Candy German is starting its third year of existence. Yay! When we founded our small company in May 2014, it was just an experiment for us. Today, two years later, Candy German is a remarkable success. Every month we ship German candy around the world, which means a lot of fun for us. Thank you for all your support and feedback! Candy German also gives us the possibility to communicate with people from all the different places around the globe. Especially in times like these, this is much appreciated. Many greetings from Germany to the USA, Japan, Israel, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Iceland, Spain, Sweden, China, Mexico – only to mention a few countries we ship our German candy boxes to. Now it’s time to let you know what comes in your June Candy German subscription box.
Friesen = Frisians are a population group who are located at the North Sea cost of Germany and the Netherlands. Friesen Blätter = Frisians’ leafs are mostly baked and eaten there. One of the most traditional German cookie and pastry companies Coppenrath invented a fantastic variation of the Friesen Blätter. Those are very crunchy and buttery. Coconut flakes are added to the crusty baked pastry as well as a hint of lemon. It’s so very good to soak the Friesen Blätter in a cup of coffee or tea – enjoy!
Either you got these chewy candies in the sweet or in the sour variation. The sweet variation in the blue bag comes in the flavors apple, lemon, cherry, and strawberry, the sour variation in the green bag comes in the flavors strawberry, lemon, orange, and apple. The Hitschies are very fruity and a perfect summer treat. From the outside they are covered in a crunchy sugar coating, the inside is very mellow and chewy. Additionally, the sour variation of the Hitschies is sprinkled with sour sugar. Did you realise the skyline on the top of your bag? It’s the skyline of Cologne where you can see the Cologne Cathedral and the television tower for example. The German candy company Hitschler is located in Cologne – which, by the way, also is our hometown.
The Dinkelchen come for the second time in your monthly candy subscription box from Germany. Many of you told us that they want to see this German candy again, after we sent it the first time in January 2015. A company that has a Dr. title in its name, that must produce healthy stuff. Ok, perhaps you can argue that the Dinkelchen are not as unhealthy as other candy is. ;) They consist 30 percent of spelt flour, 2 percent of spelt bran, 8 percent of Russian bread, and – here comes the not so healthy ingredient – 50 percent of milk chocolate. I think you now ask yourself what Russian bread is. In Germany it is known as a dry pastry which is made out of a foamy cocoa and egg white dough. Usually you can get it formed as lettres around here, for example the company Dr. Quendt is a producer of Russian bread but I also know a Bahlsen Russian bread variation. So the Dinkelchen have some of this Russian bread inside and a lot of other good stuff. It's quite an unusual German candy but it tastes very good. The manikin on the package is so cute, I guess children love the Dinkelchen.
Maoam yay! One of my all time favorite German sweets! Many don’t know that the producer of this chewy candy is Haribo, but it is. What can I say about Maoam?! When I have to mention five German candies I eat since my childhood, Maoam is definitely one of those. I guess in Germany exists not even one kid who never ate Maoam. There are five small packages included in the foil, each one contains individually packed little fruity chewing candies. The Tropical Bloxx is a special variation of the original Maoam which original came in the flavors lemon, orange, strawberry, cherry, and raspberry. As the name suggests, the flavors you got are more tropical: banana, pomegranate, coconut-pineapple, mango-mandarin, and passion fruit will satisfy your sweet tooth. I love the Maoam tropical mix. The flavors are really unique and completely different from what you expect in a chewy candy usually. Indulge in your tropical summer feeling!
Here comes your second savory product in your German candy subscription box ever. NicNacs by the German potato chips and snacks producer Lorenz are peanuts 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 – don’t let us think about the calories peanuts naturally have.
Even for me this German candy is new. I ate Fritt stripes before – we also had them in your monthly candy box before – but never this cola and orange variation. Probably that’s why this sort is new on the German candy market. I love cola and I love the combination with orange, so of course I love Fritt Cola & Orange. The producer Ludwig Schokolade added cola and orange flavor to the chewy soft Fritt stripes. They are wrapped individually and are subdivided in small chunks. The stripes have a very delicious, mouth-watering intense flavor! There are six stripes in the package.
You got a Tender roll before in your Candy German subscription box. This time you get another sort. Tender Milch simply means Tender Milk. A milk cream is put on pastry which is rolled. The whole treat is covered in smooth Milka milk chocolate. That’s mainly what is Milka Tender all about. As the name suggests: Tender is absolutely tender! The combination of the ingredients is just perfect. I love to eat tender in the afternoon together with a cup of coffee or tea.
