Mozart Truffles

My co-worker Amor S. brought me some chocolate truffles that she got on a recent trip to Austria.

The round one on the left was dark chocolate filled with pistachio paste, somewhat like marzipan but not very sweet. I liked it, and the chocolate seemed very high quality. It had a rich deep chocolate taste, and it melted readily in my mouth.

The one on the right was similar, being dark chocolate with hazelnut paste. It was somewhat fruity tasting but I am not sure there was any fruit. Anyway, it was really good too.

Amor said this brand seemed popular in Austria and Germany with both locals and tourists, and I agree it was very good. Now I want to visit Vienna!

 

 

Choco-Lina Sheepmilk bar

Robert brought this unusual bar back from Germany, where he was working at a game conference.

This was a strange bar. It’s made with sheepmilk, something I have never tried before. I labeled it as a dark chocolate bar. I am not sure why this is not a milk chocolate bar instead of a dark chocolate bar with milk, but that’s what the label says. In any case, I really liked it. The 70% cacao made it very deeply chocolate flavored, and the sheepmilk made it smooth and taste a little bit like cinnamon. It was a good flavor combination. I don’t think I’d want to eat this regularly, but it was fun to try. This was also the first bar I’d ever had from Austria!
