A box of snacks from Germany
This box of snacks arrived yesterday. It was from sis's snack swap partner Tanja from Germany. The snacks are a mix of swiss and german goodies.
First one I tried was Jumpys. I liked the taste of these cheesy kangaroo shaped crackers. They taste like potato chips! lol
Next choice was Happy Hippo. These cute hippo shaped wafer are filled with hazelnut and milk cream. Yummy!
Then the Knödel. Tanja included an instruction on how to cook them. I had to boil them for ten minutes in salted water. She says they are a great side dish to pork roast, chicken or meatloaf. They are like bread dumplings.
I haven't tried them all yet but this one is my favorite so far! The Ovomaltine biscuits! We don't have these here in the Philippines so I'm sure gonna miss the taste. Theye are biscuits with choco malt fillings. They are like the Ovaltine drink here but the taste is different.
Sis and I both shopped for Tanja's goodies. She paid for the snacks and I was in charge of the shipping cost. If you are interested in joining the snack swap, you can visit It's what we do. This was actually the second package we got from the snack swap. The contents of the first box we got are here. It's fun exchanging snacks with people from the other side of the world! You get to taste what they snack on.
