Is it already warm where you are living? In Germany we already had about 17 degrees some days ago, flowers start to grow, the days get longer, and we are in the mood to spend as much time outside as possible. Easter is such a nice feast, isn’t it? You can celebrate it outside, the kids can search their Easter baskets on the lawn, the first sunrays drive out winter, and everybody gets fresh energy. I’m really looking forward to Easter – not at least because of all the delicious treats that are around then. Some of you perhaps already got their Easter Candy German subscription box, and had the chance to try some of the following mouth-watering delicacies.
As I said in past year’s Easter blog post… no Easter without a chocolate bunny. This year you get a very beautiful and big Easter bunny – either a milk chocolate one, or a dark chocolate one. The chocolate is quite thick, so your bunny won’t break easily. Both sorts of the bunnies are very creamy and delicious. I imagine it will make a unique gift in any Easter basket – such a beautiful eye-catcher!
Do you remember the company Lambertz? Yes right – we sent some of their products in your Candy German Christmas boxes during the past years. For Easter they have an assortment too. The Waffeleier are definitely my favorite Lambertz Easter treat. The little eggs, that are surrounded by a wafer and covered in dark chocolate, consist of two halves. One is filled with a light cream, the other half is filled with a dark cream. The light cream has a slight vanilla taste, the dark cream a chocolate one. This German Easter treat is great. The cream is very sweet and tasty and the chocolate coated wafer is very crispy – yummy!
An upgrading in appearance and taste for every Easter basket are these Knusper-Eier = crispy eggs. Either you got the almond crispy eggs or the yoghurt crispy eggs. The almond eggs are filled with crispy rice (9%), and almond cream (22%). The yoghurt eggs are filled with low-fat milk yoghurt (22%), and rice crisps (10%). Both egg sorts consist of smooth milk chocolate. The almond sort is very sweet but not too sweet and creamy. I love every nutty, creamy chocolate treat, so the almond crispy eggs are just perfect for me. Same for the yoghurt eggs. They are kind of light, almost fruity, with a nice sour and sweet yoghurt taste – yummy! Both sorts are very crispy and the milk chocolate shell just melts in your mouth. I go into raptures…
Blätterkrokant = brittle of nut crunch is a treat that appears in your German candy subscription box during Christmas and Easter. That’s why we eat Blätterkrokant in Germany during – guess what – Christmas and Easter. Many emails reached us asking for more of this German candy, so we inserted a big package in your monthly candy subscription box. From the outside the Blätterkrokant is covered in very creamy and rich milk chocolate, the inside hazelnut brittle is extremely crunchy and deliciously sweet. There are 7 to 8 Blätterkrokant goodies in your package. I think the German candy company Ludwig Schokolade (Trumpf is one of their brands) did not only do a good job in the treat itself, but also in the product design. I love the green bag with the colorful flowers on it. It’s so springlike. Enjoy your little gourmet bites.
I mentioned it many times before: Germans love to eat marzipan. I know that not everyone loves it, but whenever we put a marzipan product in your Candy German subscription box, we get a lot of emails saying "Normally I don’t really like marzipan, but the marzipan treat you put in the box was great – you made me a marzipan lover!". So we try to find the best German marzipan products for you the German candy universe has to offer. This Easter you have the chance to indulge either in the Ananas Edelmarzipan Ei = pineapple marzipan egg or in the Edelmarzipan Ei mit Nougatfüllung = marzipan egg with nougat filling. The eggs consist of two halves. The pineapple egg is covered in dark chocolate, the nougat egg in milk chocolate. Both are filled with a marzipan paste that has either a fruity pineapple heart, or a smooth and creamy nougat heart. The heart of the pineapple egg is additionally filled with a small amount of real Jamaica rum. The alcohol taste is well noticeable but not too intense. The nougat egg is a combination of marzipan, nougat, and milk chocolate – one of the best combinations I can imagine. I cannot eat the whole egg at once, because it is very rich. Therefore I cut it in thin slices and repack the rest of the marzipan egg in the beautifully designed wrapping. There is not much more to say about this German candy – just try it and love it!
These chocolate lollipops have the shape of an Easter bunny. You get two oft hem in your German candy subscription box – one consists of milk chocolate, the other of milk chocolate and white chocolate. It's a very simple treat, as delicious as most simple things are. The manufacturer of the Schoko Lollies is Eickmeyer & Gehring Schokoladenfabrik. In their assortment you can find a lot of different chocolate lollipops on which their production is specialized.
Last but not least here come three small treats that are perfect for putting in every Easter basket. All three of them consist of smooth milk chocolate. They are really cute and a perfect bite when your sweet tooth just aches a bit.
We wish you all a happy Easter, a beautiful beginning of spring, a lot of sunlight and warm moments, love, and happiness! As always, we are happy about your feedback on your candy from Germany at firstname.lastname@example.org.
