The Hague has been enjoying his hopjes and the Zealands since their memory of humanity, their Babbelaars. But Rotterdam had their teeth full of teeth for centuries when asked for their traditional candy. Until now, since next week, the candy can be found in Rotterdam. The candy has been added as 'the building blocks of Rotterdam'. This refers to the rich architecture of the city of Maas and reconstruction. Ingredients include spicy cinnamon and a touch of mint. That causes a tingling feeling on the tongue. The candy is produced in Rotterdam by Rotterdammers and packed in a box with the skyline of the city. LINK Rotterdammertjes

Quality Bulgarian wine you’ll find here

@ Vino Orenda

Our concept is that we offer wines not from large wineries that are familiar to the general public, but emphasize on small family, boutique, craft wineries. Each bottle has passed through us, through our personal selection, we have tasted it, we know where it comes from. What matters to us is not only the actual wine itself – as a value, vision and product, but the whole process and the people behind it, what is their idea for the creation of wine culture itself. Nowadays many wineries work with environmentally friendly practices for certified organic production and naturally, doing this in Bulgaria, creates a product with a very high value that we want to be familiar with, not just a bottle and a label. So for us it is important to know the history, the small details, even gossip about a producer and everything associated with them. LINK read more
