Golden Grapes Strudel
If the quality of a strudel were measured
in Karat, Demel's strudel would be 24-Karat, handily.
Paper-thin dough so crisp and tasty,
carrying just the right buttery taste,
exquisitely juicy fillings,
I know of no other place that carries this off
with such perfection!
*) The B-Word
Yes, you guessed it right,
I simply didn't dare translate the name of that
sweet round ex
I called Demel's only minutes ago,
in the hopes that they'd have a less
name for it.
But no, they sweetly confirmed my suspicion! :-)
The B-word dates back from the good old days,
when the sight of such a sweet concoction would
conjure nothing but the taste explosion you were about to experience
when it went past your lips.
I loved to eat Schwedenb
a chocolate covered marshmellow confection,
back when I was a little girl.
I still can remember the oh so promising crackling sound
when you bit into the thin dark chocolate cover,
and the soft light texture of the filling,
melting on your tongue instantly.
Coming to a neighborhood near you?
