What would you have done?
With visions of
of sheer delight?
(Yes, click on the picture!)
From the inside,
beckoning, their fragrance permeating the air.
The tidy bows calling you,
"Open me, pleeease!"
Passiflora edulis and Ladies' fingers waving at you,
with beguiling smiles, trying to entice you to step closer.
Even the letters on the wrapped boxes,
dancing in front of your eyes, join the chorus,
whispering, "Chocolatiers since 1786!"
And more sweet temptations lining up,
gesturing, beseeching you to deliver
them from their silver tray!
Die süßesten kleinen Naschereien.
I trust, you'd do as I did:
Give in to temptation,
enter the Kohlgraben Paradise,
and take the reward, for so much swift resolve:
The best Melange of all of Wien,
and fresh baked Cherry Strudel,
served with florish and grace,
by the one special Demelinerin.
That would be the closest place to heaven on earth for me!ReplyDelete
WOW! I put on weight just looking at the photos. :o)ReplyDelete
That is just Eeeee-vil! :-) Didn't get some to bring HOME too?ReplyDelete
ooooo! A diabetic's paradise!ReplyDelete
Try to catch the fruit only. :-)
I know, can't help, it's that mean strike that overcomes me every now and then. ;-)
Not only! ;-)
I meant "streak", of course (must be low on sugar, or what *g*).
It is a set of beautiful pictures of things I can taste but not really. Your photos are very good and the larger pictures make the temptation even greater. Nice work.ReplyDelete
Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting there.
Today I show Two robins fighting and I managed to capture them in the act.

You are welcome,
and thank you.
Demel's quality keeps me from getting tempted by all those other sweets that look so enticing all over Vienna. :-) I can well say, that Demel's keeping me on a good diet. Most of the time (and then, Strudels really are mostly fruit, wouldn't you agree? Five a day, or what were those recommandations?).
now i am full.
I have just finished eatingReplyDelete
it is too hard I takes which dessert
Oh, yes! I would do exactly like you did. Give in for the temptation.ReplyDelete
Oh, Merisi! Oh, glorious photos of glorious food!ReplyDelete
I enjoyed every single morsel!
Yes, yes, yes. I would have said yes to everything you showed, everything I saw. Magnificent beautiful everything.ReplyDelete
Ohhh !! Now I want to have them all !ReplyDelete
che dolci meravigliosi... quanta voglia avrei di mangiarne uno di ogni tipo...ReplyDelete
I'm crying... do they make ipoallergenic cake? ahahahahaa
Wow! What stunning pictures. You have captured some of the things I love most about Euorpe. I love the confections and the packaging too!ReplyDelete
Eeek.....I can't stand it!!!! It's all so gorgeous that I feel a bit dizzy!!ReplyDelete
Stunningly yummy pictures!!ReplyDelete
You are always welcome for an encore. :-)
If I eat anything there, it is usually a strudel, twice a year the Annatorte, better not start with "researching" here. ;-)
Cherry strudel there tastes out of this world. Unfortunately I cannot even begin to describe the taste sensations, otherwise I am banging at their front door before opening time today. ;-)
Thank you, I am glad you enjoy the simple pleasures Vienna has to offer. ;-)
I would have suggested staying with the cherry strudel. And then, tomorrow ...... As I have stated before, if I plan to sin, I know exactly where to head to. ;-)
Oh no, please, one piece a day, you will want to enjoy it, won't you? ;-)
I promise you, by the time you will visit them, there will be something there for you, too.
Did you know that everything, everything!, is hand folded and wrapped, even the tiniest confections? And then tied with lovingly selected ribbons? Finished with a beautiful gold printed sticker? Every time I watch somebody wrapping, they seem to ooze loving care into every little part of the process (not even starting to talk, how well they select only the very best of ingredients, whipping for example the cream by hand because the mixers they once experimented with didn't give the same mouthfeel to the whipped cream).
Maryam in Marrakesh:
Dizzying endless pleasure, well, hard to stand (or did you want to say "resist"? *giggle*)
Thank you, it's so easy with such willing and pleasing subjects. :-)
