Rübezahl Spongebob Chocolate Lentils Chocolate

Filed under: German Chocolate — admin @ 11:30 am

austriaThe Spongebob Chocolate Lentils Chocolate is a very creative idea from a chocolate manufacturer from Germany. “Rübezahl Schokoladen” is the name of the German company which can be found in the South Western part of the country, close to the city of Stuttgart.

Rübezahl produces chocolates since more than 50 years. The chocolate factory is specialized on season chocolate like Santa Claus chocolates or Easter Bunny chocolates. In this case we have something completely different from all christmas and easter chocolates. This is a chocolate dedicated to the famous cartoon character “Spongebob”.

The special delicacy consists of milk chocolate with a cocoa content of 30 percent, and little chocolate pieces with a sugar icing and tasteful chocolate inside. Similar to the famous m&m’s. Those chocolate pieces are called “Chocolate Lentils”.

Those colourful “chocolate lentils” shine through the chocolate bar. Very impressive for little children. I suppose.

But the best of all is the taste. It is a tasteful chocolate product indeed. Very creamy milk chocolate, and a strong flavour of sweet cocoa. The little chocolate lentils inside the bar are an additional attraction, and increase the enjoyment by a crispy character.

Rübezahl Spongebob Chocolate Lentils Chocolate is a very good product with a great taste.

Weibler Confiserie Chocolate

Filed under: German Chocolate — admin @ 7:34 pm

austriaWeibler Chocolate is located in Cremlingen. A town of 13.000 inhabitants, in the centre of Germany, close to the city of Braunschweig.

The chocolate confiserie and factory was founded in 1988 by the passionate chocolatier Peter Waibler in Braunschweig. Before he was a teacher in the school for confectioners in the town of Wolfenbüttel. Two years later the place became to small, and he decided to move to Cremlingen.

Today the company employs more than 95 workers. Since 2002 Weibler Confiserie Chocolate is managed by Matthias Weibler, who is the son of the founder.

I had the pleasure to taste a Weibler chocolate portrait of a golf player with a weight of 85 gram. The cocoa amount was 35 percent. This product consisted of milk chocolate, decorated with white and dark chocolate, and green decoration mass.

The chocolate is very sweet, but quite okay. If you take a huge bit and get all the milk, dark and white chocolate at once, you are able to feel the chocolate flavours of all different chocolate types together. A quite nice experience.

Such a flavour reminds a bit on the Milka Triolade chocolate bar.

austriaKlett Chocolate “Choko Winter” is a milk chocolate from the German town Nehren with a cocoa content of 30 percent, and has a filling of little crunchy Speculaas biscuit pieces.

The Klett chocolate factory already exists since more than 50 years. At first the founder Walter Klett was specialized on chocolate hollow characters. This is also the basis of his success until today. 200 different chocolate are available.

Choko Winter is quite sweet, but not too bad. A positive experience depends on the requirement if someone likes milk chocolate or not. The little buscuit pieces inside the chocolate care for a crunchy character.

Quite nice experience. Tasty, creamy, and crunchy … 🙂

Peters Chocolate

Filed under: German Chocolate — admin @ 11:46 pm

austriaPeters Chocolates are manufactured in a simple coffee house, in the German town of Lippstadt. Lippstadt is located in Western Germany, close to Dortmund city.

The coffee house called “Cafe Peters”, which also serves as a little chocolate factory, was founded in 1936. Soon the special place of sweet dreams became the most popular cake shop, confectionery, and coffee house in the whole town.

Today Peters Chocolates are known as “luxury pure”. I have received bitter chocolate filled with truffle cream and garnished with gold dust. The comercial slogan of Peters Chocolate is “The sweet sides of life”.

Peters Chocolate is sold in a flat tin with 8 pieces. These look quite esthetical and well shaped.

My first taste experienced a strong layer of the finest bitter chocolate with a soft and crunchy filling of truffle cream. Peters Chocolate can be described as luxury bitter and rather divine. Some crispy ingredients in the truffle cream boost the enjoyment at high altitudes.

That was definitely a fantastic chocolate and a great experience!

Sea Salt Chocolate

Filed under: German Chocolate — admin @ 8:55 pm

sea salt chocolateHeilemann Confiserie Chocolate “Sea Salt” was one more unique chocolate experience in my life. Chocolate with salt. Is that acceptable? Well, at first it’s something new. I have never seen or tasted salted chocolate before. Many people are bored about usual chocolate creations, and they are searching for something new. Sea Salt Chocolate could be something interesting for those kind of people.

The chocolate itself is very fine and tender. It goes smoothly down the throat. The content of cocoa amounts 32 percent. So this is quite a good quality. There is not doubt about that.

sea salt chocolate

The first impression is the fine chocolate flavour from Heilemann confiserie. Heilemann chocolate factory is famous for its good chocolate productions. Some seconds later the first taste of salt is noticable. After more and more melted chocolate, the salty taste becomes stronger and stronger. Sometimes it’s possible to taste a real big grain of salt. Then the salt taste is really extremely strong.

sea salt chocolate

Well, I think that kind of salted chocolate is quite funny to taste for the first time. But for a second or third time? I don’t think I am going to buy another bar. Salt and chocolate does not really fit together. It’s a funny experience to taste it one time, but that was it.

But deep respect to the Heilemann company. They made out of such a weird combination, salt and chocolate, a truely acceptable candy.  I mean, the final result does not taste horrible … just “funny”. 🙂

germanyKarina is a chocolate which is manufactured in Cologne, a city in the Western part of Germany.

Karina is a dark chocolate with a cocoa content of 72 percent called “Chocolat Noir Bitterschokolade”.

Very dark, very pure and very good. Those three attributes came spotaneous on my mind after my first bite.

This kind of dark chocolate tastes like a dark chocolate has to taste. Karina Chocolate is not too bitter, and has a flavour of the purest chocolate enjoyment.

I am surprised about the cheap price. I payed less than one Euro. I have tried much more expensive chocolates with a much higher price which had not such a wonderful taste.

karina chocolate

I must admit that Karina is a true German chocolate dream. The price-performance ratio is almost unbeatable.

So here we are going to have the main item of the Reber chocolate factory: the Echte Reber Mozartkugel.

reber chocoate

The coating consists of tender milk chocolate which melts smoothly on the tongue. The filling is an ennourmos mass of pistachio with an intensive character. It’s almost that strong you might expect an alcoholic filling. But officially there is no alcoholic filling. The Echte Reber Mozartkugel is quite unusual in the taste, compared with a Mozartkugel from Austria, but I would say it taste not too bad.
