Cake au Kirsch (CH)

Made in house by the COOP, this is a 3 layer cake with Kirsch alcohol and cream layers. The cake is slightly dry, the almond flakes on the side are soggy, but the Kirsch alchohol saves the cake. Overall, this cake is okay.

Migros brand of fine white chocolate. I am not a fan of white chocolate, but this white chocolate bar was surprisingly good. It melted in the mouth smoothly and the smell and taste of white chocolate lasted in the mouth. It was a bit sweet, but then most white chocolate is sweeter than dark chocolate.

This Frey dark chocolate bar is on the sweet and course side and not very smooth. The dark chocolate flavor is not accentuated. Nothing special about this bar. Teh cremant is probably my least favorite Frey chocolate bar.

The consistency of this desert is similar very liquid chocolate pudding (you can probably drink it with a straw). The chocolate flavor is not strong, but steadfastly present. For a chocolate desert, the taste and feel is surprisingly light and refreshing.

This bark is handcrafted by candy artisans and has pieces of pretzel in dark chocolate. The dark chocolate is very good, even according to my friend Katrin who has a high standard with all the Swiss chocolate she has eaten. The combination of salt from the pretzel and sweet from the chocolate gives this bark a unique and interesting taste, and the crunchiness of the pretzel adds a nice texture.

Compared to the USA M&M’s, the chocolate part of the ones manufactured in CH are a tad smoother (the chocolate in the USA M&M’s are a bit more course in comparison), just slightly less sweet, and has a stronger milk chocolate flavor. The candied shell and the peanuts are similar and the crunchiness and texture is almost identical to those made in the USA. The Swiss are very nationalistic, so this particular pack had red and white M&M’s. If some blue ones were added, this “Special Edition” pack can be marketed in the USA.

Very strong and good Kirsch liquid filling, but the milk chocolate is too sweet and not very good. The combination does give a nice
chocolate/alchohol taste as some other brands in this category. I like the Villars brand with dark chocolate better.
