We were stationed in Erlangen Germany when our children were very small...There was a bakery that we would stop by every day when we would go down town to shop or ride the bus...We would always purchase these they are so yummy...They were chocolate on one half and almond/white on the other half...The kids loved these as myself....I don't have a picture yet so I have put a free picture of a Erlangen Bakerei till I have one...
