LOL, nope wasn't me Ms Speedy Elf, the coal candy was given to my husband. LOL

He worked for a coal company and it was on of the gifts from their many associates in the coal business. The hard candy comes with a miniture pick to break it into pieces.
One drawback of eating the candy, it made your tongue all black.

Snowytree, thanks for the post, I forgot to list some things and your post reminded me. How could I forget Eggnog, it was always a Christmas staple in my home growing up. My Dad always made it and drank it and he never got sick from it as they claim today you most likely will get sick. ummmm.

I´ll start of and add some pictures, so You can see what it is and looks like.

1. Christstollen - a type of cake with raisins and almond paste...or marzipan....it varies from area to area...but I think in the end...it almost tastes the same everywhere

2. Lebkuchen - Gingerbread...I guess You guys have that over here as well

3. Spekulatius - some type of cookies....kind of spicy...and very yummie....they have a nice form as well

4. Domino Steine -
the ones You see are cut open...I choose that pic so You can see what they are made of....it´s some type of jelly in the middle, almond past on top...and some dough on the lower part....surrounded with bitter chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate....however You like it.

5. Glühwein - hot spiced wine...very delicious....most it is red wine with some spices in it...cinnamon sticks, sometimes dried oranges, sugar and stuff like that....very delicious....and very much drunken at the Weihnachtsmarkt....I´m looking forward to it already....sometimes You get Glühwein from White Wine as well...but usually it´s red wine.

I will post more later or tomorrow...looking forward to the goodies of Your country and area.
My wife is from Vienna, and we generally spend Christmas there. I LOVE Domino Steine! In the US you can purchase them at World Market in New Orleans. I'm not sure how many cities have World Markets, but if any of you do have them on this forum, go get yourself a pack of Domino Steine! They're great. The company that makes the ones available at World Market is Bahlsen, which is also popular in Austria.

While we do have "ginger bread" in the US, I find it's not exactly the same as Lebkuchen, and certainly doesn't come in all the varieties you find in Austria/Germany. Actually, you can get some types of Lebkuchen at World Market too, also made by Bahlsen. I'm getting in a mood for snacking just writing about them!

I don't know about Germany, but in Austria it's still called Bahlsen. I bought some Contessa at Merkur last week!

alright I just checked it....officially it seems to be the Lorenz-Bahlsen brand...but I guess they kept it with Bahlsen in some countries....for whatever reason tho....over here in Germany...it´s Lorenz.....I hate it....since I grew up with Bahlsen

My husband is Dutch and his mum sends over a huge box for Sinter Klaas(Dec. 5th) and it has so many yummy goodies in it. Roomboter Letter (a flakey pastry with almond paste) you warm it in the oven and drink it with tea or coffee. Chocolate Initals for each one of the girls first names. Speculas a spicy cookie. Winter teas and all.

I'm from Maryland and I'm not sure that what I eat is that much different than everyone else in our country. I'm not sure if MD is known for anything special around the holidays; your typical holiday foods.
