This has to be one of the more unusual things I’ve seen in the refrigerator in our kitchen: a four-pack of wee, yellow and white tubs with labels written in German and English.
These are Zott Monte puddings, creamy and rich dairy desserts featuring two flavors swirled together. Judging from the official Zott website, these little things are rich combinations of milk, hazelnuts and such ingredients as vanilla, chocolate, caramel, and cappuccino sauce.
The ones I found in the fridge are the hazelnut-vanilla kind, a gold and cream swirl that tastes gorgeous fresh out of the chill-zone.
You get the nutty taste of hazelnuts in the white portion of the pudding: a toasty, sweet flavor enriched by real cream. The yellow part is something you have to dig deep into the cup for, but you’ll be rewarded by the faintly floral taste of sweet vanilla.
These are the sort of puddings that would not come amiss after a dinner of spicy things such as curries or roasts marinated in a fiery rub: soothing, cooling, utterly delicious.
