I hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend! We honestly didn’t do anything too festive– dying eggs didn’t seem all that important with just the two of us here to eat them, and having a basket full of Easter candy lying around could be very dangerous. There is, however, one Easter treat I wanted to show you all.
Last week we were at the store getting some snacks and I noticed a seasonal-flavored kohuke, a little treat made of curd cheese with a chocolaty glaze and one of my favorite snacks ever. This brand of kohuke has a stripe across the bottom of the label identifying what flavor it is– some say vanilli (vanilla) or maasika (strawberry, of course). This one, however, says:
Tibu in Estonian means chick (as in a baby bird). Yum! Baby chicken flavored curd cheese. Luckily the small print on the label explains that it’s egg cream flavored with a chocolate glaze. But still, I wonder if the manufacturers realized how funny and mildly disturbing this label is. The strangeness is only amplified by the enthusiastic tagline Maitseelamus Eestist! — A taste experience from Estonia! That it is, for sure.
