruit cake. Last year we sent a Stollen in your German candy subscription box, too. Many told us that they loved it and that they wished it was bigger, because it was gone so quick. So we thought: Why not send another Stollen – this time by another company!? The Favorina finest marzipan stollen contains – as the name says – marzipan. Furthermore it contains sultanas, candied orange and lemon peel, and spices and flavors that spread Christmas atmosphere. The Stollen is sprinkled with powdered sugar which makes it a rather sweet treat. The whole combination is extraordinarily good. I can’t imagine Christmas without Stollen. Enjoy!
A chocolate Santa – always a good choice for Christmas, isn’t it? This one is very big, it contains 150 grams of finest milk chocolate. The producer is the German candy company Riegelein Confiserie. It stands for high quality Christmas chocolates. Enjoy your delicious Santa, the chocolate will melt in your mouth. By the way, it is produced of Fairtrade chocolate, you can read this on the bottom of your Santa.
You can always find coconut macaroons on German candy Christmas plates, so there had to be a package of those in your holiday Candy German subscription box. You can read "echtes Traditionsgebäck" on the wrapping, it means genuine traditional pastry. In Germany coconut macaroons are known for being a Christmas treat since the 17th century. The Krombach Kokos-Makronen mainly contain coconut chips. They have a chocolate bottom. It’s a very simple German candy and it is so good. They are very juicy and the coconut aroma is adorable. The perfect treat for Christmas!
Every year Ritter Sport offers a special winter/Christmas creation. This year there were three Christmas sorts available, milk chocolate with a Spekulatius cream – Spekulatius is a traditional German Christmas cookie –, white chocolate with cinnamon and crisp, and milk chocolate with roasted and caramelized almonds. All three sorts are extraordinarily good, so we could not decide for one of them. Which sort you get is randomly decided. One thing is clear, no matter which sort you get, it will be extraordinarily good like Ritter Sport bars always are. Enjoy your taste of Christmas!
Edel Marzipan Brot = finest marzipan bread. This German candy is reminiscent of a loaf of bread. It’s a very traditional German Christmas treat and it will make all marzipan enthusiasts happy. The marzipan is very rich. Don’t think you can eat this German candy at once – it is very sweet and fills your stomach quickly. I always cut my marzipan bread in small slices – like a real bread – and eat it little by little. The dark chocolate icing is a perfect fit to the sweet marzipan. I’m sure that even those of you who are not so much into marzipan will enjoy this German candy.
When we saw this Christmassy bag we thought it was so pretty, we had to put it in your Christmas Candy German subscription box. But it is not only pretty, it is also very yummy. You will find 6 different Christmas chocolates in your bag, a small milk chocolate Santa, a bear, and a bell, two Wintertraum = winter dream nougat pralines, and a Wintertraum Apfel = apple bar. The mixed bag is also a nice small gift for anyone who likes chocolate and wants to try German chocolate.
**This is it for 2017, but don’t worry, we’ll be back in 2018 with more delicious monthly candy from Germany – promise! :)
Until then we send you a lot of love from Germany and wish you all a Happy Christmas – and for those of you who do not celebrate Christmas a wonderful time!**
