Was ist das?

I may not speak German, but I do speak the international language of candy. Today was traveling-German-food-truck day, so I went to load up on some bockwurst and saw this:
Click the photo to see what’s inside.
I asked one of the German ladies what it was, and she kept telling me it was soft and fluffy, and I thought she meant meringue. She said people either like it or hate it. Later I saw an English translation on the side of the box: chocolate-covered MARSHMALLOW. Major score. Here is one with a bite taken out of it:

And one final candy-related item. Check out this fabric that Jan sent:

Don’t you want to eat it? I’m thinking about making a pillowcase with it so that I can have candy-filled dreams …

    “international language of candy.” I laughed out loud at that. You’d make a great candy spy.

    That was my very favorite candy EVER when I was a kid, imported by relatives direct from Switzerland. We called them the politically incorrect name of morenkopfe (sp.). Microwave?! Geez, learn something new….

    Honestly, Mariko, I’ve never known anyone so obsessed with candy. You’re insane. In the sweetest way, of course. xo

    Hi Mariko, this candy also exists in France and is known as “tete de negre”, which means “nigger head”. It is a pretty unrespectful name and many people actually wanted to rename the candy a few years ago! Regardless, they’re very good 🙂
