Readers' Choice: Karl Bissinger French Confections
If you've been to Germany, you may have seen her on supermarket shelves. You may have also spotted her on the knitted hat of Austrian Alpine skier Hermann Maier. Now, after years of only being marketed in Europe, you can find the purple Milka cow at Cost Plus World Market. Although the store sells Lindt from Switzerland, Perugina from Italy and Droste from Holland, only Milka, manufactured in Germany, has been scientifically proved to taste better than anything else in the world. It's the hazelnut paste -- and lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, the only Milka product on the Cost Plus World Market's shelves at the end of August was the Cookie & Creme Filled (butter cookies layered with almond paste, walnut paste and pistachio paste, covered with Alpine-milk chocolate).
