It’s time for your 2018 holiday Candy German boxes. I know many of you are waiting for November’s and December’s boxes. Again we found very special original German holiday treats for you. Let us begin with the November box, which some of you probably already received, some of you will receive by the end of the month. If you missed the November box make sure to order your December box until December 10th, 23:59 GMT.
Stollen is a very popular fruit cake that is eaten around Christmas in Germany. We always put it in one of your holiday Candy German subscription boxes, because you always let us know that you love Stollen. Either you got a butter Stollen or a Stollen filled with marzipan this year. Your fruit cake contains sultanas, candied orange and lemon peel and spices and flavors that spread Christmas atmosphere. Your Stollen is sprinkled with powdered sugar which makes it a rather sweet treat. The whole combination is extraordinarily good. I can’t imagine holiday time without Stollen. Enjoy!
If you like German Lebkuchen (gingerbread), I’m sure that you like these gingerbread hearts. The gingerbread is very soft and spicy. There is a sweet and fruity apricot filling in the centre of each heart. The dark chocolate icing is a perfect fit to the gingerbread. Weiss is a brand by Lambertz. It stands for quality and indulgence – the proof are their gingerbread hearts which by the way are suitable for vegans.
Marzipan Brot = marzipan bread got its name, because 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 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 the Zentis Marzipan Brot.
Domino Stars, better known as Domino Steine (Domino Stones) must not be left out in a holiday German candy subscription box. Domino stones are a must-have for Christmas. They can be considered as a mixture of flavors and textures. From the inside they have three layers. On the bottom there is a spicy gingerbread layer, the second is a fruity jelly one and the third is marzipan. From the outside the Domino Stars are covered by thin chocolate. Sounds good, doesn't it? Yes, the Domino Stars taste phenomenal, we love to eat them in Germany. Domino Steine were invented in 1936 in Dresden, Germany. Today they are produced in Aachen. I love all Kinkartz products. On the wrapping of the Domino Stars you can read "unverwechselbar im Geschmack". This means distinctive in taste – I agree!
On the 6th of December we celebrate St. Nicholas’ Day in Germany – and in many other countries too. As your November Candy German box will reach you around the end of the month, we thought why not put a chocolate St. Nicholas in your box, so you can enjoy it on St. Nicholas’ Day. The Riegelein St. Nicholas consists of smooth milk chocolate.
Aachener Printen are a special sort of German Lebkuchen (gingerbread) that is baked in Aachen since 1820. You can compare them with a honey bread or spiced bread in taste. The term Aachener Printen is a protected designation of origin, and so all manufactures can be found in or near the German city Aachen. There are Printen recipes that result in a very hard pastry, so you really have to worry about your teeth when you eat them. The Nuss-Schoko-Printen in your monthly candy subscription box are a soft and juicy version. We think that this variation tastes much better than the hard one. They have a light spicy flavor and a phenomenal crunchy texture because of the nuts. The dark chocolate topping is so good and fits to the sweet Printen perfectly. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea!
Don’t forget to get your December Candy German subscription boxes – another box full of German Christmas treats is waiting for you. Ordering stop for the December box is December 10th, 23:59 GMT. We will send the December box out some days earlier, so everyone will probably get it until Christmas.
