Koln Bretzel Surprise

06 Feb


My favorite place to go in Germany is Bakery, Everywhere. Walking down the street the scent of fresh-baked goods in the air entices me. Maybe I’m a bit of a carb addict. My husband thinks I can nose-navigate from inside the car to the local backerei. Here’s the thing, though. If you drive 15 minutes down the road, there will be something different on display. Yes, you’ll always find kaiser rolls, but you may find a delight you’ve never seen anywhere else in Europe.

We came up on a beautiful square outside the church, saw the grand interior, and came back out to order tea and people watch on the platz. Low and behold, there was a bakery with something I’d never seen elsewhere. Bretzels (pretzels) are fairly common across the country, but his one was glazed with icing, striped with chocolate and covered in toasted almonds.

Another little bit of baked perfection abroad.

    Yes! I haven’t had one in so long. Maybe I’ll detour through there the next chance I get.
