Stealing Mozart Balls?
Yuletide Mischief in Vienna


One fine morning before Christmas
I was hurrying past Café Mozart


when I noticed someone had ripped
open one of the giant Mozartkugeln


hanging from the cafe's Christmas trees -
ever since, I can't sleep because
I feel that need to know whether
the thieves found real chocolate balls
or not

  2. An intriguing title Merisi - I suspect that if they had contained chocolates then all the golden Mozartkugeln would have been opened. However, they do make very attractive and sophisticated decorations for the trees.

    1. Excellent reasoning, Rosemary (Private Eye)! ;-)
      I only started thinking about real chocolates when I put together the blog post. The interior of the giant balls is quite beautiful, almost too beautiful not to be seen. At least I did not expect it.

  10. Brings back memories of munching the best of the best in Salzburg. They do make such lovely decorations and am sure that whoever broke it open was disappointed otherwise a lot more would not have survived.

  11. I can certainly understand the temptation. Chocolate rules! What would life be without Mozartkugeln?
