Candy German Box Review


Hallo guys and dolls!

Today, I'm going to show you an amazing box that I recently had the pleasure of discovering (and savouring), called Candy German (www.candygerman.com). Candy German is a monthly subscription box, full of authentic, German candies, cookies, snacks, chocolates, sweets and more! Yes, I already ate all the goodies. No, I don't feel guilty.....I see it as a ''cultural'' experience ;) Are you ready for a virtual tasting tour? This is very exciting because these German treats are so difficult to find anywhere outside Germany! Here below is the box I received; each Candy German box contains 6 - 8 handpicked, German delicacies by the way. My box contained 7 delicious goodies (and weighed about 1 kilo!):
Milka Tender Milch.  I'm a chocolate addict so the first item I grabbed out of the box was this chocolate covered, milk cream filled, spongy cake roll. I've never seen these in Italy! It's SO good. Or I should say SEHR gut :)
Haribo Sour Gummy Bears. Haribo is a well-known German confectionery company and though I do buy the regular Haribo gummy bears in Italy, I had never seen nor tried the sour version! I love sour candies so these are perfection (and so addictive)!!! The flavors contained in this bag are strawberry, green apple, lemon, orange, pineapple and rasberry. These little bears are coated in tangy-sour sugar....oh, I like them even more than the regular Haribo bears! 
Coppenrath Friesen Blatter. Thanks to the wonderful descriptions on Candy German's blog (here), I found out that Coppenrath is one of the most traditional cookie and pastry companies in Germany. These cookies are crunchy, buttery and coconutty. I tried to eat only one but that didn't work out..........
they're delicate yet luxurious:
 Fruchtiger Knusperpuffreis mit Mais by Frigeo. These are so much fun and so unique! They are little fruit-flavored puffed rice and corn balls that taste sweet and sour. I've never had anything like them! At first I thought they would be like Rice Krispies but these are more colorful and bursting with flavor!
Haribo Maoam Tropical Bloxx
I don't want to sound repetitive but these are sooo good. They're chewy candy and the flavors are exotic: passion fruit, pineapple-coconut, banana, pomegranate and mango-mandarin. There's nothing not to love about these candies. Plus, 5 pieces of these correspond to 5 portions of fruit,  right? ;)
Haribo Little Cupcakes. Where have you been all my life?? Oh, in Germany, of course. These are also so special and so cute! I don't know if they're available in other countries...they're definitely not available here in Italy and I think they're fairly new in Germany too! I had so much fun ''making'' the cupcakes. Yes, because you get to assemble the cupcakes yourself by choosing the cupcake ''base'' (lemon biscuit or caramel cookie) and then placing the ''frosting'' you like (blueberry, orange, vanilla, strawberry, cherry or lemon) on top. The consistency is particular; I thought they would feel like gummy bears but they're actually foamy! You have to try them out to see what I mean:
Almost too pretty to eat....ALMOST! ;)

Frigeo Ahoj-Brause. I found out that this product (Ahoj sherbet) is a very traditional German product that goes way back. You sprinkle the powder into a glass of water (or directly on to your tongue!) and it starts to fizz! The flavors I received are: raspberry, orange, lemon and sweet woodruff. They're sour yet sweet, refreshing and fun, both as a drink and as candy!! 
Here's a little clip of me trying out the raspberry Brause - Pulver on Instagram:
 
Ciao a tutti! 

Spero che vi sia piaciuta questa degustazione virtuale del contenuto della mia scatola di Candy German (www.candygerman.com). Quest'azienda che si trova a Colonia, spedisce ogni mese, una scatola piena di dolciumi, merendine, cioccolati, e snack tedeschi, autentici e golosissimi! I prodotti che spediscono sono difficilmente reperibili se non in Germania, il che rende questa box, un vero tesoro! Adoro scoprire novità, e quando si tratta di dolci...mamma mia, divento matta. Non so voi, ma io non ho mai visto le cupcakes di Haribo in Italia! Non sono adorabili?? E poi le bustine fruttati di ''polvere'' dolce-amara, che con l'aggiunta di acqua, diventano bevande dissetanti?? Poi i biscotti burrosi al cocco....tutto mi è piaciuto insomma! Mi sono divertita tantissimo e le mie papille gustative e la mia pancia sono rimaste pienamente soddisfatte. Box straconsigliato! Candy German spedisce ovunque, anche in Italia, gratis. 
Auf wiedersehen!

******************************************************

After trying out all these German delights, I'm thinking of moving to Germany. Then again, I don't need to actually transfer to Cologne because Candy German delivers worldwide for free! I'm sure you are also impressed by the contents of this Candy German box. The sweets are one-of-a-kind and I can guarantee that they are delicious. The service is equally sweet, by the way!

A special thank you in fact, to the founders of Candy German, Natascha and Mark for creating such a unique, fun and delicious box and for making it available to candy lovers all around the globe. That way, no matter where you live, you can have a taste of Germany at your door!

  4. Most of anything Haribo I've seen is just plain old gummy bears. There's a European market in my city that allows me to find stuff you guys have only over there. I really like kinder bars

  14. yay Haribo! I live in the UK so we get Haribo and Maoam and Milka. But with Brexit who knows now. Ohhh but I've never seen the cupcake Haribo though! That's so cute. I went to the Germany embassy in London once and they give you Haribo there. And once an old teacher of mine who loved the Haribo hearts got a packet of starmix that didn't have any hearts in them at all. They sent them back, wrote a letter and Haribo replied by sending her a kilo of hearts! I have no idea why I'm saying all these Haribo-related anecdotes haha. they're just really great sweets

    I LOVE the Milka Tender soo much! I come from Austria so we have some of the same candy here. But as a candy lover I think you totally have to try some more of german chocolate like some of the brand Kinder - it´s delicious!!

  26. Gigantic yums! Everything here looks so delightfully tasty - especially those elegantly cute little cupcake candies. They'd be tons of fun to put atop actual cupcakes for a meta dessert. :)
