Tanuki is smelling the cute marzipan frog from Pille in Estonia.
First a quick introduction what Euro Blogging by Post is all about. Every second month or so, European food bloggers send food parcels to each other. Yes, real food. And we even dare to eat it :-) Every participant gets an e-mail with the receiver’s address from the organiser (this time Johanna), posts a parcel with food to the receiver and then waits for another parcel in return from a secret sender. This is an excellent way of getting to know the other food bloggers and to try foreign food and ingredients. This time EBBP had a theme, childhood sweets. The round-up with all parcels sent and received can be found here.
I was so happy when I read the sender name for my ebbp#7 parcel on the dispatch note from the post office which I received yesterday. Lovely Pille from Nami-Nami, our Canadian apple cake queen from Estonia! And queen of rhubarb of course! The only small downside was that my husband voluntarly went to the postal department in our grocery store to pick up the parcel, but they were already closed so I had to wait until today to actually get the parcel. But the parcel sure was worth waiting for! Pille had prepared a great parcel consisting of her Estonian childhood sweets, a buttering knife from Tallinn, a cute cat fingerdoll and a brochure about Estonian food.
I immediately recognized the sweets with cows on them, Lehmakomm, as there is a Polish equivalent called krowki (small cows) which is one of my favourite childhood sweets! The marzipan frog is so cute that I don’t want to eat him (yes, I’ve decided that it’s a male frog), but as I love marzipan I will have to do it. I really like the sweets that I’ve tested so far and now I’ll have to hide the chocolate from my husband! :-)
Thank you Pille for a wonderful parcel and all effort, I really enjoy everything.
