Thomas Henry Ginger Beer: A German ginger beer made by Thomas Henry; meant as a mixer, but truly fantastic on its own.

The packaging suggests pairing with a hot beverage, which I believe would help, but on their own, these snacks are a pass. 2.0/5.0

Niedereggen Marzipan: Marzipan coated in a thin layer of 71% dark chocolate. Fantastic nutty flavor that isn't too sweet. Love that the chocolate is so thin and doesn't overwhelm the marzipan. A special German treat. 4.5/5.0
