Growing up in Germany, chocolate was always a special treat. Every year when Easter came around I took my little pink basket and collected chocolate eggs and chocolate bunnies in the garden. I always wanted to eat it all right away. But of course I was not allowed to. There are memories of me bursting into tears, because I wanted to eat my chocolate bunny. My mother to this day tells the story of me finding a little milka chocolate bunny by my bed side in the morning. I was about 3 years old and I am sure my parents just wanted to do a good deed. But when they awoke that particular morning it was very quiet in the house. They wondered why I had not called for them, for I was usually up early. And when they entered my room they found me in my bed covered with chocolate, peeling away on the foil that the milka bunny was wrapped in. and while I was holding it by the neck, very slowly the chocolate melted away and the head began to drop to the side. Turns out I was able to reach through the bars of my toddler bed and grab the bunny by the ears. And to this day nothing can stand between me and my chocolate treats.
I travelled to Bangkok & Vietnam in January 2013 with my husband & 3 children, on the way home we had a 6 hour stopover in Bangkok airport and as I perused the duty free shops came across this milka chocolate, buy 3 x 300gm bars & get 1 free, I bought the chocolate packed it in the bag, after arriving home we had a couple of pieces the following night with a cup of tea, the chocolate was all gone in 2 days, we are hooked, I can't find any in Sydney.
We first enjoyed these delicacies while in Vienna in 1997 for AdventSing. Our tour guide introduced them to us & they easily became one of our all-time favorite sweets. We had never tasted anything quite like them & soon were enjoying them on a daily basis. We also stocked up & brought several boxes home to our whole family; we have all been hooked ever since. I saved two of the boxes that we brought home, hoping to find them again here in the States, but I had not had any luck in the past & had finally given up, storing the boxes in a kitchen cabinet & hoping that I would eventually find a source for more of these incredible treats. I recently ran across the saved boxes while cleaning out that kitchen cabinet & decided to try searching online. After all these years, the delicious memory of those decadent chocolates was still very strong, prompting me to see if I could find them once again. I was thrilled to find your website & have the opportunity to order your yummy chocolates. My mouth will be watering with anticipation until they arrive, & I know just getting to enjoy them again will bring the memories of our trip to Vienna alive again. Wonderful!!
As a New Zealander this chocolate is so hard to come by, in fact you just can't get it in my home town. I first came across it when I travelled to Europe in 2009 and it is by far the best chocolate I have ever had, even coming across it again just recently, I can't even bear spend anything on other chocolate available here because it's by far no where near the taste of Milka (hence purchasing online of course!).
When I first bought it in 2009 I remember walking into the shop, I was immediately greeted in English, they knew I was a tourist straight away! I really was a child in a candy shop and after much time a friend suggested Milka. I bought it home to the family and they all love it now, my older brother loves the traditional milk flavour whereas my mother's favourite is the hazelnut, whenever I go to purchase some new Milka I check with the family, because it's my fault they got onto the stuff and so now it's my duty to check with them to see if they want any!!
I can't wait to get some more in the post!!
When I was in Austria I fell in love with this waffle. Usually I am not a waffle-person but Manner Schnitt made me eat one and I am very happy that I found my favorite piece of deliciousness. The cream has a very silky, chocolaty, nutty taste which I would never resist to have one. At the end this is a thing that a man must eat couple of hundred times in his lifetime
