My father was working on the movie The Lady Vanishes and brought home some of the Mozartkugeln as a gift for me, I was about 12 years old. I had never tasted a sweet like it and our family nickname was Mozart Eyeballs! I always try and get a box for Christmas but it is very difficult to find them in the UK, as they do stir memories of childhood. I saught them out when I was lucky enough to visit Vienna many years later.
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!!
Amazing delightful chocolates.. surprisingly so as many told me they did not like them .. I found these to be one of my favorite things of my entire trip on the Danube. Certainly the most delicious!
Are they available in the USA?
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…
When I was a senior in high school I visited Austria. I brought back a bunch of chocolate but this was by far my favorite. I had only brought 2 of the bars back but I tried to make them last as long as possible. Ordering the chocolate online will bring back many memories of my trip to austria. .
I have been to Austria twice since 2005 and each time I have to eat some of your great food but mostly STOCK up on this fantastic white chocolate liqueur. There really is nothing like it. It's creamy and perfectly sweet -- not too sweet but not underpowering. It's the perfect before dinner drink and the perfect after dinner drink. Each night in my hotel, I would use this Mozart White Chocolate as my nightcap. Sadly, the distributor in the USA stopped carrying this Mozart liqueur...actually all Mozart products. So, I cannot find it anywhere in the States. Thankfully, I head to Europe once or so a year so I can find some in London or Paris. Though, it's not the same as having it in Austria. I do have a trip planned to Vienna in 2013 and even though I am excited about seeing all of the sights (I've only been to Salzburg), I REALLY cannot wait to have some Mozart White Chocolate and take some home as well. Maybe I can even have some shipped home. It is sad that this liqueur is what I am looking forward to but that just proves how good it is!
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.
