I grew up on Kinderschokolade! The type that came in the form of a hollow egg used to have really good prizes inside, but eventually they got cheap.Do you know what I really miss? Schokolinsen (chocolate lentils). Like big M&Ms with a peppermint shell. I could eat heaps of those!
Hi Beth - those nuts are European walnuts which have a smooth outer green skin as opposed to the American Black walnuts which have a rough green skin.
Kinder!!! Italian children get too much of this and they trade the prizes, actually adults too, they're kind of collector's items. Yeah, the nut is a walnut. In my area we used to go pick them up around St. John to make a local liquor called , very appropriately, nocino (walnut= noce). But they had to be green!
i grew up on kinderschokolade too! my mom just came for a visit and brought some for ezra just like my grandmother used to do - and i swear she said, "there's milk in it. it's good for you!" lol... my mom also eats haribo gummy bears everyday. i kid you not. wow. your pictures are so wonderful. i've only been to switzerland once in my life, but feel like i'm getting to relive it a little with your pictures. i want that house too.
Okay, Nadja, I'm looking for schokolinsen next!!! Francesca...I didn't know you get get prizes. I have been buying boxes of the mini bars. I'm going to have to buy a bigger one to see what you're talking about! Anushka...so funny that your mother said that kinderschokolade is good for you! I like her garibo gummy bear regimen. My regimen is chocolate. I take it for medicinal reasons. (!) Rosemary and Francesca, thank you for telling me about the European walnut. I enjoyed learning that people make a liquer out of them. love, Beth
