I’m so lucky! Its a Christmas Candy Overload.



There’s nothing like a trip to World Market to make me feel like a candy chompin’ kid again. It’s so cold out, plus its finals week, so I have been hunkering down with some of my Christmas favs from Germany. I used to love receiving a chocolate Advent calendar every year before Christmas. Most of the calendars that you buy start on December 1st, just to make it easy, and count down to December 25th. With every day, you patiently wait for Christmas and presents, you are rewarded instead with a piece of Chocolate. These days, the chocolate is reward enough for me.


Kinder Chocolate is so delicious, there’s a white chocolate layer inside these smooth milk chocolate Santas. They are just like Kinder Eggs but without the awesome toy (that you have to put together).


In Germany, Marzipan Pigs are usually given as stocking stuffers or gifts around Christmas and New Years as a symbol of good luck. So when you snack on one these delicious almond piggys remember to think happy thoughts for the year to come and exclaim “Ich habe schwein gahabt!” or I have pig luck.
