(My First) Macro Monday: Hanuta and Duplo





This is my first Macro Monday! :D

A friend is visiting us from Germany, and brought these chocolates along; my favorites. My parents are German, and I was the only one in our family to be born in the US, my brothers were born in Germany as well...so I love Germany. :) Whenever we go there, we take a bagful of German chocolate and candy. Yumm! When I was little, I LOVED Hanuta, but I called it "Tanuta" :-P.
Sooo anyway...These days, Hanuta has special joke stickers in it...The one in the picture says "I'm just unhappy with the whole situation..." haha. (I think...it's not that funny. :-P)

Hanuta is a kinda waffle cookie with hazelnut chocolate filling...and Duplo, when opened, resembles a Lincoln log...chocolate on the outside with a crunchy waffle filling. :)

Hope one day you all get to try some Duplo or Hanuta! It's delicious. :)

Thanks, everyone, for the comments!
Anika: Sunday Stills (the website) has a "challenge" posted each week of what you should take a picture of...a subject. It's pretty cool to visit blogs all over the place and see what how they made out with the challenge.
Macro Monday challenges you to use the Macro function on a digital camera. It's the little "flower" icon on the camera...the photos are taken close up and should show detail...
