5 Yummiest Foods in Europe So Far - by Eleanor

Ella's first blog post1) I found a chocolate that I love. It's called Babolada. My friend Chloe bought some in Serbia and let me have some. They sell it in Krakow too. I think they sell it all over Central Europe. It doesn't taste like bubbly soda, it just tasted like light chocolate, and it has lots of air bubbles in it.

2) There's delicious sausage at the market that they call pepperoni. It's like a fresh Slim Jim. They're super long - a foot and a half long - just one! They're also really thin. You don't even cook it -- it's basically cooked already.

3) There's this dumpling called pierogue, and it's really delicious. On the way to one of my favorite restaurants yesterday night we found a pierogue festival, and ate there instead. Some have really ground-up meat inside them. Some have cheese and potato, and maybe a little onion. Some are steamed and some are fried.

4) There's also this really good rich cake. We had it after the pierogue festival. It's really pretty. It was shaped like a really cool flower, and covered in pretty, glossy, green tasty stuff. Of course we didn't have the whole thing, just a slice of it. It had layers of peach filling, about five, and then cake under the layers. There was a weird candy-green onion thing on the side. It tasted like a candied veggie.

5) There's this really good drink called Almdudler. It's from Austria. It's an herb soda. It's super-duper good. The label is really cool/funny. This is how cool it is.

Good for you trying new food! We lived in England last year and Singapore in 2006. We have favorites from many of the places we traveled to.

I am dead now, of cuteness. Or some sort of diabetic coma. Sweet sweet sweet.

I forgot to mention, I especially like the picture of Ella at the computer. As if she is a junior reporter in the bullpen of the local paper trying to get this story out under a deadline.

Don't worry kid, you'll make editor someday.

Ella, I am so excited that you are blogging. And teaching us things! When I go to Europe, I want to look for all the things you tell us about, and see if I can find them, too. I hope you'll tell us more later. Please?

Hm. Now I'm hungry...

I loved your post Eleanor and the pictures really added a nice touch to the things you were talking about. Great job!! I'm so excited that you and your family are having this wonderful adventure. Keep writing about what is interesting to you in all your travels because it's so nice to hear how the trip is going from a younger person's perspective.

Wow, Eleanor, I wish I could have tasted that cake! Your description made my mouth water. Actually, everything sounded yummy. Thanks for sharing your favorites--so far!

Bobolada sounds like Aero bars. Hmm, not sure you have those here in the US.

Ok, I looked up the wiki:

It's sold primarily in the UK, but also Ireland, Argentina, Australia and Canada. Makes me want some chocolate. I guess I'll have an IsaDelight! LOL

Ella Bella,
Glad you found yummy food you like. When I get to Germany why don't the two of try out all the chocolate and see which we like best........then we can try out all the sausages, the cakes, the sodas................ I might have to drink a little wine too however.
Great yummy fun..........
Love you,
Nana June

I was thinking that chocolate sounds just like an Aero bar too, which I love! I'll have to look out for that now :)

Those Almdudlers look like their drinking beer! No wonder they look so happy/funny.

I don't know how it's pronounced there, but I'm going for 'u' like in dude. "Almadudler, he'sadudler, how' bout you?! "

OK, Ella! How much do I LOVE that your blog is about all the wonderful food you are trying on your new adventure! You are ... without question ... My Niece! I have a Mental "Food ScrapBook" from every trip our family ever went on. My cities are marked by the dishes I had there and the wonderful foods I ate in their presence. There is nothing at all that can beat the culinary joys of travel.

I can't wait to visit you and have you give me a food tour! I Love you dearly and am so very proud of you.

I also like Babolada. It is very testy. When I go outside of my home I bring it in my bag. Can you mention the name of some other chocolates?
