Wow this is a beautiful summer in Germany this year! I cannot remember such an awesome summer in years. Usually we have a lot of rainy days, but this year most of the summer days are sunny and warm. What is the same as every year is my appetite for candies and snacks and so I am constantly snacking on the treats you can find in your August German candy box. Let me tell you about them.
This month’s savory snack are the NicNacs by the German potato chips and snacks producer Lorenz. These double-crunch-peanuts are covered in a spicy and crunchy shell. So simple, so very good! The coating reminds me of a barbecue flavor, it’s very salty and kind of cheesy. It’s difficult to describe the flavor correctly, but what I can say is that the NicNacs are extraordinarily good. I have to eat the whole bag once it is open – great that there is a XL bag in your Candy German subscription box.
If you are subscribed to Candy German for a longer period, you probably got Prinzen Rolle before, but you never got the Black and White Prinzen Rolle, which are a new product by the German cookie and pastry company De Beukelaer. A delicious milk cream is sandwiched between two crispy cocoa butter cookies. There are 14 cookies in your package. The cookies look like American OREO cookies, but in my opinion they taste much more creamy. What do you think? Let us know!
Do you like peaches? I love peaches. In fact peach is a seldom flavor found in German sweets, so I am always very happy to find the Trolli Pfirsichringe. Trolli is a well known German wine gummy producer, but I think we never put a Trolli product in your monthly candy box from Germany before. The peach rings are mouth-watering. They have a marshmallowy bottom and a fruity top. The whole ring is sprinkled with sugar. This German candy comes with 7 vitamins and it tastes so juicy because there is real peach juice in it. Yum!
Although the name says Russian bread, this German treat is not produced in Russia, but in the German city Dresden – since 1845. Either you got the Russian Bread Original or Coconut by the German pastry company Dr. Quendt. The Russian Bread Original includes cocoa, the Russian Bread Coconut includes roasted coconut. Both taste so good and crunchy. Perhaps you are wondering why this German treat comes in letters. I found an interesting theory – it says that people used to believe that eating letters would help them to learn reading. Perhaps you should give the Russian Bread to your toddlers. ;-)
The producer of this unique German candy is Frigeo. The company is very famous in Germany since 1925 because of their Ahoj-Brause (sherbet) which you received in your Candy German subscription box before. This month you get Frigeo’s fruity and crunchy puffed rice, which partly consists of rice and partly of corn (Mais). It reminds me a lot of the Ahoj sherbet in taste and color. It is extremely fruity and at the same time sour and sweet. The four colors red, orange, yellow, and green remind me of raspberry, orange, lemon, and sweet woodruff, but I'm not sure because it's not labeled on the wrapping. Especially kids love to eat this German candy, it is very crunchy, and because of its color and pellet-shape fun to eat.
There are three Corny bars in your monthly candy subscription box from Germany: the chocolate bar, the chocolate banana bar and the milk bar. I love all three of them. The chocolate and chocolate banana bar have a milk chocolate ground which is added by a crunchy and thick cereal layer that is kind of sticky and stretchy. Both bars contain honey and have a chocolaty taste. The chocolate banana bar additionally has a nice banana flavor. The Corny milk bar is different. It consists of a milk cream layer which is sandwiched between two cereal layers.
