Breaking news (chocolate related)! / Zhava novinka (cokoladoveho razu)!

ATTENTION to all fellow Czechs and Slovaks (or anyone who likesΒ  good chocolate): You will be happy to know that Target now carries Milka – the best German chocolate ever. Unfortunately, it carries only one type, which is the ‘boring’ milk chocolate Milka. My all-time favorite is yogurt Milka, which still has not made it to the US.

I took that picture in Target so that you know I am not making things up πŸ˜‰

CZ: POZOR, DULEZITE HLASENI! Target nyni prodava cokoladu Milku. OPAKUJI: Target nyni prodava cokoladu Milku!!!! Je to sice jen ‘nudna’ mlecna cokolada, ale snad nam brzy dovezou zajimavejsi prichute, jako je napriklad jogurtova Milka – moje oblibena!!

If you liked this post buy me a coffee! (Suggested:$3 a latte $8 for a pound) Thanks!

    When I was studying in the US, this was one of the things that I missed the most:)) Good that Target finally decided to bring the best chocolate ever:)

    Milka already sometime is not a German chocolate…..It may happen that those in Target are produced in Slovakia or in Ukraine…..

  • Eva Z May 11, 2011, 6:17 am

    Great news! I love the one with whole hazelnuts. Hopefully they will bring the other kinds too! πŸ™‚

  • Vlastimil May 11, 2011, 7:12 am

    And those produced in Ukraine glow in the dark πŸ˜‰

  • Marika May 11, 2011, 7:29 am

    Cost Plus also carries the famous Kinder Chocolate. It does not glow in the dark though:)

  • Vlastimil May 11, 2011, 9:35 am

    Do you mean Kinder Cocolate Eggs? I thought they were banned in USA….

  • Katka May 11, 2011, 10:48 am

    Tanya, I love the yogurt ones too. But I thought for sure you would soon post about PeΕ‘Γ‘k passing away. Afterall, you sell his t-shirt on your advertisments :-/

  • MariKa May 11, 2011, 11:29 am

    Nechci ti prset na paradu πŸ˜‰ anebo, jak to rikala MariKa…Vlastimilovat…. ale tady je jeden post co jsem nedavno dala na muj blog a ten mi otevrel oci na chokoladu! I kdyz alespon kdyz to krupe tak si muzu rikat mnam, ceske mouchy ;)))))

    MUST LOVE BUGS
    by MK
    Want one? Can you believe the average chocolate bar has about 8 bug legs!! One chocolate bar contains both rodent hair and insect parts. Granted, you’ve been eating bugs most of your life. Yes, you have. If you eat candy, baked goods, or any processed food, you’ve had your share of Kerria lacca excretion, in other words, bug poop, that candy makers use. You’ve also eaten Carmine, a.k.a. ground-up cochineal red beetles, found in yogurt or ice cream. You may be big on peanut free, dairy free chocolate, but good luck finding bug free chocolate. There are whole bug parts and rodent hairs in your average chocolate bar. There’s no escaping it. Tiffany’s chocolate, which costs a pretty penny, may be higher in cocoa content, with added limes or chili pepper flavoring, but it too contains ‘natural flavors’. So, is organic chocolate better? You wish! Organic chocolate includes organic cacao beans, organic raw sugar, organic milk and – hello! – ‘natural flavors’ Also, organically grown plants are not sprayed to protect them from insects, hence for all you know an organic cocoa plant could be a bug party house. If you’re a vegan, your only choice may be carob. Carob is insect free. If you don’t mind a bug or two, your best best is to buy Belgian. Tested as the chocolate with the lowest bug ratio. Sad, but true, if you love chocolate, you must love bugs!

  • Vlastimil May 11, 2011, 12:36 pm

    If the bugs are organic, I don’t care… I know the yoghurt with strawberry contains lot of bugs. They are cheaper than strawberry and are pretty crunchy…. And it is source of protein….The same goes for chocolate …..

  • Tanja May 11, 2011, 2:51 pm

    Vlastimil, this one was made in Germany – I specifically looked for that.

  • Tanja May 11, 2011, 2:54 pm

    Katko, no way! Pesak died!!! I missed that news completely! I bet Mladek is pretty sad right now. Thank you for informing me – I got to tell that to my husband, that guy was his favorite. Well, at least he got some huge wave of fame right before he died. We are STILL selling those Jozin z Bazin T-shirts!

  • Tanja May 11, 2011, 2:55 pm

    MariKo – bugs in chocolate do not bug me at all. It tastes delicious either way and – as Vlastimil said, it’s more protein πŸ˜‰

  • Tanja May 11, 2011, 2:56 pm

    What’s the name of the one Milka that has ‘holes’ in the chocolate? It’s funny you end up paying money for air but for some reason the air tastes really good.

  • Vlastimil May 11, 2011, 6:12 pm

    Actually the chocolate has the same name as my wife. Sometimes I get really confused πŸ˜€

  • Marika May 11, 2011, 8:22 pm

    Vlastimi I don’t mean the eggs just the chocolate and the susenky covered with kinder chocolate. Why are the eggs banned do you know?

  • Tanja May 11, 2011, 9:11 pm

    Vlastimile, tvoje manzelka se jmenuje Milka? Jako Miluska? No to je hezky!!! Tak to uz vsichni vime, jaky darecek dostava ke svym jmeninam – tuny cokolady Milky, vid?

  • Vlastimil May 12, 2011, 3:52 am

    Tanja, jmenulje se Emilia, ja ji rikam Mila, a nekdy, Milka πŸ˜‰

  • Vlastimil May 12, 2011, 3:55 am

    Marika, the eggs are banned because of the toys in them. Stupid children tend to eat those toys.
    I took care to teach my children to distinguish food and toys. It is possible to buy the Kinder eggs in Russian stores…. When they sell them, they are immediately gone….

  • Vlastimil May 12, 2011, 3:57 am

    Tanja, ano, vzdy ji kupuji chokoladu Milka, Ale jinak mame radsi Godiva a Lindt,,, A pak mam tady jednoho, kdo dela cokoladu sam, je to vyborne a nepouziva corn syrup…..Ja se vyhybam vsemu, co ma corn syrup. Corn syrup je zabijak,,,,

  • Katka May 12, 2011, 6:55 am

    Tanjo, he died of a heart attach in Prague. :-(( Yes i saw that the t-shirts were still for sale. I plan to get one but I have friends and family in CR who are coming in May and I’m afraid to buy one before then. They know I love PeΕ‘Γ‘k. In fact, I knew he died because they called me immediately to tell me at 7:30 in the morning! They always bring me a present and perhaps they might just bring me the shirt. If not though, I plan to purchase one from the site πŸ™‚

  • Marcela May 12, 2011, 11:08 am

    They carry different types of Milka at World Market/Cost Plus. I love hazelnut Milka. πŸ™‚

  • Jana V May 12, 2011, 3:44 pm

    Actually Target has carried Milka for quite awhile. Our local Target has three or four different ones.

  • Tanja May 12, 2011, 10:10 pm

    You serious??!!! You are so lucky!!! I guess your Target is more ‘sophisticated’ then mine πŸ˜‰
    By the way, the Ritter Sport chcolate is also VERY good.

  • MariKa May 13, 2011, 12:10 am

    Come on you guys. You know you can order almost anything online these days. Except for rohliky.

  • Marika May 13, 2011, 7:59 pm

    I like the Ritter chocolate too. I saw it today in Wal-Mart, hazelnut my favorite:) I make my own rohliky and housky, z nouze ctnost.

  • Juanita May 26, 2011, 10:22 am

    Tanjo, try World Market, they carry at least 3-4 different kinds. http://www.worldmarket.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3807589
    P.S. I really like your blog!

  • Tanja May 26, 2011, 8:55 pm

    Juanita, thanks so much!
    I have heard of World Market – I wonder if they mail stuff – I got to check into it! Or rather not, it may be kind of dangerous getting 10 bars of chocolate in the mail one day πŸ˜‰

  • Elisabeth June 1, 2011, 5:41 pm

    I am not sure which chocolate is better- Milka or Studentska Pecet ? πŸ™‚

  • Elisabeth June 1, 2011, 5:46 pm

    Milka used to be one of my favorite chocolates when I was growing up. My grandma used to bring me some cool flavors from Germany even before they started selling Milka in Czech Republic (Czechoslovakia back then). My favorite used to be the regular milk chocolate and the white chocolate. I also loved Studentska Pecet chocolate. They sell Milka at World Market (Cost Plus) as well. Since I no longer eat dairy products I do not eat Milka πŸ™ I do eat other non-dairy chocolates though.
    Tanja, I added your website with a link to my website under Blogs I β™₯. I really enjoy reading your website!

  • Tanja June 1, 2011, 8:58 pm

    Hmmm Studentska pecet!!! I have not had it for years!!!

    Hey I saw you published a cookbook on your blog – congratulations! Maybe you could tell us more about it? I will write you a personal email and we can chat a bit more..
    PS: Ditto with your site – it is also on my ‘Links’ page. Thanks!!

  • Elisabeth June 2, 2011, 5:59 pm

    Tanja, thank you for the link πŸ™‚ I haven’t published my cookbook yet (still working on it), I only published one recipe in the cookbook that you saw on my blog. It is the top picture Chocolate Raspberry Tofu Pie πŸ™‚

  • Tanja June 2, 2011, 9:44 pm

    Upps! My bet! Well, I am sure you will publish yours very soon πŸ™‚
