delicious delight

Today on a random stop at the grocery store I happened to peruse the checkout candy, which honestly I never do in order to avoid temptation. I found a candy that I haven't seen in years.

Going back in time...when I was in High School I was an exchange student and I went to Austria. It was really wonderful and I'm still in touch with my host family who I love very much. While in Austria I developed a weakness for a particular type of candy called Mozart Kugeln. They were little round truffle-y balls of heaven.

Now my grocery store is carrying Mozart Piano Bars. The same candy in a bar format. The back of the package reads "finest pistachio marzipan and hazelnut nougat in a crispy milk chocolate." Yummmmmmmmm And it tasted just as good as I remembered.

Oh, yes, Mozartkugeln, we get them here too :-)

Sounds delicious! I've never seen them before.

That must have been an experience of a lifetime to have been an exchange student in a foreign country!

Being an exchange student truly changed my life, it was amazing. My oldest child just came back from her year abroad and it changed her life too. It opens up your whole world and changes your point of view.
