Snack Time

Today I had a snack consisting of a Trocadero to sip on and a Semla to chew upon. The trocadero came in this pretty almost circus like bottle and was a light, sweet but not too sweet, juice of a soda which you can read more about here. I would definitely drink one of these again! Yummy!

And after seeming semla's around town and reading about them in the guidebooks I just had to try one. The one I purchased was from the grocery store so maybe it wasn't as great as all the hype, I'll try another from a quality bakery just to be sure ;) A semla is a cardamom bun with the top cut off and the the insides scooped out, then it is filled with whipped cream and almond paste, you can read some of the hype here. The cardamom bun was delicious but the filling was heavy and sort of blah. These semla's seem to be a religion around here so hopefully I'm more impressed with the bakery version. I'll keep you posted!

Love Always,
