International Snacks Feast-Belgium(1)








Whoop!!!Finally,here comes the first post of my new event,"International Snacks Feast!"In case,you haven't read my previous post,I'm here explaining a bit again.In brief,this's an event that we exchange snacks from each other's country.If you're interested in joining me,you can take a look this post.

My friend Lisa,who sent me the parcel,is from Belgium.It's her proposal that inspired me to come up with this idea.I really find it interesting.

It took a bit longer than I expected to receive the package.On the moment I saw it,I realized what happened.It was kept by the customs and opened up for checking.Sadly,there's a glass bottle was broken.Fortunately,others stuffs are safe and sound.So If you guys are gonna send me stuffs in glass,it'd be safe to wrap them with something.

Obviously,Belgium is known for their amazing chocolate products.I really love those stuffs Lisa sent me.Especially,I'm so impressed by the praliné.I've heard about this particular word for chocolate,but I was not so sure about the definition so I found an explanation from wikipedia.
Praline can refer to confections made from nuts and sugar syrup,whether in whole pieces or in ground powder,or to any chocolate confection containing the ground powder or nuts.Belgian pralines are different,they consist of a hard chocolate shell,with a softer,or sometimes liquid,filling.French pralines are a combination of almonds and caramelized sugar.American pralines from New Orleans also contain milk or cream and are therefore softer and creamier,resembling fudge.
You may have noticed that the pack on the right side of the first picture looks so cute.It suggests that you can have a hot chocolate in the twinkling of an eye.Lisa told me to put a stick into a cup of hot milk to make it as hot chocolate.It's interesting to do that.The milk became pretty tasty with the flavor of chocolate but I don't think it's a good idea to just eat the chocolate,since it's a bit too sweet for me.

It has been such a long time since my first try of orangette from Godiva.I like the way to combine orange and chocolate.If you are fond of chocolate but not really a sweet tooth,I think you'll like this.

Last but not least,those two cans are "Teririne Campagnarde" and "Terrine de canard au jus de Truffes."Well,I don't really know how to explain those words,but basically,the former is a spread of pork ,while the later is a spread of duck.Those two just taste delicious!Me and my mom are so in love with the  duck's flavor,we just served it with salmon and baguette for lunch today.

So this's the first post of International Snacks Feast!How do you like it?
