The Best in German Chocolates to Try

Updated on August 12, 2013

German Chocolates. Just Plain Delicious

No one understands the art of chocolate like the Germans do (except the Swiss). I know this because I would spend weeks of my childhood in Germany experiencing all of its chocolate delights. Going to the grocery store was a joy because I knew a whole aisle of chocolate awaited me. In Germany, there is not just white, dark, or milk chocolate. There is chocolate with nougat, trauben-nuss, marzipan, yogurt, hazelnuts, and more than enough to keep you busy tasting for years.

Several months ago, I was found to have a yeast allergy which means a strictly no sugar diet. So instead of having a sugar breakdown, I am going to share my love and appreciation for some of my favorite mouth-watering German chocolates. Trust me, these are some delicious chocolates. How do I know? Months and even years later, I can still remember their sweet taste and texture. Good chocolate is like a great memory. Every time it comes to mind, it makes you happy and it never grows old. Now, join me for a mouth-watering squidoo!

Delicious ChocoKüsse - To mouth-watering to be found on Amazon

One of my favorite of all German chocolates is Choco Küsse. The best way to describe it would be a layer of wafer, with a marshmallow type filling, coated with chocolate and possible toppings. The last festival I went to, they were sellling Choco Küsse which were the size of my entire hands. Amazing and so delicious!

Mozartkugel was first made in 1890 in the German city of Salzburg by the Confectioner Paul Fürst. The Mozartkugel are a triple delight to eat. On the outside they are covered in dark chocolate, underneath is a layer of nougat which coats a small ball of pistachio marzipan. Marzipan, chocolate, and nougat? The match made in German chocolate paradise.

Not just for children. Kinder Schokolade. - Picture from: http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A4%D0%B0%D0%B9%D0%BB:KinderSchokolade.jpg

Kinder schokolade is a product specifically designed for children and is made by Ferrero Deutschland. I lived for this chocolate when I was little. The kinder chocolate seemed to be made especially for me with its petite size (I tried it once as an excuse on why we needed to get some...it failed). The taste is significantly influenced by the large amounts of milk used in their products and results in a mild and more milky flavor (those of you who love milk chocolate, this is definitely for you).

Kinder schokolade is perfect for all you milk chocolate lovers. Give it a try!

Sarotti Chcocolate - Picture from: http://foodphd.wordpress.com/2011/03/17/sarotti-die-kakaoschokolade/

Sarotti dates back to 1852 when Heinrich Ludwig Neumann began a candy store named Confiseur-Waaren-Handlung Felix & Sarotti in Berlin, Germany. In 1881, Hugo Hoffmann took over the store and changed its name to "Sarotti." The chocolate of Sarotti is known for its high quality and top-notch ingredients. They use only the finest to create bars of chocolate with exquisite taste for the gourmet connoisseur.

Sarotti's Chocolates & Liqueur

Sarotti is famous for their filled-chocolates. The picture above contains only a few of their different famous alcoholic fillings. They include: cherry liqueur, orange liqueur, eggnog liqueur, Marc de Champagne, almond liqueur, rum, and Williams pear liqueur. If you enjoy great chocolate with even greater fillings than Sarotti is the choice for you!

The Irresistible Nutella

This picture is of my older brother showcasing his love for Nutella. Even at an early age, he considered himself to be quite the food lover. You can tell just by his expression and posture towards the camera. My brother is in his mid-twenties now but other than growing older, his love for Nutella remains unchanged.

MMMM. Nutella Spread for Your Bread

One of the biggest misconceptions people have about Nutella is what it is made from. Many people believe it is like spreading pure chocolate on bread. No, Nutella is nothing like that. The product is made from hazelnuts with a bit of cocoa thrown in. Yes, hazelnuts not solid chocolate. The taste is sweet but not overly sweet and a perfect compliment to any morning/after/dinner time snack.

We used to have to bring these jars all the way from Germany to enjoy it at home. Now you can keep room in your suitcase because Amazon is able to send you all the Nutella you could ever want. Save room for souvenirs and enjoy a slice or two while you pack!

 

Have at a Hanuta Wafer Bar - Picture from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hanuta.jpg

Hanuta's are a German sweet produced by the company Ferrero. They consist of two wafers with a think layer of chocolate and hazelnut sandwiched between. The very term hanuta is merely an acronym for Haselnusstafel, the English translation meaning Hazelnut bar.

Hanuta for Sale on Amazon

When I was little, I would take off one wafer and eat it before munching on the rest of the Hanuta. Since becoming gluten-free (over five years ago), I have not had one. How can I recommend it? Even after all this time, I still can recall the perfect crisp of the wafers and the rich taste of hazelnut with chocolate.
