One day I went to a Brazilian place to eat Brazilian burgers (more on that in a future post) with a few friends. Afterwards, we drove to a nearby Brazilian grocery store. They had lots of interesting things, like these Quail eggs.
They were so tiny! 10 calories each, too. It would take eight of them to equal the caloric value of the regular chicken egg most of us are used to, at least here in the US.
Where do ostriches live? Do people in those places take advantage of ostrich eggs? I saw either a Food Network show (ugh. Food Network.) or a Top Chef challenge where people had to cook with an ostrich egg. One person carefully carved open the thing & dumped the contents into a large measuring cup (that had the capacity of > 1 cup) and poured it that way onto the grill. One person tried cracking it open directly onto the grill and failed majorly.
There were lots of other interesting things, as well. The only thing I bought, though, was this Joghurt Chocolate.
I was intrigued at what it would taste and look like, and did not ponder about how they would make it so the yogurt filling would be shelf-stable. Milk or buttermilk powder?
I opened it in the store. And a quarter of the bar was gone before we left the store 15 minutes later. And let me say, I am not a huge fan of chocolate things. I don't prefer chocolate cake, ice cream, or even just plain chocolate, a lot of the time. I also refuse to have any chocolate, just as is, other than dark.
But I really enjoyed this bar. Here are some thoughts:
The chocolate was good. It was a Milka brand "Alpine Milk Chocolate" bar with a white filling that was supposed to represent the "Joghurt" (it's German) part. The filling was slightly tart, but definitely not overly so - it was tart enough to let you know it was a "yogurt" filling. I loved this bar, despite my supreme dislike of milk chocolate. Milk chocolate is more mellow and sweeter than dark chocolate, and the combo of milk chocolate with the just detectably tart filling was perfect.
I would not only buy a whole case of these and probably not get tired of them quickly, but I would recommend you to follow suit, as well. Or at least try the bar, if you can get your hands on it.
Disclaimer: I was not paid to review this product. I am not nearly big enough for companies to be sending stuff to me (haha! the thought!), and all of my reviews here are completely honest and my own true opinions. They have been and they will remain so for as long as I do them.
