italyHanuta is made by the Italian candy manufacturer Ferrero SpA in Alba (Piedmont) for the German market.

Hanuta is the short form of the three German words “HAsel NUss Tafel” (Hazel Nut Bar).

Hanuta is one of Germanies most popular sweet snacks. The tasteful product came on the market in 1959.

The taste of Hanuta is a true seduce. Hanuta consits of two crispy waffles on the top and the bottom. The filling is a creamy chocolate creation which is garnished with little pieces of hazelnuts.

It’s not a surprise to me that this kind of simple treat has such enormous success for such a long time. Hanuta is the perfect quick snack to calm down a hungry stomach, and a culinaric blessing for the senses on a high level for a reasonable price.

The chocolate filling of Hanuta has a creamy character and a fine flavour of coffee.

Carletti Chocolate Mørk Kaempeplade

Filed under: Danish Chocolate — admin @ 10:32 pm

denmarkCarletti Chocolate “Mørk Kaempeplade” cannot compete with the two other chocolate bars of Carletti which I have tasted before.

The white chocolate bar and the milk chocolate bar are much more tasteful than the dark chocolate of the Danish candy manufacturer.

carletti chocolate

The chocolate is not a bad dark chocolate, but a bit too average. There is no special flavour which makes me say “woohoo”. There is only a monotonous sweet taste of dark chocolate. The sweetness is also a bit too much for a dark chocolate bar. The cocoa content amounts 44 percent.

carletti chocolate

I could not find anything outstanding in that chocolate. This is the only negative point. I could eat the 200g bar without a problem at once.

carletti chocolate

The consistency of Carletti Chocolate “Mørk Kaempeplade” is hard and rough.

My personal summary: the chocolate bars “Hvid Kaempeplade” and “Lys Kaempeplade” of Carletti are much better.

icelandA chocolate from Iceland. How long I had to dream about such an exotic chocolate product from the island between Europe and North America?

Not just the origin is something special to me. Also the taste is something very unique. Kaffi Sukkukadi has a coating of light milk chocolate, and a filling of coffee cream and sticky cocoa liqueur mass. The flavour of coffee is very strong. While melting on the tongue the chocolate envolves a slight taste of cocoa liqueur.

As this kind of chocolate is very difficult to buy here in Austria, I have enjoyed every single fibre on my tongue. Yes, this chocolate is a good one. Yes, I really enjoyed it. Yes, I would buy it more often if it would be available in Austria.

A negative point? Yes, if you don’t like the taste of coffee, you wont be excited about “Kaffi Sukkuladi”.

The big chocolate bar of Karaliskas has a strong and hard character. I needed some strength to break the bar in two pieces.

The chocolate reminded me on Austrian cooking chocolate. It was such a full taste of bitter chocolate. I would say the chocolate is not so bad, but I would not rate it as one of my top chocolates.
Karaliskas Chocolate is a bit over the average.

Frey Chocolate

Filed under: Swiss Chocolate — admin @ 9:51 pm

switzerlandFrey is a Swiss chocolate brand which is almost as old as that of the European chocolate industry itself.

It started around the middle of the nineteenth century, when chocolate making changed over from manual to industrial production.

Frey Chocolate was founded in 1887 by the brothers Max and Robert Frey in Aarau. In its early days the company considerably influenced the way chocolate moved from being an exclusive indulgence for a few privileged people to being a sweet treat generally available to a wide section of the population.

I had the pleasure to taste the “Extra Fine Milk Lait exta fin Vollmilch” chocolate of Frey. A milk chocolate with a cocoa content of 31 percent.

The promise of an “extra fine” chocolate is not a fake. The chocolate is extra fine indeed. There is a pleasant creamy taste of milk chocolate. The chocolate melts quite smoothly on the tongue.

lys kaempeplade chocolate

I have experienced this chocolate product as a chocolate with a decent sweet taste. The chocolate is sweet, but not so sweet as Milka Chocolate.

lys kaempeplade

I would say Lys Kaempeplade has a classy Danish taste of the European north. Not too intrusively and not too intensive. A gentle milk chocolate, nice to enjoy.
