Be still my heart … if you’ve been following me on Instagram you can see I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with kinder chocolate. There’s just so much variety in Europe – I MUST EAT THEM ALL. Yes, this may be as bad as my Japanese kit kat obsession.
Kinder fwends – I jumped when I saw this in Vienna. It had baby sized versions of the kinder bueno, kinder country, kinder chocolate and kinder shoko-bons. Kinder schoko-bons are Easter egg shaped filled with white chocolate and hazelnut pieces and coated in a thin milk chocolate layer. It tasted okay but was nothing compared to the kinder country (one of my favourites besides the bueno) that had crunchy bits of cereal like rice bubbles covered in delicious Kinder white chocolate.
Kinder merendero (kinder joy) is the summer version of the kinder surprise – tear the two parts away and you have one half with the toy and the other with your chocolate. You get a little scoop to spoon the soft white and milk chocolate layers. There are also two chocolate wafer balls that contain hazelnut cream which tasted a lot like the kinder bueno. So fun to eat :)
The kinder range doesn’t stop in the candy aisle but creeps into the freezer section. Kinder pingui has two layers of milky white chocolate cream in between a small slice of chocolate cake and topped with a milk chocolate coating. Tasted quite nice compared to the kinder milch-schnitte (4th photo) which had a thick layer of white chocolate cream in between two slices of chocolate cake. I didn’t really like the cake that much :( Another find was the kinder chocofresh (2nd photo) which was in the shape of a hippo with a layer of delicious hazelnut paste and fresh kinder cream, all dipped in a thin layer of chocolate. So good.
Besides the freezer and candy aisle, kinder can also be found in the cake/biscuit section – what in the world is this!! There were so many types of kinder cakes but I chose the kinder panecioc (2nd photo) which had chocolate squished in between cake slices. A nice pick me up snack but nothing too amazeballs.
Wow who knew there were so many types of kinder! Was delicious to eat my way through them that gave a lot more hits than misses :D
