Happy New Year everyone! A new year of Candy German starts – and yes we are still here for you and spoil you with the finest German candies, chocolates, pastries and more every month. 2019 starts with a very chocolatey German candy box. It’s on the way to your door and will arrive soon.
Dickmann's have many different names in Germany, e. g. Schaumküsse = foam kisses or Schokoküsse = chocolate kisses or Schoko Strolche = chocolate thugs. No matter how they are called, they are always delicious and a very traditional German treat. They consist of a wafer topped with a sweet egg white foam covered in chocolate – dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. In your package there are 24 foam kisses, 8 of every chocolate variation. Such a huge box, awesome, isn’t it? Thumbs up for Storck, the producer of this Dickmann's, it's really a delicious fun treat.
Wow, Milka always has great ideas for new chocolate bar creations. Why don’t put a whole OREO cookie into a milk chocolate surrounding?! Basically that is it what the German chocolate company has done. And it tastes wonderful. Try it and love it!
Let us make a short history discourse. I’m sure you know that Germany was divided into two parts a long time ago – West (Federal Republic of Germany = FRG) and East Germany (German Democratic Republic = GDR). Since the German reunification in 1990 there is only one Germany. Before the reunification, west products weren't available in East Germany and east products were not sold in West Germany. One former east product are the Halloren Kugeln (Halloren balls). Luckily, today you can find them all around Germany, and in your January German candy subscription box. The Halloren Schokoladenfabrik (Halloren Chocolate Factory) is known for being the oldest German chocolate factory. The first mention of the company is recorded in 1804. It was founded in the east German town Halle where its headquarters are still today. The factory also owes a museum, the Halloren Schokoladenmuseum (Halloren Chocolate Museum), which includes exhibits about the history of chocolate, chocolate making equipment, and much more. The Halloren Kugeln are the factory's most popular treat which received its name from the early salt workers whose buttons the balls resemble. There are plenty of different Halloren Kugeln sorts – we decided to send you their January sort of the month, which is Apfel-Zimt in Zartbitterschokolade = apple cinnamon in dark chocolate. On the package you can see that the small balls are filled with a dark and light filling. It looks like a fluffy cake filling, but actually it is very fudgey. The Halloren Kugeln phenomenally smell like apple and cinnamon, the perfect atmosphere for cold January days. And they are very sweet, so if you are craving something really sweet, the Halloren Kugeln are the right German candy for you. The back of your package even suggests a recipe. You can put a Halloren ball into a muffin and bake it. Then you get a muffin with a melty apple cinnamon center.
Do you like coffee flavored chocolate? Then this Schogetten bar is perfect for you. Actually it’s not a bar, because there are small bite sized chocolate chunks in your package, so you don’t have to break your bar into pieces and can eat it right out of the package. The Latte Macchiato centre is divided into two parts – just like a real Latte Macchiato. There is a coffee layer and a milk cream layer. All this is covered in smooth milk chocolate. Enjoy!
The German candy company Trumpf is known for their aerated chocolate. I enjoy aerated chocolate for many years but never asked myself how it is produced. It is chocolate turned into a foam via the addition of gas bubbles and then cooled so that it becomes hard again. You can read more about this procedure here. Trumpf’s Aero Zarte Vollmilch Luft-Schokolade bar consists of delicious milk chocolate. When you bite through this bar it is very crunchy and airy. I’m sure you know what I mean, if you have ever eaten aerated chocolate. Trumpf is a brand by the German chocolate producer Ludwig Schokolade. It exists for more than 150 years.
This dark chocolate bar originally was invented for men. You can read "pour messieurs" on the wrapping. I don’t know why a German company uses French language for its product, probably because it sounds more noble than German language. I also don’t know why there is a chocolate bar just for men as if women don’t like dark chocolate. As far as I can tell, Schwarze Herren chocolate is eaten all around Germany by men and women – and soon in your house too. This bar is Germany’s most popular dark chocolate. It is very simple and tasty. The German candy company Stollwerk invented it in 1903.
This Knoppers nut bar is quite new on the market. Before, there were only Knoppers sandwiches. Probably you know these, because we sent them before. The nut bar reminds me of a Snickers bar and not so much of a Knoppers sandwich. But I love Snickers, so that’s perfect for me. Perhaps the Knoppers Nussriegel can be seen as the German Snickers. What do you think? Like Snickers the Knoppers bar has hazelnuts in caramel inside. What is different from Snickers is that there is a wafer inside the bar, which gives it an extra crunch and the milk cream layer is typically for Knoppers. Thumbs up for the German candy producer Storck!
