what about those milk hearts? we were acquainted with them a couple of years ago in finland, when our norwegian friends brought some to a postcrossing meetup just to tempt us. they wrote this on the box:

it reads: “norwegian chocolate! want more? come to the international meetup in oslo…” so sneaky and clever!

alas, we didn’t make it that meeting in oslo, but luckily, in the meantime more freia chocolate hearts have made it to our mouths, as we were the recipients of a couple of boxes in a lottery gift last year — jackpot!

there are those storks again, and underneath them, a neat matrix of chocolate hearts!

the chocolate is creamy and mellow, and they are so thin that they immediately melt in your mouth once they land there. i like them like that: just an itsy-bitsy sweet indulgence with coffee or as dessert.

sounds like there are some pretty sweet reasons to visit norway soon… :P

kvikk lunsj

quick lunch chocolate

when we were back in germany earlier this year, some norwegian friends introduced us to kvikk lunsj (aka “quick lunch”!), a chocolate snack from their country. we already liked the brand (freia) for their their mellow chocolate hearts, so we were curious to try other creations.

traditionally this is a mountain snack — something to take on your trips into the wilderness, for when you might need a pick me up. once unwrapped, it looks a lot like a kit kat bar but with cute storks stamped on each chocolate finger.

and when you bite into it, the interior is pretty much like a kit kat bar too, made of crispy waffers covered in chocolate. no objections here and perfect for sharing!

one cute detail: the norwegian mountain code is printed inside! it says things like “plan your trip and inform others about the route you have selected” or “pay attention to the weather and the avalanche warnings“. my favourite: “don’t be ashamed to turn around” — sounds like good advice… and not just for mountain trips!
