I first tried the Mozart Black at a party at a friend's house in the summer time. A friend had brought a bottle from Europe to the United States. The taste was rich and smooth, with out the bitterness so many chocolate liquers can have. I looked for it in the United States and was disappointed when I could not locate it, especially in light of the fact I was just in Austria 6 months ago! I tried the Mozart product site directly but again was disappointed they do not ship to the United States. I was very happy to find that it was available online for shipping. This is by far the best chocolate liquer I have had and I do not think I will try another brand again. I have not had it straight as recommended by someone else. We had it in a mixed drink, but the chocolate flavor was strong and pure, and again not bitter. I would love to try the other flavors as well. Thank you Austrian Shop for making this product available to those of us in the United States who want to appreciate good chocolate liquer!
A friend had brought the Mozart Black home to the United States after a visit to Europe. I was blown away by the depth of taste. It was delicious! I could not find it in the US and was very happy to find it available to be shipped!
Still in love with these after all these years! I continue to share them with my friends who then share them with their friends and family and so the tradition grows. Still can't find anything in Australia to match them! Wunderbar danke!
I was an exchange student in Salzburg, Austria 2 years ago when I encountered this delicious chocolate. I have missed it so much because I am unable to buy it in the United States. However, I found this website and I would love to buy it. It is probably the best chocolate I have ever had. My host family used to have Hofbauer chocolates all year long because we were in love with them. Now everytime I go back to visit or if they send me a package I know I will be receiving Hofbauer chocolates because they are exclusively Austrian. Austria is a huge part of my life (including the delicious chocolate), so I cannot wait to return to buy some more or to receive another package in the mail with Hofbauer chocolate. I'm extremely excited for Hofbauer as usual. I know my parents like this chocolate as well as some other family members, so maybe I will buy some for them for Christmas or their birthdays because it makes an excellent gift. My favorite Hofbauer item is the Mozartkugeln because it is so exclusively Salzburg, which is where I lived when I was an exchange student. I want some Hofbauer!
My husband attended a conference in Baden in September this year and he decided to buy some local speciality chocolates for the family. As I am not such a big chocolate eater, I was not too excited when he returned with quite a number of bags of Johann Strauss Motzartkugeln. He asked if I wanted to try one of the chocolate balls, so I reluctantly took one. It was covered in dark chocolate (which made me even more reluctant, because I usually do not enjoy dark chocolate. To my utter surprise, it was one of the most delicious things that I have ever tasted and I just loved them instantly, so much so that I wanted to keep a few bags for myself. Unfortunately the bags did not last very long and I started to search the internet for ways to get my hands on more Johann Strauss Motzartkugeln. Thank goodness I have a family friend who is coming to visit from Switzerland and he will be able to bring me some quite soon. I am looking forward to a great Christmas and I envision myself eating Motzarkugeln non stop! These are truly a magical creation!
Recently, I spent six lovely days vacationing in Salzburg. Many days were spent walking in Old Town visiting the various paltz, but each day I stopped for a refreshing pause eating Mozart chocolates - absolutely wonderful!
