A friend introduced me to this chocolate/marzipan deliciousness and I've been hooked ever since.
We are buying Mozartkugeln as a birthday present for a neighbor who was born in Salzburg. I have tried Mozartkuglen and they are delicious!
I had been to Salzburg 4 years ago with my husband and kids. I tried Mozartkugeln and loved it as well as my kids. We always had it for the road. Though we spent a short time at that time in Salzburg, it was enough to understand that this was the real taste of high quality. chocolate I brought 3 boxes to take with me back to my home country Egypt .I gave a box to my mama, She liked it so much as it is exactly her taste of that smoothie soft high quality choclate she loves. Since then she's been waiting for my next visit to Austria to bring her some more. The second box I gave to my father in law who adored chocolate . He loved it so much but it's a pity I can't get him more as he passed away. The last box I kept for my family and friends who visited me. My dream of returning back to Austria is going to be true very soon Vienna I am coming on Nov. 02 and I hope I could see more of you and enjoy my favourite chocolate which we don't get in Egypt. I 'll make sure to bring some with me back to my home country Egypt.
hola! hace un par de años mi marido y yo estuvimos visitando a un familiar que vive en Munich y tuvimos la oportunidad de hacer un poco de turismo por la zona. Uno de los días cogimos el coche y lo dedicamos a ir a Salzburgo, debido a la proximidad. He de decir que me encantó la ciudad y pasamos un día genial. Yo ya había oido hablar de este tipo de bombones, pero no los había probado nunca y la verdad pensé que no me iban a gustar porque soy más de bombones sólo de chocolate, no de mazapán. Pero bueno, estando allí sería imperdonable no comprar una cajita, así que entramos en una de las múltiples tiendas que los venden y nos llevamos una, pequeña. Nada más salir de la tienda abrí la caja para probarlos y la verdad es que me encantaron!! me parecieron uno de los mejores bombones que he probado nunca, y de una vez me comí tres, es decir, entre mi marido y yo nos acabamos la caja que acababamos de comprar. Volvimos a entrar y esta vez nos llevamos una caja más grande para nosotros y un par de cajas más para regalar. Ya de vuelta en España le llevé a mis padres una de ellas como detalle y la verdad es que a mi madre también le encantaron, todavía a día de hoy me habla a veces de lo que le gustaron estos bombones. Como se acerca ya la época navideña quiero regalarle una caja, porque sé que le hará mucha ilusión , pero no los encuentro en ningún sitio, y de momento no tenemos ningún viaje previsto dónde los pueda comprar. Menos mal que he encontrado esta web, así podré hacer un pedido online y volver a probar estos deliciosos bombones.
My grandma was born in Vienna and we spent many summer holidays with my great grandparents in Vienna - I remember Mozart kugeln as one of teh iconic things associated with Vienna -they are delicious!
Well. I am from Konstanz in Germany. Frankly, I had never ever heard of Mozartkugeln. So why am I here ordering these things? Well, it is a long story. But to cut a long story short, let me start. My work among others involves inbreeding depression and in reading literature on the subject I often came across the words “lethal equivalents”. I could not exactly figure out the meaning of that, and so I started digging, until I found a paper with the promising title: Lethal Equivalents and Genetic Load. I was pretty sure the answer would be in there, but this 1992 paper was only available behind a paywall. So, what does a scientist do? Pay? Not with my current funding level. Give up? Never ever. This leaves one option, to write the authors of the paper. And against all odds, I found one of them, at least I thought. He turned out to be the editor, and did only have a paper copy. So I tried one of the other authors. But in the meantime, the nice editor had actually scanned the chapter for me! Hurrah! The only favor he asked in return was a box of Mozartkugeln. They turn out to be from Salzburg. Which is not so close to Konstanz. Hence my attempt to find them online. And, Dutch as I am, I could not resist trying to get them for free. I am sure this boring story interests absolutely noone. But I sure hope it will win me a voucher with which to buy the desired Mozartkugeln…
I first tasted Mozart klugen when I visited Salzburg with my husband - a huge Mozart music fan. My father-in-law adores these, and I always buy them for his birthday/chirstmas. They are eaten with relish!!

I am from Denmark. I visited Salzburg some years back, I was there i relation with my work. My company office were very close to an aoulet shop with all kinds of Mozart chocolate. The last day we were there we visited the shop, and wauw... this was the real thing. I bought so much chocolate and filled up every empty space in my suitcase. Flying home I lost my suitcase, and I wa really worried that I lost my precious Mozart chocolate - but I was lucky, my suitcase showed up a week later and I could give the chocolate presents to my children and family, and last but not least - eat some more myself :) I am telling everybody who wants to listen about this experience I had back then. Mozart chocolate is still one of my favorites and it is worth paying a little extra to get this delicious taste. And I am dreaming of going back to Salzburg some day, to see more of this beauteful city (not just work) and see if the shop is still there, and fill up my suitcase once more :) I may actually be going this summer with some friends, that will be so great :)
When I was child, we had a Wiener Sängerknabe as a visitor in our family, when they were doing a concert in our region. I don't even remember his name or face anymore, but I remember his daddy had a Porsche and the Mozartkugeln, their wonderful taste, he brought. Since then, I know how unique they are and I like them a whole lot. And now for Christmas (and for my birthday) they're my gift for me and perhaps some people close to me. So, Merry Christmas and the Lord's blessing to all of you!
I don't like chocolate, but when I was in Austria in the mid-1970s, I tried some chocolate candy in Salzburg and loved it. Fast forward a few years and lo and behold! The candies were being sold in gourmet shops and they were referred to as Mozart Balls. Then, they disappeared. I couldn't find them anywhere. It's nice to see that thanks to the Internet, one can get them again. They're addictively delicious!
