Stock up on Lebkuchen gingerbread before they are gone for the year!
These cute little Santa's are just the right size for munching, Look how cute the two hiding behind the snow covered trees are. We should eat them first! These Riegelein chocolates are of the finest quality.
There are only a few of the Riegelein Assorted packs left. They contain a Santa and a Father Christmas, three solid milk chocolates with a foil design of a rocking horse, a bear and an auto. Zoom, Zoom!
Also in this mixed tray are two fondant eggs, as well as a fondant star & a heart. The chocolate covered filled star and wreath are very yummy and the crunchy non-perils go well with the deep chocolate flavors. Rounding the assortment out are two fruity European style gellee candies.

Check out Life by Chocolate This is a chocolate maker that is another Foodbuzz featured publisher. They make organic, free trade and vegan varieties of truffles and bon bons.
They make both a milk and dark chocolate gianduja and here is what they say about it:
"A beautiful blend of dark chocolate and hazelnut butter in a milk chocolate shell to create a confection of pleasing proportions. Enjoy this Italian puppet inspired delight. How could you go wrong? ."
One of my families favorite treats is marzipan. Here is a picture of Life by Chocolates freshly made marzipan- it looks so delicious and creamy, I love the almond on top!
Here is a list of marzipan that we have at our store.
As I have said before marzipan is said to have been invented in the Middle East. It is interesting to me that there is a Mexican marzipan that is made of peanuts not almonds! The actual size is about a half dollar and about 1/2 inch thick.

This is an FYI. I love using stevia
STEVIA EXTRACT APPROVED AS FOOD ADDITIVE BY WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION !!!!! Last week in Geneva, the JECFA ( Joint Expert Committee on food Additives) of the World Health Organization approved the use of steviol/glycosides ( the sweet substances of the stevia leaves) as a safe food additive and assigned a ADI ( accepted daily intake) of 4 mg/kg of body weight. This means that in the future all European Countries will be allowed to use stevia extracts not only as a sweetener but also as flavor enhancer in many food applications. This is a great victory for the consumer and brings a great deal of satisfaction and sense of accomplishment for Steviafarma/Stevita which since its inception in 1988 believed and worked hard to make stevia a safe, healthy and natural food to be enjoyed by millions of consumers around the world. During the last few years many companies, with very little or no experience in the stevia business have indicated their intention to enter in this business. We welcome this interest and the positive awareness that it brings about the benefits of stevia as a natural non-caloric sweetener. Years of experience, and as leaders in the agricultural and extraction phases of the stevia business allow the Stevita brand stevia a deserved ranking as the best in quality and the favorite brand of stevia in the US and world markets. Here is a nice review of Virgil's diet root beer at Forever a kid blog.
