To be honest, we were a bit concerned about the summer months, because we cannot put chocolate in your Candy German subscription box during the hot time. But our concerns proved to the unfounded – you love your German treats as always and you let us know so constantly via email. Thank you for this! Sure, German chocolate is great – perhaps we can put some chocolate in next month’s box again, no promise… let’s see how temperatures develop –, but the German candy universe has so much more to offer. Convince yourself and have a look on August’s German candy subscription box.
These are a must-have when it comes to German candy. We wanted to put Katjes Yoghurt-Gums in your monthly candy subscription box many times before, but they were never available in the amount we needed them. This month we (and you) were lucky. Those little fruity gums are a perfect fit for summer – yoghurt combined with fruit, this sounds like summer, doesn’t it? Katjes Yoghurt-Gums are produced since 1971. Originally they were produced using animal gelatine. Today the company Katjes renounces on animal gelatine, so the yoghurt gums are suitable for vegetarians. What never changed is the taste of the little goodies. They come in the flavors cherry, lemon, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, and pear. The fruit flavor is very intense and the added yoghurt makes the treats very soft and creamy. The German model Heidi Klum is a huge fan of the yoghurt gums. She was in the company’s commercials for many years. Here you can see one of those commercials
Tuc is a very famous German cracker by the company Griesson – De Beukelaer. It is eaten a lot in Germany and in other parts of Europe as well. Probably there is no party or come together where no TUC crackers are on the table. The crackers are salty, buttery, and very crunchy. I love to eat them with a dip, e. g. cheese or even a sweet dip like Nutella. In October 2015 you received the Milka TUC bar. There you had the sweet and salty combination as well, so you know what I mean. The product’s slogan is "TUC – always fits!" I have nothing to add.
I know, many people don’t like licorice, but trust me, the Sallos drops are awesome, they are definitely my favorite German licorice candy. Those of you, who are subscribed to Candy German for a very long time now, had the chance to try Sallos before. In August 2014 they came in your monthly candy subscription box for the first time. We were not sure what the resonance on this treat will be, but in the end it turned out that it was extremely positive and that we turned some licorice haters into licorice fans. I agree. I always have some of the individually packed Sallos drops in my handbag. They have a very full, but not too intense, licorice flavor which I love. At the same time they have a very fresh flavor. The sweetness of the goodies balances and harmonizes the licorice flavor. I could go into raptures – try this German candy and you will love it too.
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 last month in your box. 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 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.
Last month you received the Haribo Balla Stixx in your Candy German subscription box. Perhaps when you see this month’s Hitschler package you think it’s quite the same, but that’s a mistake. Although the shape of the treats is similar, they taste completely different. Volles Rohr means full pipe. And that’s how this German candy looks like. The "pipe" is filled with adorable vanilla foam. The vanilla flavor is very intense. It tastes so so good, especially in combination with the gummy "pipe". Either you got the strawberry or apple version or the XXL version which contains bigger pipes and different flavors like strawberry, apple, orange, and cassis. OMG, I love the company Hitschler for their Volles Rohr products. They are definitely the best. They are sprinkled with a sour sugar from the outside – so the outside is fruity sour and the inside vanilla like sweet.
If you are a subscriber since we shipped the very first Candy German box (June 2014), you already know Prinzen Rolle. Probably Prinzen Rolle is the most popular and most eaten cookie in Germany, beside Leibniz. A delicious cocoa cream is sandwiched between two crispy butter cookies. I love to eat Prinzen Rolle with a cup of coffee – I soak them in the coffee so that the butter cookie becomes soft and the filling melts – so good! There are six full size cookies in you package.
Wow, what was this?! That was the consensus of your emails when we put the Gletscher Eis goodies in your Candy German subscription box the first time in January 2016. You wanted more, here is more. The producer of these goodies is Villosa that is a part of Katjes since 2000. It’s quite difficult to describe the taste of the Gletscher Eis bonbons because it is so different from every other candy. Perhaps it would be the best way to describe it by starting with the name. Gletscher Eis means glacial ice. What I connect to glacial ice is something very cool and fresh and that’s exactly how the Gletscher Eis bonbons taste. They are kind of sour and minty but sweet at the same time. They are also kind of fruity although there is no fruit contained. The taste is kind of weird but I like these goodies. They are a very unique taste experience – and very refreshing in summer!
