Alpia Torinos

As a kid, I hated bridge mix. You never knew whether you were getting a nut or a raisin, and I hated chocolate covered raisins at the time. Now they are a real treat.
One equivalent in Germany to American bridge mix is this bag of crunchy dragees. There are almonds, hazelnuts and raisins in this package, and they are covered in dark, milk or white chocolate.
These were good but not great. The luck of the statistical draw gave this bag just one raisin. Too bad. Maybe I’ll have to buy a bag of chocolate covered raisins as well.
The chocolate was good, but I could hardly taste a difference between the dark and the milk chocolate. It was nice to enjoy both hazelnuts and almonds rather than the filler things like nougat.
