Well, I have on more Chocolate blog and this was given by my friend, Araceli T. E. from Norway!!! We met for our reunion and I was one of the favored classmates to be given the FREIA TWIST (2 NYE BITER)!!!

Here are some other things about FRIEA from Wikipedia:
Freia is a Norwegian chocolate candy manufacturing company. The company is famous for Freia Melkesjokolade and Kvikk Lunsj, as well as for other candy and dessert products.

The company was founded in 1889, but real success was seen only in 1892, when Johan Throne Holst (1868–1946) took over management. Holst realized that there was a potential market for edible milk chocolate, in addition to thedark chocolate and other minor products Freia were producing at the time. Holst built up Freia to be Norway's leading chocolate manufacturer. By the turn of the century, Freia was the leading Norwegian brand in sweets. Since its inception the factory has been in the Rodeløkka neighborhood in the borough of Grünerløkka in Oslo.
Based on the success in Norway, the Throne-Holst family in 1916 founded the chocolate factory Marabou inUpplands Väsby outside of Stockholm in Sweden. The name Freia (or Freja) could not be used due to a conflictingtrademark in Sweden. The name Marabou was chosen instead from the Marabou Stork, the species of bird on the Freia logo.
Freia was purchased in 1993 by Kraft Foods Nordic, for NOK 3 billion. The company’s flagship product has since then been the Milk Chocolate candy bar, Freia Melkesjokolade. On the basis of this famous product, Freia produces several other candy bars, with added nutsraisinscookies and Daim pieces. The brand has constantly been marketed in a national romantic spirit - as the essence of everything that is Norwegian. Their slogan is "A small piece of Norway" (Et lite stykke Norge).

There are several chocolates in my Freia Twist bag = = with caramel filling, coconut, banana and apricot  fillings, nougat, nuts, toffee, dark chocolate and lots more !!!

Interesting, right?!?!?!

And remember, the chocolates taste sweeter when we remember our friend who gave the chocolates to us! Thanks, Cel!

Unfortunately, Freia isn't so readily available in our side of the world... Hope you can also try it out someday!!!
